Good news from Honduras!
On Sunday, the good people of Honduras voted "yes" for their country and "no" for Hugo Chavez's despicable attempt to overthrown their system.
Let's check some news reports:
"Porfirio “Pepe” Lobo has emerged as the new President of the Republic to govern the Country of Honduras during the years 2010-2014.
According to the TSE, more than 61.85% of registered Hondurans came out to vote on Sunday, a historic record.
The announcement from the TSE received a standing ovation from the attentive room of official observers and spectators."
We are not partisans about Honduras politics. We are not attached to one political party or the other.
At the same time, we do support the electoral process, the rule of law and constitutions!
Again, Honduras did well on Sunday and sent a loud message to those who did not understand what was happening in their country.
Like Mexico in 2006, Honduras has shown that it can run a clean and orderly election. (Check El Heraldo in Honduras!)
Like Mexico, I do expect the left to make some noise!
Zelaya will probably find a strong ally in Mexico's Lopez Obrador and the rest of the clownish left!
We hope that Pres Calderon, a serious guy, does not welcome Zelaya again! We also hope that Pres Uribe, the other serious guy, steps up and welcomes what just happened in Honduras!
In the end, it was good that the Obama administration reversed course and supported the constitution and people of Honduras!
