Castro bashes US but absolves Obama


The incredible "Panama show" concluded with Cuban dictator Raul Castro's speech:
Castro, in a meandering, nearly hour-long speech to the summit, ran through an exhaustive history of perceived Cuban grievances against the U.S. dating back more than a century -- a vivid display of how raw passions remain over American attempts to undermine Cuba's government.
Then, in an abrupt about face, he apologized for letting his emotions get the best of him.
He said many U.S. presidents were at fault for that troubled history -- but that Obama isn't one of them.
"I have told President Obama that I get very emotional talking about the revolution," Castro said through a translator, noting that Obama wasn't even born when the U.S. began sanctioning the island nation.
"I apologize to him because President Obama had no responsibility for this."
Castro neglected to mention, nor did President Obama remind him, that Cuba is a one-party state, without a free press or elections, and has required a foreign subsidy for much of the so-called revolution.

Castro also failed to mention, nor did President Obama remind him, that Cuba has been harboring JoAnne Chesimard, the killer of New Jersey state trooper, and confiscated the assets of U.S. citizens without compensation. (By the way, those assets are an estimated $7 billion.)

It makes you wonder: Who stood up for the U.S. at this meeting? 

Did anyone defend the U.S. and its citizens?  

Maybe President Obama should have reminded the conference that U.S. nationals spend billions of dollars visiting their beaches, buying their vegetables and other stuffs.

I guess that President Obama was in no mood to remind Raul Castro of anything. After all, why stand up for the U.S. when a corrupt dictator is ranting one lie after another?

Why create a diplomatic scene and upset the dictator? After all, isn't Obama just one of the boys? 

In all, President Obama was pathetic. I understand the handshake but not allowing so many to take cheap shots at the U.S. At the same time, we're used to it by now.

Hillary Clinton’s real message: “Vote for me I’m a woman”

Hillary Clinton has finally made her announcement.   She is running for president in 2016!   Like in 2007, she released a video and promised to get out and meet voters.
Frankly, she is short on issues.      She has 3 problems:
1) She’s a phony, as I mentioned in my earlier post;
2) She is author of our foreign policy mess.  Where is the world better off today after her tenure as Secretary of State?
and,
3) The US economy is not anything to write about.
So what will her campaign be about?  It won’t be about issues or any vision.
Hillary Clinton will play “the woman card” and call on voters to elect a woman president.
“”I think our nation is at a pivotal time, so anyone who wants to be president or commander-in-chief needs a track record of leadership and accomplishment and trustworthiness. Hillary Clinton is a highly intelligent woman, hardworking, she’s dedicated her life to public service. But unfortunately, she does not have a track record of accomplishment or transparency,” Fiorina says.
“After the famous reset with Russia, Russia is now a more powerful adversary than it was when she became secretary of state. Our relationship with Israel has deteriorated dramatically. The Middle East is in flames. And of course she has not been transparent. She told us for weeks after the purposeful terrorist attack in Benghazi that this was the result of an American video in a demonstration gone bad, and now we learn that she has used a private email server and a private email system for the most sensitive of communications while she was secretary of state.
“She doesn’t have a track record of leadership or trustworthiness. She’s not the woman for the White House.”
Let’s hope that many women, and men, agree with Carly Fiorina!
