    What amazes me about this president is...Even with all of his eloquence and butterfly twaddle, he can sit down with the common man and have a beer. I think the Beer Summit will go down in history as a profound and substantial contribution of the Obama administration much the same way as the Bay of Pigs for Kennedy and the Berlin Wall for Reagan...IF it doesn't completely dwarf them both. Only history will tell...It does show a make it happen spirit that offers extreme potential to an already robust and forthright administration...

    On foreign policy Obama has broke more promises than a gay promise keeper in a San Francisco bath house.

    And thank God for that.

    No, I'm just having some fun. I really hope though that Obama can get a grip and work with the Repubs on real change but it's not looking that way with all of the pantsh**ters that he has hanging around his administration.

    Re: Do you think Obama is living up to his promises?

    What specifically did he promise, and what specifically did he do ?

    Links maybe ? to both promise and action ?

    Re: Do you think Obama is living up to his promises?

    Hasn't quite completed the action part, has he ?

    On January 22, 2009, President Obama stated that he ordered the government to suspend prosecutions of Guantanamo Bay detainees for 120 days in order to review all the detainees' cases to determine whether and how each detainee should be prosecuted. A day later, Obama signed an executive order stating that Guantanamo Detention Camp would be closed within the year.[9][187] His plan encountered a setback, however, when incoming officials of his administration discovered that there were no comprehensive files concerning many of the detainees, so that merely assembling the available evidence about them could take weeks or months.[188] In May, Obama announced that the prosecutions would be revived [4]
    Is there a detainee at Gitmo right now ? Then is it closed ?
