No. The ever tricky Obama has a different approach:
Those who favor a continuation of our failed Cuba policy are a reflexive lot with a muddled argument. They’re the usual myopic tough guys–John McCain and Lindsey Graham immediately jumped on the President after his Cuba announcement today–who have no idea of the seductive power of the American way of life in the rest of the world. I can understand why the corroding Iranian regime would want to keep us out (a sign in Tehran: “When the Great Satan praises us, we shall mourn”). I’ve always thought: then let’s recognize the hell out of them. Let ‘em mourn. Let the Revolutionary Guard try to fend off Kanye West and Star Wars. Good luck with that.And this is why the Mullahs that run Iran are hostile to the US. They know that when their people have a choice between singing and dancing to the Happy Song from Pharrell Williams or to continue to follow the time honored repressive folk ways spawned by a desert religion, more of 'em will choose to dance.
Its not that hard. Do you want to play video games 10 hours a day or would you rather spend 10 hours a day praying under the threat of being caned? Again. Not a very hard choice.
