NEWS ITEM: Cuban dissident Jorge Luis García “Antúnez” and his wife come to Miami for medical care. Garcia pays the U.S. back for its hospitality by calling President Obama a "leftist."
From the Miami Herald's Juan O. Tamayo:
Garcia also said that he was not surprised by President Barack Obama’s handshake with Raul Castro earlier this month “because my impression of Obama is not very good ... He is a leftist.”
García, who spent 17 of his 49 years in prison, and his wife, Yris Tamara Perez Aguilera will return Tuesday to their hometown of Placetas in central Cuba. They are considered to be among the most active government critics on the island.But Garcia didn't stop there.
Both received medical treatment while in the United States, he said.
Local 10's Bob Norman also got Garcia on tape taking a shot at Obamacare: "If it comes from Obama, then it can't be a good plan," Antunez said.
So much for gratitude.
Have a nice trip back to Cuba, a**hole.
