    Opening the door to Cuba is a step forward bringing them presents is Christmas.

    Republicans/Fox “news” viewers would like to invade Cuba. I mean, Castro almost got nucular weapons in 1962. And we’d be treated as liberators. And it would be over in six weeks, tops. And it would pay for itself.

    And we’d only need to station troops there for 70 years. Or so.

    Presidential aspirants Marco Rubio and Cruz think the embargo is working and that an independent country requires U.S. approval to end what amounts to human rights abuses; the good Christian Reverend Huckabee thinks the Cubans should continue to be subservient to the U.S. and that Obama is making a terrible mistake for wanting to improve conditions for the Cuban people. Jeez, Obama is knocking off the wannabee candidates one by one as being unfit for leadership, and he’s not even running.

    “Presidential aspirants Marco Rubio and Cruz think the embargo is working and that an independent country requires U.S. approval to end what amounts to human rights abuses”

    And yet he doesn’t think that same standard should apply to our “most favored nation” trading partner, China.

    “Whatever it was, I’d started to think there might exist some suffering people who had NOT brought it upon themselves, and who might therefore be WORTHY of some help, some help from US, the larger group. I knew it was wrong, I knew I was pushing away the woman I loved (Ayn Rand) —but somehow I couldn’t help it. I was young, I was confused…”

    Stick your principles, Mark. The voters NEED to know what you think BEFORE they vote, not afterwards, when you’re in the White House prepping for All Out War in the Caribbean.

    Obama’s policy toward Cuba hasn’t done a thing to improve the lot of the Cuba people that the liberals pretend to revere so much. That would require real concessions like freedom of speech that would take real work to negotiate.

    It is obvious the Cuban sanctions have not worked in 50 years. You have to really be braindead to think progress was being made. Tourism and trade will end up moving the populace towards democracy. We should have done it 25 years ago. It is the long game as opposed to gunboat diplomacy which backfires in the long run and costs a lot of lives and money.

    But wasn’t Kennedy a Democrat? I guess re-writing history is in the liberal DNA.

    Do you really think the President has that much power and control? At long last, let’s be satisfied with a step in the right direction.

    “Tourism and trade will end up moving the populace towards democracy.”

    Perhaps not as much as you would think. Canadians, Europeans, and Latin Americans have been using Cuba as a tourist destination for decades with no appreciable change in the Cuban government.

    Only Nixon could go to China, maybe only Obama could go to Cuba. Time will tell if the time was right or not.
