Obama and Clinton continue to dance the 'coup cha-cha-cha'

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton continue to dance the Coup Cha-Cha-Cha.

Obama: "We believe that the coup was not legal and that President Zelaya remains the president of Honduras, the democratically elected president there." [JG: Zelaya is just taking a vacation in Costa Rica.]

Notice that he does not say that he condemns and repudiates the army coup d'etat.

Clinton: Despite Obama's comments, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the administration was not formally designating the ouster as a military coup for now, a step that would force a cut-off of most U.S. aid to Honduras.

Under U.S. law, no aid -- other than for the promotion of democracy -- may be provided to a country whose elected head of government has been toppled in a military coup.

"We do think that this has evolved into a coup," Clinton told reporters, adding the administration was withholding that determination for now.

Obama and Clinton do not want to withhold aid from their new "democratic friend" in Honduras.

Caballeros: Que cara mas dura tienen estos dos individuos.

They continue to support the coup "under the table." With Roberto Michelletti in the Honduras presidential palace, Uncle Sam has assured himself of having acquired a servile ass kisser.
