IS THE RISE OF TRUMP,
THE FRUIT FROM THE OBAMA TREE?

CAN GLORY EVER BE RESTORED?

.

Many political writers, politicians, and candidates for the office of President of both parties have openly criticized the nature, and style, of the presidential primaries.

One of the common themes about all the complaints about the campaign is that it is diminishing the office of the President of The United States. I think a great deal of the blame for the diminishment of the office of President must lie at the feet of President Obama.

When a President of the United States makes a historic visit to the country of Cuba and is snubbed by Cuban leaders who are not at the airport to welcome him to their country, how can the office of the President not be insulted?

I agree with those commentators who said the President should have just got back on the plane and returned to Washington. When the Cuban government is willing to give the President an honorable welcome, then the President could return.

If the snub at the airport wasn’t enough of an insult, Fidel had some harsh words for the President. Fidel who did not meet Obama during the Presidents three-day visit, chastised the American President in a 1,600 word letter that appeared in the communist newspaper Granma shortly after the President left.

The lengthy letter in which Fidel recounted the history of United States’ aggression against his country, including the Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961, and the decades-long economic embargo of the island, which he noted is still in effect. He chastised Mr. Obama, 54, for his youth and for failing to recognize what Mr. Castro said were the major accomplishments of Cuba’s Communist revolution, such as state pensions and salaries, the steps to eradicate racial discrimination and the role of Cuba’s indigenous people in society.
