President Barack Obama, like his previous ten predecessors in the White House, does not want to recognize that the continuation of the Cuba blockade/embargo is what is really wrong with his Cuba initiatives, and therefore is trying to distract the American people with so-called new proposals that do not amount to a hill of beans.
I am in favor of people-to-people visits between Cubans and Americans, but if Barack Obama thinks that initiative is going to overthrow Cuban Socialism or that it is going to improve the lives of the Cuban people, then he really is not a very intelligent person.
The occupants of the White House are usually very arrogant. They think that they can give lectures to other countries. How wrong they are! Barack Obama is trying, unsuccessfully, to hide the fact that the community of nations, by a 184-3 vote at the U.N. have repeatedly condemned his genocidal blockade/embargo of the Cuban people.
What Barack Obama, if he is truly interested in peace, needs to do is to send a message to the U.S. Congress which asks them to lift the failed Cuba blockade/embargo.
I will not vote for any of the Democratic Party's Gang of 66 in November, and I will not vote for Barack Obama again. Want to continue the Cuba blockade/embargo? You lose my vote!
