Chuck Hagel and My Low Hanging Fruit Theory
Hagel has worked assiduously in favor of lifting the trade embargo, calling the policy “outdated, unrealistic, irrelevant policy.” And he was instrumental in blocking legislation to grant Elian Gonzales citizenship.
The Castro regime, of course, has grown increasingly close to the Iranian regime and has allied itself with Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez. In seizing and imprisoning an American, Alan Gross, it has advocated a swap with the so-called Cuban five spies (a position strenuously opposed by the U.S. Senate).
The Obama presidency will need a legacy and given their leadership ineptitude, they'll most likely go for the low hanging fruit: Barrack Obama, the President who single-handedly lifted the archaic, inhumane, and ridiculous US embargo on Cuba.
