Blame the Senate Democrats

By Creature

Closing Gitmo should be a no brainer. With today's Gallup poll showing Americans are not too keen on it closing, it is not. I blame Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats. I know the GOP, led by Cheney, were out in force against the closing, but it wasn't until the Democrats caved that the conversation changed. Suddenly it was bi-partisan to oppose the closing. Suddenly the GOP's rallying cry changed to "look 90 Senators agree."

I understand the Democrats voted against funding, not the closing itself, but they should have known the optics of the whole thing would stink and that the GOP would welcome the wedge. It's time to reeducate the people. Maybe this time the Senate Democrats will play along.
