Eugene Delgaudio: "I hung Red Ho Chi Minh In Effigy, Obama Embraces Ho Chi Minh"
"On a hot Saturday morning in July of 1969, I joined some young teen conservatives in promoting an anti-Communist foreign policy in some public political theater. I hung then communist leader Ho Chi Minh in effigy at the United Nations and then later to news cameras and a large multitude at Central Park.
We found the leader of North Vietnam "guilty" of killing millions in South Vietnam and of attacking many young Americans serving in the U.S. Military.
Amazing how we have a President who favorablly compares this mass murderer to one of our founding fathers," says Eugene Delgaudio, president of Public Advocate.

Vietnam's infamous communist dictator Ho Chi Minh was "inspired" by Thomas Jefferson, the Declaration of Independence, and the United States Constitution, according to President Barack Obama.
And some think the president went too far with this claim.
Obama's remarks were made shortly after he met with Vietnam's President Truong Tan Sang Thursday morning to discuss finalizing a regional trade pact................
.............it was something the president said in his closing remarks that has certain news sites accusing him of "comparing" the communist dictator to Thomas Jefferson.
"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," President Obama said.
"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," he added.
And you know what? The president isn't entirely wrong.
