Unless you have some evidence that Obama pushed for the inclusion of the detainee section of the bill (such as Bush pushed for the AUMF, and Cheney pushed for the legal justification for torture). Or is empty rhetoric going to be the sum total of your argument?
My real question is why is it that the only bills which seem to produce across the isle, bipartisan support are the bills which grossly expand government against the rights and liberties of the individual?
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
