Daniel Ortega on Barack Obama

First Che, now we have this news.

MANAGUA, Nicaragua: President Daniel Ortega, who led the 1979 revolution in Nicaragua, says Barack Obama's presidential bid is a "revolutionary" phenomenon in the United States.

"It's not to say that there is already a revolution under way in the U.S. ... but yes, they are laying the foundations for a revolutionary change," the Sandinista leader said Wednesday night as he accepted an honorary doctorate from an engineering university.

Dr. Taylor thought the 'sphre' would have a field day with this. So far only Redstate is commenting. Maybe the International Herald Tribune isn't widely read by conservative bloggers.

Daniel Ortega has changed a little since he first took power in the late 70's.

In statements broadcast on Sandinista Radio La Primerisima, Ortega said he has "faith in God and in the North American people, and above all in the youth, that the moment of great change in the U.S. will come and it will act differently, with justice and equality toward all nations."


Also Wednesday, Ortega gave approval to various army officials to receive training at the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation, operated by the U.S. Defense Department in Fort Benning, Georgia -- even as he said he would continue to lobby for the school's closure.

Ortega has found God and is sending troops to train in the US. Very remarkable and what is next? He'll come to Florida when he retires and play shuffleboard?

Yep, his conclusion is what first must be considered:

"A true revolutionary is guided by great feelings of love." -- Che Guevara

Revolutionary indeed.

I am your resident Nicaragu... (Below threshold)

I am your resident Nicaraguan, by marriage.

Here's the deal on Danny O.: he's an opportunist, and likely bipolar. One day he's screaming about the multinationals and savage capitalism, the next he's snuggling with our DEA representatives, or one of our diplomats bearing aid.

So, he's a whore--actually worse--he doesn't actually believe in anything, except his own power, and lining his and his followers' pockets.

The revolution only works for the "Vanguard," not for the Proletariat. Never will. So beware Obama for the same reason.
