Obama Administration Supports Dictator in Honduran Power Grab

Via the Washington Post, the Obama administration has come down on the wrong side of the troubles in Honduras recently.

"President Obama said yesterday that the military ouster of Honduran President Manuel Zelaya was illegal and could set a "terrible precedent.."

The facts do not support Mr. Obama's statement.

As seen in the Miami Herald, the Army arrested President Manuel Zelaya, as he was making an unconstitutional power grab.

"His actions have been repudiated by the country's supreme court, its congress, its attorney-general, its chief human-rights advocate, all its major churches, its main business association, his own political party (which recently began debating an inquiry into Zelaya's sanity) and most Hondurans..."

The Army acted on the Supreme Court's orders - and there aren't many in Honduras who would disagree with what they did, morally OR legally.

Obama has joined with Castro and Chavez in condemning the act of the Honduran people - the act of defending their constitution. Although what Obama has said doesn't surprise me, I knew he was a raving leftist, but it does really piss me off.

As Mike points out - Obama didn't have much to say in support of the Iranian people courageously standing up to a despotic and brutal government.

He was pretty quick to condemn Hondurans for exercising their duty to uphold their constitution.

Charles Krauthammer weighs in saying that Zelaya is acting extra constitutionally to dismantle a democracy and establish a dictatorship.



I am sick to death of being embarrassed by my president - he's a disgrace.

I believe that Obama has similar ideas in mind for us. Why else would he support such actions from Honduran President?

Bambi's idea of protecting American citizens is to channel Jimmy Carter at every turn--somewhere the old peanut farmer is smiling.

The old peanut farmer is likely to be cozying up to some dictator in a foreign land, declaring his hatred for the US.

Obama is a disgrace. Weak. Ineffectual.

When overseas people talk about "The Ugly American" this is really what they mean, not Bush or Reagan but the spineless feet-of-clay examples of Carter, Clinton, and now Obama. It's the too-easy abandonment of the basic American Principles that we stand for that galls the regular-guy Foreigner. Screw the foreign elites anyhow, they're just Democrat-Socialists with funny accents.
Whatever happened to the balls that it took to run the Berlin Airlift? Instead we get defeatism - the Fall of Saigon, over and over again.

God, DC. I agree.

The limp wristed Euro-weenies - I consider it a complement if they don't like me.

I guess they love Obamses...
