Do you agree with cuban assessment of obama in Copenhagen

Top Cuban official says Obama lied in Copenhagen

By WILL WEISSERT, Associated Press Writer Will Weissert, Associated Press Writer – 53 mins ago

HAVANA – Cuba's foreign minister called President Barack Obama an "imperial and arrogant" liar Monday for his conduct at the U.N. climate conference, a reflection of the communist island's increasingly fiery verbal attacks on the U.S. government.

Bruno Rodriguez spent an hour and a half lambasting Obama's behavior in Copenhagen, telling a news conference, "at this summit, there was only imperial, arrogant Obama, who does not listen, who imposes his positions and even threatens developing countries."

He called the summit "a fallacy, a farce" and said Washington used back-room deals and strong-arm tactics to foist on the world a deal that he labeled "undemocratic" and "suicidal" because it urges — but does not require — major polluters to make deeper emissions cuts.

  • I agree that their statement on Obama applies to many of the western country leaders there.

    Despite being no fan of Obama, I don't think he was any of those things any more so than other leaders also present at the convention.

    I thought for a minute that he was talking about the health care farce, and wondered why in the world Cuba would care about that!!

  • I think that Rodriguez should have been smart enough to know the difference between "imperial" and "imperious," as in  "imperious and arrogant" before he promoted himself as an authority of any kind about the power that our prez has in these matters.

  • People thought Obama would be the great peacemaker, and all the other countries would love him.  WRONG.

    This is an AP article, and no one answered prior to you. Your answer is a real leap, and pretty stupid, IMO.
