Obama will be in Cuba meeting with Castro and Chavez within his first year in office. They contributed significant amounts of money to his election and they expect Obama to keep his end of the bargain. You read it here first.

Dear President Obama:

You promise CHANGE! Well if you really mean it, and you do have good intentions, I challenge you to prove it. Demand from the Cuban government that all the political dissidents be set free effective immediately, particularly our afroCuban brother, Oscar Elias Biscet. Dr. Biscet is imprisoned for championing the cause for human rights. He never did anything wrong or illegal but his defense of human rights is considered by the dictatorship counterrevolutionary. There are many of us who doubt you, prove us wrong with a good deed, but make this a dermand that must be met, not just a simple request.
Be a HERO Mr President, not just another politician with an agenda. Please do not end the Embargo till this is met!

Mr. Obama starts receiving security briefings today.

For the first time ever, US intelligence agencies are sharing highly classified, comprehensive security information with someone who has previously associated with known terrorists.

Truly an historic day in American history.

Yes, there are people who consort with terrorists at major educational institutions.

What I said was that never before have US intelligence agencies shared highly classified, comprehensive security information with someone who has consorted with known terrorists.

It is a simple statement. A truthful fact.

Mr Obama, tear down the wall, allow americans to travel where they please, like the rest of the world's democracies. A handful of people in Miami, are stealing the freedom to travel wherever they please, from the American people. We should have the same rights as Canada, Australia and Great Britain. They should not be taken away by a small vocal group of immigrants.

Let's support Obama to tear that wall,but let's not be as naive as to blame the Miami Cubans. The real culprit is Castro's senile 50 years old failed Communist dictatorship.Only a fool will blame the Mami Cubans for everything!
