Obama, Castro, Reagan And Crackerjacks

If Dim Won thinks Castro’s Cuba is somehow the avatar of democracy, I want none of it, from, Investor’s Business Daily [1]:

In his Tuesday address to the Cuban people, Obama declared that the communist takeover that led to the Castros’ 57-year dictatorship was a “liberation movement,” same as America’s 1776 revolution. Obama’s well-known for his false equivalencies, but this one stands out for its idiocy.

“Here’s my message to the Cuban government and the Cuban people,” Obama said.”The ideals that are the starting point for every revolution, America’s revolution, Cuba’s revolution, the liberation movements around the world, these ideals find their truest expression, I believe, in democracy.”

What did Ronald Reagan have to say about democracy and Castro’s Cuba, video:

The United States went from thirteen ragtag colonies to a world power in less than a century.   In contrast a bit over half century of Castro’s reign of terror has  made Cuba into a basket case.   Castro is looking for a new sugar daddy.   There isn’t a sugar daddy big enough to support a socialist peoples’ paradise the size of the United States.
