VHeadline commentarist, the Rev. Obed Juan Vizcaino Najera writes: Manuel Rosales’ escape has revealed a lot of things that had been lurking in his shadow for years … ten years exactly. We have previously denounced this as a weakness in our Biolivarian Revolution … an eternal political naivete which is simply about impunity and complicity.
Our revolution continues to carry some weaknesses that have not been overcome and some people related to the Chavez government may, strangely, not want to these things to be overcome…
The infectious naivete continues to affect many officials within the National Government … many middle- and high-ranking officials within the public administration effectively have strings with counter-revolutionary sectors that come from a traditional Venezuelan Left as well as from Accion Democratica (AD) and the Christian Socialists (COPEI) … and it is those sectors that continue to get the majority of the best contracts signed with public institutions.
