Castro’s Retirement Equals Status Quo for Cubans

For years, many Cubans have been awaiting the passing of Fidel. Americans – and Cuban Americans – have seen his imminent departure as the coming out party for the true Cuba. The numerous times Castro was believed to have reached room temperature, there were parties in the streets of south Florida.

With Raul Casto – Fidel’s younger brother – almost a shoo-in to be the next leader in Cuba, we’re not going to see parties in the streets.

What does this mean for those who thought that once Castro was dead, everything would be a celebration? Honestly, since he’ll now pass away while not in power, there will be no great change in the day to day operations of Cuba’s government. By clearly indicating his successor, Fidel has guaranteed status quo for the next few years.

Michelle Malkin, Redstate and LGF all have more, and Michelle’s even got the Fidel death watch doll on display.
