President Obama stopped to shake hands with Cuban President Raul Castro today at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service. Some are calling into question the handshake given the long history of distrust between the U.S. and Cuban governments.

Radio talk show host Michael Graham acknowledged that it’s the president’s job to deal with unpleasant people. However, he said, “I would say unless he’s going to talk about Alan Gross, the American who has been held there for four years, […] that would be something to chat about.

Fox News contributor Jehmu Greene countered, “It wasn’t a conversation; it wasn’t a diplomatic meeting. It was a handshake.”

On a day spent remembering a man who brought people together, Greene said we should ask ourselves, “What would Nelson Mandela do? […] We can’t also forget that there are so many families who have been separated by 90 miles of water.”

Bill Hemmer interjected, “There are a lot of those families who would tell you it’s the Castros who separated them.”

    The moron liberals in the media, all praise the hand shake as a good thing and all hope it brings peaceful relationships with Cuba. The liberals in America, all call it a good thing and claim Obama is the leader of the free world, offering friendship, with Cuba… So both are delusional and always will defend Obama, no matter what Obama does, it doesn’t matter to them, Castro is a tyrant, killer and devout marxists, that hates America and will for life..

    Nah, it was raul’s fault.

    Just like the rest of us, Obama didn’t find out about it until he heard about in the news. One would think the President of the United States would have better choreography assistance to avoid such awkward encounters. But then our preezy of the united steezy is just trippin’ freestyle, like a brother would…

      Oh, yeah, another “fake crisis,” just like the other hundred times (this month) he was caught doing something really stupid. That’s our president, “Clown Extraordinaire”
