Mitt Romney, another Republican presidential hopeful, also was interviewed earlier this week on Radio Mambi. He said the right thing: "America must always be ready in the event of any military incursion by Castro or Chavez against the people of America."
Essentially, these interviews are nothing but tests to see if political candidates are saying the right things on their campaign. It has nothing to do with them being honest.
Anyway, by the end of the interview, Perez-Roura suggested that if McCain didn't have the guts to accept La Beligerancia, then he should support an actual naval blockade on Cuba, like during the Missile Crisis. By then both sides had enough. The tension was so obvious that at one point Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez intervened to defend McCain from Armando's fury.
Near the end, McCain jokingly (but most likely honestly) pointed out that from now on "I must take the Mayor with me wherever I go."
Haha... hehe... (sigh).
