Hope and change

All promises have an expiration date:

The Obama administration is preparing an executive order that would formalize indefinite detention without trial for some detainees at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, but allow those detainees and their lawyers to challenge the basis for continued incarceration, U.S. officials said.

    And once again Holder can’t make the legal system work to his Commie way of thinking. How in the heck did he get anything done while running the DOJ for Janet Reno during the Clinton Admin is beyond me.

    Of course they do! When stupid promises meet reality usually the promises go overboard.

    Obama only gave those promises cause he lives in a fantasy world (as most liberals do.) But as president one comes down to earth for reality is a harsh mistress.

    The thing is, the Bush administration owned up to what they were doing, and explained a legal basis for it. Maybe you don’t agree with it, maybe you do. But they were not behaving in a lawless manner by their own detailed standards.

    But Obama and his people all made explicit, direct, unambiguous statements that it was not legal/constitutional. Flat out. And promised to “fix” it. Now, suddenly it is something that they not only have failed to “fix” but will affirmatively apply themselves. This is far more than mere hypocrisy, this is a brazen statement of willingness to behave in a lawless manner by their own standards.
