|The historical handshake between U.S. president Barack Obama and Cuban president Raul Castro signals progress. Conservatives are foaming at the mouth over this.|
President Barack Obama heads down to Panama for the Summit of Americas. During his visit the junk food media is covering the monumental handshake with Cuba's president Raul Castro.
The powerful symbolism of a substantial exchange Saturday between the leaders with the leadership of the Western Hemisphere gathered around them could signal progress. Both sides are still working through nettlesome issues that would lead to the opening of embassies in Washington and Havana, the first stage in a new diplomatic relationship.
The United States is turning the page and willing to engage with Cuba. The president will talk to Castro and consider lifting Cuba off the list of state sponsored terrorist nations.
Obama believes the time has come to lift the embargo against the Communist nation. The conservative outrage is off the chain. They believe that Cuba is still a threat to the United States.
The president is trying to ease tension with the island nation. It's been over 50 years, and many young voters support the idea of talking to Cuba and Iran. Many old school Cubans, the racist right, and agitators are foaming at the mouth complaining about how shaking hands with Castro is disgusting.
Cuba's Raul Castro and his brother the former dictator Fidel have been in power for years. According to the media, their regime has killed thousands of Cubans during the revolution.
The peak of conflict happened when then president John F. Kennedy launched the Bay of Pigs invasion.
The conservatives believe that this appeasing, anti-Semitic, Socialist, Commie, aloof, racist, Muslim Obama is weak on foreign policy. They believe that talking to Iran and Cuba is treasonous.
The Republicans threaten to derail any talks with Cuba and Iran.
Defying the odds is makes Barack Obama a great president. He isn't afraid to engage with the countries the junk food media label as enemies.
The Republicans claim that Obama is willing to talk to "our enemies" and "shun our friends".
This stems from the Benjamin Netanyahu fiasco. The controversial Israeli prime minister is trying to encourage American lawmakers to push for more sanctions against Iran. The global powers are coming to an agreement on the Iranian nuclear program.
The Republicans are trying to stall or pass legislation to derail this historical deal.
Will Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) appear on GOP Sundays to bitch about the handshake?
