Screaming!–Gesticulating!–Over-Emotional!–Irrational! Cuban-American at Democratic Convention!
From Cristina Saralegui’s ‘s speech:
“I want for my grandchildren the kind of country I grew up in!” (she’s 64)
“But Romney’s plan is to go BACKWARD!”
You cannot possibly MAKE this stuff up…!
“Fidel Castro is one of the most amazing human beings I’ve ever met!” (star of the Democratic National Convention Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (on left) upon visiting Cuba 2009. He fired-up the crowds shortly before Cristina.)
(Note the tepid response from the DNC crowd when “our” Cristina mentioned escaping Castro’s Cuba)
“Florida’s Cubans,” wrote Michael Moore in his book, Downsize This, “are responsible for sleaze and influence-peddling in American politics. … In every incident of national torment that has deflated our country for the past three decades … Cuban exiles are always present and involved.”
Michael Moore was a guest of honor at the 2004 Democratic National Convention.
Norman Birnbaum, an advisor to three Democratic presidential candidates, referred to: “those truly reprehensible Miami Cubans.”
Cristina’s Democratic Convention gig was between Emanuel Cleaver’s and Bill Clinton’s (who ordered the shanghaiing of Elian Gonzalez upon Castro’s request.)
(Did somebody mention Cuban “Uncle Toms?”)

(And oh..and that was Norman BIRNBAUM I mentioned–NOT Norman GREENBAUM…
