Obama Sends (Love) Letter To The Castros

From those fans of dictators of all stripes at Reuters:

Ecuador’s Vice President Lenin Moreno Garces (L) puts a medal thanking Cuba for medical help to Ecuador on former Cuban President Fidel Castro in Havana during a meeting October 20, 2009.

Obama asked Spain to deliver message to Cuba: report

MADRID (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama asked Spain to send Cuba a message about reform when he met Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero earlier this month, the newspaper El Pais reported on Sunday.

Six days after their meeting on October 13 at the White House, Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos visited the Caribbean island and met President Raul Castro.

"Have (Moratinos) tell the Cuban authorities we understand that change can’t happen overnight, but down the road, when we look back at this time, it should be clear that now is when those changes began," Obama told Zapatero, according to diplomatic sources quoted by El Pais.

"We’re taking steps, but if they don’t take steps too, it’s going to be very hard for us to continue," Obama said.

Obama has pledged a "new beginning" in ties with Cuba as part of a new era of U.S. partnership and engagement with Latin America and the Caribbean…

Moratinos met Castro on October 19 and said the communist leader had affirmed his commitment to economic reform and expressed his desire to continue improving relations with the United States…

It should be clear that Mr. Obama is more than willing to meet the Castros half way.

Painfully clear.

    Soon, we will be enjoying the wonderful Health Care system that our dear friend Fidel has pioneered in Cuba.

    We can only hope that it is “mandatory” for Michael Mounds.

    “U.S. President Barack Obama asked Spain to send Cuba a message ..”

    What!?!? Castro and his little play bitch, o-blah-blah, having a little love spat and not talking?!? Gotta have Mr Spain pass on his little love letter.

  3. Nothing could be worse for Casto than ending the embargo! Once the Cuban people see Miami, they are going to revolt. If only Castro can wait a few years, while the US economy slides down to Cuban levels, then he will be able to make peace.

    Sigh….is Obama worse than Carter yet?

    I’m having a hard time imagining Carter was this bad (I wasn’t around at the time).

    Yep, cozy up to Cuba. Same guy who wanted a nuclear war in the United States. Yep, protecting our interests here and abroad. The Soviet Union may be gone but that’s no reason to emulate Castro and his communist government.

      Beauty, the boy passed Carter before he even showed up here and he’s gaining speed; Only thing I’ve ever witnessed that actually approaches the speed of light.

    • proreason says:

      There’s no comparison between Carter and the boy wonder.

      Carter is simply a misguided idiot, a bigot, an anti-semite and a self-justifying zealot.

      The boy wonder is the most dangerous person to appear on earth in 80 years.

      Just look at how far he has pulled the US down in 9 short months. Carter wasn’t there in 4 years, and would never have gone as far. Carter doesn’t hate his country.

    Bah let it all happen..our best years were during the years of the Cold War, we flexed our muscles, we huffed our flaming dragons’ breath and we had balls o’ freakin titanium! We are going to get a real arse whoopin before any of this gets turned around IF it ever does…in the meantime we must deal with flexing our butt muscles, enjoying the minty freshness of our breath and tap on our enemies windows with our ravishingly beautiful polished and manicured nails…don’t forget to “flitter” those long lashes!
