Carlos Beruff glad Barack Obama visiting Cuba, hopes he doesn’t come back.

On Wednesday, Senate hopeful Carlos Beruff announced a March 20 visit to Miami to join a group protesting President Barack Obama’s trip to  Cuba.

In a two-paragraph statement, Beruff didn’t stray too far from GOP intransigence regarding the U.S.-Cuba thaw.

Carlos Beruff said, President Obama has given the Castro regime exactly what they want: more money. And we have gotten nothing in return. The Castro regime continues to jail dissidents and suppress human rights while supporting our enemies. Whether it’s Cuba or Iran, President Obama is a terrible negotiator who has weakened the United States’ position abroad. ”

Beruff then noted that his family “fought alongside thousands of Cubans to overthrow Batista and then Castro because they were a threat to the basic principles of democracy and human rights.”

Then the money quote: “Considering his track record, it’s no real surprise that President Obama is visiting Cuba. In fact, I’m glad he is. I think he should stay there.”
