Note to White House: Castro's Victims Aren't Amused

Friday, December 19, 2014
On Wednesday, President Obama insisted that his policy concessions to the Castro dictatorship would not diminish the seriousness with which he would address human rights and democracy in Cuba.

That's pretty hard to believe.

Moreover, his White House Press Secretary, Josh Earnest, isn't helping him make the case.

When asked about the hypothetical of a visit to Cuba by President Obama, Earnest responded:

I certainly wouldn't rule out a presidential visit. Like many Americans, he has seen that Cuba is a place where they have a beautiful climate and a lot of fun things to do. (Laughter.) So, if there's an opportunity for the president to visit, I'm sure he wouldn't turn it down.”

Not very amusing to the victims of Castro's repression.
