    agreed, but that was then and this is now. Eons apart in terms of the cold war/Soviet Union/Cuban client state

    Wow... This is one of the most pathetic threads I've ever read.

    For people who say liberals are the bleeding hearts, since Obama was elected, many on the right show us every days ugh threads like this who the real "bleeding hearts" are.

    There is nothing so trivial, that they cannot get outraged over.

    I'm all for American exceptionalism, we can be an exceptional people. I'm not all for the idea we have to impose our standards on the rest of the world.
    I have no problem with anything you said here.

    Bowing when greeting someone is custom in some places too. But no, I haven't been to Saudi Arabia, that's only safe for elitists.

    I saw it as the president simply being respectful. Obama's taller so he leaned in to get on eye level with Castro.

    Why should he be respectful to a communist dictator that as we speak is holding an innocent American in one of his filthy prisons? He should have given Castro the quickest most formal handshake he could while glaring at him with go f*** yourself eyes.

    Do you know how many people the Cu-coms have tortured and murdered?

    Sucking up to evil is trivial? Giving this thug a photo op to show his people how respected he is, is trivial? Not in the world I live in it's not.

    You can't even see his face. How do you know the president didn't lean over to get in Castro's face and glare at him with go **** yourself eyes?
