Obama calls Honduras coup “illegal”….


New heights in chutzpah from the Oval Office… Hot BBC article with a video of the big Zero labeling the Honduras removal of a President, ignoring rule of law, as “illegal”. Let me get this straight… Iran’s stolen elections are legitimized by the Ayatollah’s certification, flying serious excrement in the face of reality; and the legal removal of a law-breaking SOB as Honduras President (and replacement of their next in command) per their law is not?

BBC video of Obama “illegal” statement

Note: No embed code provided…

Per their accompanying article:

US President Barack Obama has described the removal of Honduran President Manuel Zelaya as illegal.

His remarks came after left-wing Latin American leaders declared their support for the deposed leader, who was expelled by the military on Sunday.


Our correspondent says that even though the international community regards the exiled leader as the legitimate leader of the country, any comeback will not be easy.

Speaking after a meeting with Colombian President Alvaro Uribe, Mr Obama said Mr Zelaya remained the democratically-elected leader of Honduras.

And he said a “terrible precedent” would be set if the coup were not reversed.

Earlier on Monday, speaking in Managua, the capital of Nicaragua, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez spelled out his opposition to the situation in Honduras.

“We cannot allow a return to the past. We will not permit it,” Mr Chavez said.

He spoke after talks with Mr Zelaya, President Rafael Correa of Ecuador and Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega.

Sorry… but what was that about meddling again?

My irony meter just exploded. obama, a man who makes it a point to ignore our Constitution, claims that that the Hondurans following theirs is illegal.

Maybe obama is the anti-christ. He is certainly anti-truth, anti-democracy, anti-freedom, and anti-human.

Wait…….didn’t he say…….uh…..I thought he said…….but I’m sure he said…….ah, Hell.


“Judgment to lead” my @$$. What is it with this big-earred moron sticking up for the oppressors of freedom? First the situations in Georgia and Iran, and now this. Oh, and how could I forget Obama’s willingness to sell out Israel?

Given his stupidity, I’m surprised Obama hasn’t confused a window for a door yet. Oh wait…

White House spokesman Ari Fleischer says the Bush Administration met with a broad spectrum of Venezuelan leaders during the past few months. He said the message was always the same, that Washington would not back a coup against President Chavez. “United States officials explicitly made clear, repeatedly, to opposition leaders that the United States would not support a coup,” he said.

coo coo… the birds have come home to roost.

Is that some attempt at moral equivalency, blast?

If so, you do understand this was not a coup, right?
Do you understand this is an example of obama’s hypocrisy and why?

Please expand on your post to clear up any misunderstanding.

Great post. So far Obama seems to be more concerned about the well-being of evil dictators rather than the people they oppress.

It took him 2 weeks to say that what the Iranian thugs were doing to the oppressed protesters was wrong, yet it took one day to state that outing the Honduran dictator is illegal and wrong. He stands up for the elitist dictators and snubs the oppressed who are fighting for their freedom!

Great pick libs..

I like oranges more than apples. I buy the Fujis, which are good, but it seems like I have to force myself to eat them.

Faust translated Honduran news articles regarding the removal of the Honduran president. Legal and members of his own party support it.

You can lead leftists to rational thought, but can’t make them think.

@Hard Right:

THAT would make an awesome bumber sticker! LOL 🙂
