Florida Senator Marco Rubio regards himself as the nation’s number one expert on Cuba because his parents escaped from that land. Of course, he has not spent time in Cuba, but who has to devote efforts to leaning first hand about conditions in Cuba to regard himself as THE expert on this land which lies a hundred miles away from us. Marco is now furious at statements by fellow Republican Senator Rand Paul who is supporting the Obama action to establish diplomatic relations with Cuba. According to Marco, the Senator from Kentucky “has no idea what he is talking about when it comes to Cuba.. On the other hand, according to Rand Paul, the man from Florida is a “Cold War warrior” who fears dealing with the “brave new world of diplomacy.”
Heck, even Republican Senator Jake Flake from Arizona is hailing the Obama decision since it opens the door for billions of dollars in farm sales. Jake thinks it is “time to try something different.”Now wait a second, we have isolated Cuba for half a century and the Castro brothers still run it. Please give Marco another fifty years to try out his ideas!
