What’s (p)Resident Obama so NEUROTIC about closing Gitmo for?
Gitmo is as good as any, plus it’s offshore.
There are problems putting them somewhere else, but why not GITMO? Give me a logical explanation and I’ll not only listen, I may agree with you, but I suspect something is askew here – something to worry about!
My problem with moving them are:
- Why build another facility?
- Or, if they’re not going to, why put them in existing facilities where they can convert Muslim prisoners to extremists? NOW THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING TO WORRY ABOUT! IF THAT WERE THE INTENT, I WOULD CALL THAT TREASONOUS!
- I noticed today, even with all the uproar, this was still the very first time (p)Resident Obama bothered to assure the public these terrorists would NOT be released into the U.S. He didn’t know what people were concerned about? Baloney!
But give me some logical reason to move the Gitmo residents; as I said, I’ll listen!
As I listened to Obama today, and as usual, he sounds almost rational and convincing.
Let me explain to you thought, why he was not convincing – at least not quite, . . . not for me.
All the reasons he had were based on . . . . directly or indirectly having the moral authority.
I ain’t listening to someone who allowed a baby to die in a cold storage room because of the legislation he promoted and then lies about it . . . . because of that, (p)Resident Obama has no moral authority!

But I listened, willing at any moment to agree and change my mind. I would have if I trusted him, but with his stand on, and legislation for abortion, I had serious doubts and cannot bring myself to trust a man like that!
Then, Vice President Cheney came on.
Not only was he rational and logical, (the text of his speech is here in case you missed it ) but he challenged (p)Resident Obama to release the redacted stuff – Cheney explained why and it not only makes sense; I’m now convinced we do not need an appeaser as a president! The Senate lined up against (p)Resident Obama for the first time and it was significant – 90 to 6! What he said today, should not have changed anyone’s mind – very few anyway . . . . I side with V.P. Cheney!
Keep Gitmo open. Release the ones you determine should go free, but NOT in our nation!
