Who's the weakest of them all (on Cuba policy)? Ron Paul & Newt Gingrich, anti-Castro blog says

Capitol Hill Cubans, a Washington D.C.-based anti-Castro blog, has a post up Thursday about the Republican presidential candidates' positions on Cuba. 

The blog's conclusion: The two weakest hopefuls on Cuba policy are Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich.

Paul, the blog says, "supports unilaterally lifting all sanctions towards Cuba and unconditionally normalizing relations with the Castro dictatorship."

And as for Gingrich? He "has expressed his support for the Obama Administration's policy of unlimited travel and remittances to Cuba (which has more than doubled the Castro regime's foreign currency reserves)."

According to the blog, which is edited by Mauricio Claver-Carone, director of the hardline U.S.-Cuba Democracy PAC:

Fortunately, the rest of the field (congruently) supports strengthening the pro-democracy movement, while depriving the dictatorship of the hard-currency it desperately needs.
