Bush on Cuba

From President Bush’s commencement address at Miami-Dade College, April 28, 2007:

“Some of you still have loved ones who live in Cuba, and wait for the day when the light of liberty will shine upon them again. That day is nearing. The reign of every tyrant comes to an end, yet the desire for freedom is never-ending. In Cuba and across the world, all who struggle for freedom have a friend in the United States, and we will stand with them until that struggle is won.”

These are perfunctory and passive words, but in that the setting is a brief commencement address, I don’t think there is a lot to analyze here. He was in Miami and had to mention Cuba and he did so, as briefly as possible.
