As Twitchy reported, President Obama received a rousing endorsement from Cuba’s Raul Castro, with whom he shared a handshake and a brief exchange of words at the Summit of the Americas last night. Castro declared Obama to be “an honest man” and spoke of his admiration for Obama’s “humble” beginnings as recounted in his autobiography.

There always has to be a party pooper, though, and Code Pink’s Medea Benjamin and others managed to track down some less-than-flattering comments by Bolivian President Evo Morales, who reportedly questioned Obama’s moral authority when it comes to preaching the merits of democracy.

Venezuela’s Nicolás Maduro managed to temper his comments, taking President Obama and his policies to task while at the same time noting that he personally is not anti-American.
