The right-wing hysteria over a simple handshake was HILARIOUS. Just as was the raving and jabbering over Obama bowing politely to Saudi royals. This from a bunch of nitwits who sat there complacently while Bush did everything but french kiss them publicly when they visited Washington.

I salute Mr. Obama for shaking Raul Castro's hand. Let's hope it gets rid of the RIDICULOUS blockade of all things Cuban and opens up relations between our two countries - to the benefit of the Cuban people.

To hell with the ravings of the Right...

I don't know why they are making a big deal about this. Obama thought Castro was the guy parking cars and Castro thought Obama was a waiter.

Dear Fascist friend,
Why can't these people be more like us?

We love to scream less government while sucking the USA dry.

Good thing Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio as does the Tea party refuse to acknowledge the insane amount of tax money we suck up YEARLY in FAILED Cuba libre funds.

Thank God that FAUX wont touch us.

"Ex-Bush aide imprisoned for stealing Cuba democracy funds"

A federal judge threw the book today at Felipe Sixto, the former White House aide who was convicted of stealing $579,000 that was supposed to be used to foster democracy in Cuba.

The Associated Press reports that Sixto apologized for diverting the money when he was working for the Center for a Free Cuba, saying he had ``wanted to provide a lifestyle for my family I could not afford.??

The money that Sixto used for his own purposes was supposed to support democratic movements within Cuba, to be funneled through the Center, a Washington-based human rights group. Sixto acknowledged over-charging the Center while buying equipment with federal funds.

Teabaggers only mention Jesus when they want to appear sanctimonious.
They worship Mamon.
And genuflect before the altar of Right WIng Radicalism.

No, Bill Clinton did!

Former President Bill Clinton tried to get former senator Ted Kennedy to endorse Hillary Clinton for president in the 2008 election by describing Barack Obama this way: "A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags."

This anecdote is revealed in a New Yorker article on the relationship between Bill Clinton and Obama:

Tim Russert told me that, according to his sources, Bill Clinton, in an effort to secure an endorsement for Hillary from Ted Kennedy, said to Kennedy,A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags.

Clinton is giving a keynote address at the Democratic convention this week in Charlotte, North Carolina.

As do you, my friend, as do you!
Your cult is agnosticism and atheism, both come from satanism, he preaches that God and demons do not exist. You follow satan's teachings very well.
But I agree with you. Demons do exist. They are known as buybull thumping, frightwing , teabag troglodytes.
