PeeBo Cuts Aid to Honduras (UPDATED)

(UPDATE) US revokes visas of interim government officials from Honduras.

In another stunning display of Hopenchange, PeeBo has cut aid to Honduras in response to the ouster of (Former) President Zelaya. The Obama Regime has called for the re-installment of Zelaya after he was forcibly removed from the country earlier this year.

For a refresher, click here. In a nutshell here's what went down. First, President Zelaya, in defiance of Honduras' constitution sought a voter referendum to allow him as President to stay in office for more than one term. The Honduran Constitution explicitly states that no President can serve more than a single term, and anyone who advocates a longer term will be ineligible to serve for several years. The Supreme Court ruled his actions unconstitutional. Zelaya had Hugo Chavez, the monkey who runs Venezuela, ship ballots with the referendum to Honduras, so Zelaya could carry out the vote. The Military seized the ballots, where upon, Zelaya had ACORN break into the military installation where they were being stored, and begin to distribute the ballots. When approached by Military Commander, Gen. Romeo Vásquez Velásquez who informed the President that his actions were not legal, Zelaya promptly fired him. The Supreme Court then ordered Gen. Romeo Vásquez Velásquez reinstated, yet Zelaya refused. At this point the AG announced that the referendum was illegal and anyone caught participating in the disbursement of the illegal ballots would be subject to arrest and prosecution. Zelaya did not back down, was arrested, and ultimately deported from Honduras.

It's important to note that the Honduran Constitution does not have a method in place for impeachment or removal from office of a standing president. As a result, the Honduran Congress, Supreme Court and Attorney General acted in accordance with the law available to them and had Zelaya arrested and deported. Not only was what happened in Honduras not a coup, it was the exact opposite. It was in fact, the prevention of a coup.

Now, President PeeBo has cut off military aid and is threatening to cut more aid if Zelaya is not reinstated as President in Honduras. Most of us knew PeeBo was dummer 'n a box a rocks, but isn't there someone in the federal government somewhere (like I dunno, the State Department) who understands the constitution of Honduras?! Instead we have the Clown in Chief cutting off aid to an ally for practicing, wait for it... Democracy!

Conclusion: Libtards hate Democracy!

CL, I have been keeping track of all decisions made by BozObama since taking office. He has made exactly ONE that makes sense. (well, ramping up in Afghanistan might bring his total to two).

This guy is a commie, pure and simple. If he is not stopped, he will do more to aid the collapse of South America (and the US btw) than Nikita, or Fidel could have imagined in their wildest dreams.

BTW, thanks for the link.

Andy- Thanks for stopping by! I agree with your assessment of PeeBo, and I believe that Health Care Reform is going to take this guy down a peg or seven. He's pushing to ram too much through and with his strong approval numbers now at -11, it's just a matter of time before we have the first 'first term' lame duck POTUS ever.

2010 is not shaping up to be nice for the Dems.
