    This is a bald-faced publicity stunt. Shame on the "junior" (and not just in tenure terms) Senator from the "great" state of Texas.

    As someone who thinks the embargo is about 40 years past it's need, I can still recognize and understand the castro family and their control of the island still being a hot issue for Cuban-Americans.

    Cuban-Americans are a small but vocal demographic who are highly concentrated in a volatile district in a volatile swing state. I understand their desire to stick it to Castro, but enough is enough. The main reason the embargo hasn't ended yet is that neither party wants to lose Miami-Dade. The consternation over a handshake with Castro has literally nothing to do with Communism.

    Here's just a couple of examples from his speech when he "spoke about himself".

    Yeah, while Mandela forgave, Obama is busy trying to stick it to whitey with his social justice agenda. He's a ****ing racist hypocrite. Benefited from Mandela's struggle, my ass.

    Honestly, it's like they're reading a completely different speech.

    If you actually bothered to read or listen to the speech, which I'd bet actual currency you did not, he never compared himself to Mandela. That said, this "Obama is a racist" meme is moronic. Anyone who honestly believes that, quite frankly, really doesn't know what the hell they're talking about.

    SO WHAT? One thing people do during eulogies is reflect on the deceased's effect on their lives. And several of those "I"s were "how can I be better," or along similar lines.

    Seriously, this is ridiculous. It's like you guys aren't even trying anymore, you're just spraying diarrhea against a wall and seeing what doesn't get washed off by the first light rain.

    No, he said he benefitted from Mandela. And if he did, he wouldn't be on this type of social justice crusade that he's on, to redistribute the misery in this country. Everything he does and says is about putting it to the rich....the rich being white. I'm sorry, but I'm done with Obama. It's one thing to try to help your people, it's another to try to so transform a country as to subvert the pure intent of its founding principles. Just because it took a long time for those principles to come to everyone, doesn't make them wrong.
