Nike and the Gap: Supporters of Democracy??

Micheletti: when these guys start opposing you, you really know you've gone too far. Nike can move its subcontracting to any number of "stable" regimes, and come out as a promoter of human rights. When they beat the U.S. State Department to it, that's just embarrassing.

What we see here is an amazing series of miscalculations: Zelaya miscalculating his level of support in the Honduran Congress; the coup leaders miscalculating both the international response (Actual sanctions? Naaaw) and the domestic response (Hondurans, rise up? Never!); Obama thinking he could hedge and get away with it, Clinton thinking that actively supporting the coup might work out despite universal international condemnation (outside the U.S.), Wingnut Congressman Connie Mack (R, FL) hysterically repeating that there was never a coup in a country whose name he can't pronounce...

What no one counted on (or wanted, with the possible exception of Zelaya) was that their actions and inaction would result in the first massive democratic uprising in Honduras in modern history.

Old Goriletti is just that way..!

'This guy is so BLIND that he will be not able to tell the difference between the presidential office and the tiny jail he marching to.'

HAHAHA!
Never heard of that old fart being described as perfectly as this!
Congrats, man!
You've nailed it!

This gives me hope!

"Micheletti: when these guys start opposing you, you really know you've gone too far."

At least, this idiotic position gives me hope that Micheletti does NOT have a real strategy to get out victorious. This guy is so BLIND that he will be not able to tell the difference between the presidential office and the tiny jail he marching to.
