    House Dems refuse funds to close Gitmo, relocate inmates

    This is a bunch of crap. Obama promises to close Gitmo, and what does his party do? Refuses to fund it. Closing Gitmo takes money or it can't really be done properly. But maybe the Democrats already knew that.

    Could this be just another case of say one thing but work behind the scenes to make sure it doesn't happen, that politicians in the past have done?

    What do YOU think?

    Meanwhile, Obama keeps talking about yet another accomplishment that may not happen. Who knows? Maybe next election cycle, he will tell everyone that he kept his promise to close down Gitmo, while the prisoners are still there, watching his speech and shaking their heads. LOL.

    Article is here.

    EDIT: OOPS. Looks like somebody beat me to this one.

    MODS: Please delete this thread. Thanx.

    Democrats are being cruel to the detainees.

    Nah, it's only fun if we're cruel. We don't want the Dems to get any credit.
