I am not the one saying it, it comes from the government, that Chavez disease has taken a turn for the worse. I am giving you the Telesur link of Villegas, the communication minister and tonight's cadena.
The question is why now, because it is quite clear that Chavez had reached the end of the rope a few weeks ago. I have the nagging feel that they are forced into it. They may be wanting to dismiss the renovated students protest gathering steam slowly but surely. Or the International pressure is becoming more serious. Or even Chavez is starting to smell funny. All is possible in this macabre farce that the regime has been playing in its sick internal grab for power.
Villegas may have tried to blame the opposition tonight for Chavez death (yeah, they are that sick) but the fact of the matter is that they threw into the ring a very sick man last year. The reelection campaign only damaged Chavez further. Besides committing a fraud against the Venezuelan people, the Cubans and those inside chavismo that had alot to account for had no qualms using Chavez until the bitter end. That Chavez acquiesced does not change the story: he was all but murdered by his inner circle.
Tonight they have taken the first steps to prepare chavistadom for the end. It looks that election date is going to be April 15 to May 5 at the latest. Since Chavez could not be sworn in then Cabello will become president for a few weeks while Maduro runs for President. Maybe. We'll see. The surprises are just about to start............
