Obrador Doing a Job Mexicans Didn’t Want Him to Do

Still not over his election defeat on July 2, 2006, Mexican socialist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador “was “sworn in” today as Mexico’s “legitimate” president.  And you thought Al Gore was nuts.  Undoubtedly a sore loser, at least Gore’s parallel presidency was limited to his bathroom mirror, Daily Kos, and NJ teacher union thugs.       

Democracy requires losers to accept the will of the people.  Otherwise, it cannot function and may not survive.  In Gore’s case, American democracy was too well established to overcome.  Mexico, however, is only beginning to overcome its tradition of fragile democracy.  Thankfully, it appears that most Mexicans refuse to give Obragore the time of day.  Of course, stay away from Oaxaca

Funny how libs love democracy when they win and try to override it when they lose. AMLO is a total nutjob and by his actions, he shows his selfishness and the disdain he holds for Mexican voters.

On Al Gore, we haven’t yet seen the last of him. As I have stated previously, I think he will run in 2008. If for some reason he wins the 2008 Democrat primary slugfest that I predict he will, it will be the biggest gift to the Republicans since John Kerry running in 2004.

By his actions it seems that Obragore is not interested in any democratic process that does not give him an entitlement to rule, even after repeated recounts. He was probably an effite whiny snob as a child and grew into a standard North American leftist as we saw when he lost. I also believe that he is potentially dangerous, yet being discredited daily. It is this discreditation that gives me some hope for most of Mexico (Oaxaca not included).
