Oh boy, here comes the commie Muslim wealth confiscating death panels.
 
2013-12-10 10:40:36 AM  
Don't worry: I have it on good authority the President got over on Raul:

So how long until the teabaggers claim Mandela would have been outraged at such a thing? They do have a habit of putting right wing derp in dead politicians mouths.

I'm pretty sure that's just an ice cream truck. I could be mistaken, they do sound similar coming down the street.

They make it sound like that so they can attract children and gay-indoctrinate them.

Mandela, Obama, Castro. They are all Communists. Castro just hasn't won the Nobel Prize.

Yet.

Oh this should be good.
 
2013-12-10 10:54:32 AM  
So, Obama's had at least some sort of contact with the presidents of Iran and Cuba?

What a foreign policy lightweight.

I'm not caring until I see the BENGHAZI connection.

I thought they were going with 'commie terrorist' instead of 'at the right hand of Saint Ronny' for Mandela.
 
2013-12-10 11:08:20 AM  
They were catching up on old times.  After all, Raul taught at the Madrassa that Obama went to.
 
2013-12-10 11:09:59 AM  
They were merely exchanging long protein strings. If you can think of a simpler way, I'd like to hear it.

Earlier this morning, I made the mistake of reading some of the yahell comments on this.

I'll have to start drinking early today.

MLK would have been the first Republican to stand up against this Kenyan Muslim Usurper!  The GOP, as we remember were the only ones in the USA trying to fight that liberal Apartheid government.
 
2013-12-10 11:21:41 AM  
Hey right wing nuts.  The majority of the people on this planet don't like the US, not because of our freedoms, but because it's full of arrogant ass holes who think they are better than the rest of the world and get to decide who and what they want to blow up next with no thoughts about the consequences of their actions.  Believe it or not a simple hand shake with someone who is widely regarded as an "enemy" the the United States can go a long way to showing the world that we are willing to work with others to make the world a better place and that we at least respect other countries.

Prefer my presidents to biatch slap countries we don't like, Reagan would do it. I never could figure out why he kept high fiving Iran. It was odd.

Just wait until the derp crowd dissects Obamas speech / eulogy .  I am sure they wont mention GWB was one of the first on his feet applauding afterwards, while Michelle just SAT THERE !!!

CNN cast sucked, BBC = great jorb.

This is, specifically and literally, the exact thing that they object to so strongly.

Seriously.
 
2013-12-10 11:28:06 AM  
Remember, Reagan sold arms to Iran.

Obama greeted someone at Nelson Mandela's funeral.

Obviously, history's greatest monster.

How can you expect anyone to remember that? Reagan himself forgot all about it.

To:  Innovative
Looks like he bowed too.

To:  stevie_d_64
I think he is bowing out of respect... goes to show you whom does Obama respect.

To:  Innovative
And BOWS!

To:  GOP Poet
And he is bowing to Catro too...

To:  Innovative
Would Obama have done the same for Lenin, or Stalin, or Hitler?
The Castro's are of the same ilk. Murderous thugs. But the POTUS gives him bow and hearty handshake and converses with him like he's an old friend, or comrade. Repulsive and disgusting, but we know Obama too well after six years, eh>

To:  Innovative
Good Morning America was in ecstasy over it.
Sickening.

To:  Innovative
I wonder if they went out of his way to do this to stick it to Ted Cruz?

To:  PghBaldy
Obama did it because he views Castro as a "comrade"- he has more in common with Castro than with people in the US...
And of course Bill Clinton shook hands with Fidel Castro...
"President Bill Clinton was the first to do so in 2000 after a lunch during a United Nations summit in New York, when he shook hands with Mr Castro's brother, Fidel."

To:  Innovative
Birds of a feather.

To:  Innovative
Which brings to mind...
Does Barrack Hussien Obama even respect himself???
I mean really, think about it...We know he has an extreme narcassistic (sp?) condition...Most of the people around him are "yes" men and women...He has a wife and a marraige that is more than likely a love-less relationship now...
The only female that I know about, that has him by the cajones is that communist POS Valarie Jarrett...
If he truely respected this country and its citizens, would we be having this conversation???

To:  steelhead_trout
The bastard (acknowledged) son of a Cuban planter aristocrat- who went to the finest Jesuit schools and became a lawyer from Havana U., creates a prison island plantation of his own communistic slaves, rips off all the money from the seized private property of legal Cubans and US companies. Takes the money and sends it to Bank of Cuba in the City of London, and to Swiss banks. An international terrorist psycho and friend of Jimmah Cahtah. A cocaine smuggler/enabler to this day.
He shakes hand with anti-communist Quaker Richard Nixon, whom the left ran out of office because their book of whores was discovered in the Watergate breakin (done without Nixon's knowledge by his psycho loyalists)- and one of the whores was John Dean's wife. This is the truth. And the whole thing could have been avoided, because there was NO way McGovern was ever going to win the presidency.
But, it is important to know the provenance of all these connections. The Castros are a criminal conspiracy- the usual S. American dictator ripoffs. All in the style of Patrice Lumumba, Mugabe.... and NELSON MANDELA and his charming ex-wife Winnie"Necklace" Mandela.
You can't make this stuff up. And the millions who have suffered and died for freedom- you can't make that up either. Pray for their Peace wherever they now lie.

To:  Innovative
Did 0bama bow too?
Well, it's not that unusual...
5.56mm

To:  Innovative
That's the ole Bowbama! Bowing to the communist!


To:  Innovative
Raul think: "This guys an idiot, and I already own him without firing a shot"

To:  Innovative
Obozo: "I only hope that my pres__dency is as successful as your brother's reign (of terror)"

To:  Innovative
Looks like he is bending over in another bow to me. Kissing the ring.

2013-12-10 11:33:59 AM  
You know what?

Good.

The cold war has been over for almost 20 years.  It's about time we normalized relations with Cuba.  I'm not saying the Cuban government are saints or anything, but keeping them ostracized from the world community helps nobody.  The only reason the embargo has persisted this long is because of a vocal minority that happens to be concentrated in a swing state.

It's important to point out why Cuba, currently, really is our enemy.

It's not because they're Communists. We're quite friendly with Communist China.

It's not because they used to support our enemies, the Soviets. We're dealing quite well with India which also had close ties to the Soviets.

It's not because of their treatment of their people. We're close allies with Saudi Arabia which has an awful human rights record.

The reason we can't open relations with Cuba is because...

Okay, I can't think of a good reason but Reagan hated them so fark Cuba forever and ever. Diplomacy is for pussies since it works without spending billions or killing thousands.

It will piss off a single segment of voters in a key swing state.

Honestly, that is the only reason.
