40. Wasn't the reason that we ok'd the coup in Honduras is their president wanted
wanted to change the constitution? So he could be reelected for another term. Egypt's president has been in office for 30 years? How about Chavez who also wanted more terms by changing their constitution. The right wingers were out in full dress uniform with "dictator"...But not if it's our dictator? Disgusting.
