New poll results are devastating for Obama's Gitmo plan | Byron York | Washington Examiner

When will they let us forget about how grievous a fault it is to hold prisoners in Guantánamo? Maybe soon, from the looks of the following. How can politicians oppose such overwhelming public sentiment? It's all over now except the clarifications and confusion. In the end, we'll have pretty much the same system Bush installed.

New poll results are devastating for Obama's Gitmo plan | Washington Examiner
When virtually the entire opposition party, plus 68 percent of independents, plus 42 percent of your own party oppose something you want to do, then you're in trouble.

Most people don't agree that Gitmo has weakened US national security.

The significant thing about the entire policy regarding not only GITMO, but non-combatant prisoners and anti-terrorism policies more broadly, is that Obama and Democrats used this in the last election as a key issue on which they claimed was nothing less than a violation of the Constitution. Now Obama is maintaining renditions, the prison in Bagram, domestic wiretapping, indefinite detention without trials, military tribunals and arrests without warrant anywhere in the world. And, oh yes, there are a growing number of assassinations of suspected Taliban and al queda leaders, which of course is a far more moral and ethical approach than capturing them and using enhanced interrogation techniques. The hyrocisy, lies and corruption of this Administration and Congress are nothing short of outrageous! We have quickly established an Orwellian world of doublespeak where red means white and white means black. Thanks liberal slime.

Close GITMO, Mr. President. That is what you were elected for among other things. This poll, at best, is an outlier. My guess is they only called places like ID, WY, and GA which have strong Republican support but no intellectuals. This is still America. Try them in court or release them where you picked them up. It really is that simple.

In this poll the American people are providing evidence that the Democrat party manufactured outrage over Gitmo to damage the Bush Administration shamlessly chosing political gain over national security. The Democrat chickens are coming home to roost.
