El Grito de Newt

Newt Gingrich is working on a plan to end the Castro Government by 2014, and he's thinking of covert operations, more money to support dissent, increased broadcasting, free radios for every Cuban, and more. See his interview with Yahoo News. He would also end the wet foot-dry foot policy so that Cubans picked up at sea would be admitted to the United States. Big new mission for the Coast Guard. The most interesting part of the interview is when he is asked whether he would reverse the increased travel that President Obama has permitted. His answer: "No." Which would indicate that he was not in full pander mode. Meanwhile, Mitt Romney picks up endorsements from Cuban American legislators plus former Rep. Diaz-Balart and minus Rep. Rivera.

Newt's plan = LOL.

The only thing he would actually do, if elected, would be to ban family/cultural travel from usa to cuba. (i know he said he won't, but after the miami legislators get through with him, he will have no choice). That's how they play down there.
