Is Fidel Castro a closet Democrat?

Earlier in the week Fidel Castro was quoted in an Atlantic Monthly interview with Jeffrey Goldberg as saying that "The Cuban model doesn't even work for us anymore." Castro's statement caused quite a stir and many thought that at age 84 the former Cuban leader may have had a great awakening.

Acting every bit like a Democratic Party leader or a member of the Obama regime, Fidel has backed off his statement. It has been reported that during a speech at the University of Havana (the Harvard of Cuba) Castro said that "the reality is that my response means exactly the opposite." What Fidel meant to say is that capitalism does not work.

Apparently Goldberg got it wrong, the translation was incorrect, his remarks were taken out of context or maybe the dog ate his homework. Castro went on to say :

"My idea, as the whole world knows, is that the capitalist system now doesn't work either for the United States or the world, driving it from crisis to crisis, which each time are more serious."

Is it just me or does Fidel sound like Barry, Harry, Barney, Nancy or Rahm? Maybe he is just auditioning for a job in the Obama regime. Who knows, if Rahm leaves to run for Mayor of the People's Republic of Chicago that could open a door for a man with such vast public sector experience. Chief of Staff Fidel Castro, it does have a ring to it.

Since the break-up of the Soviet Union and the subsequent loss of Soviet funding, the weakness of the Cuban economy has been evident. Margaret Thatcher was right when she said that "the problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money." Modest changes have been introduced to try and stem the tide and Cuba is said to be looking for investment from foreign capitalists.
