The retiring Miami Republican offered rare words of praise Wednesday for the Obama administration, saying he's been impressed with its response to the earthquake that leveled Haiti.
"We have here a lot of partisan differences and debate," Diaz-Balart said at an earthquake briefing for Florida lawmakers. "But with regard to the response of the Obama administration, all decisions and actions should be commended. I think all Americans should be proud of the way the administration acted from the first minute. All actions and subsequent decisions I commend."
