    Default Hugo Chavez facing "his most difficult hours" and "clinging to life"

    BBC News - Venezuela's Chavez in 'most difficult hours' - Maduro

    Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez is undergoing his "most difficult hours", his deputy has said.

    On Monday, officials said the 58-year-old Venezuelan leader had a new, severe respiratory infection.

    Dozens of people gathered to pray for his health at the hospital where Mr Chavez is being treated.
    Vice President Maduro is certainly taking the front foot on this. He's on television, in the media giving detailed interviews and acting as the face of the government. Things have taken a turn for the worse for Chavez, and it appears at this point unlikely he'll make a full recovery. From rumours in December that he'd actually died, he hasn't been seen since returning to Venezuela.

    The question on my mind is this: It's unlikely that Chavez can take office at this point one way or the other.What happens next? Surely Maduro can't take over as Chavez himself was never sworn in due to his illness. So what's next? Court battles? Elections? Just ignore the process and stay in power?

    Sure it only seems like yesterday he was 38 and trying to launch a coup to depose the peaceful and democratically elected government of the day.

    A Government that was presiding over one of the most socially and economically unequal societies in Latin America, and that's saying something.

    But he fvcked it up.....made a bad situation worse.

    So much for his Bolivar delusion.

    Euronews says the Venezuelan VP has expelled the US Ambassador, claiming Chavez cancer is part of an "attack" by his enemies. Yes the cancer.

    Ever hear of Viktor Yushchenko? (That doesn't mean that I think the claim is true)
    The world is a very puzzling place. If you're not willing to be puzzled, you just become a replica of someone else's mind.

    What a disgusting post. Side effects of some cancer treatment include swelling.
