    Cuban minister says Obama "imperial, arrogant"

    HAVANA, Dec 21 (Reuters)

    Cuba accused U.S. President Barack Obama on Monday of being "imperial, arrogant" and dishonest during last week's global climate conference in the latest sign of deteriorating relations between Havana and Washington.

    Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez said in a televised press conference that Obama lied during the United Nations summit in Copenhagen and is making a habit of it after less than a year in office.

    "He lies all the time, deceives with demagogic words, with profound cynicism," Rodriguez told reporters.

    "In this summit there was only an imperial, arrogant Obama who doesn't listen, who imposes positions that even threaten developing countries," he said.

    Although this is not shocking to those who know Obama's style, and tactic here in the US, it seems the rest of the world is now seeing the bloom come off the rose......

    One foreign minister, from Cuba, who's been doing what he does for a few months, somehow equals "the rest of the world."

    O-kay.

    I love how the right will support a Cuban minister over their own President who is a Democrat. If that same Cuban minister said something similar about Bush, you'd be the first to say Cuba is commie backwards land where nothing they say matters.

    Stop posting your crap in BN.

    This is no big deal, they'd basically say this of any U.S. president; in fact they do, all the time. "Imperial" is one of the Cuban government's favorite words.

    Hmmm.....


    WASHINGTON -- After a day spent frantically darting around Copenhagen trying to locate world leaders, getting snubbed by China's premier and crashing a meeting where he had initially been kept out, President Obama heralded a last-minute, largely toothless UN global-warming summit deal that drew fast fire from all sides as a sham.
    Almost no one was happy with the outcome of the two-week confab and even the president, who was slammed by liberals and Republicans alike, along with other world leaders, admitted that the pact doesn't legally commit any of the nations involved -- the point of the summit in the first place.

    President Obama, stood up earlier by Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, is forced to push his way into talks yesterday. "Mr. Premier, are you ready to see me? Are you ready?" he asks.
    Obama may become known as "the man who killed Copenhagen," said Greenpeace US head Phil Radford, one of many activists to rap the president for the flimsy agreement with India, South Africa, Brazil and China, which thwarted the president throughout the conference.
    The deal, which would have to be accepted by all nations to be adopted, asks all parties to list how they'll cap emissions by set amounts, among other general goals.
    But critics say it pushes any legally binding steps into the future.
    It was roundly blasted as a farce from all quarters.

    So let's get this straight, Obama is so dissed by the rest of the leaders talking at the "Dopenhagen" summit, that he is lied to, and then races all over town to hunt them down and force his way in....What a loser!

    maybe so, but the world thinks Obama is a lying putz. That much is clear. They have no respect for him.

    Obama's foriegn policies, even when irrational, are meant to appease the Cuban government, and yet he still gets blamed for so much.

    Hostile country speaks badly of US president. So unusual.
