Followers of the American political scene cannot have failed to notice the aging of President Obama before their very eyes; the greying hair, the stuttering and indecision when talking without his teleprompter, or the lack of fluency and clarity when explaining his administration's strategy on everything from the economy to the murder and mayhem being perpetrated by Muslim terrorists around the world.
With this in mind it was heartening to see him totally relaxed on his history making visits to Cuba and Argentina. Obviously being among like minded ideologues who have a common belief in the redemptive benefits of socialism is preferable to being among those selfish capitalist millionaires and billionaires with their corporate jets and chauffeur driven limousines.
Much better to be in the land of communist revolutionaries who don't have to follow such inconveniences as a constitution or observe basic human rights such as the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Unlike President Obama, the Castro brothers - along with their late lamented comrade-in-arms Ernesto 'Che' Guevara - never had to concern themselves with stressful inconveniences such as freedom of speech, a citizens right to bear arms, fair trials, individual liberty, free multi-party elections, term limits etc.etc.
