    Hugo Chavez, socialist Dictator for Life.

    From the Daily Caller. http://dailycaller.com/2012/10/07/r...-lost-venezuelan-election/&r=keyword&word=por

    Update 10:50 p.m.: According to the Associated Press, Venezuela’s electoral council has declared that Hugo Chavez beat Henriques Capriles in Sunday’s presidential election with about 54 percent of the vote, despite exit polls showing otherwise.

    Venezuela Twitter users have claimed Chavez’s victory was wrought with election with about 54 percent of the vote, despite exit polls showing otherwise.

    Venezuela Twitter users have claimed Chavez’s victory was wrought with election fraud, and that the socialist incumbent president sent tanks into the streets of his country as those exit poll reports showed him losing. A picture of the tanks surfaced on Twitter Sunday evening.

    The British Guardian newspaper reported that Chavez also sent troops armed with AK-47s into Venezuela’s streets to fight against any protests in case unrest came as a result of the news.

    A Spanish news outlet reported earlier on Sunday that exit polls showed Capriles defeated the socialist president by a narrow margin.

    Just another day in a Banana Republic. In any case, Hollywood dickweed Sean Penn will probably be there for the ‘inauguration’.

    Where was the Peanut Farmer for this? Isn't that one of his roles in life- butting in on other nations' elections to tell us how “fair” they are?

    Kinda reminds me of that Bannana republica called Florida.

    Do they go by total popular vote unlike we do with the electorial college where the winner does not necessarially have the most popular votes?

    :D:D:D

    Every leader who does not roll over for US is a "dictator" and a "despot"!

    Why do you think the elections were "rigged"? Because the people see what happens to nations where US orientated "opposition" gets the upper hand, and vote for a person who can stand up to US?

    But that's simply explained: people don't want US dictatorship in their country.

    That's what happened in Russia: 67% voted for Putin not because he is perfect, but because people had enough of pro-US/West liberal compradors.
