Good Job, Obama! Now Replace Hillary.

by Stephen Gordon

I’ll sure I’ll be voicing plenty of criticism about Obama over the next four to eight years, but I’d like to take this time to say thanks to Obama for shutting down Gitmo.

Hopefully, Obama is still opposed to torture, as well. As a sign of good faith, he could replace Hillary, as having to listen to her grating voice for four or more years is indeed an “act by which severe pain or suffering, whether physical or mental, is intentionally inflicted on a person.”

  1. Re Gitmo – all he did was announce his intention to make a decsion about studying when to possbily close Gitmo pursuant to alternatives at the appropriate yet to be determined time should the oppurtunity present within hopefully the next year if nothing changes (AND we can find somewhere else to do much the same thing but get credit for closing Gitmo but not ending the practices thereof).

    As for Hilary – give Barack credit for this – he has removed from the Senate the most annoying, troublesome and nincompoop senators (under 80 years old) and brought them into the administration where they can be better watched, controlled and eventually fired.
