Dems. Won’t Give Obama Money for Gitmo Closing

There’s a first time for everything!!!

The Democratic controlled Senate has blocked President Obama’s plan to close Guantanamo and send the detainees into the U.S.  Earlier this week the Senate voted, 90-6, to block the transfer of 240 inmates and $80 million to close down the facility.  Throughout the election President Obama repeatedly pledged to close the facility within the first couple months of office.  However, Obama is getting hit with the harsh reality being a great orator and schmoozing foreign diplomats will NOT allow him to walk all over them.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who is facing immense amounts of criticism from the right side, said the facility will stay open until the president has offered a comprehensive plan on where the detainees will go.
