The Year Sons Betrayed Their Fathers

I don't believe this. I am in utter shock.

Jorge Mas Santos of the Cuban American National Foundation, the absolute bedrock of Cuban-American anti-Communist sentiment, has endorsed Barack Obama for President. CLARIFICATION: It's not a formal endorsement, just to make that clear. But he wrote in his Washington Post Op-Ed piece that Obama would be the best choice for a freer Cuba.

That's the sound of my jaw hitting the keyboard, followed by the sound of my keyboard hitting the wall...

I always knew that boy was no good, ever since the Elian case...ugh.

I met his late father, Jorge Mas Canosa, a few times socially and that man was a leader. I think he is spinning in his grave today, to see what his son has done to his legacy. First William F. Buckley's principles were made a mockery by his son Christopher, and now Jorgito has too.

Meanwhile, Sergei Khrushchev is a proud American citizen, living in the freedom his father's country never provided him with. If you have to rebel, that's something you rebel FOR. Wonder who he will be voting for in 2008...wait, I don't think I can take any more shocks.

  • He just handed over a propaganda weapon to the Castros' regime. Now they can say that he changes allegiance according from whom he can get money and influence.

    Mas Santos and Joe Garcia are banking on the new generation of exiles. Thinking they will be semi-socialists forever. They are wrong. We all change, we mature, and as different as we are from "el exilio historico" and the people in the Cuban AM radio, we are not as different as those two believe. They are in for a surprise.

    I hope you are right. Here is where I agree with you.

    I have noticed that the Cuban-Americans jumping ship to the Democrats are unbelievably the ones who grew up here. They are 3/4th generation already. They have less contact with those abuelos who knew the horrors of Communism.

    Sure, the newer arrivals tend also to be Democrats, because they are used to and depend on the handouts to live.

    But for example, a lady I know (arrived in 1992) voted for Kerry in 2004, but is voting for McCain in 2008. She finds Obama much too much liberal.

    I didn't want to tell her that this is a natural consequence of aging, as much as changing ingrained political beliefs.

    BTW, she doesn't like Palin because she considers her 'un ceso hueco'. She voted already for them, in early voting though, so who cares. ;)

    BTW, I really dislike Joe Garcia. I never thought much of Mas Santos. Interestingly, although you can tell that he's un corrupto, I have met and like Raul Martinez. But please, I would never vote for him over Lincoln...

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • Those new arrivals want the handouts because they are used to them, and because in Miami, and let's be honest, there are very few possibilities of change and progress. I found mine, but many people seem unable to do it.

    The ones born and/or raised here, well, I think they do it to

    a) be cool and chic

    and

    b) to spite los viejos. I know this from my two cousins who have lived most of their lives in Miami.

    Raul Martinez is the Cuban Daly (although his father never held office). I can't stand his sleezy face. I think the only Cuban-American Democrat politician I liked was Penelas, and...bueno...

  • Vicky, las viejas cubanas like male politicians, and despite female ones. They are competition! ;)

    Besides, they are quick to judge, but sooner or later, they will come to like her. That's the way they are.

    The last two months or so I have felt that way. Pretty much ever since McCain chose Palin and I saw what was done to her. We are living in jaw-droppingly scary times right now.

  • It should be "despise" not despite

  • Well then what do you make of the mob scene involving two Cuban-Americans outside the McCain rally in Miami today?

    Check the report out by fivethirtyeight who were on the scene to cover the rally.

    I hope that McCain supporters aren't heading towards a total crack-up, but if this is any indication at least some of them may be.

  • What's your point Eli?

  • Oh, yeah, Eli, let me tell you what my cousin told one of his co-workers during the Elian deal:

    "Don't worry, we don't burn our own neighborhoods"
