23. I am of the belief he has not
closed it (gitmo) not because he is afraid of being called names but rather he is thinking in the long term and in the long term he probably doesnt want to give them (the republicans) any real ammo to use against him than he already has with healthcare and the fact we are deeply in debt (which is really more the fault of the senate and congress) during the upcoming 2012 elections.
Assuming he wins re-election we might very well see a closing of it finally where as if a republican wins it you can be sure they wont close it and might well decide to expand it for other prisoners including some of our own citizens.
