The prognosis for President Hugo Chavez is very bad.
Chavez himself confirmed that it’s curtains for sure within a year or less when he returned from Havana on 5 April, deplaning in his natal state of Barinas.
Chavez exited the presidential aircraft and immediately made these nationally televised remarks:
“Aferrado a la vida estoy y le pido a Dios, a Cristo, mi Señor, que nos siga dando vida y a mí de manera particular así para seguir dándole esta vida a quien hay que darla, a la patria…Doy Gracias a Dios, a Cristo redentor, hoy Jueves Santo, día de su sacrificio… En manos de Cristo me he encomendado. Con él y en él aquí estoy y aquí ando”, declaro el presidente Chavez, quien agrego ademas quee se siente “hoy más cristiano que nunca”.
“I am hanging on to life and I ask God, Christ, my Lord, to continue giving us life and particularly to me so that (I) can continue giving (my) life to whom it must be given, to the nation….I give thanks to God, to Christ Redeemer, today Holy Thursday, day of His sacrifice…In the hands of Christ I have commened myself, With Him and in Him here I am and continue going,” President Chavez said, declaring himself “…more Christian than ever today.”
Chavez then attended a special Holy Week Mass celebrated for the president, expressly. Again, Chavez’s remarks confirmed that he’s only a dozen or so coffin nails removed from being a revolutionary tourism attraction in a mausoleum.
“Give me life…even a painful life, I don’t care…just let me live…there’s so much still to be done.”
Watching the president’s sudden pleas for the miraculous mercies of a God he ignored until the Reaper came knocking – as so many of us undoubtedly do – I suddenly thought of Little Caesar’s groveling exit from this life in a dark, rain-drenched alley…..
Mother of Mercy. Is this the end of Rico?
