The Cuban embassy re-opened in Washington, DC today 54 years after being closed, and during the ceremony there were reports of a particular chant:

Via the Free Beacon:

MSNBC reporter Luke Russert reported the chants at an event commemorating resumption of diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba.

“Most of the protesters are actually in favor of this,” Russert reported, “and they’re shouting ‘Viva Raúl! Viva Obama!’ I’m sure he’s probably not thrilled to be intertwined with Raúl that directly.”

Russert thought the White House might not be thrilled to be associated with Raul Castro in that fashion?


Obama and his administration couldn’t be happier.
