  •  I'm not all warm and fuzzy. I just doubt our (6+ / 0-)

    motives or effectiveness in THIS case for the reasons stated.

    I think all elections should be fair and free. I don't necessarily think the United States government is the best determiner of what elections are, especially in a case like this where there are obvious ulterior motives available.

      however, just because the US says there's a problem is not evidence that there isn't one.

      •  Agree entirely! It looks fishy to me too. (0+ / 0-)

        But I think us calling it fishy only cements the election, not encourages more fairness, since part of the winning party's platform is basically "Don't let America win - Keep the Chavez movement alive!"
