    Castro cheers passage of Obama's health care bill a 'miracal'

    From the Associated Press, Cuban leader applauds US health-care reform bill. Here's a snippet of what the story covers.

    Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro on Thursday declared passage of American health care reform "a miracle" and a major victory for Obama's presidency, but couldn't help chide the United States for taking so long to enact what communist Cuba achieved decades ago.

    "We consider health reform to have been an important battle and a success of his (Obama's) government," Castro wrote in an essay published in state media, adding that it would strengthen the president's hand against lobbyists and "mercenaries."

    But the Cuban leader also used the lengthy piece to criticize the American president for his lack of leadership on climate change and immigration reform, and for his decision to send more troops to Afghanistan, among many other things.

    "It is really incredible that 234 years after the Declaration of Independence ... the government of that country has approved medical attention for the majority of its citizens, something that Cuba was able to do half a century ago," Castro wrote.

    Well, isn't it a bit ironic that a communist leader is praising Obama's health care agenda; and at the same time, in America all these 'crazy extremist' Tea Partiers keep bringing up Obama and socialism? The whole thing is ironic. That's all, I guess.

    Wow that proves he is a communist? I discounted the same type of generalization of GW as a Facist when Congress passed bills that had to the Patriot Act.

    both are garbage, but to each his own.

    Castro and Chavez are going to do anything to piss off those that supported GW.

    John Wayne Gacy killed a lot of little boys, and he also happened to be a Republican. Should we now assume that Republicans support what John Wayne Gacy did? Hmmm?

    I don't really care if some random communist supports the bill. That doesn't say anything about the bill itself, it's just an attempt at proving guilt by association. I bet that Osama Bin Laden approves of Prop 8, but that isn't a valid argument against that Bill either.
