Obama: I Spoke With & Joked With Raul Castro (Video)

Barack Obama held his year end press conference before going on his mult-week vacation in Hawaii.
During the presser Obama admitted his spoke with and joked with Raul Castro, the communist tyrant from Cuba.
Obama spoke about his conversation with tyrant Raul Castro.

My opening comments took about 15 minutes which is an awful long time on the phone. At the end of that he said, “Mr. President, you’re still a young man.” I apologized for taking such a long time before we engaged in a conversation. You’re still a young man and you still have a chance to break Fidel’s record which is seven hours straight… And then President Castro delivered his own opening remarks which lasted twice as long as mine. And, I said, “It obviously runs in the family.”

Raul Castro said, “President Obama deserves respect and recognition.”
