Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez has died ... this according to Venezuelan Vice President Nicolas Maduro. 

Maduro -- who was fighting back tears during the announcement -- said Chavez died today at 4:25 PM.

Chavez had been in Cuba for months, where he was receiving treatment for a mystery illness that turned out to be cancer.

Chavez hated America ... and blamed all of the world's problems on the United States.

To paraphrase Ben Affleck ... Hugo f**k yourself. 

He was 58.

May he rest in peace. Venezualans better play it smart. Dont allow these hate spewing Amerikkkans to touch your country and resources. He was a strong leader.

Nice. Want to know why there are countries with leaders like Chavez and Castro? Because of corporate freedom fighters like the USA. And you guys wonder why so many people in other countries hate you. geesh. There isn't a bomb drop or invasion your armed forces can pass up.

Not a word from Obama when Chris Kyle was killed, but guaranteed Obama puts out something over this a$$hole dying. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if he went to the funeral.

Hopeful the the country will be able to be more open to taking care of all of it's citizens. Not just the ones that agree with his party. Hopeful for better U.S. ties with a country that could actually be a positive benefit to us and our allies. Sorry that his family is having to deal with the loss. But, dying is a guarantee in life. Do I like the fact he and other countries hate us, NO! But do not wish this pain on his family. He was someone's son, father, uncle, etc.. Sometimes you have to agree to disagree.

Hugo certainly worked hard at pandering to the stupid and was very successful in winning them over to their own peril.

Who else do we know who operates in this fashion?
