McCain gives Versailles a shout-out

Miami-Dade school board member Ana Rivas Logan got the opportunity to share the stage with John McCain Saturday, asking him whether comprehensive immigration reform -- and not just border enforcement -- would be a priority.

But first she made it clear she was unlikely to go too tough on McCain, saying that she was "truly honored" to be standing with the "next president of the US."

"I hope you'll join me again at Versailles cafe," McCain said. "I'll be there," Logan replied to cheers.

Miami Republican Rep. Juan Zapata was also tagged to ask a question, he told McCain he had a "lot of friends down in Florida."

I refuse to vote for any candidate that stops at Versailles for a photo op kissing Cuban butt. These assclowns wouldn't know a pastelito from a periwinkle but they always stop by....cameras in tow. Let one of these jackasses show up wothout photographers or TV crews and maybe I'd take them seriously. Cubans are too stupid to know they are being played.

Well said Mr. Freep. I liked what Obama said when speaking to Cuban-American audiences recently: "I won't wear a guayabera for you... but I will listen and tell you were I stand." I like his honesty. As a Cuban-American, Obama has my vote.

Well said Fred! First it was Rooty Gooliani who scukered the Versailles Crowd now its McCain who is trolling for suckers at the Versailles. And he has a Full Net from the Looks of thing! Why do they keep falling for these Once every 4 year visitors?

Hey Mccain, instead of pandering to the Cuban immigrants. How about paying attention to "real" Americans.

NORMAN HENSLEY

I DO NOT KNOW WHY THE CUBAN COMMUNITY WOULD SUPPORT MCAIN.HE DOES NOT EVEN WANT TO CONSIDER ENGAGING WITH CUBA.HE DOES NOT WANT TO LET US CUBAN AMERICANS SEND MORE MONEY TO OUR RELATIVES.LET US TRAVEL TO CUBA TO VISIT OUR RELATIVES.CASTRO IS GOING TO DIE SOON WHY NOT START DIALOGUE WITH RAUL.WHAT HAVE WE GOT TO LOSE.THE EMBARGO HAS NOT WORKED.THE REPUBLICANS WILL TRADE.AND LET AMERICANS TRAVEL TO CHINA AND VIETNAM.BUT NOT CUBA.IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE

Bill Clinton's greatest success was NAFTA's free trade agreement, and Obama is against NAFTA and free trade. Both Latin America and the USA will suffer is Obama is elected.

Mc Cain, like the others before him from the republican side come to have a cup of ink cuban cofee and talk the same B/S about Cuba Mc Cain is to old andis a war monger will be like a Bush 3rd term not good for America.

Eight years of Bush and we Cuban/Americans in Miami have not learned one thing. The republicans are all talk and no action. The situation in Cuba is not going to change no matter who the president of the United states is. That being said I don't live in Cuba and at the moment could not care less what happens there. I do care about our situatiion in America and I believe Barack Obama will change things. What have we got to loose.

Diamela

All I have to say to all Cuban-Americans is that Obama is a socialist in disguise . . . a vote for Obama is a vote for Castro/Chavez!

Octavio: "Change" is a dangerous word. Obama needs to explain CHANGE TO WHAT??? This reminds me of Castro talking about change back in the late 50's/early 60's.

I KNOW WE DON'T HAVE IT GREAT WITH THE REPUBLICANS, BUT IT MIGHT BE WORST WITH THE DEMOCRATS.

Please, everyone, get thoroughly informed before you vote!

KoolKuban,

What has Obama been dishonest about? Also, I can't understand why these brain washed republicans we want to continue this tired, failed, cuba policy. Isolationism hasn't worked. Why don't we wake up and work towards change. I know alot of people who feel like me and I think Republicans are in trouble come November.
