Cozying Up To Communist Dictators - Obama In South Africa
If you have a strong stomach, watch the above clip of our president pressing the flesh, bowing and sharing an intimate moment with Cuba's communist dictator Raul Castro, while CNN's Christiane Amanpour has an orgasm on live television.I'm certain the thousands of political prisoners in Raul's gulags on the Isle of Pines and elsewhere would have a different view of this if they were allowed to speak.
Our president (at a cost to the American taxpayer of a cool $5 million) wasn't done yet. Then came his speech eulogizing Mandela, whom he compared to Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr. and - wait for it - Abraham Lincoln.
For those of you interested in exactly why these comparisons are so ludicrous, I suggest you read this to get an honest look at Nelson Mandela's real legacy.
The short version, of course is that Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. were apostles of non-violence, while Nelson Mandela was definitely not. Nor were either of them communists or the leaders of terrorist groups. And the comparison to Lincoln is an outright insult to anyone who knows anything about his life and character. I suppose we can write that off as yet another expression of both our president's ignorance of history and his general feeling toward our country.
Chavez, Castro, Rouhani, Mahmoud Abbas, Mohammed Morsi...the list goes on, and you have to wonder about our president's dictator fetish.
If he were a private citizen, that of course would be his business, but as the representative of the American people, it's simply disgraceful.
