Why do terrorists, Communists and radicals keep endorsing Obama?

Presidential candidates usually collect the endorsements of governors, senators and aldermen. But Obama is getting the backing of thug after thug on the international scene. Castro became the latest when, in an article in the Cuban government organ Granma, he gave the Democratic front-runner the closest thing to an endorsement the communist despot has ever bestowed.

Castro called Obama, "this man who is doubtless, from the social and human points of view, the most progressive candidate to the U.S. presidency." He also oddly conceded what the effect of his praise would be: "Were I to defend him, I would do his adversaries an enormous favor."

This comes after Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega praised Obama and his political allies as "laying the foundations for a revolutionary change" in America.

Then there's the seized laptop of Raul Reyes, warlord with Colombia's Marxist-Leninist FARC narcoterrorist group slain in an army raid in March. It contained Reyes' cheery report of some "gringos" he met assuring him that Obama would be the next president.

Data on Reyes' computer also implicated Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez as supporting FARC as it tries to overthrow Colombia's government. Can we guess from all this who Chavez himself would like to see in power in Washington? And let's not forget the chief political adviser to Hamas' Gaza leader Ismail Haniyeh remarking, "We like Mr. Obama, and we hope he will win the election." By contrast, Obama rival John McCain was blasted by Castro earlier this year when the Arizona senator reiterated claims made in his memoirs of Cuban Communists torturing U.S. POWs in Hanoi.

Update:

Al Qaeda's endorsement for McCain is not really an endorsement is it. They are not "for" him like these other terrorists, Communists and radicals are truly for Obama.

    One need only look at Obama's past associations (friends and mentors included) to see why radicals, terrorists and Communists back him...his past is littered with all these types of thugs: Ayres, Rezko, Wright, Pfleger, Odinga, Khalidi, Mansour, Dohrn, etc., etc. Besides, Obama was endorsed by, and has ties to, the socialist New Party. So, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, well, odds are that it's a duck and they're all in a row...endorsing one of their own.

    Let's see. Colin Powell a terrorist? Warren Buffet a radical? NY Times a bunch of anarchists? Former Bush press secretary Scott McClellan a terrorist? All of them and many more endorsing Obama. The Repub-LIE-CON party won't con us again with their lies. Nice try ... NOT! Obama/Biden '08

    Isn't it obvious? Oh yeah, the death of common sense has blinded the brainless masses; it's because birds of a feather flock together or because he is of the same school of thought, cut from the same cloth....or you can insert your own Gumpism that states the obvious in a manner of your choosing.

    Because certain groups usually tend to stick together.

    I can't wait to see the backlash this question receives. I'm willing to be you, me, and others get reported.

    The best candidate for this country is also the best candidate for the world.

    Please don't ever think that I would agree with an ignorant lunatic such as yourself, but perhaps the reason "terrorists hate America" is because we treat the rest of the world like crap. Maybe these "terrorists" really would rather we just stopped treating them like crap.
