President Obama won’t be going to the Antonin Scalia funeral, though he and Mrs. Obama will pay their respects Friday as Justice Scalia lies in repose. There is no reason given for why they won’t go to the services on Saturday of this man who gave thirty years of his life to this court, who was a brilliant Constitution defender.
“He will no doubt be remembered as one of the most consequential judges and thinkers to serve on the Supreme Court,” Obama said in remarks Saturday night. “Consequential and thinkers”…interesting adjectives, aren’t they? Not exactly compliments?!
President Obama will be going to Cuba in March. The news is calling it an “historic visit.” I’ll say. Here’s a country whose people still don’t elect their leader, which houses a woman who killed an American policeman, and you all know the rest of Cuba’s ‘delights.’
Apparently, Obama wants to talk to pro-democracy dissidents: “If I go on a visit, then part of the deal is that I get to talk to everybody,” Obama said. “I’ve made very clear in my conversations directly with President [Raul] Castro that we would continue to reach out to those who want to broaden the scope for, you know, free expression inside of Cuba.” Ya, we ‘know,’ Barack.
I got to thinking about these two facts announced in one day and kind of liked the visual; what a guy, huh? The people he honors really solidifies what most of us have recognized about him for years. Once again, I suppose he really doesn’t give a darn what any of us thinks.
Marco Rubio says he wouldn’t go to Cuba until it was a “free Cuba” for its people. Do you agree?
