    Obama extends Cuba embargo one year - USATODAY.com

    This, of course, makes no sense since trade is in the best interests of both Cuba and the United States. This is true isolationism, refusing to trade with others.

    I'm guessing he wanted to deal with healthcare before he had to deal with the right on the Cuba issue...

    I dont see the point of the embargo anymore. Let's trade, and show them how many good products the USA has.

    That's hardly an excuse. He didn't wait to deal with the right on setting a date for Guantanamo, for setting a date on Iraq, for sending troops to Afghanistan (though I suspect the right mostly agrees with this), the stimulus package, or cap and trade.

    No american president will ever normalize relations while Castro is still alive.

    Once he dies, there will be a rush to become trading partners with Cuba.

    The embargo should be ended, but it was smart move to not take on that issue right now.

    How so? Isolation doesn't help us one bit.
