Shouts of “U.S.A.!” and “Obama!” echoed over the stone plazas as President Obama and his family made their way around rain-slicked courtyards in Old Havana on Sunday evening, savoring the adulation of Cubans welcoming him warmly despite a driving rain as he began a history-making visit.
“Welcome to Cuba! We like you!” a man shouted as Mr. Obama’s entourage passed. Above, a woman applauded and hooted from her wrought-iron balcony.
Later, a motorcade including the presidential limousine, adorned for the first time with Cuban and American flags, snaked through narrow streets where elated residents, their clothing soaked from waiting in the rain, hoisted cellphones and cheered the first sitting American leader to set foot on Cuban soil in 88 years.
Okay so just how many history making, landmark decisions is that for this President so far in his two terms?
Ended our two unnecessary wars, killed Osama Bin Laden, repealed DADT, saved the US auto industry, brought healthcare to millions of uninsured Americans, saved the economy, and that was only in his first term.
The next time that somebody offers there opinion that this is a failed President, just go right ahead and laugh in their face.
Because that really is the only appropriate response.
