“If you didn’t get it done, then it’s your problem. And I accept that, that’s my job. So until I close Guantanamo Bay, they’re right, I haven't closed Guantanamo Bay.”— President Barack Obama in an interview with Charlie Rose responding to the question of whether he is "Bush-Cheney Lite" for continuing many of the Bush administration's national security policies.
"If you didn’t get it done, then it’s your problem."
I wish Obama would stop acting conciliatory and start acting pissed.
Not only that, but the current President promised us openness and transparency in government and broke that promise too. Here is an example:
To say that the President 'broke his promise' because his opponents in congress have succeeded in blocking his efforts to close Guantanamo is either ignorant or dishonest.
@ViableOp Not only that, but he looks like a saint compared to the previous administration.
The president is ignorant if he didnt realize that he needed congress to close Gitmo. Just like all the other empty promises he made on the campaign trail.
It is interesting that you dismiss your elected officials focus on their own jobs, rather than governing - in the name of attacking/mocking the president.
Kinda lends credit to the statement above that the GOP have no standards.
Nor any direction; except hate Obama.
Since before he was elected, actually.
Tell me curt - why do you think it that a group of white, older guys - hates this president so much?
Why do YOU?
And before you start with the typical right wing talking points, how about you discuss what he's attempted to do, and what congress stopped him from doing.
If you just say- poor Obama - it is ignoring the culpability of everyone you elected. At least Obama is trying. Congress is the problem - as the polls bear out.
I think it's actually pretty weak of you to say poor Obama. You may not like reality - but you can't escape it.
And Obama hasn't resorted to calling everyone anti-patriotic in order to get HIS agenda passed. He tried to appeal to congress intellectually, and rationally.
Hence his inability to work with them.
Thanks for electing ignorant, stupid, backwards people to represent you, Curt.
@curt3rd And he is naive for not realizing that he was dealing with hateful hostage takers when it comes to the Congress.
