Venezuela's lame-duck National Assembly has granted President Hugo Chavez the power to pass laws by decree for the next 18 months, the website of state-run Venezuelan Television reported Friday.So what else Caudillo is lacking to be omnipotent in Venezuela?
But it appears that there still is something. Proof:
Speaking live on Venezuelan Television, he said he had become aware of plans to assassinate him and was "taking my own measures" to protect himself. But, he added, "I'm not going to hide in a cave."Comical Hugo usually goes into assassination rave when there is something new and especially outrageous on his diseased mind. Watch out.
