Castro snubs George Mc Govern

index
"But I thought he really, really liked me...?"

Former Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern was heading back to the United States on Monday without having seen Fidel Castro, whom he calls an old friend, for the first time in nearly 17 years.

The 88-year-old former senator from South Dakota said officials told him Castro, who temporarily stepped aside as president in 2006 and then resigned permanently in 2008, has been "extremely busy" with official matters and the presence of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.."

"The remittance-travel lifeline from the U.S. is flowing nicely, amigo McGovern. Your Democratic Party has seen to that. So no need to waste time with you "the conscience of the Democratic party". But the Venezuelan lifeline needed prompt and serious attention--I'm sure you understand--but y'all come back now!"
