    Yeah, this is as big a non-event has I've ever seen. Right on par with 'Surprise! Obama behaves properly at solemn event'.

    Anything to detract from the continued bad news of ObamaCare.
    ARe you saying Obama manufactured the outrage to distract?

    Round 1: Obama bows a feint to the front. Castro swings and misses, and his cigar falls out of his mouth. Nikita Kruschev rings the bell, and declares both candidates have knocked each other out. Ronald Reagan knocks Kruschev out. Breshnev moves in and kicks Reagan in the balls. Nancy Reagan knocks Breshnev out. Boris Yeltzin passes out dead drunk. And, finally, France surrenders. What a match!!

    Outrage? How about pointless pablum?

    No, Obama didn't manufacture anything.

    All Obama's supports and ObamaCare supporters are so desperate to change the subject (that would include the Biased Lame Stream Media) it would appear they are resorting to this to try and do so.

    Obama's shaking hands with Castro is about as much a non-events as was ever possible. Like 'So What'?

    I hope Obama doesn't try to bow and shake Mandela's hand.

    it's reactive thinking, it's outdated, it's counterproductive, and it's peculiar to Cuba, that we single them out for totalitaian regime.

    Boycott China???? Then why Cuba?
    Its reactive even 50 years later.

    Sorry, theres no real incentive for the US, its entirely to Cuba's benefit-Cuba has chosen to be ruled by totalitarian thugs, and so Cuba gets the consequences of being ruled by totalitarian thugs.

    Florida new Cubans ( born here, ) are typical Hispanic voters, in that they are more concerned with their contemporary life,
    then clinging to the Embargo
    Perhaps, then, one day we will actually normalize relations with Cuba. Of course, Castro will be long gone by then, Communism just a dusty page in a history book, and the cold war long forgotten.

    Yeah. Really.

    Then Obama's and the administration's repeat of the diversion of adding yet more useless and ineffective gun control laws. Never mind that the 3 or 4 highest gun crime cities in the country are long time Democratic / liberal / progressive strong holds.

    Not really. It's kind of dumb to make that assertion when so many presidents have done similar things with other heads of state.
