I say depressing because, well, it is: there’s something aggravating about knowing that we could stop Hugo Chavez from sending his country over the Marxist edge, but we’re not going to. I felt the same way under the last administration, too.
And before you start lecturing me about Yanqui imperialism, I’d like to remind you that it’s been a darn sight less genocidal than Communist imperialism. The only thing that Marxism has ever shown any genius in is in the turning of large numbers of live peasants into dead ones.
