Thank You Sen. DeMint

In my previous post, I opined that President Obama, in his efforts to reinstate former dictator, Manuel Zelaya to the Honduran presidency, is breaching Honduran law, specifically article 239 of the Honduran constitution.

Article 239 reads as follows:
No citizen that has already served as head of the Executive Branch can be President or Vice-President.

Whoever violates this law or proposes its reform, as well as those that support such violation directly or indirectly, will immediately cease in their functions and will be unable to hold any public office for a period of 10 years.
President Obama on Tuesday reiterated his support for Mr. Zelaya during a commencement address at Moscow’s New Economic School:
America cannot and should not seek to impose any system of government on any other country, nor would we presume to choose which party or individual should run a country...

Even as we meet here today, America supports now the restoration of the democratically-elected President of Honduras, even though he has strongly opposed American policies...
"America cannot and should not seek to impose any system of government on any other country... " Heh, vintage Obama.

I also opined yesterday that the president is deserving of a harsh condemnation for making a mockery out of the Honduran constitution. And, I called upon Sen. Jim DeMint - who, on Thursday had already lambasted the president for siding with the enemies of freedom and Democracy [Manuel Zelaya, Hugo Chavez and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad] - to officially condemn Obama's breach of Honduran law.

Today, Sen. DeMint delivered a speech on the Senate floor calling on Obama to support the rule of law in Honduras. Not exactly a condemnation [and that's understandable], but the senator deserves a big "thank you" for standing up to a president who is rapidly transforming this country into both an ally and a sponsor of tyranny and despotism.

Thank you, Senator!

The senator's contact page is here.

Send him a big "Thanx"!
