Without a modicum of diplomacy in his veins, Chavez lastFebruary 16, at a medical graduation ceremony in the Stateof Vargas, said of Capriles, "It doesn't matter how manytimes you change your costume, low life; your pig's tailstill shows behind you as well as your pig's ears. Yousnore like a pig. Well, what am I saying? You are a pig.Don't try and hide it."
Capriles, obviously not intimidated by Chavez's vociferousrecriminations, said "the only debate that interests Chavezis an exchange of insults. Do you hear the governmentcandidate making proposals? No, he wants to save theplanet Earth, he wants to save humanity ... and who'sgoing to solve our electricity problem?" Caprileschallenged Chavez to discuss the housing situation and theplight of those left homeless by natural disasters, and whoare still living in shelters today.
Chavez has probably inflicted more lasting structuraldamage on Venezuela's political institutions, economy,and people than any other President in Venezuela's history.
Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) has essentially beendestroyed by the Chavez leftist regime. This to a companythat generated over 90% of the country's foreign exchangeearnings, with around 100,000 employees. As well,Chavez's incompetence has allegedly led to "over $50 billion of financial debt to this institution."
Opponents indicate years of frustration in understandingand getting the facts on the flow of Venezuela's oil wealth.Many believe that Venezuela's number eight standing inoil-producing in the world should be "benefiting(Venezuela) handsomely from high oil prices."
Venezuela's massive military expansion, with purchases of armaments including aircraft, tanks and an AK-47 armsfactory, are examples of the opposition's rationale.Chavez's emerging nuclear aspirations are continuingvoter's doubts in Venezuela's future under Hugo Chavez.
And Chavez's personal wealth has grown considerably.
