Castro Congratulates Obama
HAVANA: President Obama earned kudos from Comrade Fidel Castro on Thursday for passage of the Healthcare bill. Castro is understandably excited for America to follow Cuba’s model of excellence in health care:
Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro on Thursday declared passage of American health care reform “a miracle” and a major victory for Obama’s presidency, but couldn’t help chide the United States for taking so long to enact what communist Cuba achieved decades ago.
“We consider health reform to have been an important battle and a success of his (Obama’s) government,” Castro wrote in an essay published in state media, adding that it would strengthen the president’s hand against lobbyists and “mercenaries.”
But the Cuban leader also used the lengthy piece to criticize the American president for his lack of leadership on climate change and immigration reform, and for his decision to send more troops to Afghanistan, among many other things…
“It is really incredible that 234 years after the Declaration of Independence … the government of that country has approved medical attention for the majority of its citizens, something that Cuba was able to do half a century ago,” Castro wrote. AP
Don’t worry, Fidel. Climate change and immigration legislation is right around the corner. We know how important those issues are to you revolutionaries.
Look for more accolades to come from other dictators and thugocrats as Obama and the Progressives suspend the Constitution and establish their totalitarian government here in the USSA.
