logic fail. he could very well have rigged elections when he wanted to. he may "lose" this one because he doesn't care to win it.
Reading comprehension fail. If the election is rigged, then it's not free and fair. I thought that was a pretty elemental fact that didn't need to be stated, but evidently I was wrong.
EDIT: Previous Venezuelan elections have had international monitors and even his political rivals have conceded that they were free and fair, they just hate his politics.
