At a campaign event in Ohio yesterday, a woman introducing Republican Vice Presidential Nominee Paul Ryan compared Obama to Castro. She stated that we were “duped in Cuba by Castro. Let’s make sure it doesn’t happen again.”
Although she didn’t mention it, Paul Ryan recently vigorously criticized the Obama Administration’s Cuban policy.
Last month, the New York Times reported that:
Mr. Ryan argues that the Obama administration has been too willing to engage with Cuba and has made it too easy to travel back and forth and send money to Havana from the United States. He vowed that a Romney-Ryan administration would be “tough on Castro” as well as on Hugo Chávez, the Venezuelan leader.
Here’s the video from the campaign event yesterday:
