Choosing Friends Carefully? Obama Bans Honduras, Welcomes Ahmadinejad, Gaddafi, and Chavez

Why can't the president get Honduras right? I wrote about this a couple of days ago when the US State Department revoked the visas of the Honduran president and 14 Honduran judges. This was in reaction to their enforcement of the Honduras Constitution, which removed wannabe-dictator Jose Manuel Zelaya from power, replacing him with an interim president until elections could be held. Sounds like the rule of law prevailed, right? So why has President Obama banned the interim president of Honduras from traveling to the United States?

Meanwhile, guess who's coming to dinner? That's right, the full monty of authoritarian despots will be on hand in New York, given legitimacy by our government when President Obama addresses the United Nations next week. These dictators include Ahmadinejad of Iran, Chavez of Venezuela, Castro of Cuba, Ortega of Nicaragua, and Gaddafi of Libya, among others. But poor Honduras, a democracy with a fully-functioning government elected by the people, is being blacklisted.

Our president is siding with Hugo Chavez and Raul Castro instead of the Constitution of a democratically elected ally. Not only is this shameful, it raises a lot of questions about Obama's troubled history of flirting with Marxists. It continues a pattern that spans the president's entire life, as he wrote in his autobiography, Dreams of My Father: [emphasis mine]
To avoid being mistaken for a sell-out, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists."
Is President Obama still choosing his friends carefully? Or am I just a racist, hate-monger for bringing this up? I know one thing. There's more evidence that our president is a Marxist than there is to the tired narrative that Rep. Joe Wilson is a racist.

Greta has the exclusive interview with the interim president of Honduras, Roberto Micheletti. Unfortunately, other than Fox News and a few conservative publications, there has been little media coverage. Maybe David Letterman will ask him about it, if not the five TV news show anchors the president will appear before on Sunday. I won't hold my breath.
