    Just when I though Obama couldn't be any more of an incompetent fool, he goes and makes this utterly foolish announcement. This guy is more dangerous to our country than any weapon.

    I'm actually cautiously optimistic about this. We've had a rather odd relationship with Cuba ever since their fight for independence 100+ years ago but simple proximity makes some kind of normalization a matter of practicality.
    about time.

    Won't matter, it will still be drivel, no matter how you try to word it.

Cuba is indicating that they may be willing to take a similar path of gradual but meaningful change. We shouldn't ignore it and restoring diplomatic lines of communication is hardly a burdensome price to pay for the opportunity to influence the process of reforming a nation.


    So Rubio doesn't know what he is talking about. Probably due to him being Republican Right?

    Now what about Menendez? Are you going to say he doesn't know what he is talking about when BO peep went around his back on this issue too? Did you note that part about Menendez the Democrat telling Corker the Republican to hold Hearings on this matter.

    You are making more out of Burma than whats actually there.

Where is his outrage for the American people on those items? Sounds like all he cares about is illegals and what perks they should have.

    His outrage now seems to be that it's Cuba that's being discussed here. What's his problem with the US establishing diplomatic relations with Cuba? I don't hear him speaking on behalf of the Cuban people who have suffered from an economic embargo for 50 years. Why does he resent Cubans having the chance for a better life if sanctions are lifted?

    And why is he upset about trading spies for Gross? Obama traded five terrorist leaders for Bergdahl. Maybe I missed it, but I didn't hear any outrage from him on that.

    I don't think it so false Lady P. The outrage. BO peep did go behind his back.

    Plus the Demo Chris Smith came out and said the same as Rubio. That BO was playing enabler.

    All should be good now.....as BO said he was going to go and take his Vacation in Hawaii. This means he will be back out on the golf course.

    Where he can't do to much damage to the country.

    So, see there was some good to come out of it.

    As is usual, Obama went back on what he said earlier and, also as usual, Charles nails it. Krauthammer: US gave away 'huge bargaining chip' in Cuba changes | Fox News
