A president decides he wants to be president longer than the law allows. His country does everything possible to get him to follow the law, but the president keeps abusing his power and acting like a lunatic. The country respects its constitution and decides to legally and justifiably oust him.
And Obama is siding with him?
I must be missing something, because this is insane.
Remember when all the loony lefties swore that George Bush was going to stage a coup and stay in office a third term? They went berserk predicting this. If it had actually happened, you can bet your sweet bippy that they would've used every channel possible to toss him out. And rightly so: the leader has to respect the law of the land or the citizens get rid of him.
But now a president in another country has actually just done what the nuts swore Bush was going to do, and Pres Obama is backing the would-be dictator.
Oh, and also Castro, Chavez, and Ortega side with Obama too.
Have I gone completely mad? This is sick.
Has Flip Wilson taken over TTG?
(I agree with you on the madness of it all,by the way)

Where do these fall in order of importance:
vote for bills you did not read
accuse and portray your opponents as terrorists
tell public companies how to run themselves and pick and choose which contracts they should follow and which they should disregard

This editorial was really good. And, from googling the writer, she has been covering the gov't in Honduras for awhile.

Hack your unarmed people to death with axes in the streets & we'll call it a spirited debate and not get involved.
Violate your country's constitution and ignore the democratic principles your people desire & we'll do our best to return you to power.

I wonder if Oster, Beck, Stauffenberg, etc had been successful in their planned coup against the Hitler regime--and Obama had been around at the time--his reaction would have been the same.

It seems to me to be a recurring pattern with Obama. His initial response on pretty much everything is exactly the opposite of what any decent human would instinctively say. Time and again, going back over the past year or two into the campaign he has come out with a public statement on -pick random crisis-.
Within a day or two after receiving criticism from all corners his lackeys start to 'redifine' what he orginally meant. This is usually followed within a week by a direct statement from Obama himself taking the exact opposite position he originally stated, while claiming that his new position is exactly the same as his original.
This is going to blow up in his face at some point. His instincts are just completely wrong from the get-go and needs a week or two for his spin meisters to clean up his bad judgements. One of these days he won't have a week to retool his thoughts, and when that happens I hope it isn't something bad enough to cause real trouble.

It only takes one word to trigger the prOper response from the One: "military". The M-word disturbs Him so much that He didn't use it to describe his "civilian security force".
I was initially surprised that Europpressive Hillary was on the side of the gOOd persyns since she is not a wise Latina womyn, but she and Obama probably learned everything they know about Honduras from the very same MSM that defies reality and deifies Him. Other viewpoints from nonpersyns like O'Grady simply do not matter.
Anything Bushaitan did or was supposedly going to do was eeeevil by definition. Obama can do the same things as Bushaitan but the results will be infinitely better because He is a superiOr being. Iraq was the greatest crime of all time, but security operations (must not use the M-word!) in Afghanistan will attain new heights of nobility.

John's comments got me to thinking; what would Obama say, what would he say to something like 9/11...hmmm....
I feel so secure with him as the CinC, don't you?
