Havana (CNN) A day after making a historic arrival in Cuba, U.S. President Barack Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro expressed hope that reforms would finally arrive to the island, despite the persistent grievances on both sides.

In an extraordinary sign of the shifting attitudes, both leaders took questions from reporters following prepared statements, a rarity in a country where media remains under strict state control.

"We have decades of profound differences," Obama said when asked by CNN's Jim Acosta what his message on human rights was during his "frank conversation" on the issue with Castro. "I told President Castro that we are moving forward and not looking backwards."

And our FearLess Leader was snubbed by the Commie POS when he
landed. He was only met by low level flunkies.

And still our ClueLess one stayed. Christ what a loser.

He probably expected to be greeted as a conquering hero.
