Response to Broderick (Reply #67)

70. I think he also draws fire on purpose

because he can, because of Venezuela's strong position. Iow, he says things out loud that leaders in more weakly positioned countries can't say. That's his role in the region and one reason that he gets so much support from other left leaning presidents.

But I totally understand why he seems obnoxious to some Americans who are used to a more deferential attitude. That's him but it's also the role he's played on the continent.
