Fidel Castro Calls Republican Primary a "Competition of Bullshit"

In a move that Republican presidential hopefuls will probably milk for all it's worth as they travel in and out of Miami this week, former Cuban President Fidel Castro today called the field competing for the Republican presidential nomination, "the greatest competition of idiocy and ignorance that has ever been."

Though, before you take this as proof positive that Castro loves Democrats, remember this is the same bearded old crank who called President Obama "stupid" this past September and said that a robot might be preferable to anyone, Republican or Democrat, running for president.

Castro inserted the insult in his occasional column that runs in state-run media.

"The selection of a Republican candidate for the presidency of this globalized and expansive empire is -- and I mean this seriously -- the greatest competition of idiocy and ignorance that has ever been," he wrote according to The New York Times' translation.

Though, a more colloquial translation of idioteces would be "crap" or "bullshit."

Castro then snaps, "Because I have things to do, I can not devote time to the issue."

We doubt that the Republican candidates will mind that much. Being insulted by Fidel Castro is a political point of pride in South Florida. In fact, if Castro really wanted to troll American politics he'd probably start praising whoever emerges as the Republican nominee while degrading Obama.

HILARIOUS! You can hate the guy as much as you like, but know this; Fidel stared down the American cannon and didnt flinch. He will die happy and laughing. Meanwhile, ... back in the states....

Yep! That really all you have to do to get elected to congress state or local office, be anti Castro. Visit Versailles come up with catchy slogans about Free Cuba and bingo you just been elected. Just look at the icon Congressman and women elected each year, all republicans and all idiots. Never a strategic plan just rhetoric and more bull. When will they all wake up and start looking at real candidates of which the GOP has none.

If there is one thing that i am certain here is that "CUBANS" in Miami are the most ignorant and  stupid folks when it comes to politics. This is the same group that supported and faithfully voted for years and years a REPUBLICAN candidate that run on the slogan "En el 90 Fidel revienta" yet 12 hard core republican years later Fidel was still there. Want to run for office? here is what you need to do, Go out and get some money for campaign ads. Then go to Versailles or La Carreta restaurants, then simply invent a nice catchy slogan that says something about Castro that sounds good to the Cuban community, Bingo !!!!!!!!!! You just got elected. The Cuban fools will have even their pets making lines to vote you in office. This may sound humorous but trust me I am Cuban and a former Republican.This type of behavior was "mandatory" in all of my family members.

The only problem here is that picture is not Fidel. He died 10 years ago but his lookalikes live on and are perpetuated by Raoul his equally deceptive bro'. Not to mention the Cubans are such cowards they don't care about getting their country back. How do we know this? Most of the Cubans are now in South Florida sitting on their fat asses doing nada, that's how.

He has a point, I'm ready to pull the plug on the position of POTUS, that way we won't need a VP either. Just in Presidential salary & pension alone, that's $ 400K/year. If Congress really is the determining body of government ?
