U.S. will Restore Diplomatic Relations with Cuba
For the first time in over fifty years, the United States will restore diplomatic relations with Cuba and open an embassy in Havana. Whoa! You mean we's gonna be tradin' with them there Comminists?!? Next stop, 21st century!
President Obama announced:
“We will end an outdated approach that for decades has failed to advance our interests and instead we will begin to normalize relations between our two countries.” He said the agreement will “begin a new chapter among the nations of the Americas” and move beyond a “rigid policy that is rooted in events that took place before most of us were born.”
Senator Marco Rubio (R—Token) got his panties in a bunch, whimpering that there will be no funding for Obama's new policy, no lifting of the trade embargo and that no ambassador to Cuba will ever be confirmed:
“I’m committed to doing everything I can to unravel as many of these changes as possible.”
