The left’s favorite documentary maker responded to President Obama’s move to normalize full diplomatic relations with Cuba in what is being deemed as “the most significant shift in U.S. policy toward the communist island in decades.” The president’s announcement of restoring relationship between the two countries, said Michael Mooore, showed that Cuba’s “pissy whiny neighbor” has finally grown up:
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) had a much different response to the president’s moves to restore the political relationship with Cuba, arguing that rather than furthering human rights, it would only serve to solidify the Castro regime:
"This is going to do absolutely nothing to further human rights and democracy in Cuba," Rubio said in a recent interview. "But it potentially goes a long way in providing the economic lift that the Castro regime needs to become permanent fixtures in Cuba for generations to come."
Moore has generally portrayed the Castros' communist country in a positive light. In his 2007 documentary Sicko, Moore championed Cuba's universal healthcare system over America's.
