Fidel Castro was not impressed with Obama

Join the club.
Via NY Post: Fidel Castro — speaking out for the first time since President Obama’s historic visit to Cuba — blasted the US leader for trying to meddle in his country’s affairs.
In a letter titled “Brother Obama” and published Monday in El Granma, the official state newspaper of the Cuban Communist Party, the island nation’s former president scoffed, “We don’t need the empire to give us any presents.”
Castro, 89, ripped Obama for assuming that Cuba trusted him when he said the US government is done trying to overthrow the Communist regime and that this will help the island move more quickly toward economic and political reform. “My modest suggestion is that he reflects and doesn’t try to develop theories about Cuban politics,” Castro said.
“No one should pretend that the people of this noble and selfless country will renounce its glory and its rights,” he wrote. “We are capable of producing the food and material wealth that we need with the work and intelligence of our people.”

He even took a swipe at Obama’s relative youth. “Native populations do not exist at all in the minds of Obama. Nor does he say that racial discrimination was swept away by the Revolution; that retirement and salary of all Cubans were enacted by this before Mr. Barack Obama was 10 years old,” Castro said.
Obama had said in a speech that “it is time, now, for us to leave the past behind,” but the diehard Commie retorted, “I imagine that any one of us ran the risk of having a heart attack on hearing these words from the President of the United States.”
Castro ceded power to his brother Raul in 2008. Obama met with Raul last week, the first time a US president had been to Cuba since 1928. The newspaper that published Fidel’s letter takes its name from the yacht that Fidel and dozens of other rebels used to travel from Mexico to Cuba to launch their revolution in 1956.

I see Castro’s point, monster that he is: “You, Barack Obama, seek to come here and tell me how it’s done?! You’re a piker.” And piker Obama is. Castro is a real gangster, and his Marxist theory is not needed now. Fidel Castro overtook the Island Nation of Cuba with less than 50 men. Vladimir Lenin took over Russia with less than 50 men. George Soros wrecked the Malaysian currency with less than 50 men. But Obama overplayed his hand. The little weasel man who went to Africa and told the people they couldn’t have cars and air conditioning because… Read more »

Who cares? The only people for whom Fidel’s opinion may matter would be socialism-loving liberals, but I doubt that they, being low-information voters, even know this.

As I have said many times; only the ignorant, traitorous liars, or cowards, refer to obama as president.


You have to believe that BO would love to treat those here that disagree with his policies the same way Castro deals with his people there. He hates Americans that much, except when he expects us to pay for his high life style.
