Quote of the Day – Standing up for Cuba’s right to be free
Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) responds to remarks on U.S. policy towards Cuba made by chancletero gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist (
R, I, D), a man who has never met a position or issue he cannot switch sides on:
"The suggestion that Cuban Americans need to be 'stood up to' is insulting... Our nation is great because we were built on a foundation of freedom and democracy. That is not true in Cuba and we should not pretend it is. The importance of maintaining the embargo is that it stands for the Cuban people's right to be free."
