They were told if they voted for a Republican that Gitmo would stay open
And, they were right:
- The current President of the United States campaigned on a platform that included the closing of the prison for international terrorists at Gitmo.
- Gitmo is, in fact, still open. But they’ll get to it Real Soon Now (SPOILER WARNING: they won’t).
- The Right noted at the time that Gitmo was going to remain open. On more than one occasion. We, in fact, told people time again and again and again and again that Barack Obama was not going to close Gitmo. Which means that nobody really has an excuse for being surprised.
One of the minor points of record that Barack Obama is going to be reminded of in the next few months.
The Obama campaign has decided on a new campaign slogan – “Forward”.
As you might imagine, the right is having a ball with that on Twitter under the hashtag #FORWARD.
You might want to join in the fun.
