Former taxman José Vielma Mora will now be known as something other than "the only chavista who is semi-competent": a traitor to the Revolution!
Here is Vielma Mora’s hilarious, totally unbelievable attempt to stake out a position as some sort of moderate chavista, a position he conveniently expressed only after he didn’t get the cambur he was gunning for. It’s quite a performance:
"Expropriations must be paid immediately … we have to strengthen private companies in Venezuela, and make them more dynamic."
Update: He hams it up some more:
"I think marxism is the worst thing that can happen to our country, this is Vielma Mora’s vision, and I am not switching to the other side."
Speaking in the third person like a true master thespian. Awesome.
