Report: Venezuela's Chavez 'Only Has Two Years to Live'
Fox News ^ | October 17, 2011

Posted on 10/17/2011 6:26:27 AM PDT by Zakeet

Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez likely has less than two years to live, his former doctor said, as the ailing firebrand traveled to Cuba for a checkup following cancer treatment.

Chavez, 57, has been through four rounds of chemotherapy in Cuba since revealing he had a cancerous tumor removed in June. But Venezuela has provided few details about the exact nature of the cancer, aside from that it was in the pelvic area.

Salvador Navarrete, his former personal surgeon, told Mexican newspaper Milenio Semanal on Sunday that the leader's condition likely was worse than publicly admitted.

The doctor described the prognosis as "not good." He added, "When I say this, I mean that he has no more than two years to live."

Two years? I guess health care in Cuba isn’t as good as US liberals say it is.

Two days is longer than this oxygen thief should be breathing. He could drop dead now and quit emitting all that global warming C02; save the oxygen for someone more deserving.

With no facts to back up their assertion, WikiLeaks Argentina keeps posting “Chavez Died”. NDY...Not Dead Yet...but many of us will enjoy reading his obituary.

Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.

When Chavez dies, will the L.A. Dodgers announce that Chavez Ravine is henceforth to be seen as honoring Hugo Chavez? (Washington State did that sort of thing, renaming King County after Martin Luther King, Jr., instead of Vice President William Rufus King.)

My Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Let us take a Christian POV here, please and offer prayer.

"Brief, apparently is the time allotted to your servant (?) Hugo amongst us,
but sufficient unto Thee, O Lord. And
as Thou knowest, more than sufficient to us.
If in Thy Holy Wisdom, Thou couldst see Thy way clear,
toward making that time any briefer, O Lord,
kindly do so at this time.
If the Marxist SOB can be saved, let us save him,
so that we may debrief him in Heaven.
In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Amen."

The damage wrought by this Marxist Anus and his o-so-similar pal now resident in public housing in DC, to his country, our country, and to the lands of their neighbors has been immense.

No, nothing on Drudge. But he compensates by linking to a story about a Scrabble player who demanded his opponent undergo a strip search because of a missing tile.

Priorities, you know.

It will be a lot less than that, one year tops. It is standard communist tactic to prepare the next "Great Leader of the People" regrime.

My money is on ten months....

Or Less.

Thanks Zakeet.
Chavez, 57, has been through four rounds of chemotherapy in Cuba...
What should have happened was four rounds right through his cranium.
