Atlas Fidel Castro Shrugs

by the Left Coast Rebel

I guess the following story proves that Obama is the more ideologically-pure statist than even "Great Leader" Fidel Castro.

As per the title here, Cuba and the communist author of the 50 + year misery of the Cuban people has finally shrugged (thrown in the towel) on an evil, vile, satanic ideology (even as our own government 'tinkers' with such).

The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg had dinner and a conversation with the communist dictator and witnessed this admission:

But during the generally lighthearted conversation (we had just spent three hours talking about Iran and the Middle East), I asked him if he believed the Cuban model was still something worth exporting.

"The Cuban model doesn't even work for us anymore," he said.

This struck me as the mother of all Emily Litella moments. Did the leader of the Revolution just say, in essence, "Never mind"?

I asked Julia to interpret this stunning statement for me. She said, "He wasn't rejecting the ideas of the Revolution. I took it to be an acknowledgment that under 'the Cuban model' the state has much too big a role in the economic life of the country."
How long will it take for Obama to admit that "the state has much too big a role in the economic life of the country"?

Even as the economy is laid waste, probably never.

What does that tell you?

Via Memeorandum.

  1. the fact that this will get no coverage i think goes to show that the leftists already know their ideas are destructive, and pursue them anyway

  2. You are totally correct, Shane. Glad you found LCR and welcome!

  3. So Shane, maybe we could envision a donkey pursuing a carrot dangling from a stick... (probably more like a junkie seeking his next fix)

  4. Meanwhile, dozens of Hollywood actors are changing their next year's Summer vacation plans, canceling hotel reservations in Cuba, and booking stays in Maricaibo.

    Sean peen still continues his bouts with severe rectal cramps.

    ..see The War Planner's site for further details.

    (Not trying to siphon off the traffic, LCR, the details are a little off-color and I wanted to preserve the family atmosphere over here.)

  5. Rats! Peen s/b Penn, of course.
