Fidel Castro Said It's a Pure Mirracle Obama is Still Alive


Former Cuban president, Fidel Castro stated that it's a pure miracle that Barack Obama is still alive. He was amazed that the US Democratic presidential candidate has not been assassinated.

Castro highly criticized racism in the United States and mentioned that Obama had little chances of winning the election. Castro's opinion comes in contradiction with the opinion polls that show that people are more like to vote for Obama.

"Profound racism exists in the United States. Millions of whites cannot reconcile in their minds with the idea that a black man with his wife and children would move into the White House, which is called just like that – White," wrote former Cuban president in a commentary posted on Cubadebate website.

Castro said that Barack Obama is a politician who "has the habit of looking at his opponent with serenity and laughing at his rhetorical attacks". He also mocked the poor grades that John McCain had while at the naval academy. In addition, Castro wrote that the Sarah Palin "knew nothing at all about anything".

It is worth mentioning that according to results of a Monday Washington Post-ABC News opinion poll, Obama leads McCain by 53% to 43%.
