ANOTHER CAMPAIGN PROMISE BITES THE DUST
While he was in campaigning mode, Barack Obama made a big deal about the detainees at Guantanamo Bay. He promised swift action after he took office to get them released. In fact, as I recall, that was even on his first 100 days list.

People in the know about the detainees said it would not be possible ... that it is a difficult situation ... that many of the detainees are pretty scary and dangerous people.

Wow, over the weekend, one of Obama's staff members said that there's no way that the Gitmo folk will be one of Obama's first 100 day initiatives. These are scary, dangerous people, the staffer said -- much work has to be done yet on that situation.

So, another promise that helped get Obama elected bites the dust.

I, on the other hand, continue to be pretty pleased with the guy.

Is anyone out there who supported Obama upset to see his campaign promises fall to the ground like crumpled waste paper? I would be.

Okay, I was maybe being a little overly dramatic and not so nice especially since we're so early in the game that technically it isn't even the game yet.

Like I said, though, so far I am very pleased. I do not like his Labor Secty pick but other than that I am just about as pleased as punch. (Okay, I may be a little prone to exaggerations today.)
