Castro calls Obama “the best snake charmer that has ever existed”

by editor on November 28, 2010

Why that Fidel Castro is starting to sound like a Republican in his old age. And you know what that means – President Obama won’t give him one of those super secret South American socialist handshakes next time they get together.

One of the three amigos is missing

AFP has details of the socialist spat:

In an article published in response to the Western alliance’s weekend summit in Portugal, the former Cuban leader called NATO an “aggressive institution” that ignored “billions of persons suffering from poverty, underdevelopment, shortages of food, housing, health, education and jobs.”

Castro called NATO “a bird of prey sitting in the lap of the Yankee empire,” that was used by the United States to wage ”the genocidal Afghanistan war.”
“Obama already admitted that his promise to withdraw US soldiers from Afghanistan may be postponed … After the Nobel Prize, we would have to award him with the prize for ‘the best snake charmer’ that has ever existed.”

Can’t we all just get along? We’re confident that this is simply one of those unfortunate diplomatic mistranslations and what Castro really said was, “Obama is the best and a snake and a charmer.” Surely it was meant as a compliment.

C’mon, you two, kiss and make up. Let’s see that super secret South American socialist handshake. Awwww, that’s more like it.

Fidel sez: “…persons suffering from poverty, underdevelopment, shortages of food, housing, health, education and jobs.”

Spot on Fidel! You describe Cuba perfectly. Fiftyone years of comunist misrule has left Cuba a basket case. The rest of what the Maximum Leader says is standard Leninist boilerplate, a nod to the Bill Ayers crowd. Too, if there’s an international snake charmer, it’s Fidel; he’s mesmerized the American and European Left for half a century.

message to cASStro:

Dear fidel,
You obviously don’t quite realize that while Cuba is a marxist nation, most of the rest of the world is not, and therefore it is not the duty, or the job of the US to feed the starving in your country, or any other leftist-run scumbag dictatorship .
Had you not cut your countrymen off from the rest of the world, you may have had a better life for you and the Cubanos-but alas, you chose the USSR over freedom, and thus backed a broke horse. Broke ,and broke that is.
Now-eff off and die already.
Your friend,
matt

Poor Obama. He probably feels like a 5 yr old would if Buzz Lightyear personally called to say “you suck and there’s no Santa”.

I never thought I would see the day I would agree with Castro on anything.

When Obomie takes his Cialis, he can charm the snake for up to 3 hours. (any more that that, and he must call his doctor…)

The comments to this thread are excellent! But always be aware that Obomie is friends with Bill Ayers, and has read Saul Ulinsky.

Typical… He is angry that others are not taking care of the poor and the disenfranchise… yet he doesn’t take care of the poor and the disenfranchise in his own country. Hypocrite. Yeah yeah so he is calling out Obama but he has no moral aptitude to do so in the first place.
