Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has overcome a respiratory infection he contracted after undergoing cancer surgery in Cuba last month, Information Minister Ernesto Villegas told reporters today.

But the president still has some breathing problems and his treatment continues, Villegas said.

    The sooner Chavez dies the better. Its pretty obvious he is in bad shape and in no condition to survive for long or be president of a nation.
