Venezuelan Suppression

Prairie Pundit (h/t Larwyn) notes that Venezuela's quasi-dictator, Hugo Chavez, has threatened to imprison his chief political rival, Manuel Rosales. Prairie Pundit quotes Reuters quoting Chavez:

"'I am determined to put Manuel Rosales behind bars. A swine like that has to be in prison.'"

Barack Obama has said that he wishes to unconditionally meet with strongman Chavez. Larry Johnson of NoquarterUSA notes that Bill Ayers is a frequent visitor to Venezuela as is Obama fundraiser Jodie Evans.

I wonder if Senator Obama looks at Hugo Chavez as a personal role model.
