You say you want a revolution

In Honduras, their supreme court ordered the military to depose the president for acting unlawfully. DC has a write up. It is interesting how our leaders are responding. Says Hillary Clinton:

the action taken against Hondurasí president should be condemned by everyone

And:

Obama says Honduras coup was “illegal” and Zelaya remains the president.

Wow. The statists support the state. Who would have guessed? I don’t know much about law in Honduras but the supreme court ordered the removal of the president. Not exactly as though there was a violent insurrection or overthrow there.

    Yeah, but Zelaya is a friend of Chavez! The One just HAS to try to keep him in office, and screw what the law says in that nasty little country.

    This has to be very disconcerting for Obama. First, students, young people mind you, protest election via ballot box stuffing, continuing even after community organizers start attacking them with axes and now a president acting unconstitutionally to extend his reign in power is removed by a military loyal to the country under the direction of the supreme court.

    It’s back to the drawing board for ways to retain power should Obama be found wanting. No Chicago-style elections, no extra-constitutional shenanigans, what’s a Progressive to do?

    This is a huge insight into Obama’s thinking.

    We have a socialist in Honduras who subverts their constitution and their government does a proper “check” of power and gets rid of him (it’s not a “coup” as some people are calling it). Then, Obama supports the deposed leader (along with Castro and Chavez) and says it’s an outrage that they’ve gotten rid of him.

    This, is more telling than anything else he’s done so far.

    It tells me that Obama believes executive authority is above that of any annoying constitution.

    His stance is extremely disconcerting.

    It was exactly the opposite of illegal, and practically the definition of an orderly, peaceful transition of power – and the new executive was another member of the former president’s own party. The referendum-action was an illegal move by the wanna-be-president-for-life.

    Anyone remember when Bush came out against the military coup in Turkey a few years ago (you know, like the other 10 or so in the last 20 years) that was launched to keep the country secular in the face of becoming an Islamist “Republic” after an election?

    I think the military acted properly in both cases, but it’s funny that our Presidents are so clearly troubled by the upsetting of the status quo.

    The Geek’s worried that it could happen HERE, to HIM. And with the way he’s imposing big gubmint on everything, it could.

    On a side note. Uncle, is there any way you can dump or change that ad that has the Obamination’s pic in it? It’s bad enough to have to see him everywhere else on the web.

    I’m not a Honduran constitutional scholar, but everything I’ve read so far tells me that the Hondurans are doing things by the(ir) book.

    Unfortunately, this sets a bad example for TOTUS and Pugsley and could lead to questions from the thinking portions of their population.

    I ain’t even going to get started on pots, kettles, and other hands with TOTUS’ Iran/Honduas compare and contrast statements.
