Krauthammer turned out to be right about Obama and Cuba

Over the last 24 hours, I’ve spent a lot of time remembering Charles Krauthammer. As I’m sure you know, Dr. Krauthammer wrote a letter saying goodbye to his fans and colleagues.

One of my favorite Krauthammer moments was from March 2016 or his reaction to President Obama’s trip to Cuba:

Cuba wasn’t so much a legacy trip as a vanity trip, vindicating the dorm-room enthusiasms of one’s student days when the Sandinistas were cool, revolution was king and every other friend had a dog named Che.

We would have been a lot better if President Obama had listened to Dr. Krauthammer during his presidency.

We will miss him a lot.

  1. There was no need for any outsider to figure out Obama’s “normalization” scheme was NOT the way to go on Cuba. There were plenty of Cuban experts, real ones, readily available, but of course Obama didn’t want their advice, not even that of Dem senator Bob Menendez–he had sycophantic hacks like Ben Rhodes to “validate” his plan (and I’m not sure Rhodes was even knowledgeable enough to qualify as a hack). Yes, the media could have been more reality-based as opposed to hyperventilating over the word “historic,” but that’s business as usual. The media, both in and outside Cuba, helped put Fidel Castro in power, but it’s not going to do much, if anything, to correct that grave error.
