Today, at the Memorial Service for Nelson Mandela, President Barack Obama (as well as Bill and Hillary Clinton, Jimmy and Roselyn Carter and George W. and Laura Bush) sat in a special VIP section, assumedly for current and past Heads-of-State, as well as other dignitaries. As many of the people entered, they greeted various other attendees. Well, President Obama shook hands with President Raul Castro, of Cuba.
Today, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) castigated the President for greeting a Communist President. In fact, he also referenced Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, of Great Britain, shaking hands with Adolf Hitler; but, he seemed to forget the time he met and shook Muammar Gaddafi’s hand–remember the Libyans placed a bomb on the airline flight that exploded over Lockerbie, Scotland. I GUESS THE FACT THAT SLIGHTING ANOTHER ATTENDEE AT A MEMORIAL SERVICE DIDN’T SEEM TO BE A PROBLEM IN MCCLAINS WORLD.
Oh well, if Barack Obama did it, you know that it’s wrong. GOPSPEAK?
NOTE: The “Selfie” that has gone viral, on the Internet, has President Obama and British Prime Minister, David Cameron, sitting on each side of the Prime Minister of Denmark, Helle Thorning-Schmidt.
