    No it would not, not in this case. Everyone hates Castro and our President would have come off as a hero just for giving him a simple gesture like a middle finger.

    No one wants Castro's respect. The only respectful thing he could have done would be to shoot himself in the head at the funeral service.

    Not quite, just a president who fights for his country, instead of apologizing for it.

    He ****s on his allies and supplicates to his enemies-and in left-land thats a sign of strength-remember the "reset" button?

    They are both socialists, the left will overlook amazing atrocities if you are on the same political team.
