Good News From Ecuador

Posted by Phoenix Woman on April 27, 2009

Rafael Correa has been re-elected, apparently quite handily:

President Rafael Correa, a leftist champion of the poor, declared re-election victory Sunday just moments after the polls closed — a win that breaks sharply with Ecuador’s history of political instability.

Three separate exit polls said Correa garnered well over half the vote in an eight-candidate field, making him the first president elected in Ecuador in 30 years without a runoff.

This news won’t get much play on our evening news, which is why I’m passing it along to you. Correa is yet another lefty who has shown that “protectionism” — or rather, not letting multinational corporations and banks ravage you under the pretense of helping you — is not a dirty word.
