Oh, bra-VO Senate Democrats!

From Politico:
In a setback for President Barack Obama, Senate Democrats said Tuesday they will strip out $80 million in new funding in a wartime spending bill to begin the process of closing the Guantanamo detention facility.

The action comes as Senate Republicans have warned that they will offer an amendment to the same $91.3 billion measure barring the administration from relocating any of the detainees to American soil.

  1. The Rs are helpless to pass any amendment, or even get it out of committee. What are the Ds afraid of?

    A guess. That Ms. Pelosi might still be two heartbeats away from the Presidency in early 2010. This would be the same Pelosi whose lies about interrogation are so transparent that birds are smacking up against them. I suspect that Ds in the Senate and House aren't willing to hand over that campaign issue without at least token resistance.
