Bad news for the Venezuelan caudillo

Obama won again. Venezuela's caudillo had previously expressed he "preferred" Obama getting re-elected but we know he was lying. It's much harder for him to use Obama as the Bogeyman than someone like Bush or Romney.

Chávez was probably expecting US conservatives to use his statement to increase their chances: "look, Chávez is an ally of Obama!" And indeed that is what happened. But most US Americans had a thousand other priorities. What the military man from Venezuela's Western Llanos may say doesn't really matter that much to most abroad but for Cubans and Nicaraguan politicians, Russian weapon dealers, Lukashenko and a few others.

The current president of Venezuela couldn't get the much needed Bogeyman
