    There are plenty of people more deserving of kudos out there.

    The only reason Chavez has defenders in this country is because he's anti-Bush.  The few things he's done that are positive don't make up for the rest.

      it's because he represents a) social justice and b) independence from destructive U.S. domination. I say "he", but of course he;s just one man. More important is the movement behind him (and in fact that's one criticism that can be levelled at the current revolution - it seems to rely too much on one man, such that if he is assassinated it might have an overly huge impact).

      •  Yeah social justice clearly (0+ / 0-)

        includes being a wanna-be dictator and supporting countries like Iran. <snark>.
