Bad news: Castro sours on Obama

Cuba’s former president wrote during one of the “reflections” he often publishes that the US public would be better off voting for a robot rather than Obama or any of the Republican candidates in the 2012 election race.

If faced with a choice between Obama, a Republican rival or a robot, “90 percent of voting Americans, especially Hispanics, blacks and the growing number of the impoverished middle class, would vote for the robot,” Castro said, according to the report.
