US President Barack Obama has again shown his affinity for socialist regimes by calling for reinstatement of former Honduras President Manuel Zelaya. Obama joined the ilk of Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez, Nicaraguan dictator Daniel Ortega and Cuban dictator Fidel Castro in backing the ousted Zelaya.

Hondurans this week emphatically showed their love of country and democracy by unceremoniously tossing Zelaya who was attempting to rule by decree. Former President Zelaya had ambitions to be “El Presidente para vida”, president for life following in the tyrannical footsteps of Chavez and Castro. In a stand that would have made the US founding fathers proud, the Honduran army, courts and Congress performed their constitutional duties and at least for the short-term kept their country free from the neo-Marxists already controlling Chile, Uruguay, Brazil, Argentina, Ecuador, Bolivia, Paraguay and Venezuela.

Soon to be serving out the remaining 7 months of Zelaya’s term, Roberto Micheletti, the head of the Honduran Congress has stated that Zelaya’s ouster was constitutional and legal. He has accused the former president of violating the constitution by sponsoring a referendum outlawed by their Supreme Court that would have over ridden constitutionally stated presidential term limits.

I ask you, will President Obama help to overthrow one of the few remaining democracies in South America?

Viva Honduras! Viva la revolucion!

Someone somewhere in power got ousted by...constitutional law?

This probably has them shaking in their boots.

This should be the wake up call for all Americans, and clearly expose our "commander and chief" President Obama for what he is.

Sadly it will be ignored, and the MSM will either suppress this news or spin it in ways that are in favor of Obama.

He openly supports an elected person who tried to circumvent their constitution in order to create a dictatorship,,, Even calls his removal "illegal"

Is that because you were planning on doing something like that here in the USA Obama?

Maybe find a way to skip that pesky election and vote thing, and simply make yourself president for life?

Obama has a superiority complex. Since he's black you have to worship him remember? I am far from racist, but i see him for who he is...using his skin to his advantage.

Viva el Presidente Obama!

The only difference between here and there is that their congress sought to stick to their constitution, ours won't.

So today I want to announce my support for el Presidente for life Obama. I want to be a part of the new regieme. I want to live in a nice house and feed my family.

Is there anyone here I can turn in?

um... wow...

You took a subject regarding political philosophy & the events in another country, and turned it into complete racist drivel.

You say you are far from racist, but then say that this (and any lack of media coverage) is because of his skin color!?

I do not think what he says was a bit racist. All he said was that Obama uses his skin color to his advantage. How is that racist?

It's well known that Zelaya and Chavez are thick as thieves.

Both the referendum and the firing of the military chief have been declared illegal by the Honduran Supreme Court. Nonetheless, Mr. Zelaya intended yesterday to use ballots printed in Venezuela to conduct the vote anyway. - Hans Bader

I would think there are capable printers in Honduras. At least the former president was not protectionist.

Where does the Jeffersonian inspired Cato Institute stand on Zelaya's removal?

Even the Cato Institute, which espouses antiwar positions and a dovish, liberal foreign policy, approved of Honduras’s removal of its oppressive ruler. Cato’s Juan Carlos Hidalgo notes that “the removal from office of Zelaya on Sunday by the armed forces is the result of his continuous attempts to promote a referendum that would allow for his reelection, a move that had been declared illegal by the Supreme Court and the Electoral Tribunal and condemned by the Honduran Congress and the attorney general. Unfortunately, the Honduran constitution does not provide an effective civilian mechanism for removing a president from office after repeated violations of the law, such as impeachment in the U.S. Constitution. Nonetheless, the armed forces acted under the order of the country’s Supreme Court, and the presidency has been hastily bestowed on a civilian figure — the president of Congress — as specified by the constitution.” - Hans Bader

The entire Hans Bader report:

Regarding the Cato Institute

Unsurprisingly, Mr. Zelaya is a big fan of Mr. Chavez. He has aped his hero in many ways, including aligning Honduras with the Marxist ‘Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas.’

He has also imitated Mr. Chavez in his rhetorical attacks on the United States, and his efforts to control Honduras’ private businesses.

Indeed, like Mr. Chavez, Mr. Zelaya has even sought to take over all the Honduran television and radio stations "to carry government information for two hours a day." A project that quickly failed. - commentary by Steve Gilbert of an AP report

Aligning with Marxists, controlling private business and attempting to control the media. Why does that sound so familiar?

The entire commentary:

Honduran Pres, Chavez Pal ‘Arrested’

Regarding control of the media. Chip Reid and Helen Thomas take Robert Gibbs to task:

Are we headed toward becoming a "banana republic"?

Why on earth that on all accounts of some situation in another nation do the "know it alls" 1000's of miles away come out of the garbage cans? Do you know the actual situation down there? since when did every rebellion in every election constitute some BS "constitutionalist talk" in favour for one side?

How the heck do you know this is the consensus of the majority of Hondurans? As far as I can see it, its a faction who disagree, that being said whos doing any good here shutting down one side in favour for another? Who gave you that right?

Whether many of you like it or not President Zelaya still is constitutionally the elected president there, the issue was over his supposed intention to extend his term, nevertheless such a measure was not taken prior to him being ousts and to be frank nobody has the right to jump the gun and kick a democratically elected leader out because they dont agree with something that leader "is going to do".

Do you think conflict in politics should always be resolved by the coup? Is every group justified to a coup? Whats this about socialism? Can we cut this garbage now? We are talking about the rights to both sides of honduras.

I tell ya the amount of tools of the rightwing mouthpieced media. I remember over the last 20years when the majority of folks who marched for freedom didnt even get an inch of attention by the typical rightwing suspects and people of these united states, all because these folks were left. It appears the only time and rightie gives a damn about a voice of a fact is when its against a leftwing government. Freedom has no boundaries, the rights of a voice applies to both sides, maybe folks should get a clue and begin supporting the rights of freedom across the lines.

Obama is a socialist

Arthur Scargill is a socialist. Barack Obama is not.

Saul Alinsky was a socialist. Barack Obama is an Alinsky disciple.
Barack Obama is a socialist. And not just the armchair, philosopher variety.

Liberal Democrats used to be normal Americans before the Boomer Left rose to power. Hubert Humphrey and Harry Truman had a strong sense of American morality. They despised the Stalinist Left and fought to keep them out of the Democrat Party. They were sensitive to ordinary shame and guilt, the emotions that make us civilized. When Bob Dole asked "Where is the shame?" in the 1996 presidential election, the answer came out: Not in the modern Democrat Party. People without guilt or shame make merciless power mongers. - James Lewis, September 25, 2008 American Thinker

That is the key. Castro, Chavez, Zelaya, Clinton, Alinsky and Obama are merciless power mongers. Castro had many of his own supporters killed shortly after his rise to power. Do you think he felt any guilt? Obama idolizes Castro and Chavez. He plays to them constantly. Why? Obama has no guilt, no boundaries, no contributions, no loyalty to this country that nurtured him, no constitutional right to be president of the United States, and like Zelaya, that constitution has and will not stand in his way.

"Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents." - Bill Ayers, Obama mentor & Weather Underground Terrorist

Obama's mad his parents were never parents. They abandoned him for their own selfish interests. This country served as his parent and enabled him to prosper. He will kill the country in their stead.
