The leader & nation of the free world must condemn Venezuela's actions as soon as possible. But is Barack Obama up to the job on either front?
Probably not. President Obama stood with Manuel Zelaya, who was attempting to abolish term limits in Honduras via an illegal national referendum last year, instead of standing with the Honduras People, Supreme Court, Congress, and Constitution - all of which called for the legally forced removal of the dictator wannabe.
That is just one example. We could go down the Cuban road where Obama has favored a weaker stance against the Communist Castro's regime and the Hugo Chavez road where Obama has joked about and dismissed the "presidente" of Venezuela constantly. That kind of attitude towards evil is often a tell-tale sign of inability and inexperience on foreign policy matters.
Obama will probably condemn Venezuela in a really tough letter to the United Nations, and then accept another anti-European book from Chavez whenever they meet again. I could be mistaken, but with the President's own disgustingly horrid record on despots across the entire world since being sworn in......
What do you think?
