The Wages Of Apology

Obama’s European Apology Tour® is paying off with big dividends in Latin America.

Backing Chavez is:

— Manuel Zelaya, the president of Honduras, who last year called on Washington to legalize drugs because he said it would stop drug-related killings in Honduras.

— Morales, the Bolivian president who went on a hunger strike in the presidential palace last week until his Congress passed an elections law believed to help him. The fast caused Bolivia’s protestor-in-chief to miss the pre-summit gathering earlier this week of U.S. adversaries hosted by Chavez.

But he was able to announce that he would join Chavez in vetoing the key document about the problems facing the hemisphere that comes out of every summit.

— Ortega of Nicaragua, who also said he would veto the document. Before Ortega took office, the United States warned that his election could cause the country to lose U.S. aid. Fidel Castro was one of the first to congratulate him.

Ortega has a long history with the United States – as the one-time head of the Sandinista rebels in Nicaragua that the United States opposed.

Most of these leaders are members of the Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas, a group of a heads of state known by its Spanish initials, ALBA. It includes Bolivia, Cuba, Dominica, Honduras and Nicaragua, and was formed in 2004 by Chavez.

While Obama’s advisers play this as Obama being more popular than Chavez in Venezuela – no really, they do –  One would be remiss in not pointing out that some very small leaders of very small countries with very bad economies feel perfectly comfortable in slamming America.

Obama is setting up to be a doormat for tyrannies worldwide. Which is setting America up, too. Not good.

    Do you suppose 0-man has learned any lessons from his diplomatic efforts over the last couple of months or do you think it has all sailed over his head?

    He is not playing the doormat, he is ONE OF THEM. Remember, he, too, attacked the USA and the pictures imply that he agrees with whatever they say. And judging by his past associations, past actions and the words in his book, he is excatly like them, he detests the USA and wants to “change” it.

    Feeblemind, I don’t think there are any lessons for him to learn. I think his diplomatic efforts have accomplished exactly what he wanted them to accomplish. Unfortunately for those of us who love this country, his objective is the destruction of our current way of life, just like Al Qaeda and his diplomatic efforts are right on track with that.
