Obama Shook hands and Bowed to Castro

The politics of the Ultra-Reactionary Right demand that whenever a Real American is in a position to   belittle someone they engage in the Politics of Confrontation.

During the Memorial Service for Nelson Mandela, President Obama shook hands with Cuba's President Raul 'Not Fidel' Castro. Senator Marco Rubio took time away from doing nothing in Congress, to complain to ABC News
"If he was going to shake his hand, he should have asked him about those basic freedoms Mandela was associated with that are denied in Cuba." 
Ah, but in the epistemic closure of the Right-Wing Fart Bubble this wasn't just a handshake but a Bow.
It’s not just a handshake, notice the tip of the head and bend of the back, it’s a bow. Notice also Castro did not bow back.
In sports parlance this is Meatball Fandom. Chicago Bears football games are not only difficult to attend because of the bitter cold (The MNF game against the Cowboys which the Bears won 45-28 had a wind chill of -10) but because of the many doofuses in the stands whose pinnacle of critique is, 'Team X Sucks!'

And that is exactly what Right-Wingers are doing, their politics of confrontation amount to nothing more than 'Obama Sucks!!!'

There have numerous examples, all the way from highly elected officials to the derpest of derp right-wing blogs.

During a Joint Session of Congress in September 2010, Republican Representative Joe Wilson yelled, "YOU LIE!!!"

During the 2010 State of the Union, Right-Wing SC Justice Sam Alito visibly shook his head and mouthed the words, "Not True..."

In June 2012 during a speech at the Rosegarden, Entitled White conservative Neil Munro of The Daily Caller interrupted President Obama shouting, "Why do you favor foreigners over Americans?"

And Right-Wingers and Republicans don't reserve their massive disrespect just for the President. If you disagree with them prepare to be yelled at.

Pete Sessions, that disgusting chicken hawk, yelled at an American during the Republican Government Shutdown that Republicans would never surrender because, "Look. We're Not French. We don't surrender."

Randy Neugebauer yelled at a Park Ranger and blamed her for the Republican Government Shutdown, and when she told him it wasn't her fault, Randy put that woman in her place,
Randy Neugebauer: "The Park Service should be ashamed of themselves."
Park Ranger: "I’m NOT ashamed."
Randy Neugebauer: "You should be."
'Obama Sucks!' Derp derp derp. That's what the Right-Wing Meatballs have offered as a counter to the policies of President Obama. When combined with the Do-Nothing Republican Representatives and Senators the country has continued towards the Neo-Feudalist Wage Slave State the 1% desire.

Give it 24 hours. It won't just be a handshake; it'll morph into a full blown Obama promising to hand Gitmo over to Cuba ASAP conspiracy theory.

While Canada, and Europe do mountains of business with Cuba, we watch, the embargo on Cuba is a sieve that only keeps us out.
Even more curious, is that we can do business with Cuba, only for cash, so while all the red farm states puff and vent hate for Cuba and now Obama for the handshake, they all sell wheat and corn to Cuba. Kansas sends a delegation every 2 or 3 years to keep the flow going. Boy are we tough.

See Conservatives know a Real American President would have socked Castro in the face, just like Ronnie Raygun did to Gorbachev when the Gipper punched that Commie so hard the Soviets fell out of Afghanistan.

Brilliant at Breakfast shows how Real Manly Men President's deal with Commie and other Dictators.

It's another case of Umbrella-Gate for the Right-Wing Nut Jobs.
