Words that can (but won’t) come back to haunt President Obama

If there were ever any correlation between what President Obama says and what he does, these words could come back to haunt him when it comes to his failed policy towards the Castro dictatorship in Cuba. But after all, this is Obama we are talking about, the prince of the teleprompter, the smooth operator, the don't listen to what I'm saying, listen to how I'm saying it president.

Therefore, pointing out this quote is purely an exercise in documentation.

Via Capitol Hill Cubans:

We Agree, Mr. President

From U.S. President Barack Obama's interview this week with New Republic:

I continue to believe that whenever we can codify something through legislation, it is on firmer ground. It's not going to be reversed by a future president. It is something that will be long lasting and sturdier and more stable.

Thus, the very clear conditions on human rights, democratic reform and the dismantling of the Castro regime's repressive apparatus that were codified into U.S. law in 1996 and 2000.

Pursuant to the legislation that codified these conditions into law, trade and travel sanctions cannot be lifted until those conditions are fulfilled.
