It’s hard to take chavistas seriously when they try to hide the Chávez government’s obvious failure in terms of infrastructure.
We know the government has failed in terms of housing. We know it failed to provide a solution to the slow and well-announced deterioration of the Caracas-La Guaira highway. We know the remodeling of the Maiquetía airport is still more than five years behind schedule. We know they are way behind in the repairs of Central Park’s East Tower. And, thanks to the Internet, we are reminded they are way, way, way behind in finishing the Tuy Railroad. But then, what can you expect when you have such incompetent fools drilling the tunnels through which the train is supposed to pass?
The train of history seems to have passed them by.
