More dripping hypocrisy from our president.

President Bush spoke Wednesday from Ghana about Cuba on news of Fidel Castro's resignation.

Here then is Bush publicly slipping on his Freud. (Parentheses are my Freudian interpretations.)

"The international community should work with the Cuban (American) people to begin to build institutions that are necessary for democracy. And eventually this transition ought to lead to free and fair elections, and I mean free and I mean fair. (Here Bush was referring to the 2001 U.S. election.) Not these kind of staged elections that the Castro (Bush) brothers try to foist off as being true democracy."

My husband & I caught that speech on a news clip last night & we both burst out in large belly laughs. Free & fair elections, say it again sternly.... *&*%^ head

I'm still chocking on the demand for affordable housing and food for all Cubans. Was that 21 plus million homeless Americans? Oh, and the US obviously doesn't need the food kitchens and other relief charities obviously.

Yes, before one goes globe hopping espousing his concern for the starving and diseased in African in hopes of landing some sites for his military ambitions for that continent, you think he might first take care of his own back home, heh? (NOT!)

Yes, Fran, entertaining isn't he? (Just take care to see you're not ingesting food or beverage while listening to our leader, lest one choke on Bush's words.)

Apparently Hillary clinton has taken to providing us with some of that gag reflex presentations as well:

When asked in the recent Texas debates if the candidates would meet & speak with Raul Castro, the new President of Cuba, Hillary replied:

"Cuba should first make progress on long-standing U.S. complaints about the need to improve human rights and release political prisoners."

Wow! The irony of this statement Clinton made. Funny she should happen to bring up both human rights and political prisoners in Cuba. Can you say Guantanamo Prison? The United States' dirty little gulog?
I mean seriously Hill-- are we being punk'd or what?
Apparently she kept a straight face while making the statement too!

Fran: Dada says (gaggingly), "Your comment has left me confused! Yes, we watched that debate--our first (and likely our last)."

"From Hillary's statement, you mean WE -- the U.S.! -- is responsible for those Gitmo prisoners and not Raul Castro?"

And here I had been thinking Fidel and those Communist bastards were the ones responsible for those Guantanamo prisoners...that all Raoul had to do was show some sign of sincerity that he's accepting the same high standards of human rights and dignity we always profess to uphold. But that's not the case??!!

It was all so clear after her testimony, but now you've gone and cast doubt in what I thought was my increasingly lucid reality tunnel.

(BTW, the front section of the newspaper is the last section I read each day, so I was disappointed to learn president Bill appeared about a mile and 1/2 down the 'hood from us. Even for Bill, I would have gone and covered this for the blog, but sadly (??) I didn't learn of it until a couple of hours after the fact.)
