Kindred Spirits Meet: Obama lands in the prison island of Cuba for historic visit where he feels very much at home among Communists


When Obama goes to sleep at night he dreams that he doesn't have the U.S. Constitution tying his hands. 
He yearns for the kind of power his BFFs, the Castro brothers, wield over the people of Cuba.  So, on his so-called historic visit to Cuba, there’s a tiny tear in Obama’s eye. Why couldn’t I be more like the Castros?   

NY Post reports U.S. President Barack Obama arrived in Cuba on Sunday on a historic visit, opening a new chapter in U.S. engagement with the island’s Communist government after decades of animosity between the former Cold War foes.

Obama landed at Havana’s Jose Marti International Airport aboard Air Force One, the presidential jet with “United States of America” emblazoned across its fuselage, a sight almost unimaginable before the detente of December 2014.

The three-day trip, the first by a U.S. president to Cuba in 88 years, is the culmination of a diplomatic opening announced by Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro in December 2014, ending a Cold War-era estrangement that began when the Cuban revolution ousted a pro-American government in 1959.

Obama, who abandoned a longtime U.S. policy of trying to isolate Cuba, wants to make his shift irreversible. But major obstacles remain to full normalization of ties, and Obama’s critics at home say the visit is premature.
