Sanders smarter than Perez

leave a comment »

On Monday night, Senator Bernie Sanders went on FOX News to answer a few questions.  On balance, Senator Sanders is going to have a lot of problems selling that message to a broader or general electorate.  In other words, Senator Sanders may be very good in front of college students but won’t be so successful in front of people who actually pay taxes and don’t feel that they should pay more.

Nevertheless, I gave Senator Sanders credit for taking tough questions.  Unlike most Democrats who appear on friendly shows, Sanders understands that you have to win on the road if you want to compete for the title.    

On Monday, another Democrat also appeared on Fox News.  I’m talking about DNC Chair Tom Perez, who explained his decision to skip the network for the primary debates:    

“Will you reconsider your decision on having debates here on the Fox News Channel?” Hemmer asked.

“Bill, here’s why we won’t do that,” Perez said. “I don’t have faith in your leadership at Fox News at the senior levels. I have great respect for Bret [Baier] and for Chris [Wallace] and for you, but you’ve demonstrated that above your pay grade, they don’t trust your own listeners, and so they feel they have to put the thumb on the scale.” 

Really, Tomas? …or “Tomasito” as your mother called you when you said something really stupid.

Memo to Tomas:  Your candidate did not win the last time.  Your 2020 candidate is going to need some of those votes that your 2016 candidate did not get.  Some of those votes are watching Fox not the others.

Furthermore, the DNC is not toughening their candidates by taking questions from Rachel Maddow or Don Lemmon.  They need to get out and do what Senator Sanders did last night.

Did I just hear that the odds favor President Trump’s election?   Wonder why?

When VP Nixon met Fidel Castro

leave a comment »

This week in 1959, Fidel Castro visited the U.S. a few months after taking power.

Castro’s visit was rather controversial because he faced skepticism from many in the U.S.  He was asked about the promised elections that were delayed and delayed.  He also heard over and over about communists in the background.   

Castro was also beginning to hear a lot of criticism from fellow Cubans who kept asking about the surplus of communists and deficits of reforms.

Finally, President Dwight D. Eisenhower did not meet with him but VP Richard Nixon did.  After the meeting, VP Nixon said that his bearded visitor was  “…“either incredibly naive about communism or under communist discipline — my guess is the former.””

Castro also appeared on “Meet the Press” and denied that he was a communist.  He even joked about it saying that some people thought that Adam and Eve were communists.

Furthermore, Castro benefited from a lot of people in the U.S. who were caught up in the cult of personality and did not know the truth of pre-Castro Cuba.  As my late father said, we had a lot more home grown prosperity than casinos!

Down in the island, Castro continued to deny that he was a communist and put people in jail for accusing him of that.

In December 1961, eight months after the failed Bay of Pigs invasion, he declared his allegiance to Marxism-Leninism and our worst fears were realized.  

By the way, none of the people jailed for calling him a communist were released when Castro confirmed that he was indeed a communist. Anyone surprised about that?

I think a lot about my parents and my dad’s cousin who spent 14 years in a political prison for publicly opposing the growing presence of communists in Castro’s inner circle.
