CARACAS, Venezuela — President Hugo Chavez said Saturday he may expel a top U.S. Embassy official for allegedly plotting against his government from Puerto Rico.

Venezuela's socialist leader said he has information that leaders of the political opposition were meeting with U.S. advisers in Puerto Rico to discuss how to prevent a referendum on term limits from passing.

Embassy spokeswoman Robin Holzhauer said the mission's Charge d'Affaires in Caracas, John Caulfield, recently visited Puerto Rico for a wedding

"He wasn't there for any sort of clandestine meeting," she said. "The trip had no relation to anyone or anything in Venezuela."

The clown is at it again! Has there ever been a bigger narcissist in politics?
(Well, that remains to be seen)

The poor people of Venezuela, they have to put up with this paranoid, maniacal
leader. Apparently, it doesn't matter, what your business is in his country, he is convinced the world is out to take control of Venezuela and its people.

What I don't understand, is how come the U.S. has not eliminated this guy?
Have we tried and failed? What is stopping us from a clandestine plot to oust
him? He is such an evil man. I'm not talking about war here! I'm just saying I don't understand. What would it take to rid the world of this dictator?

Please give me some perspective on this matter.
