Quote of the day - John Kerry

John "Do you know who I am?” Kerry * speaks his wisdom: US Department of State

I was a seventeen year old kid watching on a black and white television set when I first heard an American President talk of Cuba as an "imprisoned island.”

For five and a half decades since, our policy toward Cuba has remained virtually frozen, and done little to promote a prosperous, democratic and stable Cuba. Not only has this policy failed to advance America's goals, it has actually isolated the United States instead of isolating Cuba.

That’s right. It is the US that is isolated more than Cuba. Oh? Are people from everywhere in the world trying to get into Cuba? Do Americans drive only US cars from the 1950s, or do we import from any country that make quality cars?

Tell us more, esteemed Mr. Kerry.

* (That is what people in Massachusetts tell us Kerry says when he treats people like dirt in public: "Do you know who I am?”)
