Obama Vows to Keep Insipid Cuba Embargo In Place

Idiot.
That’s because, as the Republicans, White nationalists and Far Right insist, the guy’s a fucking Communist! No, wait, a socialist. No, wait, any socialist worth his salt would have chucked this BS long ago.
I’m having a hard time figuring what the game plan is here. The Embargo has always been about US politics. Do the Dems really still need Florida to win the Presidency? What happens if they lose Florida? Do they lose? The Cuban Lobby is one kickass ethnic lobby, kind of like the Jewish Lobby. As Cuban policy has been always held hostage to this fanatics, so US Middle East policy has always been held hostage the Jewish fanatics.
With the Cubans, it’s always been about electoral votes. They have said that if we don’t back their nonsense, they have enough power in Florida to throw the vote to the other candidate.
Americans are more sensible, but not by much. I haven’t read any recent figures, but polls taken in the past decade showed that 53% of Americans supported lifting the embargo. The fact that so many Americans are still behind this embargo insanity shows what the power or propaganda is all about.
This is very much a White thing. The Cuban exiles are Whites, and it’s Whites who always backed the stupid embargo. Blacks and non-Cuban Hispanics are generally hostile to it, and your average Mexican is pro-Cuban. The Mexican and Cuban governments have had a long alliance, based on the fact that Mexico’s PRI was originally a revolutionary party. On similar grounds, the PRI was allied with the Salvadoran revolutionaries, the FMLN.

  1. Since when have the Florida Cubans ever voted Democratic anyway? I just don’t get it. I say let them scream. If they get too loud and violent, ship them back to Uncle Fidel in leaky boats.

  2. Mort, it is probably not so much about getting a majority of Cubans to vote Dem (hopeless) but more about say keeping the Repubs from getting X % of votes. With, say, 80-90% of Cubans voting Repub, maybe things look bad for Dems. At 65% Cubans voting Repub, maybe things look more doable for Dems.

    I think your analysis is correct .. as you basically state.. it’s a political ploy.. that said … it is my understanding that the younger generation of Cuban Americans lean towards the Democrats.
