“Washington, D.C. – Following the release of an American contractor held in a prison in Cuba for five years, President Obama announced on Wednesday that the United States will restore full diplomatic relations with Cuba and open an embassy in Havana for the first time in more than 50 years.
“During 18 months of secret talks encouraged by Pope Francis and hostel largely by Canada, a deal was negotiated between President Raul Castro of Cuba and Mr. Obama to put aside decades of hostility to find a new relationship between the United States and the Cuban people, which resides some 90 miles off the American coast.
“In a nationally televised statement from the White House, Obama said: “we will end an outdated approach that for decades has failed to advance our interests and instead we will begin to normalize relations between our two countries.”
“He also added that the deal “will begin a new chapter among the nations of the Americas, and move beyond a rigid policy that is rooted in events that took place before most of us were born.”
It would be unrealistic to expect that the GOP would remain silent on such an important political precedent. The Governor of Texas, Rick Perry, has made sure the Republican voice is heard.
In an exclusive interview with Newslo, Perry has loudly expressed his “disgust with what the President and Secretary of State are doing to his beloved America.”
“Let me tell you a thing or two about Obama and Kerry; those two couldn’t find a single star on the American flag. I mean, things were working fine for half of century, and now they’re being smartasses and making decisions on behalf of nearly 400 million Americans! They’ve desecrated pretty much all of the values of the Republican Party and the American society – family, economy, immigration, and now they’ve taken it upon themselves to piss all over the core value of our country – democracy by war. Well, I personally won’t stand for it!”, the Governor furiously concluded.
