(GrasstopsUSA.com) -- Obama would have planted a big, wet one on Cuba's communist regime in 2009 if not for the need to get through three election cycles. Now he's been liberated from such mundane matters, and can give free reign to his inner Marxist. After the president announced normalization, Barack's buddy Comrade Bill Ayers Tweeted, "Viva Cuba! Cuba es en mi corazon!" ("Long live Cuba! Cuba is in my heart!")
As a doctrinaire leftist, the president believes that Fidel Castro's rise to power in 1959 marked the end of America's colonial exploitation of the island, and that severing diplomatic relations and the trade embargo are unjust.
That Cuba is marked by brutal repression, the absence of even the most basic human rights and a collectivized economy that distributes the misery quite efficiently, doesn't concern him in the least – any more than he cares about the regime's support for terrorism or its ongoing efforts to export communism to Latin America.
