Exactly as I suspected

'From a reader:

Jonah [Goldberg]:

I have written you several times over the years. We are "friends" on Facebook and I loved Liberal Fascism.

I was born in Honduras and my maternal relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins) all live there.

The country is bewildered that the world, especially the United States, is not on their side. Zelaya was confident of his plans to convert Honduras into a Venezuelan satellite. The Honduran people are proud of their constitution and are proud to have a functioning democratic system. Zelaya was replaced by a member of his own party who vows to see that this November's presidential election takes place. What happened was not a "coup" but a bipartisan effort to save the nation.

It is heartbreaking for me to see President Obama throw Honduras under the bus. He did not speak out when Zelaya was attempting to stage a sham "constitutional referendum" with ballots printed in Venezuela.

My mother immigrated from Honduras and is a registered Republican because she remembers how the GOP stood up to communists when her countrymen were afraid of Fidel Castro. Now, Hugo Chavez is threatening to invade her beloved homeland and an American president is not standing up for a free and democratic Honduras.

I am sure there are millions of Hondurans going through the same bewildered phase right now. They have recieved a primer in 'How Obama thinks', and its not pretty. This is not the first democracy that will wake up to the enormous change US voters have wreaked upon the world. Would McCain have been a bigger friend to democrats across the world? Maybe, but I wouldn't have counted on that.
