    Great! Now the hot air out of this feckless gasbag will be in two languages.

    Wally – Very strange comment of yours. Nowhere in the above article was it written that the interview was conducted in two languages. ‘Feckless gasbag’ – in your case, pot meet kettle.

    Diaz Balart- the polls you quote are erroneous and next time you interview OUR president, don’t lie about facts and show some respect. Now that Americans are learning the truth about Obamacare they are learning to love it. Poor people are starting to be taken care of medically. You mentioned nothing of this. This is not CUBA and what you guys are used to there.
