2008 Candidates Travel: Obama Talks Cuba
Presumptive GOP presidential nominee John McCain has been stumping around America, and lately he's been slamming Barack Obama for his position on Cuba. (You'll remember that the Illinois senator wants to ease travel restrictions to the island.)
Hoping to set the record straight, Obama delivered a speech today to the Cuban American National Foundation:
Every four years, [politicians] come down to Miami, they talk tough, they go back to Washington and nothing changes in Cuba. That's what John McCain did the other day.
Obama then laid out his plan for dealing with the island, which isn't exactly what those of us who'd like to visit legally were hoping to hear:
I will immediately allow unlimited family travel and remittances to the island ... [but] I will maintain the embargo.
Sounds like we'll be keeping our golf clubs in storage no matter who wins in November.
