When Obama left the stage, Castro stood alongside Cuba’s ancient prima ballerina, Alicia Alonso, held up both hands in clasped fashion, and grinned broadly. “He said a lot of nice things, and he was very polished, but let’s see what the reality is.” I noted that Raúl himself had applauded Obama in the Teatro. Their pushback came swiftly, during that evening’s televised broadcast of a program called “Mesa Redonda” (“The Roundtable”), in which several apparatchiks sat around humorlessly dissecting the implications of the Obama visit.
Cubans in the audience shouted “,” as if to acknowledge the shared triumph of Obama’s visit and the reconciliation under way between the two nations. Later that day, in a meeting with a friend who is a longtime loyalist of the Revolution, I asked her what she had thought of Obama’s speech. He hadn’t signalled any doubts, and indeed he had accompanied Obama to the Cuba-U. baseball game afterward; we had all seen the two of them chummily seated together, talking animatedly. On Wednesday, , Cuba’s official Communist Party newspaper, ran an editorial titled “What Obama Says and Doesn’t Say,” in which the writer pointed out that Obama had used a teleprompter during his speech—“something the people can’t see”—and questioned the sincerity of his intentions.
Obama also deftly balanced appeals for greater freedom in Cuba with acknowledgements of endemic American ills, such as racism.
Raúl Castro’s presence in the theatre audience seemed to signal his endorsement for much of what Obama said—or at least a certain acquiescence to its spirit. My friend’s reaction was an early hint that Cuba’s deep state, in the form of its Communist Party hard-liners, was unhappy.
