Nikki Haley just embarrassed Barack Obama for the cruel thing he did to the Cuban people.
Look, annoying the Cuban population in South Florida spelled doom for the Dems and Hillary so he probably thought he was doing the right thing.
It is just that, as with most things Obama, it backfired. What is it that they say about the road to hell being paved with good intentions?
That will be the liberal’s epitaph – just another cliché proven correct.
Nikki Haley took the extraordinary step of apologizing to a whole nation for Obama’s shoddy treatment.
According to the Washington Examiner Haley, speaking of the cowardly abstention on a critical UN vote that would have helped the Cuban people said:
“When the United States abstained on this resolution last year, its decision was explained by saying, ‘We recognize that the future of the island lies in the hands of the Cuban people. There is a casual cruelty to that remark for which I am profoundly sorry. Regrettably, as of today, the future of Cuba is not in your hands. It remains in the hands of your dictators.”
Correct. It was another missed opportunity for Obama. Another cruel blow to a desperate people.
One that will have lasting consequences for a people who just want to be free.
Marco Rubio echoed Nikki’s comments saying,
“Despite the Obama administration’s unilateral concessions to the Castro regime, I remain hopeful that the Trump administration’s new policy toward Cuba will empower the Cuban people, and bring them closer to freedom and democracy. Ambassador Haley’s vote today is one more step in that direction.
