View Full Version : Does the Honduran coup map onto a US partisan split?

I wasn't sure how to phrase that, but I remember the Iranian protests actually getting some right wingers to think that Obama's detachment was a good call and some left wingers who wanted him to show more support. I haven't been following the arguments over this one but it seems to me to translate more easily into blue team vs red team: Obama backs the left wing deposed president and we support him, conservatives back the relatively conservative congress and military that performed the coup. Is it playing out that way or am I missing something?
