Opposition adopts kind recall (Venezuela, Hugo Chavez)
Opposition adopts kind recall

Sunday, July 18,2004


(snip)....There's a list of Do's and Dont's when criticizing the president, Fernandez said - partly because many Venezuelans grew tired of vituperative rhetoric during a December 2002-February 2003 general strike that failed to oust Chavez.

Calling Chavez a "dictator" is a no-no because he has embraced the recall.

Accusing the former paratrooper of graft is frowned upon because past governments, led by current opposition leaders, were largely corrupt.

Criticizing Chavez's human rights record should be avoided because the opposition is trying to reach Venezuela's majority poor, whose rights were often ignored in the past.

1. It's a Little Late for the Opposition To Adopt These Tactics
although it is the right way for them to conduct the campaign. Like Bush, the opposition has doomed itself by its rhetoric and actions -- the failed coup and oil lockout. Few of the poor are going to buy that Fernandez wants to improve the country for the common working person.

Despite the fact that his revolutionary rhetoric makes eyes roll, Chavez should win the recall.
