Cuba today: “Los Castros no quieren cambio”

(This is my new Cuba post over at American Thinker) We've seen this movie many times before.  It starts with a country giving Cuba a line of credit or going around the US embargo.  It is followed by high expectations that Cuba will change once Cubans in the island greet foreign tourists or Spaniards build […]

Dear President Obama: “Tu nuevo embajador a la Argentina nunca ha visitado Argentina”

(This is my American Thinker post about our new ambassador to Argentina.) Let's be fair and admit that ambassadorships are often handed out to friends of the president.   So I will cut President Obama some slack if he chooses a political friend to fill an ambassador's post. But not Argentina. Not today's Argentina. Senator […]

“No me digas”: The Obama Care website “habla Spanglish”!

Why is anyone surprised?   The Spanish Obama Care website is a mess! The Obama Care website is frustrating Spanish speakers: "The site, CuidadoDeSalud.gov, launched more than two months late. A Web page with Spanish instructions linked users to an English form. And the translations were so clunky and full of grammatical mistakes that critics […]

Donde esta la “guagua?”: We have to throw another one under the bus!

Let's throw another one under the bus.   It's getting very crowded down there. Let's place it right next to the one about keeping your own policy!   And not far from Rev Wright! According to Peter Suderman, another one of the reasons for The Affordable Health Care Act has met reality: "Supporters of Obamacare […]

“Barbara y su falso mesías”

Barbara Walters admitted the obvious, i.e. too many people got caught up in Obama the Messiah: "Barbara Walters said the difficulties engulfing President Barack Obama are a reflection of the let-down people are feeling from the high expectations they had during his earliest days in office when she and others thought he was going to […]

Obam(ACA)re is at The Center of Obama Slipping With Hispanics

From Florida Watchdog: Lost in translation: Once-supportive Hispanics turning backs on Obama, ACA MIAMI – They were among President Obama’s best supporters, but support for the president and his signature health insurance scheme is quickly dying among Hispanics. A recent Gallup poll showed Obama’s approval rating among Hispanic down 23 percent, to 52 percent in […]

Today in 1991: “El dia que se acabo la URSS”

It was not "nosotros que nos queremos tanto debemos separarnos....", like the famous romantic song from pre-Castro Cuba. It was more practical than that.   It was a realization that the USSR was no longer a viable country. On this day in 1991, we heard that it was over: "After a long meeting between Soviet […]

“Oye compay, que semana”: We talk Cuba with Jorge Ponce!

Jorge Ponce and I looked back at this big "semana" of Cuba news. It started with the handshake, talk of Dr Gross, calls for lifting the embargo, to more of Alberto's posts about human rights violations in the island. Even Elian made the news this week.  Wonder if someone told Elian that his mother died to […]

Obam(ACA)re* Looks A Lot Like CastroCare

ObamaCare architect Zeke Emanuel will now explain to you unwashed dolts exactly why you cannot keep that doctor you have been seeing for years and years, and trust with your medical history, (real) healthcare, and life... Got that, dummies? 1) Because Obama did not say you could have unlimited "choice". Where the Hell did you […]

“La injusticia del Sr Gross”: Another wife wants her husband released from Cuba’s prisons!

As I wrote recently on American Thinker, who is protecting US citizens abroad these days?    North Korea, Iran and Cuba are the 3 countries holding US citizens for bogus reasons. The case of Allan Gross is simply appalling.      What is this man guilty of?   Nothing!!!!! He has been "left behind" as […]

Alan Gross’ Wife Fights For Release Of Husband Jailed In Cuba

Alan Gross' wife Judy was on FOX News this afternoon where they highlighted a letter to Obama that Gross himself recently wrote asking Obama to get involved in securing his release. Don't hold your breath... Watch the latest video at video.latino.foxnews.com

Honduras 1, Zelaya 0

On Sunday, the people of Honduras voted to reject Mrs Zelaya, who was nothing but a front for Mr Zelaya. The public knows that Zelaya was a disaster, as The Washington Post pointed out: "Beset by some of the worst poverty and crime in the Western Hemisphere, Honduran voters had many reasons to reject the […]

The new Iran deal: “Un cuchillo en la espalda de Israel”

The new Iran deal is a perfect storm, or the kind of event that will have huge unintended consequences. Let's look at the elements of this perfect storm: 1) The Obama administration is desperately looking for any kind of legacy.  President Obama is trying to look consequential on the world scene.   Why did he […]

“Le ronca el mango” and other things that people are saying about the ObamaCare premiums!

You don't have to read any polls to figure out that the public is very disappointed. Just talk to them. Ask adults about a job or young people about looking for one! Or ask them about paying higher premiums so that ObamaCare can work. Let me tell you what one of my sons' friends said […]

A word for Obama: “Camarón que se duerme se lo lleva la corriente”

Wake up Obama or you may drifting downstream with all of the other "camarones". The latest explanation about the ObamaCare "fumble" is that President Obama does not like to hear "bad news". This is from Gloria Borger: "People don’t like to tell him bad news,” says an ex-White House staffer. “Part of it is the […]
