Obama Too Good to Meet with Cuban Freedom Fighters

It gives me great sadness when the President of the “Free World” can not make time to greet people who are struggling for freedom. Even the Washington Post asks:

Why doesn’t President Obama have time for Cuba’s pro-democracy opposition?

The President couldn’t meet with representatives for the National Endowment for Democracy’s 2009 Democracy Award recipients Jorge Luis “Antunez” Garcia Perez, Jose Daniel Ferrer Garcia, Librado Linares, Ivan Hernandez Carrillo, and Iris Tamara Perez Aguilera who are standing up for the right of the Cuban people in the Communist island.

Thank you to Babalu Blog and Naked Politics for covering the issue.

There are alot of great videos about Antunez but most in Spanish. Here is a video from Congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart discussing what Antunez and other freedom fighters have gone through:
