Fidel Castro Slaps Down Presidnet Obama

Two days ago we discussed the reality that even Obama’s usual allies and supporters in the mainstream media had serious problems with him going to a meaningless baseball game, learning to dance the tango, and playing a round of golf while the carnage in Brussels as a result of the terrorist attacks was still being cleaned up, wounded being treated, and the memories were fresh in everyone’s mind:

Yesterday, we discussed the reality that the Obama presidency had failed on so many levels, especially foreign policy, that Forbes magazine saw fit to NOT include the President in its 2016 list of the world’s most influential leaders:

But the foreign policy failures and insults do not stop with these two posts and their examples. While in Cuba on his recent legacy building ego trip, the President did not meet with Fidel Castro, the long time leader of the Cuban nation. The administration spokesperson said that the President would have meet with Fidel if the Cuban leader felt up to it but that meeting never happened, Obama met only with Fidel’s younger brother and current leader of Cuba, Raul.

While the administration tried to paint a very positive, rosy picture on the trip to Cuba, again trying to use the trip as a historical benchmark to burnish Obama’s legacy, Fidel issued a letter shortly after the trip which surely is going to take the President down a notch or two and which really embarrassed him. In street jargon, I would call Fidel’s long epistle a basic “f-you” reproach to President Obama which tried its best, and probably succeeded, in taking a lot of shine off of the President’s ego boost over the trip.

Highlights of the letter include the following:

Castro: “We don’t need the empire (United States) to give us any presents.” In other words, we do not need the United States, we do not need the Obama administration, we do not need Obama’s visits, we are getting along quite fine on our own. Thus, this is a country with a fraction of the wealth, economy, and might of the United States and Castro just gave the President a big slap down.

Castro: Obama’s comments on the trip while in Cuba were “honey-coated” and that Cubans “ran the the risk of having a heart attack on hearing these words from the president of the United States.” In other words, you comments mean nothing to us or me, they are an insult to our intelligence.

Castro: "My modest suggestion is that he [Obama]reflect and doesn’t try to develop theories about Cuban politics.” In other words, mind your own business, you have no idea what we are all about despite your rhetoric.

Castro: “No one should be under the illusion that the people of this noble and selfless country will renounce its glory and its rights, and the spiritual wealth that is has gained with the development of education, science and culture.” In other words, we are good, we do not need your pity and the United States to be a wealthy nation and people, even if that wealth is spiritual and not materialistic.

Castro: “We are capable of producing the food and material wealth that we need with the work and intelligence of our people.” This is another f-you moment in the letter, we do not need you as much as you need Cuba….for your legacy.

Other highlights or lowlights of Castro’s letter included:
  • He went over Obama’s speech line by line, doing an analysis and one sided discussion and critique of Obama’s comments as if he was Obama’s English teacher.
  • He blasted Obama for seemingly ignoring the demise of native peoples in the US and Cuba, whatever that means.
  • He accused the U.S. of helping South Africa get nuclear weapons which I am pretty sure is a false belief.
So, we now have Fidel Castro taking a slap at Obama’s foreign policy. Putin more or less laughs at any of Obama’s foreign policy initiatives since it allowed him to become a world wide factor again both in Europe and the Middle East. The idiot kid running North Korea continues to boast that he will blow up the United States with its nuclear weapons. ISIS has to be laughing at the Obama plan to destroy them since it is well over a year since the administration went after the terror group but it continues to extend its reach and power.

Such a legacy, somehow Obama found a way to make the leader of the strongest country in the world to be irrelevant. Sad.
