Now… Obama Wants to Prop Up Cuban Regime

We’re starting to get the picture on Obama’s foreign policy:

Friends- Bomb.
Foes- Coddle.

Today, Barak Obama blasted President Bush saying he “substitutes posturing for serious policy — and we have seen too much of that over the past six years.”

Evidently, freeing 50 million people from two of the world’s most brutal regimes is not enough for the freshman senator of Illinois.


So, in order to change all of that, Barak plans on sending cash and sitting down for talks with whoever’s in charge on the Island Paradise. Barak thinks a little coddling is the thing to do to get the ruthless dictatorship to open up to democratic reform. Here is Barak at the Miami Herald:

Accordingly, I will grant Cuban Americans unrestricted rights to visit family and send remittances to the island.

But as we reach out in some ways now, it makes strategic sense to hold on to important inducements we can use in dealing with a post-Fidel government, for it is an unfortunate fact that his departure by no means guarantees the arrival of freedom on the island.

Bilateral talks

Accordingly, I will use aggressive and principled diplomacy (talk) to send an important message: If a post-Fidel government begins opening Cuba to democratic change, the United States (the president working with Congress) is prepared to take steps to normalize relations and ease the embargo that has governed relations between our countries for the last five decades.

Gee, that ought to help passify the evil motives of the monsters in charge.

The Cuban-Americans at Babalu are not amused.

Either is Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen who said, via Babalu:

“It’s sadly interesting that some who had spoken so passionately and loudly in favor of a strong and international full embargo against the horrible apartheid government in South Africa and the despotic military junta in Haiti now wish to economically engage with the brutal Castro communist regime. Are the Cuban people less deserving of freedom, human rights and equality?”
