Obama Snags Sandinista Endorsement

Daniel OrtegaLast week there was the uproar over a Cuban flag emblazoned with the image of leftist thug and butcher Che Guevara hanging in an Obama campaign office.  Now comes a ringing endorsement from the former head of the Sandinistas, the Soviet backed Marxist regime that battled for control of Nicaragua against the freedom fighting Contras funded by the United States.

President Daniel Ortega, who led the 1979 revolution in Nicaragua, says Barack Obama’s presidential bid is a “revolutionary” phenomenon in the United States.

“It’s not to say that there is already a revolution under way in the U.S. … but yes, they are laying the foundations for a revolutionary change,” the Sandinista leader said Wednesday night as he accepted an honorary doctorate from an engineering university.

Ronald Reagan - Stop CommunismSpoken like an aging hippie who still imagines that the days of free love and Woodstock are still alive and well, Danny Ortega still dreams of Communist revolutions.  Not here, buddy.  Not ever.

Ortega led a Soviet-backed government that battled U.S.-supported Contra rebels before he lost power in a 1990 election. He returned to office last year via the ballot box.

In statements broadcast on Sandinista Radio La Primerisima, Ortega said he has “faith in God and in the North American people, and above all in the youth, that the moment of great change in the U.S. will come and it will act differently, with justice and equality toward all nations.”

Now if only Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez would endorse Barack Osama as well, he’ll have the Democrat party nomination in the bag.  Do madrassas make endorsements?

  1. So despite thinking he’s a hippie dirtbag, you still think his opinion matters at all? What’s with the double standard?

  2. Last week there was the uproar over a Cuban flag emblazoned with the image of leftist thug and butcher Che Guevara hanging in an Obama campaign office.

    WRONG.

    From the MyFox site the story links to:

    The office featured in this video is funded by volunteers of the Barack Obama Campaign and is not an official headquarters for his campaign.

    Also see this, for a little bit of data:

    Also Wednesday, Ortega gave approval to various army officials to receive training at the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation, operated by the U.S. Defense Department in Fort Benning, Georgia — even as he said he would continue to lobby for the school’s closure.

    The president claims that members of the now-defunct National Guard who were trained at the school, formerly known as the School of the Americas, were involved in torture. Human rights groups say graduates went on to commit abuses throughout Latin America.

    The U.S. military has acknowledged that some graduates committed crimes after attending the School of the Americas, but that no cause-and-effect relationship has ever been established.

    The first non-white president. A complete turnover of Bush´s aggressive and evidently not working approach on foreign relations. Etc., etc. That IS quite revolutionary.

    Nice time photo. That guy is really something like your old shame, right? Having him cause soo much trouble right under your nose, a small piece of dirt foiling a superpower.

  4. Despite the fact that the contras sold weapons to Iran, you still call them freedom fighters. In spite of massacres, you praise them, amirite?
