Kerplunk - Common sense from Down Under: Obama - slow to support real democracy, quick to support autocracy

In Honduras they have a one term limit for the position of president. The limit was introduced to ensure that the country did not go down the path of other Latin American countries that historically have seen democratically elected leaders usurp power for themselves in the same way that Chavez has in Venezuela.

Zelaya was trying to circumvent the Constitution by ensuring he could get elected for further terms.
