HAVANA — Cuba’s foreign minister called President Barack Obama an “imperial and arrogant” liar Monday for his conduct at the U.N. climate conference, a reflection of the communist island’s increasingly fiery verbal attacks on the U.S. government.
Bruno Rodriguez spent an hour and a half lambasting Obama’s behavior in Copenhagen, telling a news conference, “at this summit, there was only imperial, arrogant Obama, who does not listen, who imposes his positions and even threatens developing countries.” He called the summit “a fallacy, a farce” and said Washington used back-room deals and strong-arm tactics to foist on the world a deal that he labeled “undemocratic” and “suicidal” because it urges — but does not require — major polluters to make deeper emissions cuts.
Rodriguez also said Cuba and other poor nations have refused to recognize the agreement because they weren’t permitted to participate in its development.
He singled out comments Obama made during a news conference in Copenhagen, when the U.S. president said no agreement had yet been reached but he was confident one would before the summit ended. “Obama knew he was lying, that he was deceiving public opinion,” the foreign minister said.
“Imperial, arrogant Obama, who does not listen, who imposes his positions…”
Shit, that sounds exactly the way he behaves here at home.
He called the summit “a fallacy, a farce” and said Washington used back-room deals and strong-arm tactics to foist on the world a deal that he labeled “undemocratic”….
Oh, it was a farce, alright. But not for the reasons he thinks. The whole “man-made climate change” scam is a fallacy.
The backroom deals and strong-arm tactics are being applied to ram Obamacare and the Cap and Trade through our legislature.
Rodriguez wouldn’t recognize democracy if it walked up and kicked him in the cajones. Cuba has never been a democracy; it’s officially been a communist state since 1961. Come to think of it, our own government has taken on a bit of Cuba’s political traits since 20 January 2009.
But ya gotta hand it to the little commie bastard, he recognizes an imperial, arrogant liar when he sees one.
