In his Feb. 26 analysis, Venezuela’s violence, Cuba’s ‘farce,’ and Marco Rubio’s milestone speech, Marc Caputo called Sen. Marco Rubio’s recent speech on Cuba, “the best oration of his political career.”
In his angry criticism of Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin’s praise of the Cuban healthcare system, Rubio said, “I would suggest to my colleagues the next time they visit Cuba, ask to meet with the Ladies in White. Ask to meet with Yoani Sanchez.”
Rubio may not lack eloquence or passion in his rhetoric, but should he be recommending an audience with Yoani Sanchez? The talented blogger is emphatically anti-embargo and pro-travel.
