    This time the recipient of Obama’s obsequious obeisance is Cuban President Raul Castro, who presides over one of the communist dictatorships Nelson Mandela openly sided with against the USA. The picture was taken in Africa today, where Obama — who blew off the funeral of treasured US ally Margaret Thatcher — flew to pay homage at Mandela’s memorial service.

    You think that is a bow?

    Bit of a stretch.

    Is he bowing or is he leaning down to shake the hand of a shorter man? If he were greeting someone who was sitting in a wheelchair would it be a bow?

    If you see it in motion, as I did, it's not a bow. Raul's a short guy.

    Just shaking hands with an unrepentant communist thug who inherited his job from his brother should be indictment enough.

    I don't know that he really could avoid it in this circumstance.

    Update:

    Handshake No Accident: Obama Regime And Cuba Have Been Conducting Secret Talks For Past Six Months

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...rt-claims.html

    The handshake seen 'round the water cooler was no fluke, it turns out.

    When President Barack Obama approached the podium at Nelson Mandela's memorial service and made a beeline for a row of foreign leaders – stopping first to shake Cuban dictator Raúl Castro's hand – it came after representatives from the two historically antagonistic nations had already been in talks for six months.

    '[B]ehind the scenes,' two Daily Beast national security reporters wrote on Tuesday, 'U.S. and Cuban officials have held midlevel discussions in Havana and Washington on a range of issues, including direct postal service, migration issues, disaster response, and search and rescue at sea.'

    During the president's trip back from South Africa, Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes told reporters on Air Force One that 'it's been quite some time since the Presidents of the United States and Cuba were even in the same place.'

    But he acknowledged that 'we’re in talks on issues associated with migration that, again, I think allow for there to be greater connectivity particularly among Cuban Americans and Cuba.'

    To be honest, I don't understand why we talk to China and Vietnam but not Cuba-other than both parties' desire to carry Florida in national elections.

    Obama never has to win Florida again. He can have talks with Cuba.
