HAVANA, Cuba -- Say "Hola" to Cuba! On Wednesday morning, President Obama announced a budding relationship with Havana.

“I believe that we can do more to support the Cuban people… After all, these 50 years have shown that isolation has not worked,” he said.

“All this is going to do is give the Castro regime... the opportunity to manipulate these changes to perpetuate itself in power,” said Republican Senator Marco Rubio from Florida.
