PBO is practicing what seems to be the Obama/Pelosi/Reid policy of doing business which is "you have to pass the bill to see what is in the bill" mentality. He signed the legislation to close GITMO and then looked into what exactly was going and who exactly was being held there. He puts his carts before his horses and realizes it is backwards. The studies that show that a good percentage of the detainees return to fight us again should be of concern. The fact that the people there are detained because they pose a threat to our national security should have caused him pause, to study, and then to decide what is best. He just signed thinking we would figure out what to do later. We are the ones who pay the price.

It would be easy for any one of us to say ___ failed as President because of x,y or z when that President didn't actually fail, he just had different measuring stick for success.
Well perception is often bigger than reality, hence the plethora of public opinion polls!! You can slice and dice the past 60 years worth of presidential leadership and determine who succeeded and who failed based on a number of outcomes! I love how you can rationalize "one man's failure is another man's success!!" That's hilarious!!
Tell me, what did YOU think if Bush's measuring stick for success?! :o)

Why was Bush castigated for locking them up and tossing the key? Why were those who wanted them there subjected to being called vile names? And ~ it IS a legitimate question ~ why is Obama given such a pass and patted on the back for finally figuring out what Bush and others already knew? The same people praising Obama are the ones who labeled Bush a moron ... but he figured it out months before the 'smart' one. Answer by Farmlady09.
