DeMint on Honduras: right on!

Clip here if the YouTube embed is failing. (?)

What a giant disappointment is President Obama’s nominee for Assistant Secretary of State Mr. Valenzuela.
The Hondurans seem analogous to a home owner with a small yard beset by a burglar.
The home owner breaks out a weapon of noticeable caliber, and ventilates the burglar.
Unfortunately, the kinetic energy of the impact moves the corpse off the home owner’s property.
Then a bunch of pointy-headed little bureaucrats show up and claim that the final resting spot of the burglar is prima facie evidence of excessive force.

They told me if I voted for John McCain, my country would look like it is run by people with a disturbing affinity towards fascism. And they were right!

Fausta remains reference (a) on this story.

Preach it, Brother Jim!

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.):

“We have to be honest, and there’s a lot of blame to go around, but I have to mention George Bush, and I have to mention Ted Stevens, and I’m afraid I even have to mention John McCain,” he said.
DeMint offered a long list of complaints about McCain’s record in the Senate and on the campaign trail.
“McCain, who is proponent of campaign finance reform that weakened party organizations and basically put George Soros in the driver’s seat,” DeMint said. “His proposal for amnesty for illegals. His support of global warming, cap-and-trade programs that will put another burden on our economy. And of course, his embrace of the bailout right before the election was probably the nail in our coffin this last election. And he has been an opponent of drilling in ANWR, at a time when energy is so important. It really didn’t fit the label, but he was our package.”
Bush and Stevens, he said, had corrupted the party brand by expanding the size of government and engaging in wasteful government spending. Had Republicans not strayed from their core beliefs in recent years, DeMint argued, the election results might have been different.
“Americans do prefer a traditional conservative government,” he said. “They just did not believe Republicans were going to give it to them.”

Not much left to say but AMEN!
