    I wonder if that $8.5 billion to ACORN includes all that loot they're going to get for doing the census next year? If you think things are bad now, wait'll Obongo and his ACORN pals get through with the census and redistrict us!! I guess they might even have to make districts that cross state lines so everyone can share in wonderful utopias like Memphis, Murderapolis, Detoilet, etc. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

    Obama spent $200 million bribing the island of Palau to take 17 Gitmo prisoners without Congress' approval. He shipped 4 Gitmo prisoners to Bermuda (the cost of the bribe has yet to be determined) without a single vote from Congress. He took over General Motors without a single vote from Congress. He has set up middleman organizations to skirt Congressional oversight so he can funnel bailout money as he sees fit http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...040303910.html . He has taken the congress-bypassing Czar system to unheard of new heights. Maybe you didn't see his memo to Republicans...he won the election and can do what he wants. Apparently, closing Gitmo is something he doesn't want to do.

    What did he say?
    I need some lefty to explain and rationalize this.

    To the untrained ear it sounds as though he is promising to shut down GITMO.

    Could someone spin this for me please?

    My question is not about the speed of the dismantling of Guantanamo. It is proceeding, if slowly.
    My question is why the Bush administration detained 17 Chinese muslims that it declined to classify as enemy combatants?

    All the Bush bashing is merely to conceal the incompetence of the current occupant of the White House. Its a diversion pure and simple, but it won't work with most Americans.

    A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of widths.
