Joe Biden Enrages DUmmies Over Cuba Embargo
Biden says U.S. does not plan to lift Cuba embargo
VINA DEL MAR, Chile, March 28 (Reuters) - U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said on Saturday the United States would not lift the country's embargo on Cuba.
"No," Biden told reporters at a meeting in Chile when asked if the United States planned to lift the embargo.
[I love how Biden knows he could get himself in trouble if he provides anything more than monosyllabic answers.]
Saying there's no plans to and saying they would not do it are two different things. Reuter's reporter shouldn't equate the two.
[Let us now all do a microanalysis on the meaning of "No."]
There's not many hairs there to split. He gave a one word answer to a fairly specific question.
[Go ahead and split away!]
Or the Reuters story is crap. What are the odds.
[Pay no attention to the "No" that was provided.]
100% chance that story is weak.
[100% chance that you are denying reality.]
Something is "up" with Cuba--I don't know what it is, but it's Not Quite Right.
[I think that thing that is not quite right in Cuba happened on New Years Day 1959.]
My opinion is that the right wing never really leaves office --
[Said the DUmmie completely unaware of the irony as regards Castro.]
Happy karma, Joe. This is way past wrong.
[And a Merry Kwanzaa to you!]
Beside doubling or tripling the annual federal deficits, where is the substantive 'change'?????
[Patience. Change will happen just after the quadrupling of the federal deficit.]
One thing Cuba could do is allow ordinary Cuban citizens to have Internet access? What are the Cuban authorities afraid of? Gosh, with Net access Cubans could even read DU.
[Even better, they could read the DUmmie FUnnies.]
Its a shameful imperialist attitude to suggest that Cuba should bow to US imperialism in any way. They have managed OK since casting off the shackles of US hegemony. Plus the people have achieved the social infrastructure they wanted by participation in their system of government - something that Americans haven't done.
[We are lacking the free elections for which Cuba is known.]
I wonder what else he said? When has Joe ever answered in a monosyllable?
[I remember that one word "Yes" from him at the presidential debates.]
I was thinking the same thing. "No" is so un-Biden-like. Looking around to see if can find the exact question and the exact answer.
[Maybe he was warned he would be fired like the GM president if he made a fool of himself just one more time.]
The rest of the story ....
[Is that you, Paul Harvey?]
"We think that Cuban people should determine their own fate and they should be able to live in freedom and have some prospect of economic prosperity," he added.
Several South American defense ministers this month urged President Barack Obama to lift the embargo on Cuba, saying such a move was crucial to improve U.S. ties with the region.
"Obama and I made it clear during our campaign that we thought there's a need for transition in our policy toward Cuba," Biden added.
[Uh-oh! This is not good. However, the DUmmie reaction should be verrrrry interesting.]
Can I still hope Reuters got it wrong or should I just accept that this is neo-colonial cr@p? Hmmm. What to do.
[Close your eyes, lean back, and click your heels together three times while reciting, "Take me away to the alternate reality. Take me away to the alternate reality. Take me away to the alternate reality."]
Let's wait for the Spanish version (if there is one). I have to see if the question was asked in Spanish or English and how it was framed. Unsee anything yet on Santiago media.
[Hmmm... I wonder what the Spanish translation of "No" is?]
why would Cuba be on the terrorist list? according to people on here, Cuba is the happiest place on earth
[I'm suspecting this DUmmie is really a LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
Cuba can become the Dubai of the Caribbean Basin, while the US watches. Again, if this happens, watch how fast Biden et. al. change the tune overnight. Our collective memory in the US is about two years anyway.
[Workers Paradise is that light at the end of the tunnel.]
