Barack Hussein said that the communist dictator was inspired by founding fathers.
He is either supremely stupid or evil. Either way, we are screwed. He always sides with evil. Always.
Obama: “Ho Chi Mihn was Inspired by the United States Constitution” By Daniel Greenfield, Front Page Magazine July 26, 2013
Ho Chi Minh was a Communist terrorist. President Truong Tan Sang, whom Obama is trying to win over, is a leading Communist.
We both reaffirmed the efforts that have been made to deal with war legacy issues. We very much appreciate Vietnam’s continued cooperation as we try to recover our Missing in Action and those that were lost during the course of the war. And I reaffirmed the United States’ commitment to work with Vietnam around some of the environmental and health issues that have continued, decades later, because of the war,” Obama said.
“Finally, we agreed that one of the great sources of strength between our two countries is the Vietnamese American population that is here but obviously has continued strong ties to Vietnam,” Obama said.
Much of America’s Vietnamese population came here as refugees. It’s like claiming that the Cuban community bonds us to Castro.
“At the conclusion of the meeting, President Sang shared with me a copy of a letter sent by Ho Chi Minh to Harry Truman. And we discussed the fact that Ho Chi Minh was actually inspired by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas Jefferson. Ho Chi Minh talks about his interest in cooperation with the United States. And President Sang indicated that even if it’s 67 years later, it’s good that we’re still making progress,” Obama said.
The message to Truman came in 1946. By then Ho Chi Mihn had long been a dedicated Communist and Soviet agent. At the time the letter was sent, Ho Chi Mihn was murdering his political opponents while trying to wheedle Truman into helping him out.

My son is currently in Vietnam... with a girlfriend who is highly educated. This is rare. Her parents were from the north and came south to Saigon after the war. Father was a teacher at university level, and went up the ladder.
I lived there for over a year, three years ago. While there I met some former South Vietnamese who were air force pilots. They did not get out, and sent to reeducation camps for about 10 years. Making charcoal. When they got out, they were given menial jobs.
They have a 300-400% duty on cars. You can see luxury cars on streets, that with duty can cost up to one million US dollars. Who owns them, surprise...government officials as like most Communist countries the leaders treat the treasury as their own.
At one point I met an English teacher who asked me to help with a student. The student was 12 years old, the son of a government official. My role was just to be conversational with him. Nice kid. In conversation he told me that he was in Saigon recently (Ho Chi Minh City of course). I asked him where he stayed, and he said Sofitel. And then made me crack up as he held up his hand and said... "5 stars" His father drove a Mercedes.
Average person making about $1000 USD a year. Education poor. They are industrious people and could have been at least at the level of Thailand.
I also met many Vietnamese there who are Americans visiting. They all do well, their children get educated here and get right up the ladder.
Too bad our Marxist president, does not know the evils of Communism having been raised by by Communists.
All of this is like a bad novel...
