So, Obama shook hands with Castro at the Mandela funeral service. A bunch of people seem to think that this is a big deal and is symbolic in some way.
While true that a sitting President should not shake hands with a communist dictator, I fail to get worked up over this turn of events.
1. We know that Obama is a Marxist and resonates with the philosophy of the communist leader.
2. Hanlon’s Razor:
Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
I am more convinced that Obama either didn’t know who he was shaking hands with or that his advance staff failed to tell him who he was. Such an explanation is far more likely than Obama making a conscience statement with his actions.
