Obama to Visit Cuba?

A new Twitter account, called the Presidencia de Cuba, tweeted in both English and Spanish that President Obama would visit Cuba in March 2016. In all caps, no less. It is not a fake-looking Twitter account, but who knows. This is not being announced anywhere else, which makes it more doubtful.

I hope it's true, if for no other reason that it will make the primary season infinitely more entertaining. If indeed President Obama takes the bull by the horn and goes to Cuba in the same month as the Florida primary, he will seriously shake things up. It will be time to just get yourself some popcorn and sit back for the show.

At the same time, this "announcement" comes directly after this interview just yesterday:

MR. SEIB: Are you going to get to Cuba before you leave office? 
PRESIDENT OBAMA: You know, I don’t know if I’ll – I’ll get to Cuba, but what I know is is that a lot of Americans are going to get to Cuba over the next couple years.

Again, how knows? But it's fun to think about the possibility.

Update: now the Twitter account says Fidel is dead. Busy day. The previous tweets are gone. Bummer!
