Obama: "A new beginning for US and Cuba" and Sen. Marco's run for the highest office

PBO is not finished, no lame duck president here, he is still adding to his ever impressive and growing resume:
  • Economy  humming along and adding 200,000 plus new jobs for several months
  • Unemployment cut to 5.8%
  • Cheap gas -- always a holiday season plus
  • Dow Jones at all time highs
  • Historic climate treaty with China
  • Economic sanctions hitting Russian President Putin where it hurts the most -- the wallet
  • Forbes Magazine naming him the best modern era economic president -- sorry Ronnie, the Forbes index has Obama surpassing you with ease.
