Goodbye, Chavez

As predicted, Venezuelan President Maduro's invocation of Chavez's legacy has only diminished him in the eyes of his supporters.  See article below.  What the article fails to note is that the disturbances in Venezuela are nothing new.  Chavez had to deal with them, in spades.  I doubt Maduro has seen demonstrations the size that faced Chavez back in 2001 and 2002, sometime numbering 500,000 or more.  The problem for Maduro is he can't rally his side like Chavez could.
