Trump v Obama on Castro death, it’s Trump hands down.

November 27, 2016

castrodeadIt is no secret that today’s Democrat party would be unrecognizable to its former standard bearers, JFK, Truman and FDR. Imagine the party of today that literally works overtime to remove any mention of God from the public square putting up with FDR taking to the radio on June 6th, 1944 with the following opening:

My Fellow Americans:
Last night, when I spoke with you about the fall of Rome, I knew at that moment that troops of the United States and our Allies were crossing the Channel in another and greater operation. It has come to pass with success thus far.
And so, in this poignant hour, I ask you to join with me in prayer:
Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity…………………………

Or an inaugural address such as JFK’s that included the following:

we observe today not a victory of party, but a celebration of freedom—symbolizing an end, as well as a beginning—signifying renewal, as well as change. For I have sworn before you and Almighty God the same solemn oath our forebears prescribed nearly a century and three quarters ago………
…….Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God’s work must truly be our own.

So is it any surprise the stark differences between President-elect Donald Trump’s response to the death of tyrant Fidel Castro and President-apology Barack Obama?

Note the initial reactions of President-elect Trump and Vice-President-elect Mike Pence as reflected in their corresponding tweets:

Next came the official White House statement:

Statement by the President on the Passing of Fidel Castro

At this time of Fidel Castro’s passing, we extend a hand of friendship to the Cuban people. We know that this moment fills Cubans – in Cuba and in the United States – with powerful emotions, recalling the countless ways in which Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation. History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him.
For nearly six decades, the relationship between the United States and Cuba was marked by discord and profound political disagreements. During my presidency, we have worked hard to put the past behind us, pursuing a future in which the relationship between our two countries is defined not by our differences but by the many things that we share as neighbors and friends – bonds of family, culture, commerce, and common humanity. This engagement includes the contributions of Cuban Americans, who have done so much for our country and who care deeply about their loved ones in Cuba.
Today, we offer condolences to Fidel Castro’s family, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Cuban people. In the days ahead, they will recall the past and also look to the future. As they do, the Cuban people must know that they have a friend and partner in the United States of America.

And below Mr. Trump’s statement:

Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades.
Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights.
While Cuba remains a totalitarian island, it is my hope that today marks a move away from the horrors endured for too long, and toward a future in which the wonderful Cuban people finally live in the freedom they so richly deserve.
Though the tragedies, deaths and pain caused by Fidel Castro cannot be erased, our administration will do all it can to ensure the Cuban people can finally begin their journey toward prosperity and liberty.
I join the many Cuban Americans who supported me so greatly in the presidential campaign, including the Brigade 2506 Veterans Association that endorsed me, with the hope of one day soon seeing a free Cuba.

So my fellow Americans, as the days unfold and you read, watch and hear all the “nuanced” recollections of Castro and Cuba and his “place in history”, keep in mind that when he was finally ushered in to his suite in hell, that same history will record that one man Barack Obama focused on his own legacy and political agenda while another, Donald J. Trump, boldly and clearly spoke the truth to a world in dire need of hearing it.

God Bless the United States of America and God save the electoral college from the clutches of those that would abolish it for the tyranny of the majority.
