Fidel and Obama: Perfect Together

You know you’re on the side of political wisdom and integrity when you’ve got Fidel Castro’s approval. This week’s latest words-of-Obama-adulation-by-infamous-America-haters came after the president’s speech on climate change during Tuesday’s United Nations summit:

The president of the United States admitted that the developed nations have caused much of the damage and must assume responsibility for that. It was doubtless a brave gesture.

It would also be just to recognize that no other president of the United States would have had the courage to say what he said.

I suppose we should all be comforted.

And it’s not just Castro with whom our great leader has managed to find favor. He also seems to have won the heart of the likes of Fidel’s brother, Raul Castro, and the beloved Hugo Chavez. I recently came across a great article entitled, “Dictators: In Love with Obama.” Here’s a excerpt:

Does anyone find it odd that so many evil dictators are head-over-heels in love with President Obama? Take Cuba’s Fidel Castro, for instance. From the AP, back in April…

Rep. Laura Richardson, California Democrat, who also met Fidel Castro with Rep. Bobby L. Rush, Illinois Democrat, said he “looked directly into our eyes” and asked how Cuba could help Mr. Obama in his efforts to change the course of U.S. foreign policy. She said she had the impression that Fidel Castro, 82, wants to see changes in U.S.-Cuba relations in his lifetime.

And how can we forget about Barry’s BFF, Hugo Chavez?! From the New York Post, also in April…

Left-wing wacko Chavez gave Obama his personal stamp of approval Saturday, along with one of his favorite reads — a detailed look at Latin American politics through 500 years of what it says was US exploitation. Chavez, a strident critic of George W. Bush’s administration, said his meeting with Obama at the Summit of the Americas in Trinidad and Tobago was “extraordinary.”

“I feel great optimism and the best of good will to advance. We have started off on the right foot,” Chavez said in a statement. He said it was time for “a true start of a new history, for there to be balance, that there’s an end to the mechanisms of domination.” Venezuela’s strongman was so smitten with Obama, he took to the TV airwaves to tell his countrymen he didn’t “have the slightest doubt” relations would improve with Washington under Bush’s successor. Obama played coy. He politely thanked Chavez for his gift — a Spanish-language edition of Eduardo Galeano’s “Open Veins of Latin America” — and later joked: “I thought it was one of Chavez’s books. I was going to give him one of mine.”

Chavez showed the love on his government website, rushing to post a photo of Obama with his hand on Chavez’s shoulder.

Really, it’s precious. And it gives me hope that perhaps some day, we’ll see our President frolicking through the meadows with Kim Jong Il. After all, he can’t possibly let President Clinton show him up.
