Sen. Orrin Hatch Responds to President’s Cuba Announcement

“The President’s decision to begin talks to normalize relations with Cuba is another example of his administration’s habit of appeasing our adversaries”

Washington, D.C., — Senator Orrin G. Hatch, Senior Republican in the United States Senate, issued the following statement following the President’s announcement that he would seek to normalize relations with Cuba:

“The President’s decision to begin talks to normalize relations with Cuba is another example of his administration’s habit of appeasing our adversaries. Time and again, President Obama has predicated his foreign policy on the notion that if we simply accommodate the demands of troublesome regimes, they will cease their disturbing behavior.

Even more disturbing, the President’s announcement constitutes a fundamental shift from our decades old policy, reaffirmed by both Republican and Democrat administrations, to isolate the Cuban regime due to its repression of the Cuban people.  It is beyond doubt that the Cuban regime continues to stifle democracy and violate fundamental human rights.  Like many of my colleagues, I remain committed to a Cuba policy that continues to place pressure on the Castro regime until the Cuban people are free.”

 

Cuba Rejoices While Republicans Burn.

"LMFAO"

 

Republicans are gnashing their white dentures up & down;

Obama’s made of Cuba a real country, not a clown.

No longer will the country serve as awful bugaboo,

But soon Havana will receive the grand red, white and blue!

 

The Democrats will take full credit for this change of pace

And use it to advantage in the presidential race.

While Rubio and others predict nothing but dark doom

As part of the stern platform for their electioneering boom.

 

It won’t affect the Cubans much; they don’t vote anyways.

They still are waiting for a Castro’s dream of better days.

So while the hoopla grows for Uncle Sam’s superb routines,

The heirs to revolution would be thankful for some beans.
