Fifty More Years of Cuban Dictators? Under Obama, Perhaps Not
Obama is taking heat from McCain for rejecting the conventional wisdom of not doing anything new to our Cuba policy. Leave it as is, I'm sure some have told him. Don't upset those Cubans in South Florida (so many electoral votes!). Don't upset anyone. Period.
But he is challenging the ridiculous idea that, since the last fifty years of not negotiating with Cuba resulted in zero changes in their government and its practices, another fifty years might as well be tried, too. Thank God. Someone had to.
