Perhaps politicians don’t like to be reminded that they have to follow the law too

Can someone please explain to me why the US is taking such a hard line on Honduras?

[Former Honduran Ambassador Roberto] Flores … said he believed Zelaya's ouster was legal because the Supreme Court had ordered his arrest and Congress voted to remove him from office. However, the soldiers flew Zelaya out of the country instead of turning him over for prosecution, in a move that even Honduran military lawyers have said was illegal but necessary.

The US responds to the unanimity of the Honduran official in deposing Zelaya (due to his illegal and unconstitutional actions) by revoking the visas of the new government officials.

So, the Congress, Supreme Court and the military were all behind removing Zelaya from office and the US is opposed to this because…?
