Obama Tries to Restore Order on Gitmo, After Senate Blocks Closure Funds

President Obama will deliver a speech Thursday addressing plans to close the Guantanamo detention camp as Democrats back off support for funding the closure.


President Obama is trying to keep Democratic unrest from derailing his plans to close the Guantanamo Bay detention camp after the Senate voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to yank money for shuttering the prison.

The president is delivering a speech Thursday meant to shed light on how the administration expects to transfer 240 detainees off the island by January 2010.

The address appears overdue, considering the resistance and mixed messages coming from top-ranking Democrats over the issue on Capitol Hill.

By a vote of 90-6, the Senate approved an amendment to a war funding bill Wednesday that not only blocks supplemental funds from being used

  • Exactly, and your attached photo is perfect. Obama made a promise to get the "stupid vote" never giving a thought about the wisdom of such a move. Now REALITY injects itself and he's back to the SAME position Bush was in, being forced to chose between bad alternatives.

  • What a fraud BHO has revealed himself to be. Hopefully, he'll keep talking and at some point even the most dedicated liberals will see he's full of shit.

    We know that the majority of these inmates are die hard muslim extremists. We should just shoot them, as they'll be forgotten in a month, and no one will care.

    But it would be funny to put a few into supermax and watch them try to figure out which way is east.

  • Wow. 90-6. And this comes after an executive order? Is there dissent in the party? Dissent is actually good for everyone. Lots of people don't realize that. When all your politicians agree that's when you know you're living in a dictatorship.

    The rally cry for all these peopple to "have their day in court" is astonishing. The very people you have sympathy for would throw you down a sewer if only they had the chance.

  • Wasn't this post about Gitmo detainees? Why are we talking about Republican rallies? While we're at it let's talk about applesauce, and horse racing.

  • Could this be the first sign of a shift in the wind? Especially with Pelosi digging her hole deeper every time she opens her mouth about the CIA briefings.

  • Well, I'd rather talk about applesauce, but here goes. I have a LOT of liberal friends. Almost all of them hate America, and thus, hate themselves. They are self-hating white liberals like Janeane Garofalo, and instead of having any real opinions with which to base their arguments, they rely on the flawed liberal platitude of shouting racism from the rooftops.

    The problem with this is that boy has cried wolf so many times no one listens to him anymore. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have made More..

  • well neither of you called my avatar racist:
    "GooglyEyes: It see the bias in your avatar"

    translates from engrish to "I see the bias in your avatar" which is a statement that also applies to yours

    GooglyEyes later says: "Your degrading avatar of our first African American secretary of state does prove you are a cool aid drinking liberal asshole."
    replace SoS with POTUS and liberal with conservative and you have your avatar.

  • "LMAOatLibs" first off, your avatar is hysterical, I miss Farley so much and that bit was classic!

    Racist? cause of my avatar or the comment about the demographic make-up of the republican party (which is 100% accurate)? I will assume avatar. Sorry, but you cant call me racist for stating that blacks in the Republican party are little more than props (e.g. michael steele who was recently castrated financially and made to bow to the altar of limbaugh, or Powell who reputation was dest More..
