Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro delivered a valedictory speech Tuesday to the Communist Party that he put in power a half-century ago, telling party members he will soon die and exhorting them to help his ideas survive.

Not soon enough

I just love Obozo went there to pal around with the Castros and they turn on him. Funny stuff it were not so....
He will have likely outlasted eleven presidents. Americans have long idolized Castro, but many were too shy to say so.
Mugabe and Castro make me think there may be some truth in that old expression: “Only the good die young”.
Die soon? Did POSOTUS offer you, Obamacare?
$10 says Obama makes Fidels dream come true and gives him Guantanamo before he dies
