    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.

    I do not think that an apology is due or helpful to American security.

    Read the article.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    This "story" by the Weekly Substandard should be a case study of how conservative media misleads its devoted followers.

    If Obama and the Cuban leader meet, do you think Obama will bow to kiss his cigars?

    Most "low info" voters don't go to the Weekly Standard, or really any sort of politically based media.

    The real "low info" voters are the people who consume NO MEDIA AT ALL. And those voters are endemic among both party bases.

    Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, Daily Kos, New Republic, National Review, Wall Street Journal ... at least they're getting SOMETHING. Even if 90% of it is bull.

    The true "low info" voters are the people who just show up completely blind. And that's enough of a percentage of both bases that I really think they cancel each other out.

    For every "Obamaphone" youtube video, I can find you a conservative asshole in my neighborhood who doesn't know dick and will vote for a Republican just because.

    But that's your opinion.

    I happen to believe the low info voters are tied to one sided media source without looking at what others have to say, you know, like people who listen to Rush or Faux News all day long, become worked up and incensed so much, they come to forums with itchy typing fingers and repeat what they just heard for the past three hours.

    You know this apologist stuff comes from somewhere. When it's repeated enough over the air waves and cablevision, people really begin to believe the stuff they hear, as biased and untrue as it might be, now that's low info, or, misinformed.

    Did Obama not just appease a commie dictator by opening relations with him? Because I swear that just happened, kobie.
