tell 'em, Mr. Obama
I'm starting to warm up to this gentleman again. When the political crisis erupted in Honduras last year, the U.S. State Department seemed lost, confused, and misguided. When it counted, however, the Obama administration did the right thing for its Central American ally. That is, the administration (with some crucial arm twisting from Senator Jim DeMint (R, SC) and a few other Republicans) sided with the Honduran people in our historic fight to protect our democracy from Castro-Chavismo. As annoying as Republican politicians can sometimes be, I'm happy and grateful they are around to keep things in balance. Senator John Kerry (D, MA), for example, seemed ready to hand Honduras over to Hugo Chavez on a silver platter. What a piece of work that one is!
