• Obama Twice As Popular Than Castro In Cuba

    There’s irony and then there’s sweet, glorious irony.

    Apparently, people in Cuba like Barack Obama nearly twice as much as they do their Communist leader Raul Castro.

    Now some might argue that just because Cuba has been run by the Commie brothers Fidel and Raul Castro for decades, it doesn’t mean that they view Obama as a better version of their corrupt overlords.

    Either way you slice it, it’s hard to argue with the implicit logic of the Cuban people on this one.

    It seems that those who live under perpetual, unescapable tyranny tend to be fans of tyrannical leaders.

    The Castro brothers used the strong arm of government and guns to run and rule Cuba for decades.

    Obama, by contrast, loves to use the iron fist of big government to force taxpayers to pay for other people’s birth control, food, housing, and health care.

    Different means, fairly similar ends.

    There’s more on these interesting new poll numbers from New York Daily News:

    President Obama is significantly more popular in Cuba these days than in the United States, according to a new poll conducted for Fusion and The Washington Post.

    About 80% of Cubans have a favorable opinion of Obama in the wake of recent moves toward normalizing relations between the formerly feuding countries, according to the poll.

    That’s a lot higher than his poll numbers back home.

    Obama’s approval rating has been hovering around 45% in the most recent polling — about as popular as President Raul Castro is in Cuba. According to the poll, Castro’s approval rating has dipped to a lowly 47%.
