Right now the man whom the right put on a pedestal as the most "brilliant military mind alive" agrees with Obama, and not with you. And righties can't squirm out of that reality with the "you didn't agree with him in 2007" defense.



    What are you babbling about?


    Read the move on ad. They are a bunch of hypocrites.



    Either way. Patreaus may agree with obama that "gitmo should be closed". but where are the meat and potatos?

    What does Moveon.org thinks have to do with Petraeus endorsing Obama? Does what StormFront thinks dictate who those on the right should and should not embrace?



    Hey man, aren't you one of the ones who claim Limbaugh speaks for all conservatives?

    My point is the same; here is my correction:

    But rather than farcically branding an obviously highly intelligent woman STATEMENT as being stupid, why not debate her claims and show where they could be stupid?


    Happy now?

    How did a thread on Gitmo and Petraeus become a thread on MoveOn? Ah yes, our right wing friends need to change the subject to something they are more comfortable with.

    A Plan? Are you seriously saying that you do not see evidence of a plan?

    Lets take a look at Gitmo. The order is pretty specific: it will be closed within a year. The prisoners cases will be reviewed and decisions will be made based on the circumstances of the cases, and other factors like the likelihood that the nation of origin will accept them. Those that are retained in custody will do so, most likely in a supermax prison, where they will eventually be brought to trail from crimes that we can prove they have committed .... in accordance with the principals of our constitution.

    I suppose that is not quite as simplistic as the 'off with their heads', or 'throw the lot of them into the Ocean,' but it marks a sharp break with 'secret' tribunals under which prisoners were convicted by evidence that they could not see and had no chance to refute. It also marks a sharpe break from the political pressure to 'find' the prisoners guilty under those conditions, conditions that were repeatedly struck down by our Supreme Court.

    You may not like the plan, but not liking a plan and not having a plan are two entirely different things.

    It's your paranoia that led you to believe that this was a critique of the Bush administration. It was a critique of those on the far left that felt Obama should have released prisoners from Gitmo on January 21, and have been critical that he has not yet done so.

    This is exactly what I was critiquing, I have no respect, WHATSOEVER, for far leftist groups like Moveon.

    My thoughts are that they will no doubt praise him for his endorsement. Though while condemning him for his previous decisions, thank him for finally coming around.

    MoveOn is a ludicrous group of individuals.




    My bad, I did not realize you all considered yourselves "kooks"..... Thought i made a distinction there. You all incorrectly infered "all"....
