Hugo Chavez’s body will be preserved and permanently displayed in a glass cabinet so that “people will always have him,” claims the vice president of Venezuela. This is a man who thought a lot about himself according to, “Fox and Friends Weekend” on Saturday, March 9, 2013.
Chavez being incased in glass instead of a burial or cremation, was his wish, so this might be evidence as to how much stock he did put in himself. Chavez' final resting place will be behind glass and on display at a military museum.
The funeral for Chavez had some U.S. notable names in attendance, like Sean Penn and Jessee Jackson. Even though Chavez was often at odds with the U.S., Washington still sent representatives to his funeral services. According to Syracuse.com on Friday, Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-NY, and former Rep. William Delahunt, D-Mass, attended the service.
“Fox and Friends Weekend” talked about how much Chavez thought of himself, as he seemed to do things that favored his personal agenda more so than for the good of the country. They used his recent re-election as an example of this.
Chavez was very sick, but instead of standing aside and giving someone else the chance to run for the office of the president, he kept his name in the election. It would have made more sense for Chavez to drop out of the campaign, allowing another candidate to run, who would be around long enough to actually do the job of the president.
“Fox and Friends Weekend” also talked about Chavez’s weekly TV show, which consisted of the late president talking about trivial things like "fish." It was as if he just liked to "hear himself talk" commented the Fox morning show anchors. It was more like a talk show, than anything that resembled a president addressing his country.
