There's no excuse for the partisan press. But the outcome is positive, as Don Surber says:
For two years, Barack Obama ragged on President Bush and Gitmo. Now that he has the responsibility for protecting the national security, he must be more cautious -- more Bush-like. . . But give the guy a break. He’s only been on the job 6 months. He is smart enough to realize now how nonsensical all his campaign trash talk about Gitmo was.Campaigning is easier than governing, which Obama seems to understand regarding foreign policy. If only the media could nudge him away from the campaign toward the center on economic issues like healthcare and cap-and-trade.
