Report: Chavez's cancer has 'entered the end stage'
HDNet ^ | May 30, 2012 | Dan Rather

Posted on 05/30/2012 11:41:28 AM PDT by C19fan

This reporter has been told that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has metastatic rhabdomyosarcoma, an aggressive cancer that has "entered the end stage". The information and the quote come from a highly respected source close to Chavez and who is in a position to know his medical condition and history. This source says the prognosis is dire and that Chavez is now not expected to live "more than a couple of months at most." Chavez is running for re-elec tion in Venezuela but several sources--including the one who revealed the exact kind of cancer-- have told me that they believe it is doubtful the dictator will live to see the results.

Report: Chavez’s cancer has ‘entered the end stage’

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This can’t be true. Chavez went to Cuba for treatment. Cuba, for Christ sakes.

Noticing that Dan Rather is the author here. I'm guessing this "highly respected source" is a fake but accurate source. Probably straight from Kinko's in Abilene.

I’m sure Obama will do all he can to help install someone far worse, as he’s done in Egypt, Libya, blah blah blah.. Where’s the commie that Obama tried to help keep his job.. I think “Zelaya” was his name.. Hiding out in Honduras or Nicaraqua?.. Maybe he needs a new job?

“Gone to his rectum???”

...that’s probably why he can’t tell us personally.

rhabdomyosarcoma I believe it has something to do with the bones in his neck, but I only play doctor on the `net.
Google it. I expect his corn-hole is the only part of him that isn’t malignant.

Another banana republic despot goes the way of all flesh. These people always remind me of the poem Ozymandias.

It should be required reading for all candidates for any sort of public office.

I say, give Hitler a break for a while and use all the *big* pineapples on Hugo.

As an aside, I didn't realize that David Axelrod had a Screen Actors Guild card!

I was going to say something nice but I can’t think of anything so I guess I’ll just say nothing. That should make my mother happy.

No, but it does not matter. He only has to 'say' he is; and should he need confirmation; he can surely find it.

If he dies before the election, will it be canceled and his crew rule ‘forever’?

Chavez should fly to Libya, being there seems to add years to the life of the “terminal”.

Chavez has been running a one-man cult-of-personality for a while. Such men are uncomfortable having potential replacements around who would be as popular as them. There is a window of opportunity for opponents when he dies.

It’s things like this that really tests a Christians faith. Regardless of awful this man is we are supposed to be sympathetic and pray for him. That’s hard to do, considering how many have suffered at his hand. But the judging is up to God only, not us. But it’s hard. I just pray to God to make me a better person and feel the right about this. I can’t have sympathy for him.
