How do you say "thank you" in Honduras?

President Zelaya of Honduras was ousted from office in a constitutional dispute, and sent packing overseas.

Since then, "The administration of President Barack Obama has cut off millions of dollars in military and development aid to Honduras in an effort to pressure for Zelaya's reinstatement."

Further, against all reason and sense, Obama has allied himself with Chavez, Castro and the communist left in support of Zelaya.

What do we get in return?

"During a visit to Brazil last week, Zelaya spoke of the stop at Soto Cano, also known as Palmerola, and voiced suspicions of U.S. complicity in the coup . . . Zelaya said. "Now, there are some elements of the CIA that could have been involved. When they took me by plane to Costa Rica, it was a short flight but the plane made a stop at the Palmerola air base to refuel," he added. "Palmerola is a base administered by Honduran and U.S. troops. If it was a short flight, some 40 minutes, why did they have to refuel at Palmerola base?" Patricia Valle, who served as Zelaya's deputy foreign minister, reiterated those suspicions Saturday . . . "Zelaya was taken to Palmerola," Valle told the AP. "The United States was involved in the coup against Zelaya."

Zelaya isn't our friend, even while we're helping him.

Why help him?

Again, tell me it is not so. "Obama has allied himself with Chavez, Castro and the communist left".
If you paid any attention at all to what this guy said you would have not only known this but would have expected it sooner. The only transparency I see is this guy never concealed who he really was if one had any intelligence at all. Of course, the Kool-aid crowd was drinking it up pretty heavy.
Oh well, all he can do is destroy the economy, setback the capitalist system by 100 years and screw up the heath of millions of honest hard working american, oops strike that hard working as in Broward the unemployment is up to11%.
