URIBE RIGHT-WING SO EXTENDING TERM LIMITS IS HYPOCRITICALLY FINE FOR HIM BUT NOT FOR CHAVEZ OR ZELAYA

Where are the hysterics from the right-wing over Colombia's legislature approving a referendum for a constitutional amendment allowing President Alvaro Uribe to run for a third term? Why isn't that as bad as Hugo Chavez seeking another term?

Manuel Zelaya was ousted in a military coup for simply wanting to survey the Honduran people in a non-binding action as to whether or not they would like to see a Constituent Assembly on that same question in Honduras, which Assembly could not have occurred without some binding legislation and could not have taken place until Zelaya had already left office as President.

The answer as to why the right-wing is silent concerning Uribe is because Uribe is right-wing.

The only time extending term limits is bad is when someone on the so-called left might benefit. It's that simple, and it's called utter hypocrisy.
