Is the democrat party in cahoots with Fidel? This comes straight from the Left/democrat talking points. Truly incredible - our enemies use the rhetoric of the democrats to make their arguments.

He also says we are nothing but racists and will not vote for Obama.
Typical repug....put out the lie(shamelessly) and hopes someone as stupid as they are bites.....slapped down again...

Besides him creating a country that didn't want to suckle our teat, why exactly is Fidel evil again?

It doesn't mean I support communism, but what exactly has he done that is so evil?

If it hadnt been for the American-backed string of dictators in 20th Century Cuba and the standard rape of Cuba by Spain, the US and other countries since about the 1500s there wouldnt have been a Fidel or a Cuban revolution. If the US had protected Cuba honestly and lightly, in a healthy, fair way it would be independent today and capitalist. The Russians happened to be there to encourage the ideological spark and then gave the support. That's all. Our own greedy fault.

Where does it say that he ENDORSES Obama?
The thread states endorses.
It seems he is just giving his opinion, and all world leaders have an opinion on the US elections.

I see where he says McCain is old and if he dies you have an inexperienced VP.

I see no endorsements.

Once it gets much beyond "CREATE FEAR among the voters", Republican thought and strategy is sadly lacking, unless you're willing to accept "borrow & spend" as a viable long term policy.

I see no endorsements.

I see a "backhanded" or "implied" endorsement by omission.
Can't you?
If I asked a question..Which do you prefer, daytime or nighttime? and your answer was...I cant see very well in the dark.... There's an implied preference toward daylight, no?

Haven't you noticed that some Republicans use equally vile words? I'm not a fan of either.
