"I think that, clearly, the approach we've taken for the last half-century has not gotten us anywhere. It's time to do something different," says Cohen. "I am really going to learn. How can you possibly understand the different opportunities that exist unless you go?"

Says Capin: "Tampa is where the future of the relationship between the United States and Cuba will unfold. I truly believe that."

    Kathy, honey, that is NOT a good look for you (and be grateful I'm not being more explicit).

    "It's time to do something different." How about having the Regime do SOMETHING DIFFERENT, like resigning and paying back the U.S. and its citizens for grand theft and other offenses?
