Putting the cart before the horse much?

Oh, Obama. Didn’t think too far ahead, didja?

I realize that in the first tumultuous months of your presidency, it was important to take DECISIVE. ACTION. ‘Cause your platform was Change.

It might have been prudent to consider the direction of that change. And maybe the consequences? Just an idea.

Sure, the US is the unpopular fat bully in the world’s high school locker room. You’ve made great strides to change that- opening us up to talks with communist dictators and A-bomb-toting radicals, which is always a nice gesture.

But closing Gitmo without any clear idea of where to send the detainees? Pardon me while I snicker at your lack of foresight. And then cry, because our country is in the hands of someone who lacks that basic characteristic of maturity- thinking about the consequences of one’s actions.

I for one will not be signing up to host an exchange terrorist. Call me crazy, but somehow things can’t be THAT bad if the detainees are allowed out of their cells for 22 hours a day and have just harvested a bumper crop of Gitmo-grown tomatoes. Not to mention the “optional interviews”, which have replaced “interrogation”.

Think, President McDreamy. Then act.

Even my five-year-old can appreciate that lesson.

  1. Well, he has to make EVERYBODY love him. Even the terrorists. Since nobody wants these thugs in their neighborhood, maybe the President can put up a few in the White House with HIS wife and kids.

    I agree with mamaneeds2rant. They can stick them in that bowling alley we hear so much about…

    Hmmm, I concur with the above. However, I can also see the other side of ye ‘ole coin-a lot of these detainees have been down in said place for quite some time without trial. But it doesn’t does not change the fact that there is zero plan in place for the the detainees if they close down. Maybe El Jefe can just let them all go free-that way we look more sympathetic and cuddly to the rest of the world. Why stop there? Lets give them all some bail-out money so it looks really good…we seem to be doing that a lot lately…..

    I love a good soapbox rant. Someday I am going to learn how to make a blog badge and it will look like a soapbox. You will be the first recipient.
