The suggestion that Cuban Americans need to be 'stood up to' is insulting... Our nation is great because we were built on a foundation of freedom and democracy. That is not true in Cuba and we should not pretend it is. The importance of maintaining the embargo is that it stands for the Cuban people's right to be free.
-- Rick Scott, Governor of Florida, on opponent Charlie Crist's response to HBO's Bill Maher that Cuban-Americans should be "stood up to" and the U.S. end the embargo, CNN, 2/8/14
