Everyone’s favorite Caribbean tourist Bob Menendez (D-Ecuador/Dominican Republic) is once again finding himself in opposition to the Obama Administration on the foreign affairs front, Save Jerseyans, moments after the White House performed an about-face after decades of single-track Cuban-American policy.
Menendez didn’t mince words:
“President Obama’s actions have vindicated the brutal behavior of the Cuban government. There is no equivalence between an international aid worker and convicted spies who were found guilty of conspiracy to commit espionage against our nation. One spy was also convicted of conspiracy to murder for his role in the 1996 tragedy in which the Cuban military shot down two U.S. civilian planes, killing several American citizens. My heart goes out to the American families that lost love ones on that fateful day.”

What would make this criticism more effective? If the good senator would trying being a little more consistent. At various times he’s cited racism and intrigue as the forces behind salacious internationally-focused ethics allegations lodged against him. Now he’s accusing the President of vindicating an evil regime only days after blaming Republicans for POTUS’s many failures.
Make up your mind, Senator: do you want to be an independent voice at a time when our country is in deep peril? Or are you going to continue to be a reliable liberal lap dog for all the wrong people?
