A power-hungry Marxist removes a barrier to becoming president-for-life, and the United States applauds:
The United States Tuesday welcomed Venezuela's "civic" referendum lifting term limits for the president and all politicians, but urged support for democracy and tolerance in the country.
"We congratulate the civic and participatory spirit of the millions of Venezuelans who exercized their democratic right to vote," State Department spokesman Noel Clay told AFP.
Venezuelans on Sunday voted 54 percent in favor of constitutional reform sought by President Hugo Chavez to run for unlimited reelection, in his bid to consolidate his brand of socialism critics compare to Cuba's communism.
Hillary's State Department thus lays the ground work for Obama's upcoming love-in with Chavez. How nice that we are globally praising monster dictators. I suppose it makes Jimmy Carter happy.
