Obama On Democracy In America

Too much going on right now so I’m just going to post the below quote without commentary. Here is President Barack Obama’s take on democracy in America, delivered in Cuba.

“Stop and consider this fact about the American campaign that’s taking place right now. You have two Cuban-Americans in the Republican Party running against the legacy of a black man who is president while arguing that they are the best person to beat the Democratic nominee who will either be a woman or a Democratic socialist. Who would have believed that back in 1959? That’s a measure of our progress as a democracy.”

Ok, a little commentary; the word currently being used to describe Obama’s trip to Cuba is “historic,” but it will eventually be replaced with “mistake.” What an embarrassment.
