Dedicated To Restoring Our Government to Citizens' Control

Cagle Post: The Cuba Folly

Obama’s erratic quest to find a legacy to leave behind has reached a new low last week. His decision to begin talks with Cuba and normalize full diplomatic relations after 50 years is not only unprecedented, but extremely dangerous. Obama traded three Cuban spies for American Alan Gross who had been held captive in Cuba for nearly five years – the precedent set with this move is dangerous.

This naïve display by Obama sends the message to the rest of our enemies that if they are able to successfully capture an American citizen, they will be able to gain leverage in negotiations with America. Senator Marco Rubio, the son of Cuban immigrants, has been the resonating voice for Republicans on this issue, stating, “This entire policy shift […] is based on an illusion, based on a lie […] I’m committed to doing everything I can to unravel as many of these changes as possible.”

The fact that Obama is willing to negotiate with a dictator who has suppressed his people for so long is almost incomprehensible. There is absolutely no reason the United States should be involved with trying to speak reason to a tyrant regime. The Castro brothers undoubtedly have no intention of beginning to treat the citizens of Cuba in a humane manner, no matter what Obama thinks. This administration refuses to accept that it is impossible to reason with individuals or groups who do not think or act in a rational manner. Obama’s fantastical view of the world is so far detached from reality that it has only continued to weaken the United States on the world stage – almost to the point of irreparable damage.
