Comments on: Honduran coup tests Obama in Latin America http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/07/07/honduran-coup-tests-obama-in-latin-america/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: D'Elite http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/07/07/honduran-coup-tests-obama-in-latin-america/comment-page-1/#comment-397990 Sun, 13 Sep 2009 04:56:37 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=18232#comment-397990 The removal of Zelaya is a great example of Democracy making a correction to prevent a dictatorship like the one that currently exists in Venezuela from taking place. The institutions of government represented by their own congress, the supreme court and their own people supported his ouster and in the process preserved Democracy for the next generation.

ARE acting consistently with their views. And the views of the majority of the media and the majority of congress. But NOT the views of the majority of the country. The corrupt media, after all, seated most of those radicals.

The last thing this country needs is another Chavez. The guy was trying to subvert his countries constitution in order to become presidente for life. The only thing that I can imagine is that Obama was thinking to try the same thing at the end of his second term.

The article quotes the usual assortment of lefties and authoritarians and is clearly a puff piece for Zelaya. The media will continue calling the ouster of Zelaya a military coup for years despite the overwhelming evidence that the drivers of his removal from office were the countries civilian elected officials. The media are nothing if not stubbornly counter-factual when they want to be.That being said, I am embarrassed by the behavior of Obama and Hillary. At least George Bush acted consistently with his views. The current heroes of the media are acting like a couple of egoistic nihilists. Wanting to have better relations with Latin America doesn’t trump adherence to the laws and norms of civilization. You may want to have better relations with your neighbor,but you neighbor is caught raping a seven year old girl it is expected that you would condemn the behavior no matter who else spoke out for it. Obama has the best military in the world to defend him and he is acting like a timid, cornered, victim. I fear that the US is in for a period of decline resulting from self inflicted wounds applied by unprincipled, geopolitically naive, and managerially ignorant politician leaders.

On the other side of things Iranians are challenging what is obviously some degree of election fraud yet Obama will barely give token support to them. The free world may be slipping away from us. Democrats have introduced a bill in which Americans can be labeled terrorists if they are anti-abortion or percieved as a “right wing extremist”. Internment camps are in the planning stages now. Yes many of you will say “that is not possible”. They said the same thing in Nazi Germany. America appears to many Americans to be on the edge of a socialist abbys. God help us if we are right.
