How You Know You're Winning

When the best the left can come up with in response to the growing opposition to closing Gitmo and moving the terrorist to a neighborhood near you is the absurd suggestion that the GOP is, by extension, disparaging corrections officers...
Put this together with the ludicrous statement from Rep. Adam Schiff (below) and it seems clear that the White House has failed to provide political guidance on this issue. No one on the left knows quite what to say or do in response to the steadily increasing attacks from the GOP, because no one knows quite what the White House is going to do with the detainees at Gitmo. This is why Reid is demanding specifics from the White House before allocating any funding. The fear is that even the White House doesn't quite know what do, but that didn't stop the president from signing the order to close Gitmo and patting himself on the back for his bold decision to reject the false choice between our security and his ideals.
