Obama to Order Gitmo Shut Down - ABC News

President Barack Obama will sign three executive orders Thursday, to close the detainee camp at the Guantanamo Bay military facility within a year and to establish new rules and guidelines on interrogation methods and the treatment of detainees, sources who have seen a draft of the orders tell ABC News.

January 21st is coming up awfully soon and now they have plans to not close it for YEARS..

Another example of a president who talks, and does, and then gets facts..
We really shouldn't close it. We own it. It's secure, and there is simply no reason to move those people to our shores. Very risky.

The real key is that a third party COULD be more than a "spoiler". The problem is that America in general is filled with a bunch of dumba--es who MUST voted Repub or Demo.

It should bother you...you will be helping to pay for it.

The biggest problem is that McCain would have been the same way.
False. McCain wanted to freeze spending, not go hog wild like obama has done.

I will be voting third party next time. I am sick of the lies, lies and more lies. I just can't believe I let myself buy into the Obama hype.
Next time, actually listen to what a candidate is saying and don't get hypnotized by the rhetoric, platitudes and cliches.

And then look at the record....if you would have done that with a critical eye, there is NO WAY you could have voted for this fraud.

So he lied? Or maybe he was to ambitious? I'll go with B. Since they still plan on closing Guantanamo down.


This site seems to agree with me too. Not a broken promise

To imput progressive govenment programs, taxes have to be raised in some form or fashion. I'd say that 95% of us who voted Obama knew this and are completely okay with it. Sorry if anyone was duped into thinking he meant "No new taxes" like the elder Bush meant. Obama ceratinly did not mean "No new taxes". He meant "No income tax increases on those making under this amont per year".


if you are happy with your vote, yippee for you
I am happy with my vote for Mccain, I can rest some what easy that I at least voted for who I felt would be good for the country and not some hack like Obama clearly is
what Obama ran on was NO TAXES NONE< NOT ONE DIME
but the taxes is not what was important to me, it is what is best for all of us
Obama ran on CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN
horse crap
he was going to CHANGE WASHINGTON
horse crap
he ran on being TRASPARENT
horse crap
he has hired on some of the worst scumbs in Washington
I have seen a lot of presidents in my day, the first one I voted for was
McGovern, I have always voted for the democrats
but this party is so slimy and rotten and Obama is the worst I have seen
to date, and he is just warming up

Because third parties are as useless as **** on a boar. They take up valuable space and oxygen. Nobody gives a rip, because they're almost always far the Right or far to the Left.
