Close Gitmo! (but we won’t pay for it)

Hooray! Barack Obama won the election! We can finally wash our pink t-shirts and celebrate the coming world peace! We can start dismantling all of the damage caused by the evil Bush Machine. Close Gitmo! Peace, love and granola!
Dems are happy to reverse anything Bush-related, but paying for it is a different story. “Amid complaints that terror suspects could be brought to the U.S., House Democrats on Monday rebuffed the Obama administration’s request for $50 million to relocate prisoners from the detention facility at Guantanamo, Cuba.” Where the hell did you think they would end up in the first place? Perhaps you should have thought this through before rushing to reverse a useful policy while still drunk from innauguration champagne?
