At Least Congressman Meek Gets it When it Comes to Cuba

Read it here.

And he ain't a right wing intransigent .... so what's wrong with the rest of the hard left?  Too much time on the bong?

Well what do you expect from a bunch of wankers who seem to be more interested in the President's new dog.

    This would only be truly meaningful if Meek didn't have any need, now or in future, for the Cuba-American vote.

  • Perhaps, but House members are supposed to represent their constituency. At least on this issue, he's not being another yes man to the Obamaniacs or the Congressional Red Caucus.

  • asombra

    I agree Meek should represent his constituency, but the question remains, if he didn't need the Cuban-American vote, what tune would he be singing? Maybe it's a moot point, but speaking for myself, I'm way past giving politicians the benefit of the doubt.

  • theCardinal

    The situation is this...he didn't have to say anything and he did. If he kept his mouth shut it would not have mattered too much since no one is really asking him to pipe up. The fact that he did shows that he is aware of Cuban-Americans and what they for the most part believe - you can't say that for everyone in our delegation.

  • I'll take it a step further...Meeks is already not on the best terms with Democrat leadership because of his lack of overt support for the three musketeers who ran for Congress last year (and lost miserably). By making his statement, he's dug himself a little deeper in the hole. He doesn't seem to mind, and we're the better for it.
