Quotes

...are focused on the president and the president's party; the worse he is doing, the better for the party out of the White House," Ornstein wrote. "So for Republicans, scandal mongering, blasting presidential fecklessness, and minimizing signing ceremonies where the president can declare victory, are far more potent than accomplishing legislative goals or moving to solve big problems. Meantime, for Senate Democrats, with a lot of incumbents up in tight races, votes on controversial issues are radioactive."
Neither does Javier Corrales, another recognized authority on Venezuela who teaches at Amherst College. "I don't think that sanctions are the way to go. They will be counterproductive. The government of Venezuela is always facing the risk of internal disarray, and sanctions will only help unify it and rally the dissenters, which is the worse possible thing that could be done to help the opposition. Having said that, if sanctions are going to happen, I think the approach of targeting individuals -- especially those with demonstrable ties to illicit actions -- is a better approach than to try to sanction the government entirely."
...Of this latest effort, Sen. Rubio noted to the Wall Street Journal that  "the U S should always be onon the side of human rights around the world" and that he had prepared a list of more than twenty officials in the Venezuelan government to be sanctioned...
