Obama and Biden Will Not Attend Castro’s Funeral

Obama and Biden Will Not Attend Castro’s Funeral

Good.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest has announced that President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will not attend the funeral for Cuba’s oppressive murderous dictator Fidel Castro, who died this weekend:

In an effort to halt a series of questions about the potential attendance of various individual government officials, Earnest would confirm only that the president and vice president would not travel to Cuba for the funeral service. He pointedly refused to rule out that Secretary of State John Kerry would attend, but would not confirm his attendance, either.

“I don’t want to lead you to conclude that the secretary of state is considering attending,” Earnest said. “What I want to lead you to conclude is that we’ll have an announcement as soon as we can get one out about a delegation, if there is one.”

Politicians have pushed the Obama administration not to send anyone:

Obama received massive criticism for his statement after Castro croaked:

President Obama issued a statement Saturday morning: “Today, we offer condolences to Fidel Castro’s family, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Cuban people.”

“For nearly six decades, the relationship between the United States and Cuba was marked by discord and profound political disagreements,” Obama said. “During my presidency, we have worked hard to put the past behind us, pursuing a future in which the relationship between our two countries is defined not by our differences but by the many things that we share as neighbors and friends — bonds of family, culture, commerce, and common humanity.”

Kerry sent condolences to the Cuban people for losing their leader, even though that man spent six decades oppressing and murdering Cuban people without a trial. I could list all of the horrendous actions Castro took against the Cuban people, but then I’d write a novel.

I’m guessing it’s because of a previously scheduled golf game, not because it’s the right thing to do.

Were I POTUS, I would not go, either.

Whizzing on Fidel’s grave could cause an international incident…

    It may have been due to the Cuban officials more afraid of Obama throwing himself on the casket, sobbing, “Father, oh father, why have you forsaken me?”.

I wonder if the White House has a bust of Fidel.

Parked right where Winston used to be.

I bet Justin Trudeau is going

Mass abortions committed on record, that cannot be displaced, are still a left-wing taboo.

Likely couldn’t get a tee time.

Obama would love to go but is protecting what little political capital he retains as a lame duck president, i.e., it will cost him less to not attend. A large number of southern Floridians, formerly of Cuba, will not forget about Democrats currently extollinging Castro’s life and deeds.

Immediately after Trump takes office, Obama will fly to Cuba and crawl on his knees from the airport to wherever Fidel’s mausoleum is, as an act of pilgrimage.

This could work out to Obama’s advantage.
Their leader just died, and Obama is going to have a lot of time on his hands. He already has a pen and a phone.
Maybe he takes his visionary leadership 90 miles south of Florida . . . . I smell a second Nobel prize on the horizon

    Nah, I think Obama is going to try and get the UN dictator position. All “good” narcissists would want to be “ruler of the world”. Besides, arugula may be hard to get in Cuber.

    No. Obama is of African heritage. Cubans of African descent have long complained of discrimination by those of Spanish descent. Seems racism isn’t just a “White” problem. The same thing is seen in Mexico, where those of fairer skin, blonder hair, and bluer eyes are preferred on the television.

    In the same vein, Muhammad was Arab. He despised those dark people of African origins, and had bad things to say about them. Discrimination against the Africans is justified in the Islamic writings. The Arabs have a history of discrimination against Sub-saharan Africans. When those millions were going to slavery working agriculture in the Americas, more were going to Arabia for the sex slave trade, women and young boys. Slave caravans would lose up to 90% of their slaves. The boys were castrated, the women murdered when they grew old and unsightly, and pregnancies were dispatched with an efficacy which would have made Hilary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Margaret Sanger proud.

They should send Bernie Sanders. Maybe he would just stay.

Suppose they had a funeral and nobody came?

It will be interesting to note who DOES show up.
