It sounds to me as if they're just pissed that he spilled the beans

Pat Robertson calls for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and all the State Department has to say is that the comment is "inappropriate."

Let's see . . . Chavez is a two-time democratically elected pseudo-socialist who constantly criticizes U.S. policies toward Iraq, terrorism and developing countries. We applauded - and likely funded - the failed 2002 coup attempt against Chavez and would like nothing better than to Monroe Doctrine him out of the hemisphere. And it's not like we don't have a bit of experience when it comes to terminating Latin American heads-of-state with extreme prejudice. (See Allende, Salvador; Chile, U.S. intervention in)
