7. I found it!
Edited on Sun May-03-09 03:41 PM by bluebellbaby
Just checking in...

I thought this change in President Obama's position is crazy...

On one hand he claims to be "for the rule of law", campaigns on it, gets elected then does the old "flip-flop"...

And no one noticed...

It is shameful...

If this is "the change we can believe in"...then he's got some explaining to do...

My only possible defense of this change is that evidence they have...that can't be revealed...due to "national security"...has to be overwhelming...and maybe these final "detainees" are truly dangerous...

That's the only defense I will offer...and it's full of holes to even post it...but I guess I have to...

But if he makes exceptions to his own beliefs and the foundation of our own "rule of law"...then maybe he didn't actually hold those beliefs...but said he did....???

And if he didn't tell us the truth on this...what's next...
