    There's Hope-n-Change and then there's reality. Looks like reality won out.

    I disagree. It sounds more to me that congress made sure we would not do the right things.

    Yes. They lacked the courage to fight the fear mongering. I keep telling you guys this isn't about party, but about right and wrong.

    You mean, the very real concern about trying a notorious terrorist in a city that already suffered the worst terrorist attack on US soil? You don't see the potential target that could make NY - again? Why, on earth, do you want to bring them here? In many cases, their own countries won't have them back (although, why they get to make that call, I'm not sure).

    No I don't. I think that was merely fear mongering. We can't abide by such fears. We either have core values, or we don't.
