  • Liveblogging Obama’s Detainee Speech: Obama Can't Stop Campaigning

    When will the president realize he can’t govern by continuing to run a campaign against the last president?

    Obama faces the challenges as Bush. In the end, he is adopting many of the same policies….why can’t just admit that. Moving prisoners from GITMO, for example, just changes geography it is not a change in detention policy.

    One Response to Liveblogging Obama’s Detainee Speech: Obama Can't Stop Campaigning

    1. ELVA says:

      GITMO was established by many, many careful thinking leaders, and I for one can't understand Obama thinking his own one man decision is more important than that of our leaders who really care about the saftey of Americans. Turning these criminals loose on society would be like releasing approximately 200 Charlie Mansons to commit unspeakable horror onto innocent citizens. I can only believe it's to fullfill an uneducated campaign promise. Why can't he admit he was wrong to make that promise???
