Caracas, May 30 (Prensa Latina) Venezuela´s Communication and Information Minister Andres Izarra assured Monday normality is reigning in the country and President Hugo is perfectly well and working on his agenda.
In telephone statements for Globovision, Izarra denied rumors questioning Chavez´ health after not attending a march in Caracas Saturday, and suspending his habitual Sunday program Alo Presidente.
Izarra said that once informed of the situation, the president asked him to contact those in Miraflores and say he was fine.
Chavez is "simply spending time with his family, as is the right of any human being. Nothing out of the ordinary is happening," the minister stated, noting those rumors probably came from sectors interested in destabilizing the population.
How very curious.
Let me come right out and say it: I hope he is in heaven now. Or where ever!
Ah.. Baghdad Bob... how I miss him.
Chavez sick or dead?
Ill hope for the latter.
Shades of Arafart from last November.
I wonder whatever happened to him?
Believe it or not, yesterday they said he was attending a volleyball tournament!
Now he's "spending time with his family." Hopefully, with the ones in the family crypt.
Chavez sleeps with the fishes? Too bad he didn't take Mugabe [spit] with him.
Actually, I have it from a very good source that he died from stupidity.
Too good to be true?
Definitely an assignment for the D.C. Park Police.
LOL like what's in the parenthesis!
Everything is fine. El Presidente is in the palace right now working on his agenda. There is no hearse behind me.
"All is well! ALLLLL ISSSS WELLLLLLLLLL!!!!!"
This may just be something out of Basic Dictatorship 101. They often stage mysterious disappearances for a few days or a week to encourage the discontented to foolishly act out. Once they show their hand, it is easy for the dictator to pop back in and eliminate them. It is popular way to manage dissenting opinion when you are a murderous scoundrel.
Free Venezuela bump.
Good point. He's done this before, IIRC - there is some suspicion that the 2002 attempt to overturn him had basically been orchestrated by him to root out his enemies.
He's probably off visiting some fellow dictator somewhere - Cuba, NK, Iran, take your pick.
"I hope he is in heaven now.'
He is a communist, usually they go to the other stop on the train.
" He's probably off visiting some fellow dictator somewhere - Cuba, NK, Iran, take your pick."
The Hillary in 2008 headquarters.
Castro used his secret police to take over. Chavez will be put on trial for being a yankee pawn. It could happen!
Definitely a possibility. Probably accompanied by Jimmeh.
Unfortunately, however, HAL just posted this:
It appears that our boy has turned up again, alive and well on VZ television.
I personally dont believe that. I saw the duplicate and read his note of resignation. It was printed in a style of a second grader. He couldnt keep his left and right margins straight, and the lines were crooked. At the last moment, he decided it needed his presidential shield, or what ever it was suppose to be, but there was no room at the top for the entire depiction of the shield, so the top of the shield went off the page. Im telling you. This man is uneducated and dumber than dirt.
That is, he tried to "draw" in the shield at the top of the page. It was hilarious.
Back in the days of the Soviet Union, when a member of the polit bureau disappeared from sight, TASS would announce that he has a "cold". Then he has "pneumonia". Then the member will be buried last month.
Maybe Hugo's scientists have developed an infinite improbability drive?
That bug might be still going around - commiepneumania.
Can you imagine the response of the MSM if Bush's spokesman came out with this type of wtatement?
Geeze, you don't think Arafat gave him the HIV worm? I bet that would make Castro nervous!
I believe that he has a job with an Arab news network. Just goes to show you.. the media and their high standards.
...but he was too dumb to know it?
He is, but he makes up for it by being crazy.
There is nothing more dangerous than a stupid person who thinks hes smart. I think weve all witness this throughout our lives.
Ignorance is salvageable. Stupidity is forever.
