Venezuela's Political Disaster - November 5, 2008
Attached below please find opinion article written by Ambassador Adolfo Taylhardat from Washington, DC where he is attending an elections seminar at George Washington University. Amb. Taylhardat highlights the civility present within the United States concerning the presidential elections.
Perhaps we are all used to how the democratic process takes place every four years, and cannot possibly imagine that only a few miles south of our borders there is Hugo Chavez, a megalomaniac leader who has destroyed a country, and the soul of the people who live in fear and hopelessness in a once lovely, dynamic and progressive nation.
Elected President Barack Obama is an intelligent, educated, and brilliant man and his attention must be directed in protecting the abused nation of Venezuela. Please know that pathetic Chavez is trying to make contact with new elected officials. I worry about the Democratic officials who have traveled to Venezuela to meet with the infamous dictator, and must remind every one, and all the re-elected officials that Venezuelans need help to restore democracy in Venezuela and end corruption.
