House of cards

Well its been a few weeks now since everybody told us that Dick Cheney out front was a bad idea, lets see how that’s worked out

Americans are overwhelmingly opposed to closing the detention center for suspected terrorists at Guantanamo Bay and moving some of the detainees to prisons on U.S. soil, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds.

By more than 2-1, those surveyed say Guantanamo shouldn’t be closed. By more than 3-1, they oppose moving some of the accused terrorists housed there to prisons in their own states.

There is only one conclusion to make:

This polls adds to the evidence that Barack Obama has lost the national debate with Dick Cheney, and that he may want to quit having it. He may remain personally popular, but as these numbers show, that won’t stay the case for long if he closes Gitmo and brings the terrorists to the US.

Remember all those brilliant pundits who fell for the don't fight back line that the media was touting. It's the same line that we here on the Sotomayor nomination. If they are actually interested in winning they should take heed. These guys are lightweights who only care about the numbers. They wilt at the slightest push. The way to win is offense.

This entire administration is a house of cards just waiting to fall flat if we are willing to push. Remember if Frasier answers the bell in the 15th he wins.
