No Cubans torturing in Hanoi

I’m no McCain fan, and I will not vote him. Even if that means allowing a Democrat to be elected. I’m tired of voting for the lesser of two evils and I cannot and will not compromise my principles and vote for someone who in my opinion is a hypocrite.
That said, you gotta love the tit for tat fifo is having with McCain over his January remarks that Cubans tortured him in Hanoi.

“For me to respond to Fidel Castro, who has oppressed and repressed his people and who is one of the most brutal dictators on Earth, for me to dignify any comments he might make is certainly beneath me.

Of course, fifo is calling him a liar and bringing out the religion card in todays editorial on that pulitzer winning piece of journalism called Granma.
As always this is not news to us; fifo’s goonies commit torture? Or even fifo himself? You don’t say…..
Is fifo even alive at this point? Can anyone outthere photoshop the Where’s Waldo poster into a Where’s fifo? Seriously, I believe they are keeping him alive through ghost writing of his editorials.

  1. So, in eight years, we’ll have the perfect conservative to:
    1. Fix health care (end socialized medicine)
    2. Shut down the departments of this or that.
    3. Fight Islamic extremism in Iraq.
    What precedence is there of any Republican actually reducing government anywhere?

  2. I understand how many who frequent this site often have disagreed with McCain and question his positions on some conservative issues. What cannot be questioned, however, has been his continued support for the cause of freedom in Cuba and his support for human rights on the island and the political prisoners there. What I don’t understand is how someone who cares about freedom in Cuba would vote for a dem. or refrain from voting altogether when the candidate running for president has either a) expressed and openly flaunted his intention to meet with cuban officials during his first year in office, or b) is another clinton.
    this is not a case of “the lesser of two evils.” this is a choice between a candidate who genuinely wants to see a transition on the island and two candidates who are satisfied with stability and compromise in the face of this critical period in Cuba’s history.

    Because sometimes Cuban Americans – many Miami Cubans, in their intransigence, can be very selfish and are living in a hermetically sealed vacuum sipping thier cortaditos and eating media noches in that lovely city I love so much but puzzles the hell out of me. I am a New York City Cuban American – life is tough, it’s cold here, and dirty, there ain’t no Palm trees here, the Cuban resturants are run by Dominicans and the food stinks and I have suffered and been discriminated from both sides of the political spectrum – the leftist Democratic Latinos hate me because i am not one of them because I hate castro and vote Republican – and the so called conservative Archie Bunker ethnic whites hate me because am a spic to them. However, Cuba – or the Cuban idea of a free island is in my heart.
    I want Hillary out of the picture here in NY and Nationally! She came here to NY and in her fakeness acted as if she owned the place – so I want her out – so on election day I will vote with pride at whoever is on the Republican ticket. I don’t like Guliani because of his abortion stance but I was prepared to vote for him against Hillary.

  4. Mandingo,
    First off, I am not a Miami Cuban
    Secondly, to answer you and Danielito in a short, concise and crude manner.
    Cuba is just one of the issues that I consider when voting for a president. Yes I want a candidate that has a strong stance on the Cuban issue, but like it or not, we don’t live in Cuba.
    That means, I look at the candidates stance on US issues – immigration, size of government, taxes, gun rights. I’m a Republican not because my parents were Republican; not because of Kennedy and Playa Giron.
    I am a Republican because except for the death penalty I believe 100% on the ideas that make up the party platform.
    McCain, tortured or not, friend or foe of Cuba, is NOT a Republican in my book. Much like Sen Chaffee in RI was not a Republican even though he was a member of the party.
    I don’t like the Dems, but let me tell you, right about now, Obie is looking like the most honest candidate. Everyone else is selling their ideals for votes – Hillary, McCain and Huckabee. I don’t sell my ideals; therefore I could never vote for someone who does.
    Hopefull that leaves clear why I will not be voting for McCain.
