Read it here first: Cuban Voters in Florida Could Determine the Outcome of the Election

Thursday, July 29, 2004 | 10:25 AM

As we have noted recently and on several occasions in the past, Cuban American voters in Florida continues to be a potential problem for President Bush in the upcoming election.

One of the small media outfits in town finally discovered this same issue:

"Critics say the measures, which were laid out in a policy report from a presidential commission led by Secretary of State Colin L. Powell, are chiefly intended to add to backing for President Bush among Cuban-Americans, a group White House advisers have acknowledged is central to his re-election strategy.

Paradoxically, some of the critics say, several provisions - like a tightening of travel restrictions and a curb on relief packages - may backfire, harming Mr. Bush's chances in Florida, a crucial swing state."

Sorry for the snarky attitude on this story, but where have you been for the past four months?
