Context is quickly emerging surrounding the recent power shift in Honduras, and it’s becoming increasingly obvious that the so-called ‘coup’ wasn’t a coup at all – but rather an effort by Hondurans to preserve their democratic system from a potential left wing despot.
Writes Ray Walser of the Heritage Foundation in the New York Post: A coup to protect a constitution: Honduras ousts rogue president.
And Charles Krauthammer on Fox News, via Real Clear Politics: Obama is wrong.
In Honduras, a president acting illegally has been removed from office and replaced in democratic fashion. The only thing complicating this is that said president was a would-be leftist strongman – and thus enjoys automatic support of fellow left-wing authoritarians in the region, and apparently, the President of the United States of America.
