Paging Sean Penn !!!
The ex-president ( Fidel) had previously expressed admiration for Obama, but this time Castro blasted the new U.S. president for showing signs of "superficiality."Reflections of Fidel: Obama and The Blockade
The former Cuban president rejects suggestions that the island should free political prisoners or cut taxes on remittances from the U.S.
Journalist Jake: Thank you, Mr. President. You've heard from a lot of Latin America leaders here who want the U.S. to lift the embargo against Cuba. You've said that you think it's an important leverage to not lift it. But in 2004, you did support lifting the embargo. You said, it's failed to provide the source of raising standards of living, it's squeezed the innocent, and it's time for us to acknowledge that this particular policy has failed. I'm wondering, what made you change your mind about the embargo?
THE PRESIDENT: Well, 2004, that seems just eons ago. What was I doing in 2004?
Jake: Running for Senate.
PRESIDENT: …and the fact that you had Raul Castro say he's willing to have his government discuss with ours not just issues of lifting the embargo, but issues of human rights, political prisoners, that's a sign of progress.
According to Sean Penn's buddy, Fidel:
Without any doubt, the president misinterpreted Raúl’s statement.
During the press conference and the final meetings of the Summit, Obama showed signs of smugness.
When he stated, responding to Jake, that today, 2004 seemed like eons ago, that was superficial.
Awaiting reaction from Communism's poster boy, Sean Penn!
