    Do you have a link to anything that supports this statement? Most people are for ending the embargo; however, it was instituted for a reason.

    Now why would the Republican Congress condemn JFK at this late date?
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Always wrong as part of a premise is the very definition of false-equivalency since it can't be quantified on this forum.
    Not to mention no link to a majority of Americans.
    Are you behind Rubio or Paul as a Republican voter ?

    And to think we haven't heard from US Conservative or joko104 about the stellar role the Pope played in these talks to open relations .

    Correct and I knew that. The "CIA" was Truman and it did come from FDR's OSS then CIG then CIA.

    Crappy poll is crappy.

    And no, it was the right choice then.
