t’s been seven years since Barack Obama made one of his first pledges as president – to shut down the Guantánamo Bay prison. Now, it finally might be happening.

Mr. Obama’s chief-of-staff Denis McDonough said in an interview Sunday the commander-in-chief will make good on his promise by the end of his second term.

“The president has said from the beginning of this administration that we will close Gitmo because it’s bad for our national security and because it’s too costly,” Mr. McDonough said on “Fox News Sunday.”

    If he does close Gitmo, I suggest to the next POTUS, re-build and re-open Alcatraz, for the same reason.

    If this HAPPENS, you can BET Obama will turn that PIECE OF REAL ESTATE back OVER to the COMMUNIST CUBAN PRESIDENT, who will find a USE for it in the FUTURE to HOUSE and TORTURE our US MILITARY PERSONNEL!

    why doesn’t he just do the same in America, i’m sure Charles Manson and a others killer criminals deserve his executive order as much as guantanamo bay killers.

  • And just where is the gay boy planning on sending them? Hussein says they are too costly, well, how about cutting out one or two of your six or seven luxurious millions of dollar vacations, that would pay for the cost of Gitmo and the money is better spent keeping these animals locked up in Cuba than paying for you and your dog ugly tranny and fake kids spending it on your many, many, many vacations! Only thing we want from your worthless butt, Kenyan Muslim Boy, is your obituary!

    Closing Gitmo would be a very big mistake but that is the stuff that is being done by the Biggest Mistake of All.

    Here is what I say, if any of these Islamic pukes the Executive Anus has released kills an American Citizen anywhere on this planet, Obama should be arrested and charged with murder in the first degree. I don’t care what position you hold in our Gooberment, when you make a bad decision, there should be extreme consequences. Of course, the Executive Anus has released more murders and thugs into our society and the world than anyone in past history.

    Having watched this “performance” by McDonough Sunday, I can only say that he’s another lying Political snake working against AMERICANS for our Subversive president!

    Close obama’s pen & paper locker so there would be no more “executive orders”. Now THAT would be a major cost saving…
