George Bush wants to promote "democracy" in Cuba

Yes folks, you heard it right. Here is part of the report by the New York Times:

NEWPORT, R.I., June 28 — President Bush on Thursday raised the anticipated death of the dictator Fidel Castro as an opportunity to push for democracy in Cuba, which he called the “one nondemocracy in our neighborhood.”

“One day, the good Lord will take Fidel Castro away,” Mr. Bush said during remarks here at the Naval War College.

The audience reacted by laughing and clapping at what seemed to be a wink from Mr. Bush. But, in an apparent effort to dispel the notion that he was making light of Mr. Castro’s health, he hushed them, saying, “No, no, no,” and continued, “Then, the question is, ‘What will be the approach of the U.S. government?’

“My attitude is,” he said, “that we need to use the opportunity to call the world together to promote democracy as the alternative to the form of government they have been living with.”

Mr. Bush’s comments came in response to a question about his assessment of the situation in South America.

The Cuban people are extremely skeptical about the type of democracy that Bush -- and his buddies of the Cuban Mafia in Miami -- want to export to the Caribbean island. The last democracy in Cuba before the revolution was that of Fulgencio Batista, number one ass kisser of Uncle Sam. Is that the type of "democracy" Bush would want to return to Cuba? The Cuba people are going to say: "NO THANKS!"
