    Sanctions?

      On what? Maduro has done a fine job of placing sanctions on his own country (grin)….
      Seriously though, what do you propose doing, particularly with the current administration in office?

    Wait, Obama’s State Department criticized Maduro on this? Why? As President, is Maduro not entitled to issue executive orders on whatever he likes? That’s what Obama does in the USA, so why should Venezuela be held to a different standard?

    …what Obama would regard as the “natural” consequences of Venezuelan poor policies to take their course”

    I think it’s far more likely Obama thinks Venezualan socialist policies were simply ill-managed, not ideologically flawed.
