    What a clown! What a big show! Hugo´s popular, he´s got his tv show, he runs the country during his show! He doesn´t need a finance minister and a secretary of finances, he takes economic decisions himself, like nationalising a bank!!

    One day he tries to show how strong he is threatning a bank and the next day he back tracks and denies doing his previous actions (I guess the bank sent him an angry letter), even though it was live on TV! The day Chavez loses power the day Venezuela can start turning itself around for the better.

    What a way to run a ' democratic' dictatorship !
    Trial by Television - the new, improved Chav-Soap Opera!

    I thought the 'great soap-opera's' motto was “Never give in, never apologise”;
    what is the 'great soap-opera star' doing denying his threat and apologising?

    In Brasilian soap opera the 'great soap-opera star' gets shot dead on television!
    .... Real 'Great Soap-Opera Stars' from Venezuela should be very cautious when visiting Brasil!
