    Fair is fair, regardless of who posted it.

    The OP did not, however, have any "unique content to spur discussion." So there's that.
    Indeed I did, Kobie, see my posts above.

    No need to get all drama llama. Sometime you need correcting, like after the elections last month.

    ... So Castro was pressuring Obama?

    So Obama caved to Castro because marxism pressured him? How did Marxism pressure him?

    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.

    OK Barry, you had me applauding you there, especially hearing the interview you did with CBC.,...great idea by the way, CBC is broadcast in Spanish directly into Habana, and is highly rated there.

    But this is sucking up.

    This is the typical and, I thought for a bit, the "old" you, milking the thing for the cheap points.

    Barry, Barry, Barry....can't you for just once, let the yeast rise on the bread before baking it? It was a great idea, whose time had come and was playing with right and left alike, perhaps the ONLY thing you've done that got so much approval home and abroad. A week ago if you'd come here we would have paid you the greatest Canadian insult and ignored you, today I thought you might want to think about running here.

    But you blew it, Barry, FFS.....

    Stand back now and be a statesman, let Harper and Castro enjoy a bit of the limelight, stop hogging it.

    BTW, I will believe your "apology" when you close Gitmo and give the land back to the people to whom it belongs. Carter gave back the Panama Canal going on four decades ago....

    Did you read the story? This is hardly "hogging the limelight."
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
