    14 years of Chavez achievement?!?!

    Just a cotton pickin' moment. I thought Capriles claimed that Chavez had already destroyed Venezuela.

    I think he realizes its better to go against Maduro than the legacy of Chavez. The poor have benefitted from the Chavez hand outs and so wont hear a bad word about him whereas Maduro is relatively new to the scene and so is far easier to discredit. Maduro looks weak to Capriles and so Capriles is going for him instead.

    Oh, I agree .. I just think it looks hilarious when you consider his past pronouncements on El Chav.

    Capriles is all over the place, declaring he will stop following Chavez' politics and at the same time acknowledging Chavez' achievements. Well, I understand him, not even the Venezuelan opposition are as blatent in their lies as these sheep.

    Nice video and that was 5 years ago.

    I have to say that what you have shown me with this and Sao Paulo should be pushed more by your government to portray the country in a better light than Rio, which to me is a city of massive contrasts from good to bad, mainly bad.

    Chavismo is dead! (Always was!) Watch Venezuela degenerate even further over the next 24 months.
