Obama: US not interfering in Venezuelan election

There are 2 comments on the Seattle Times story from May 4, 2013, titled Obama: US not interfering in Venezuelan election. In it, Seattle Times reports that:

President Barack Obama says the idea that an American filmmaker detained by Venezuela's government is a spy is, in his words, "ridiculous." Thirty-five-year-old Timothy Tracy, of West Hollywood, California, was formally charged last week with crimes including conspiracy, association for criminal purposes and use of a false document.

They are just "ITCHING" for the U.S. to say anything about their "ridiculous" Presidential Elections, so since the U.S. has refused to get involved, or comment on their fraudulent Presidential Elections, they take a shot at the first U.S. Citizen that they could get their hand on just to provoke a reaction from the U.S.

What a bunch of inept clowns, what "ridiculous" means to attract attention! We are indeed very blessed to live in the free world part....here in the U.S.A.,... Now, we need only to care for that privilege, so we don't find ourselves in the same "ridiculous and fraudulent" state of affairs that Venezuela finds itself in today. Maduro and all of his clowns are an embarrassment to the world!

How does a country fall from being so highly regarded to the lowest level of civility? It let's itself be manipulated by their leaders and they just become the "do-nothings" of their society...they don't take action on invasion of their Constitutional Rights and Freedoms; they turn a blind eye to corruption and abuse of power; their greed is greater than their love of country, and their humanitarian concerns are sterile. Sounds familiar? What now?

What you've just said is an exact mirror of America in general.

But really Venezuela is important asset to the US. They have a lot of oil, the US has intervened before and they will likely again.

Hugo Chavez wasn't perfect, but one thing he did do that no other Venezuelan leader has is improve the countries quality of living and cared for the poor. If you look at Venezuela's history, they have been an big oil country for decades and not a dime ever hit the poor. Hugo Chavez becomes president, the poor eats, they can go to school, college, Hugo Chavez actually printed their constitution on several government products. So this whole notion the people had no freedoms is not true.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying he was a great leader, but he actually did something for the people. You can't say the same for previous leaders.

So now Venezuela in the hands of 2 types of people, one side are people who are rich and want the old Venezuela back where the few made all the money and the poor had nothing and the second are people who want to improve on what Hugo Chavez had done. One side is backed by US and Europe the other is backed by the people of Venezuela. Seeing how Hugo Chavez won the last election in a landslide I'm confident the people will choose someone who will benefit them and not the rich.
