    "HAVANA (Reuters) - President Barack Obama is trying to make positive changes in the United States, but is being fought at every turn by right-wingers who hate him because he is black, former Cuban leader Fidel Castro said on Tuesday.

    In an unusually conciliatory column in the state-run media, Castro said Obama had inherited many problems from his predecessor, George W. Bush, and was trying to resolve them. But the "powerful extreme right won't be happy with anything that diminishes their prerogatives in the slightest way.""

    His argument is that the only reason people don't like Obama is because they are racist and every hardship Obama faces is all Bush's fault.

    Is this from Castro or is this an official release from the DNC? Its hard to tell. Both make identical arguments.
  2. Sounds like a NY Times or Washington Post editorial. Or one of their news stories, which are hard to distinguish from editorials.
  3. Castro is 100 % correct on this issue
