Obama and the Empire (Castro)

Luckily, Castro does not write the same way he speaks. In this collection of what he calls Reflections, Castro, who turns 90 soon and holds the record for the longest speech ever at the United Nations, offers his thoughts on the early years of Obama’s first term. Though he seems to admire Obama (certainly a great deal more than W, McCain or other political figures), he returns frequently to his central thesis – that Obama is inherently hampered by the system he leads. This collection, expanded for this 2012 edition, was obviously printed before Obama’s recent visit. I suspect he would think it was a step, but not nearly enough of one. And you know what? I agree. End the blockade.
