It did not work

Chávez showed what he could do best again: he insulted people, he particularly attacked verbally the US government.*

If he intended to create more tension in the market and make oil prices go up, it did not work.
Check the oil prices.

Did his popularity rise among the die-hard Chavistas? No, even if the hard-core ones got new emotional fuel. Did the ones who are just hungry believe more in him? I doubt it. Did Chávez manage to distract the ninis a little bit about Venezuela's failing infrastructure, dramatic criminality levels or sheer corruption? Hardly.

* There are more videos where you can hear all the insults and repetitions, but I was feeling lazy. You can find them fairly easily or look at the posts Miguel wrote.
