Promises, promises...

They said if I voted for John McCain, I was voting for four more years of George W. Bush...and they were right!

President Obama on Monday lifted the ban he imposed two years ago on military trials for detainees at the Guantanamo Bay prison, ending his bid to move most terrorism trials to civilian courts and pushing his already busted deadline for shuttering the island prison indefinitely forward.

The reversal came as Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates visited Afghanistan and indicated that he was willing to keep a presence of U.S. forces in the war-torn country beyond the Obama administration’s 2014 pullout goal, highlighting again the difficulty the president has had moving from the policies of President George W. Bush.

It's not even funny anymore how much of a coward and liar our president proves himself to be every day.  The man can't even stick to his own convictions, if he ever had any.
