Cancer. No wonder he was such a grouchy bastard. I have had that a couple times. It will make you grouchy.

ROCKVILLE, MD—After noticing several news stories about the failing health of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, local man Spencer Gutowski, 45, struggled Monday to figure out if the death of Chavez was something he was supposed to be pleased about or not. “He’s bad, right? I mean, I’m pretty sure he’s one of the bad ones, but maybe he’s good?” Gutowski told reporters, adding that he believes Chavez is a Communist, which, according to Gutowski, means he should probably want Chavez dead, although he is not entirely certain. “Fidel Castro is bad and I want him to die, and I think Chavez is sort of like him, maybe. I also think I’m not supposed to like Venezuela. But then again [President] Bush didn’t like Venezuela, and I didn’t like Bush, so...” Sources later confirmed that Gutowksi asked if something at some point happened between the Venezuelan leader and actor Sean Penn in which Penn either ended up liking or not liking Chavez.

Hundreds of millions, or perhaps billions of people around the world have contracted cancer and many of them have died from it, yet the US must have played a role in him getting it? I find it hard to believe that the CIA which some of you seem to believe is omnipotent, would take two years to get rid of someone that they decided to kill.

Fwiw, Chavez dying really doesn't gain anything for us. The guy replacing him isn't likely to change his policies.

Venezuela is not a threat to us and is a huge trading partner. Chavez used anti-US rehtoric to maintain power but otherwise was mostly harmless. Not a security threat.

He just proved yet again that socialism sucks. His people should hate him for using oil profits to further socialism but that is their business.

LOL!

"At this challenging time of President Hugo Chavez's passing," Mr. Obama said in a statement released Tuesday evening by the White House, "the United States reaffirms its support for the Venezuelan people and its interest in developing a constructive relationship with the Venezuelan government.

Venezuela isn't an enemy despite the rhetoric. We should encourage relations with them.

Certainly true. Oil is the only reason that Venezuela is anything more than a footnote in South American history.
