    I want a discussion on the differences between the policies of President Obama and President Hugo Chavez. I think the only difference is the fact Hugo Chavez has far more power. Obama only had two months with a free hand in the congress....Chavez 14 years.

    You can want in one hand and shit in the other.

    This is a pointless thread.

    Is this a trick question? I don't have an answer. Maybe Obama was quicker to transfer more power to himself, but he had more help. Otherwise, they are interchangeable.

    republicans getting desperate....well one difference is Chavez isn't a power hungry asshole. He actually takes the profits from the oil sales and helps the poor people..Obama just makes people poorer.

    What a crock.

    If you're going to state something as fact, you need to come prepared with FACTS.
