"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - President Ronald Reagan
Q: With Castro sidelined, has the United States reached out to his brother, Raul, to try to turn the page, look for anything new?
MR. SNOW: No. Look, the one thing that this President has talked about from the very beginning is his hope for the Cuban people finally to enjoy the fruits of freedom and democracy. And for the dictator, Fidel Castro, to hand off power to his brother, who has been the prison keeper, is not a change in that status. So Raul Castro’s attempt to impose himself on the Cuban people is much the same as what his brother did. So, no, there are no plans to reach out.
Unfortunately, the Obama administration reached out and we know how that turned out.
We miss Tony Snow. Our best to his wife and children.
