Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has won a fourth term in office after defeating opposition leader Henrique Capriles, electoral officials say.

Mr Chavez won 54% of the vote, the country's electoral council announced.

Noisy celebrations among Chavez supporters erupted across the capital Caracas following the result.

Turnout was 80% in the hotly contested election and voting was extended beyond the official closing time at some polling stations with long queues.

I feel badly for Venezuela... but they did have a free country once, before they willingly turned it over to this bloated demon in the name of “fairness” and “change”.

I’m just glad we’re smart enough to not make the same kind of mistakes here.

The Venezuelan vote is probably just as accurate as the employment numbers from our own BLS.

*sigh*

Exit polling showed the challenger winning by 3%
Then they shut the exit polling down, put troops and soldiers into the street.
Then announced that Huge-o won by 10%.

I feel for the majority in Venezuela. May that bastard’s cancer come back and relegate him to a short chapter in the history books.

"Hugo Chavez STEALS The Election"

There, title of the article fixed... Is anyone surprised? Thought not. God knows the truth, Chavez will rot in He'll for what he has done to the country and people of Venezuela.

Pat Robertson was right concerning what should have been done with this communist monster.

Needless to say, sh*t happens.

Venezuela will continue to go downhill with Chavez alive or quite possibly dead in the coming months and years.

Another sad story like Zimbabwe.

...Somewhere, Obama is asking for those guys to count the votes here

They already do. U.S. Investigates Voting Machines’ Venezuela Ties

Old Story, but still the same story.

Those who count the vote (like Chavez and his supporters) decide everything.

I believe it was Mao who said that, wasn't it? It doesn't matter how people vote, it only matters as to who counts the votes.

SEIU and ACORN will be the ones counting the votes for sure. No wonder Obama could care less about these debates, he knows he has his buddies rigging the machines
