Castro's Kudos

Now he says something! Waiting until to today to comment on the signing into law of Obamacare, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro heaped applause on the young president for the achievement, but still managed to chasten the nation for taking 234 years to realize what his country accomplished the very first year he assumed power. Understandably, the President and the Democrat congressional leadership accepted the praise with reservations. They all knew that had Castro spoken out earlier, before last week's momentous vote, they might have achieved party unanimity not only in the Senate, but in the House as well, and assured much easier passage of the historic bill.

But what's done is done. Look for relations with the island nation to improve nonetheless as the Administration looks to it for guidance in implementing the new legislation.
