And the coveted Kim Jong Il endorsement for President of the United States goes to...
More spot on commentary from Good Lt. over at Jawa:
North Korea’s endorsement of Obama will probably draw comparisons to the unwanted Hamas endorsement of Obama. Hamas withdrew the endorsement after Obama spoke at AIPAC’s convention. Fidel Castro, by contrast, took a more sophisticated and self-aware approach:
[O]n Monday [Castro] gave Senator Barack Obama an endorsement of sorts, calling him “the most progressive candidate to the U.S. presidency” while also berating him for his plan to continue the trade embargo against Cuba. “Were I to defend him, I would do his adversaries an enormous favor,” Mr. Castro said. “I have therefore no reservations about criticizing him.” [N.Y. Times, The Caucus]
Which Castro then proceeded to do, on Obama’s stated support for trade sanctions during a campaign speech to Cuban exiles in Miami.
The list of endorsements is indeed growing: Farrakhan, Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Syria's Assad, Hamas ... and (as mentioned above) Kim Jong Il, and Castro. That's the whole "Axis of Evil" and then some! It is pretty much the entire list of State Sponsors of Terrorism. ALL our enemies want this guy to win.
The last supremely autocratic communist tyrant on the planet, responsible for untold numbers of human rights atrocities, concentration camps and violations of international law, has weighed in with his preference for the US election.
Guess who it is (hint: HOPECHANGE!).
Ask yourself why terrorists and tyrants all over the globe are rooting for The Lightworker.
Go ahead, Obamatrons. Ask yourself why.
Now why would that be?? Is it because our sworn enemies sense that Obama is the "strong horse"? (you will recall that in 2004 John Kerry got the endorsement of Bin Laden himself...)
