CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- President Hugo Chavez bid an emotional farewell laced with references to Jesus Christ and independence hero Simon Bolivar as he departed Venezuela on Friday for Cuba for urgent surgery to remove a tumor he says is probably malignant.
Clasping the hand of his youngest daughter, Chavez addressed allies of his socialist political movement and troops standing at attention at the Miraflores presidential palace.

May he never return.
I think he’s smelling sulpher.
Tumor flies to Cuba for urgent Chavez removal.
One can only hope he stares into the abyss and
finding no trace of socialism there, realizes
how empty he is.
Luv it. LOL!
Prayers for the tumor.
I’m sure that every citizen of his socialist utopia that needs surgery gets flown to another country to get it, everyone being equal and all..
I hope he has an epiphany.
Chavez himself can be considered a malignant tumor in need of removal from this planet.
His soul is in his own hands. A slow death gives time for reflection his victims were not afforded.
You mean they’re finally going to remove what passes for Chavez’ brain?
Is Spicolli inconsolable?
I’m sorry, but if he gets it removed there will be nothing left...oh well!
I will still have the last laugh as long as you Americans have the Idiot in the White House ... and Dirty Harry and Nasty in Congress ... and open borders ... and government unions ... and libtards on the Supreme Court ... and Chicago Rat Machines in most large cities ... and public education without competition ... and a fifth column press ... and Hollyweird ... and out of control spending ...
Tumor removal??? Off with his head!
Apaprently the state media in Venezimbabwe tried to say this was all unplanned. The ‘crowds’ were bussed in, aerial shots showed the buses, and they all just happened to bring red shirts with them?
I really wonder how long Chavez has to live, anyway. The most recent pictures I’ve seen of him show a man in really poor health.
His time is running out quickly you can tell by looking at him.The steroids they have him on have him blown up and his complexion looks yellow.His days are numbered.
So why doesn’t the freedom fighters shoot his plane out of the sky? Sounds reasonable to me.
He’s probably smelling it now, but back at the UN that wasn’t sulfur. Ol’ George had two quarts of West Texas chili flown in special from Midland when he learned Hugo would be next up at the podium. Just his way of saying “Howdy”.
Sniff! Sniff! Whats That I Smell??
Post of the day :-)
Chavez left today for Cuba to have something removed. I leave the “something” because it is the vagueness that micomandantepresidente likes best when we talk about what pain in the ass he suffers from.
First time I’ve ever heard of a ‘tumor with a tumor’.
How backward is YOUR Country if you have to leave there and go to Cuba for surgery???
Who goes to Cuba for any type of medical procedure? How terrible is the health care system in Venezuela that its own ruler has to go to Cuba for a tumor removal?
If the Tumor doesn’t kill him, the Chemo will. He has puffed up due to Kidney damage from the Chemo. Happened to my best friend with mesothelioma, Renal failure killed him before the cancer did.
Nice to see God at work in the world
Gotta wonder how many Venezuelans are praying for the removal of the tumor at the head of their governmental system.
Actually, I’d hope the Chavez could hang on for at least a year - if he does kick off anytime soon, we can be damn sure the current set of clowns in DC will screw up any opportunities presented by his demise.
They're removing his rotten brain or black heart? Could be either by the title.
I was just thinking the same thing, Are they going to pick up Hugo in a 1957 Chevy Station Wagon Ambulance and rush Him to a modern medical facility ? I wouldn’t go to Cuba to have a hang nail removed.
Yep, when you got the prednisone puffies you be on final approach. In his case to Hell.
