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."
Obama does not want to change the U.S. political and economic system, but "in spite of that, the extreme right hates him for being African-American and fights what the president does to improve the deteriorated image of that country," Castro wrote.
"I don't have the slightest doubt that the racist right will do everything possible to wear him down, blocking his program to get him out of the game one way or another, at the least political cost," he said.
Castro, who writes regular commentaries for Cuba's state-run media, has criticized Obama, complimented him occasionally and said that he is watching him closely to see if he means what he says about changing U.S. policy toward Cuba.
His latest column comes during a visit to Cuba by New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson that has stirred speculation that he may try to push U.S.-Cuba relations forward.
Richardson has been a diplomatic trouble-shooter in nations with which the United States has poor relations. In 1996 he negotiated with Castro for the release of three Cuban political prisoners.
Obama has said he wants to end 50 years of hostilities between the United States and Cuba and has eased the long-standing U.S. trade embargo against the communist-led island.

He’s not dead yet?
If there was anything "conciliatory" in that statement, somebody please point it out.
This is encouraging
Fidel, like you, Obama can make every damn change he wants with his one party rule despite the white racists opposing him, so get a Marxist clue.
OH shut up and die already!
Fidel, Fidel...your country is crying out for.... TOILET PAPER. Forget the propaganda Fidel and solve your problems at home.

“Cash-strapped Cuba says toilet paper running short”
I know. Most probably made a deal with satan himself.
Uncle Fidel knows a fellow traveller when he sees one.
Well, if anyone knows about Oslimebo, it would be a dirt ball like castro!!!
Hey Fidel, why isn’t there a groundswell of rage at Michael Steele then? He’s eight times blacker than Obama!
And vice versa(since FDR’s day)!
Fidel Castro was a rich, privileged White guy who overthrew the Black President of Cuba, Fulgencio Batista. Does he REALLY want to go there ?
Fidel Castro there are so many articles on the internet about your toilet paper shortage. Let’s look at this one:
“Fidel Castro and the people’s toilet paper”

SNIPPET: “Cuba, which in 1959 was violently changed from an oppressive thug-ocracy into, well, another thug-ocracy, only with longer speeches and more efficient firing-squads, is currently suffering from a shortage of toilet paper.
The shortage of premium wipe might be explained by the publication of Fidel Castro’s latest book, a 339-page Fidel Castro dictionary from which scholars m ay choose Fidel Castro’s favorite words and=2 0Fidel Castro’s favorite phrases in order to think and write the way Fidel Castro and the Fidel Castro government want them to.
No word yet on whether the phrase “died of a heart attack while trying to escape an end-of-life counseling center” is in Fidel Castro’s latest gift to civilization and scholarship.”
Well said. You beat me to it.
Yes, I think he does FieldMarshalJ.
Thank you Jet Jaguar.
What a screwed up world.
Well continuing on...
Read this whole article as excerpting doesn’t do it justice.

“Opinion | Juanes naive?”
BY NINOSKA PEREZ-CASTELLON
SNIPPET: “Talked to Clinton
He wanted me to know he had met with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. I reminded him that the other Clinton (the former president) thought that calibrated steps and cultural exchanges would change Castro’s criminal nature.
Fidel Castro responded by shooting down two civilian airplanes as they flew in international airspace. Four young men were pulverized by Castro’s MiGs, three were American citizens. I hung up thinking that Juanes was a dreamer, a reflection of his songs.”
This sounds like it’s from the DNC
Howard Dean better watch out, somebody’s after his job
Well, Fidel, let’s go over to Maine in the U.S.A. and see what’s happening there.

“Maine woman wins lawsuit against Cuba
$21 million awarded in death of father”
By Walter Griffin
BANGOR DAILY NEWS FILE PHOTO BY LINDA COAN O’KRESIK
SNIPPET: “BELFAST, Maine A Maine court has found the Republic of Cuba guilty of the wrongful death of an American veteran believed to have been shot down while on a covert mission over the island decades ago.
In finding in favor of Stockton Springs resident Sherry Sullivan, Waldo County Superior Court Justice Jeffrey Hjelm granted her damages of $21 million plus interest. Sullivan is the daughter of Geoffrey Sullivan, whose plane is believed to have disappeared over Cuba in October 1963.
Im just overwhelmed, Sullivan said Wednesday. It was never about money; it was to find out what happened to my father. The answer to finding my father is not what I got.
Sullivan filed her suit against Cuba in May 2007. Also named were former President Fidel Castro, President Raul Castro and the Cuban army.”
Oh, I so totally missed these, Fidel Castro:
First, let’s look at this toilet paper with your photo on it Fidel (There’s probably a slogan to go with it somewhere.):
...and now I’m ending by posting this SNIPPET of a commentary:
NO CRAP! Cuba is Running Out Of Toilet Paper

Many people on the side of single-payer heath care praise the health care system of Cuba. For example just last month:
Actor Terrence Howard cited Communist Cubas health care system as a good example of providing care for all people in contrast with health care in the United States, which he said was inadequate and resulted in people dying unnecessarily because of the costs for certain treatment and lack of access to doctors.
Well, whats interesting is were level with third world countries in poverty but some of these third world countries still have individuals they have a health care system you can go to Cuba and have anything done even if youre not a Cuban citizen, Howard told CNSNews.com in reference to President Barack Obamas plan for government-run health care.
Let me ask just one little question, how good can Cuban heath care be if the country is about to run out of one of the basics of personal hygiene, Toilet Paper:

Go slink back under the rock you crawled out from under, Fidel.
Obviously it must be a relative term. As in he didnt say the “powerful corrupt racist extreme right will hate and fight against anything that reduces the lberties guaranteed by their perverted constitution”.
This is what the media calls a “softening attitude”.
It says even more when an "American" (Anti-American) "President" (Fascist Dictator Thug in Chief) supports Communist dictators.
Fidel should go to a life counselor to see if he is worth keeping alive.
Once again, it’s really difficult to differentiate what a communist tyrant thinks from what your typical Democrat talking head thinks. Much in the same way messages from Osama bin Laden read like talking points from the DNC. Funny how all of America’s enemies think alike.
I'm sure he was getting a tingle up his leg when he wrote the article, but it sounds like he just got his hands on a copy of Obama’s Weekly Radio Address.
Zero may push for Holder to appoint Castor oil as the special prosecutor.
Right, just as President Bush was trying to make positive changes in the United States, but was fought at every turn by left-wingers who hated him because he is white.
Hey Obama, how about endorsing the views of your pal Castro. Make it very public how much Fidel likes you and wants to keep you in power.
Fidel Castro - Obama’s new Political Correctness Czar!
I am thrilled to accept such a ringing endorsement from Comrade Fidel. If he feels a need to lash out at us, we must be doing something right.
I see that Fidel is among those who are emailed the Rat talking points.
Fidel has got Obama’s back.
“President Barack Obama is trying to make positive changes in the United States....” - Castro
If you’re a Communist dictator what would be considered “positive change in the United States”?
The Cmmunists think Obama is a Communnist, why shouldn’t we?
Someone please post the No whining baby! PLEASE!
Fidel supports Obozo out of professional courtesy.
From one dictator to another.
He has already been promised that we will give GITMO back to him as soon as we relocate those pesky terrorists we house there.
Honestly, I never expected to be personally insulted by Fidel Castro. It’s sort of an unexpected treat, IMO.
I guess he listens to CNN and CBS on a daily basis.
I checked in Obama’s book of choice, the VA Death Book, and it says Fidel Castro is a waste of scarce resources and should quit breathing immediately!
pssst, Fidel. You forgot, you are supposed to be critical of Obama so people think you are not the same as him. Like Hugo does.
I want to be friends you racists!
One thing the whole political discussion is doing, is laying bare as valueless these racial hoaxes.
Obama must be very pleased to have Senor Castro in his corner.
Fidel is a right winger compared to Obama
