What the!?

Let me get this straight.

You can't bring yourself to condemn violence against freedom-loving protestors in Iran for weeks, but it takes you two minutes to condemn the overthrow of an oppressive regime in Honduras....

What the!?

Obama, dude, whatever mind you had, is gone now.

I don't even have the words. Instead, I will let Reuters speak for me:

The interim president picked to rule Honduras after the army ousted leftist President Manuel Zelaya said on Monday the coup had saved the country from swinging to a radical Venezuelan-style socialism....

President Zelaya was moving the country toward 'Chavismo', he was following this model which is not accepted by Hondurans," he told Reuters, using a Spanish term for the style of socialism championed by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez....

"Honduras is more of a democracy today than it was three days ago," Micheletti told Reuters. "There was no coup here. The country and the majority of its citizens support the democratic succession...."

Micheletti told Reuters that if Zelaya had remained in power, Honduras would have ended up following his whims rather than the law.
