Viva Carter!
Has a U.S. President ever given a speach to the people in a foreign country in their native language? I know I'm a bit late on this one but Jimmy Carter's trip to Cuba and his amazing address to the Cuban people (CNN story here.) Is unprecedented on so many levels. Normalizing relations with Cuba can only benefit the Cuban people. Do you think Castro is going to fold if we keep it up just a few more years? In the mean time we're missing an opportunity to engage the Cuban people and do some business with a very close neighbor. Of course the Bush administration reaction is predictable and obviously motivated by the large block of Florida's large Cuban Ex-pat population. Those Bush boys need to take care of each other.
