Defending Obama

Some conservatives expressed outrage that Obama shook hands with Cuban dictator Raul Castro before the memorial service for Nelson Mandela. They are misguided in characterizing that simple act of civility as a formal recognition of, or at least giving legitimacy to, the oppressive Castro regime.

As a White House official said, “Above all else, today is about honoring Nelson Mandela, and that was the President’s singular focus at the memorial service.”

    And he’s on the way back, for crying out loud! Too bad we couldn’t find a way to keep him there for a few years. Disgusting beyond belief.

    The man has zero class and is an embarrassment to the country.

    Is it just me, or does it look like he’s practically bowing to Castro? Bowing and selfies, how disgusting.

    GOD, You’ve disappointed me AGAIN. What the hell is it? A guy CAN’T get a meteor when he NEEDS one ????!!!! As to the BECS’ selfies, no surprise. His WHOLE day was spent on HIMSELF. Proving to the REST of the world what a self-absorbed narcissistic prick he TRULY is.

    Yea, maybe not so much. Good one. Maybe they even found some choom in all that celebration? Simply, the imposter found a captive audience for another one of his lectures. I imagine it was a segregated trip on AF-1.

    Yeah, I wouldn’t want moochie in any of my selfies either.
