Do you feel obama is a wimp for failing to close GITMO?
Please understand that obama has to balance politics with our goals and obama has maintained the most important goals we have, 1-abortion rights, 2-gay rights and 3-keeping goverment jobs the most highly paid jobs available. That means that closing GITMO has to go on the back burner.

He tried The GOP blocked him in every way. It is a touchy subject, but it is ironic that the party who claims to be fiscally conservative would block a very very expensive thing to continue.
