Obama shook the bloody hand of Castro-Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen(R)
The Cuban exile community, as well as those who sympathize for their suffrage at the hands of the Communist and inhuman regime of Fidel Castro, and his brother, Raul Castro.
Cuba’s Castro brothers, who have jailed dissidents who oppose their iron-fist way of ruling Cubans, have a long history of committing human rights violations, including torture and murder.
Republican Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who was born in Cuba and fled to the United States, recently appeared on Fox News, where she openly criticized President Obama for shaking “the bloody hand of Castro.”While everyone is focused on the handshake, there isn’t much talk about the fact that Obama subserviently bowed to yet another foreign leader. This handshake was expected, after all, Obama has eased travel restrictions to Cuba, and is open to lifting the embargo.
Ros-Lehtinen says that there isn’t any daylight between the brothers Fidel and Raul.

When asked what the President should have done instead of shaking Castro’s hand, the Congresswoman said that Castro “did deserve President Obama to bestow him this courtesy,” adding that Obama “should have shunned him, he should have ignored him”, and “he should have shook the hands of democratically elected leaders.”Did Obama and his people already have this “chance encounter” with Cuba’s dictator on the books?.
I don’t think it was by chance, or by accident, that the President of the United States was seated in front of Raul Castro-he knew who was going to be behind him, he could have easily turned the other way and ignored him
We saw a shift with the Syria policy, we saw a shift with the Iran policy, now we are trusting Iran to dismantle its nuclear program. I think the President wants to make good on the Nobel Peace prize he didn’t deserve, still doesn’t now, but that he got it even before he was really President, and now in this second term, I fear the worst in this presidency, when it comes to foreign policy.
He is tip-toeing around with all the thugs and making deals whenever he can. we should be advocating for freedom, for democracy, and standing up for America values, not shaking Raul Castro’s hand. –Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen
One thing that is a constant in politics is that coincidences like this handshake do not exists. This meeting between the two leaders was by design
