Reflections by comrade Fidel





The response came hardly a few hours later in the voice of the White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. It doesnít matter if he chose not to mention my modest Reflection. Itís the response that counts.


He said to the journalists that it is the Cuban American community President Obama is interested in. It was the first time he addressed the subject after the inauguration. From the Cubans with the right to vote due to their ancestry in the state of Florida, 3 to 1 voted for the Democratic candidate. He is not interested in the almost 12 million Cubans who live in the island.


When the man closest to the President was asked who his candidate was in Cuba he declined to elaborate on the issue and said that the lesser that was said on Cuba, the better.


He said that Cuban Americans will be permitted to travel to Cuba and to send remittances.


But he did not even mention the American citizensí right to travel.


The Cuban Adjustment Act and the Blockade did not deserve any comments from him.


Thus rather sooner than later Obamaís politics is losing its virginity.
