Potential Deal Reached In Honduras
— DrewM

Looks like there will be a temporary power sharing agreement that lets Zelaya back in but with some limitations on his power.

The deal, struck late on Thursday, will allow the country's Congress to vote on whether Mr. Zelaya, forced out of power at gunpoint on June 28, can return to oversee the country's national elections scheduled for November 29 and serve out his term, which ends in January.

...U.S. officials and many analysts were confident the deal would hold. Among other things, it calls for a government of national unity and for all sides to recognize the result of the November election. It also would restrict Mr. Zelaya's power if he does return through several means, including handing power of the armed forces temporarily to the top electoral body.

It's not a done deal yet as many in the Honduran Congress aren't thrilled with letting this little Chavez wanna be anywhere near the levers of power.

Here are the bits that bother me.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, during a visit to Islamabad, called it "an historic agreement," saying it was the first time that a Latin American country had suffered a break in the constitutional order that had been normalized through talks and non-violence.

...If the deal holds, it will go down as a foreign policy victory for Obama administration, which sent a high-level diplomatic mission to Honduras earlier this week to secure a deal after five months of one of Latin America's biggest political crisis in years.

Screw them. The Obama administration has bungled this from the start. What the Honduran's did was well within their legal framework and we should have supported them as they worked through this crisis.

The fact that the United States took the side of two-bit thug and punished a small country for having the temerity to chose the rule of law over tyranny. The fact that we were on the wrong side of this fight from the get go is not a victory but a mark of shame we will carry for a long while.

Good luck to the Honduran people and please know that what Obama did was Not In My Name.

1 If Obama believes Zelaya should be in power in Honduras does he also believe Blagojevich should be in power in Illinois?

Corrupt thugs of a feather flock together.  Obambi just recognized a kindred spirit.  It'd be a shame if something happens to Zelaya while he tries to get rid of that pesky constitution.  As for Obambi, I pray for our secret service, and pray that we make it to the four year mark.  I figure if he manages to get reelected, there's nothing worth saving anymore, and it's time to start over.

40 From what I've heard, Zelaya will be saddled with a very hostile legislature and military, keeping him in line, for a few weeks before the Honduran people get their chance to vote the thug out of office. IF things work out like that, it might be the best possible outcome short of a bullet between the bastard's ears.

Let me 'splain it like this, cardinal Imagine if W in February '08 decided that he was going to run for re-election, then the military removed him from office. The military then put Nancy Pelosi in office until the election in November. That is the best analogy I've got. One guy oversteps his authority, the yank him out of the way and carry on.

Obama is a vapid fraud wrapped up in an empty sham, and packaged as a pretty scam.  He will always be on the wrong side of everything (Iran elections, Honduran ousting of Zelaya, dithering on Afghanistan, meeting with Iran and the Norks without preconditions, revoking the missile shield in Eastern Europe, refusing face time with the Dali Lama to placate China, nationalizing car companies, the banking industry and health care, and hobnobbing with various and sundry dictator thugs).  Everything this man does is going to lead to epic failure and chaos.  I can't believe that Hillary would be so stupid and weak to be tied to him, but she's an idiot too.  I pray to God that we survive this trainwreck of an Administration and the Congress that we've been cursed with.  Thanks a lot 52%.  I'm sure the people in Honduras, Iran, Poland, the Czech Republic and Tibe want to extend their thanks too.

53 The negotiated agreement is a neat trap for both Zelaya and Obama.  If the democratically-elected Congress of Honduras votes not to reinstate Zelaya, they will by definition be acting democratically, and the Obama Administration will no longer be able to call Zelaya's absence from office "undemocratic."

62 The correctness of Honduras' removal of Zelaya is even clearer when contrasted with recent events in next-door neighbor Nicaragua, where apparently a packed court, acting quickly before opposition judges could arrive, voted to overturn a similar president-for-only-one-term law, paving the way for Daniel Ortega to go full Chavez.

Obviously we cannot give allegiance to the criminal regime in Washington until such time as Presidente Richard Hussein Nixon is restored to the office which was stolen from him in a illegal coup by Democrats in 1974.

And since Nixon, Agnew and Ford are all gone now, power must devolve to a remaining high-level member of the Nixon Administration.

Hmmm…let’s see…who could we get?…got it!

69 No, no, no, no!  If they compromise their constitution to give in to this power hungry communist, even the tiniest bit, they'll be throwing their country away.  Clinton wouldn't know a "break in the constitutional order" if it smacked her upside the head with a bat, and any Honduran that listens to her is a fool or traitor.  For the sake of existence, they must not give in to unlawful international pressure to reinstate this wannabe dictator.
