There goes the neighborhood if Gitmo closes and terrorist prisoners get to be incarcerated in the U.S. of A.
Give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. But no detainees, dammit.
President Obama was wrong to try and close the prison at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. What are you going to do with these slugs? At first assumption, the ranch down yonder in Crawford, Texas, was a good choice — followed by Dick Cheney’s undisclosed location.
Leave them where they are. Now there was some militia state like Montana that said the detainees are welcomed there. Ya, for target practice.
The liberal pundits think those prisoners are being mistreated where they are now. Hell, send them to Cheney’s home state of Wyoming — where torture is probably a sacrament.
Obama wants bipartisanship — he got it Wednesday. The Senate voted overwhelmingly to keep the prison open at Gitmo and to squash the transfer of any detainees to facilities here in the land of the free and the brave.
Democrats and Republicans voted agin it 90 strong out of the 96 present.
Keep them in Cuba (the detainees, not the Dems and GOP) — and if some of them are there on false pretenses, prove it.
While no fan of Dick Cheney and his torture tactics, what’s done is done. Build a Gitmo wing in the Bush Library!
Obama doesn’t know what to do with him — and he knows everything.
It’s a big loss for the president, who was moving right along gathering momentum while he may.
Maybe this show of bipartisanship will bring the two parties together.
Naw. They only come together when it means war or its after effects.
This could be the window of opportunity the GOP was hanging around looking in on like some collective peeping Toms.
They were right about this issue all along. And the Dems followed suit. Just say no to Gitmo, in places like the Heartland.
The GOP needed a victory of sorts. They keep digging their own grave by putting nitwits out there speaking the language of the defeated.
That would be RNC chairman Michael Steele who, speaking to the faithful on Tuesday, said the Republican Party will no longer apologize for ghosts of Republicans past. He later used the phrase “My bad.”
“This change, my friends, is being delivered in a tea bag. And that’s a wonderful thing,” Steele told the crowd of happy millionaires.
The Republicans have got to stop it with the tea bag taxes thing. It’s too Fox News. The party needs to try another libation. Make it “near-beer” in honor of W.
At least the GOP plans to table the resolution to call Democrats the “Democrat Socialist Party.”
Every good American believes in a strong two-party system. But when one of them starts to sound plain stupid …
So far this week, so good. You guys are on a roll.
What’s that? Cheney’s going to speak tomorrow about fighting terrorism in a post-Republican world…
This guy never learns. It’s smile and the world smiles with you. Snear and you snear alone.
