That’s what Hugo said!

I’ve gotten several comments on this dear old blog from people who have known and fled Communist regimes, who are terrified of Obama being elected for fear of more of the same. 

Now, Cuban voters in Miami are concerned about Obama as well. 

McCain was in Little Havana yesterday, where he encountered a great number of Cuban-Americans who see Obama “as a combination of Fidel Castro, Hugo Chávez and any other Latin leader who ever nationalised a business” (above link).  One man had this to say:

“Comunismo,” said Michael Garcia, 30, the son of Cuban émigrés who works at his family-owned accounting business.  “I shouldn’t have to pay more taxes because I work harder than other people,” he said. “The things that Obama say scare me because that’s everything that Fidel said. These things are associated in my mind with going down the path to communism.”

What would Jesus do?  For Obama, it’s apparently more like “What would Fidel do?”

And how could we forget the man who exposed the ugly truth of Obama’s socialistic plans to the nation, Joe the plumber.  Hard-working Americans love this guy because he asked Obama a good question (not “What’s your favorite cereal?”) and he’s similarly regarded by the Cuban-Americans in Miami, who refer to him as “Pepe el plomero.” 

Of course, none of this should come as any surprise to those of you who don’t rely solely on CNN for your “hard-hitting” news.  (Or the LA Times, for that matter.)  And it doesn’t really help Obama much when Hugo Chavez himself is stumping for him.  (Along with endorsements from Hamas and Ahmadinejad, among other savory characters.)

Under the “double standards” headline, can you imagine for a moment the nonstop media hayday if such characters were stumping for McCain/Palin? 

As for the ultimate in media bias, how about this Rashid Khalidi tape that the LA Times refuses to release?  You know, as long as they don’t, they’re inviting everyone to speculate the worst.  What we do know is that Barack Obama is toasting Khalidi, a former PLO operative, at some big, swanky Anti-Semitic dinner party.  Others in attendance?  Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.   

We the people have the right to know this stuff.  Again, imagine if there was some incriminating video of McCain or Palin toasting some Nazi sympathizer, and some newspaper refused to release it. 

Let’s pretend for a moment that there’s nothing incriminating on the video (aside from the fact that Obama was THERE and didn’t LEAVE once he knew what it was about, presuming he did not going in.)  So, what’s with the holding back?  Nothing wrong?  Everybody’s satisfied.  Let this be further illustration that we don’t know the HALF of the character of the real Barack Obama. 

Did I watch the big prime-time Obama infomercial last night?  No, I did not.  I had more pressing, enjoyable tasks to complete, like cleaning the space between the toilet tank and the seat, and spit-shining the little pipe that connects the toilet to the wall.



  1. Would Mr. Obama be able to obtain FBI or CIA clearance in light of his associations? I’ve heard that he couldn’t. Comforting, no?

  2. The main stream media is pathetic. No media bias? I don’t know how people can hear this stuff and not be enraged. I didn’t watch the infomercial either. I really could not take half an hour of well spoken, cleverly disguised lies. And from what I hear today, it was in part a parade of down and out people who are looking for Obama to save them. I wonder how many of them are taking advantage of the social programs that already exist?
    By the way must read:

  3. From what I hear, too, it was a “parade of victims.” Watching it, one might think the US is a third world country. The government can’t save anyone, and it never has. But leave it to the liberals to want to throw even more social programs at these problems and punish success by taxing it. (and I’m talking those in my income bracket, not people who eat caviar and own private jets, either.)
