US on the wrong side again...

For all those who didn't realize before the election that Barack Obama was a fan of leftist dictators, we follow the spectacles of the US being wrong on Venezuela and Iran with the US being wrong on Honduras.:
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton met with ousted Honduran President Miguel Zelaya in Washington Tuesday, signaling unequivocal US support for Mr. Zelaya’s return to office.

Let's re-write that slightly, to make the situation clear:
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton met with [legally and democratically] ousted Honduran President Miguel Zelaya [and aspirant leftist dictator] in Washington Tuesday, signaling unequivocal US support for [unrepentant leftist] Mr. Zelaya’s [illegal and unconstitutional] return to office [against the Honduran Constitution and the wishes of the Honduran people].


Matthew Hoy has it right...
The insanity of this policy by the Obama administration cannot be understated. It used to be the GOP that was (oftentimes rightly) criticized for propping up tyrants and despots because they were “our” tyrants and despots. At the height of the Cold War, a valid defense for that realpolitik position could be made. But where is the greater evil on the horizon that we are willing to sacrifice the Honduran people for? It is no longer the Soviet Union and worldwide communism.

In fact, the main evil we face in much of the world today is the thugocratic regimes like Iran and Venezuela, wacko nut-jobs like North Korea, and communist China. Yet, in this situation, we’ve actually allied ourselves with Venezuela’s Chavez!
