    He should have listened to how things are going to change for the Cuban people before any positive steps are taken.
    Read the ****ing article! Castro talked for a half hour.

    Cuban communist leader lectures Obama for 30 minutes.

    Barack Obama apologized to Cuban president Raul Castro during their phone conversation after the American commander in chief's opening remarks. Speaking to reporters at his final White House press briefing of 2014 Friday afternoon, Obama gave more details about his phone call with the communist leader of Cuba earlier this week before the announcement of a change in U.S. policy on the Caribbean island nation.



    Obama began the phone call with Castro with what he described as 15 minutes of opening comments. It was the first conversation between the heads of state in both countries since 1961. "I apologized for taking such a long time," Obama said. Castro responded by reminding Obama that the American president was still young enough to beat Castro's brother, former Cuban president and revolutionary leader Fidel Castro, who once gave a 7-hour-long speech.

    Actually Obama should be apologizing to American citizens for doing such a poor job as president.

    And another who didn't read the article and doesn't have a clue what Obama was apologizing FOR.

    Notice that Hollery Klinton quickly jumped on the normalization bandwagon claiming she had fought for it all along. The truth is that she never gave it a thought but is thinking there is political benefit in going along with it.

    Is this it?
    Cuban-Americans nationwide are almost evenly divided over support for the embargo and for President Obama’s effort to normalize relations with Cuba, according to a new poll that shows a vast generational divide in reaction to this week’s historic announcement.

    The poll by Bendixen & Amandi International also showed that Cuban-Americans are nearly split on whether Obama should have exchanged prisoners Wednesday with Raul Castro’s communist government.

    But they strongly disapprove of Obama’s foreign policy overall and his approach to Cuba specifically, according to the poll of 400 Cuban-Americans conducted for The Miami Herald, El Nuevo Herald and the Tampa Bay Times.

    Among the strongest responses from Cuban-Americans: Whether the United States should remove Cuba from the State Department’s list of state sponsors of terror. That move is opposed by 60 percent, with only 22 percent in favor. The Obama administration is reviewing Cuba’s designation.

    Who? Is that a friend of yours or something?
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Factually correct, but pretty misleading.

    The AP version of the story is here (it's Newsday's site):

    Lots to say in historic Obama-Castro phone call - Newsday
    But you are forgetting that everything that happens involving Obama has to be portrayed in the most negative light possible. It's how they roll.
