Yeah, I know as I post this it’s late February, not March. But this poll question has a certain shelf life so I thought I’d get a little head start (especially since I have posted or done polls in years…).
Will Fidel Castro die before Obama can visit him?
Fidel's already dead, Obama's just going to take "Weekend at Bernie's" selfies with the corpse (60%, 3 Votes)
Alberto at Babalu Blog notes the Myers–the Cuban spies arrested last week–are your typical spoiled, privileged traitorous American-hating leftists.
So that leaves me with a thought, or rather, a question. Given the type of people Obama is associated with, how many future Cuban (or other country) spies are coming to work for his administration now?
Walter Kendall Myers, a 72-year-old former State Department worker and his 71-year-old wife Gwendolyn were arrested today for spying for Cuba for about 30 years. They were “true believers” who even met in person with Fidel Castro in the 1990’s. America-hating leftists doing what they do best. Reportedly, Myers was privy to a bunch of sensitive and even classified info on Cuba while he worked at Foggy Bottom.
Gateway Pundit has a lot more, including news that a Walter Myers from a DC suburb donated to the Obama campaign.
Look up the phrase “useful idiots” and I’m sure you’ll find these tools’ photos. No doubt the left will begin its usual talking points when Castro apologists are caught spying: deny it vehemently at first and when the evidence becomes too overwhelming to deny, shift and claim they were justified in their spying and/or the U.S. does it too so therefore Cuba has the “right” to spy on us. Too bad we don’t do to spies in this country what countries like, oh, Cuba do to spies when they catch them.
Cuba was kicked out of the OAS in the early ’60’s for being a dictatorial regime. More than 40 years later, the “dictatorial regime” part hasn’t changed in Cuba but that didn’t stop the useless idiots in the OAS from opening the door to their return.
Naturally, the Obummer regime administration didn’t put up too much of a fight:
The decision was made by consensus, meaning the United States accepted it, though Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton had lobbied personally for requiring Cuba to make democratic reforms and improve respect for human rights.
“Affirming that the president of Cuba is ready to discuss any topic with the president of the United States expresses that he’s not afraid to broach any subject,” Fidel Castro wrote of his 77-year-old brother, who succeeded him 14 months ago.
“It’s a sign of bravery and confidence in the principles of the revolution,” he said.
“Nobody should assume that he was talking about pardoning those sentenced in March 2003 and sending all of them to the United States, if the country were willing to liberate the five Cuban anti-terrorist heroes,” Castro wrote.
Something, ahem, “interesting” happened during that handshake which is not visible in the photo. But you can see it in this photo:
The book, titled “Las Venas Abiertas de America Latina” (The Open Veins of Latin America), was written by a hardcore leftist from Uruguay named Eduardo Galeano. No doubt Obama will rush out to find an English-language version or, if none exists, have someone translate it for him.
Somebody please wake me up in November of 2012. Please.
