Well of course received a warm welcome in South Africa dear, it was a homecoming of sorts for a fellow Continental!

But seriously folks, it's a handshake! And it's been done before (Clinton with Fidel) no less! Hardly shocking.......

What was Obama supposed to do? Sock him in the mouth and holler,"Let my people go"? It was a multi=National gathering of leaders,where the service was to honor SA'a National hero. A certain matter of decorum IS expected. We can argue with Cuba the OTHER 364 days of the year. A cordial por-forma handshake at a solemn occasion doesn't mean Princess cruises to Havana next week.....

While there are similarities in their ideologies I don't see Obama so stupid as to outright approve of Cuba's present policies. Forget the handshake. We have 3 more years of Obama inflicted problems here at home to deal with rather than worry about a 3 second handshake in another country.....

Obama is a communist who have relations with the Cuban communist dictator behind our backs similar to his secret relations with the iranian regime which means that the hand shake is between two 'communist' friends with the same agenda. Millennium Americans are not bunch of fools as they realized that the Obamacare cost them a fortune and changing their way of life only to get nothing healthy for their money when hospitals and doctors are boycotting and escaping the failed Obamacare scam of the lying Obama socialistic agenda. Clearly, Obama and the liberal Democrats are ready to sacrifice the lives of millions of American and stranding them with no health care whatsoever as doctors are paid nickel and dimes and Hospital getting much less than they spend on every patient rather than a fixed sum of money that will not cure the patient. The American people were scammed by Obama and when it is all about their health, freedom and money in their pockets rather than ion the Obama deep pockets they do care a lot. Obama lies will bring to the historic fall of the socialistic liberal and Jihadist agenda of the new world order that the deceitful dictator in chief Obama push through the throat of the American fools while destroying the health system of the American people of decades.

Actually Obama broke protocol by not planting a wet one on Castro's lips, the way Bush did with the Prince of Saudi Arabia. Whatever happened to good manners? Sheesh!
