I entertained the thought that maybe Mr Chavez was not really a socialist but pretended to be one so as to come to power.
That's what socialists always say when their socialist utopias collapse. 'But he wasn't a real socialist! If he'd been a real socialist, everything would be wonderful!'

No matter how often socialism proves a disaster in the real world--as it always must, until they can create the New Socialist Man, who's happy to work hard so the products of his labours can be given to those who don't---they'll keep calling for more.
