Capitol Hill Cubans: Two Castro-visa wrongs don't make a right. And why Obama's is worse

From the Capitol Hill Cubans blog on today's Castro-visa controversy (hypertext links are mine):

Today, national Republicans criticized the Obama Administration for granting a U.S. visa to Cuban dictator Raul Castro's daughter, Mariela. Democrats have responded by pointing to the Bush Administration, which gave Mariela Castro a visa in 2002.

The fact is that two wrongs don't make a right -- both the Bush and Obama Administrations erred in doing so.

But it's actually worse now. Prior to Raul Castro becoming dictator-in-chief in 2006, few non-Cuba observers even knew that Raul had a daughter (let alone two). Since that time, the Cuban dictatorship has turned Mariela Castro into its most prominent public relations figure.

In any event, no one could protest the Bush administration granting of a visa to Mariela in 2002 because it was not reported in the news and no one knew until now.
