Why Are They Surprised??

"However, Chávez, an avowed enemy of the Bush administration and a strong ally of Cuba's Fidel Castro, has startled Venezuelans in recent days with his plan to nationalize the power and telecommunications companies, and his earlier announcement that he would shut down the RCTV television station for violating a strict media law."

You can read the whole article here.

I ask how can anyone inside or outside of Venezuela be surprised or startled as reported in the above article by this man's declarations? He didn't make a hard turn to the left, he's been turning that corner since 1998. After all he did last year, after all the communist and socialist countries he visited last year. After all the speeches he gave last year blasting capitalism, how can anyone with any amount of brain power actually be surprised with his declarations of the past two days? Worst of all, is the media, these idiots all around the world are reporting these events as if it were an earthquake that struck by complete surprise, were these people in a coma for the past 8 years?

Here's some great commentary and links regarding the situation in Venezuela.
