Obama 'glad' to Meet Indian Communists

The Left may have staged protests during his visit but US President Barack Obama was “glad” to meet an Indian communist leader last evening.

“I am glad to meet an Indian communist. I am told that communists have been part of the (Indian) political mainstream,” Obama told CPM Politburo member Sitaram Yechury at the Rashtrapati Bhawan banquet as they were introduced and both shook hands.


Obama was "glad" to have met communist politicians on his trip to India, according to Indian news media accounts of the U.S. leader's visit to the Asian nation.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh hosted a state dinner Monday night with Obama and dozens of Indian politicians. According to media reports, the dinner consisted of 12 tables named after Americans with an Indian connection.

At the table with Obama was Pranab Kumar Mukherjee, India's minister for external affairs.

The Times of India reports Obama asked Mukherjee about the entry of communists in India into the parliamentary system.

Mukherjee reportedly pointed out that Indian communists were part of the mainstream in the country's political arena, like social democrats.

At the state dinner, Obama also reportedly shook hands with Sitaram Yechury, senior member of the Communist Party of India, or CPI.

According to India's Economic Times, Obama told Yechury he was "glad" to have met an Indian communist.

While the Indian communist met with Obama, he later criticized the U.S. president to the Indian media.

Yechury told reporters that Obama's address to Indian parliament contained "nothing tangible."


Wild Thing's comment........

Obama thinks this is a good thing and should be the case here. Of course one could argue since his election, it already is.

Communists have no business being part of the American mainstream no matter how hard Obama and his minions try mold themselves into the system.

Imagine if a couple of week ago you went to a Tea Party rally with a sign that read: “Obama is glad to meet foreign Communists”.

obama the Marxist was happy to meet Indian communists, but I bet they figured him for the lightweight fool he is.

obama tells everybody he is NOT a Socialist, and this is true. He's a fullfledged Communist.

He considers his own citizens enemies but not foreign communists?

I would hope that he's angling for a new job, over there. We couldn't be that lucky and as TomR points out, they can see through him like a pane of glass.

Tom, I bet they did too. The world must think our country has gone insane to elect this jerk. It has!
