Good Coup Bad Coup

I know nothing of the political situation in Thailand. Literally nothing. So my question is whether the Bush administration will consider this a good coup or a bad coup. The failed coup in Venezuela was a good coup, it certainly would be considered a good coup if whoever they consider to be the forces of good and light seized power in Iran, they explicitly advocated such a thing in Iraq, etc...

Obviously our own country is not a stranger to chucking out rulers it doesn't like, but still the question lingers... when is a coup a good coup?
