Anybody remember the start up of the Iranian election aftermath, and how promptly Obama lent his support of the freedom demonstrators? Yes that 3 AM call, it’s still raging, with people getting brutalized every day by the totalitarian Iranian regime.
What’s really going on in Honduras — Piece of Work in Progress, translates the AP news for us:
You won’t really grasp it from the AP article, but the Honduran coup is about President Zelaya’s extra-constitutional attempt to extend his term. He would be out of office in January, but he wanted a referendum to permit him to run again. The Supreme Court stated that would be unconstitutional. The army general who was to have distributed the ballots refused, and was sacked. The military then snatched him from his villa and shipped him off to Hugo.
Crikey, another 3 AM call is on the Obama hot line — Then to see how Obama reacts to a two bit tinpot dictator wannabe who was trying to pull a Hugo Chavez style ‘dictator for life’ takeover of Honduras. Except for the fact that Obama obviously has the same designs for America — One ruled by Obama for life. America, you are Venezuela-2, better wake up soon.
It’s Honduras, you know South America land of the two bit tinpot dictators.
The Honduran military on Sunday ousted leftist President Manuel Zelaya and exiled him to Costa Rica – an action rejected by much of the world, including the United States and its sometimes foe, Venezuela.
The apparent catalyst for the coup came last week when Mr. Zelaya decided to go ahead with a nationwide referendum on whether he could purse a second term in office. Honduran electoral law limits leaders to one four-year term.
Though the referendum vote was neither sanctioned by Honduran congressional leaders nor deemed legal by the country’s Supreme Court, Mr. Zelaya scheduled the vote for Sunday. He further antagonized the country’s elite by trying to fire the head of the Honduran military, which promptly retaliated against him.
Have you hugged a Latin American tyrant today? And then there is this unusual confluence of support for the deposed tinpot dictator wannabe:
In an unusual concurrence of views, the Obama administration and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said they still recognized Mr. Zelaya as Honduras’ president. The State Department called the events an “attempted coup” and urged Mr. Zelaya’s “return and restoration of democratic order.”
Here is a look into the future for America, as seen by Obama.
In his own image.
Have you ever wondered why the Hollywood bootlicks always went to Venezuela to lick Chavez’s boots?
