"Is it not obvious that the worst of all is the absence in the White House of a robot capable of governing the United States and preventing a war that would end the life of our species?" Castro wrote, according to AFP.
Cuba's former president wrote during one of the "reflections" he often publishes that the US public would be better off voting for a robot rather than Obama or any of the Republican candidates in the 2012 election race.
If faced with a choice between Obama, a Republican rival or a robot, "90
percent of voting Americans, especially Hispanics, blacks and the
growing number of the impoverished middle class, would vote for the
robot," Castro said, according to the report.
Castro accused Obama of being "hopelessly immersed in seeking re-election," AFP reported.
He also said that many of the Republican candidates for the presidency
"carry with them more nuclear weapons than ideas for peace."
