Obama on video flaunting Cuban cigar hours after capitulating to Cuba

Showing little regard or sensitivity to thousands of bitterly disappointed Cuban exiles, President Obama was captured on video enjoying the aroma of a Cuban cigar hours after announcing that he will restore diplomatic relations with the communist government of Cuba.

The cigar was given to the president Wednesday by a guest at a White House Hanukkah reception, who informed him that it was a Cuban cigar, according to the New York Post.

“Oh, nice!” Obama said, as he received the gift. The Post said Obama kept the cigar, but was not seen smoking it.

Babalu Blog noted that Obama’s insensitive display continues a long tradition of Democratic presidents and Cuban cigars, beginning with John F. Kennedy, who tried to scrape up as many as he could before his embargo went into effect, to William Jefferson Clinton, who… well, you know what he did with his Cuban.
