Venezuela appeared to be more developed than I ever thought it would be.

“”Bush would have the CIA in action supporting this.””

Don’t make me laugh so hard. Bush did nothing while in office to shut down this a$$clown.

I think it’s too late for the people of Venezuela.

They should have done this YEARS ago.

Now they’ll just be shot and arrested...

I was referring to this attempt at intervention, not Chavez, and hoping there were other instances: http://blogs.abcnews.com/theblotter/2007/05/bush_authorizes.html

It’s likely there will be casualties and Yup, this is one battle that should have been fought years ago.. but soon, the military will have to choose sides and the direction they want this country to head.

I wish the people of Venezuela success in ridding themselves of their socialist overlords, and am looking forward hearing about Chavez going all “Mussolini” from a lamp post in downtown Caracas.

Venezuela was actually one of the best countries in LatAm until Hugo managed to seize it with a combination of Castro funding and calling himself “black” to grab the populist position.

VZ tried to get rid of him in 2002, and the US basically let them down (under Bush, who initially supported their attempt to remove Hugo and then, as usual, backed down when the Dems complained) and reinstalled Hugo.

Go Venezuela! They need to Twitter more. I went to my Tweet Grid to look for stuff on VZ and I got ads for bookkeeping services...

Honduras kept in touch through Twitter, and folks in VZ should do that too.

I think these protests are going on in Colombia and elsewhere.

Are we SURE these are happening in Venezuela?

They should have protested this hard before they gave Chavez rule for life. Unfortunately we’re on the same road.

I guess some demonstrations ARE happening in Caracas, but the pro-Chavistas (union thugs) have been ordered to fill the streets and rally FOR socialism.

Protests are taking place in 144 cities around the world.

Venezuelans: next time Chavez is arrested and pulled out of power — pull the freakin’ trigger.

Bloomberg.com is reporting on this demonstration:

http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=aKToujls1fJk

Bloomberg news on the web is a relatively objective unbiased news source, at least by MSM standards. Will we see anything about this on CBS news? The chances of that are slim and none, and Slim just left town.

Maybe the protesters were inspired by American Tea Parties?

Or maybe Honduras

Time for Emperor obie to denounce these “right-wing terrorists.”

Notice, most of them are wearing nice clothes and maybe some Brooks Brothers suits. Obviously they are not grass roots people. Astroturf.

This has got to be problematic for the leftists in our white house. Just yesterday they cut off aid to Honduras until Chavez’s friend is reinstated as president. The big Zero is on the wrong side of almost every issue of importance.
