Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. - John Wayne

70% of Americans approve of Gitmo
by Bonjo
The continuing MSM torture of Americans is not having much effect:

A Rasmussen Reports survey conducted this week found that 36 percent of Americans say the detainees are being treated better than they deserve, and another 34 percent say they are being treated about right. Just one in five say the detainees are being treated unfairly, with 10 percent saying they do not know.

The poll asked: "Most of the prisoners at Guantanamo Bay are members of al Qaeda, the Taliban and other terrorist groups. Generally speaking, is the United States treating these prisoners unfairly, treating them better than they deserve, or treating them about right?"

The telephone poll of 1,000 Americans, conducted Monday and Tuesday, also found that only 14 percent agree with Sen. Richard J. Durbin, Illinois Democrat, who charged that prisoner treatment at Guantanamo is similar to the tactics used by the Nazi or Soviet regimes.
Apparently the majority of Americans find that serving three hot meals a day to people who want to murder Americans does not constitute abuse.

As with any issue, a minority of Americans disagree, and leading this minority is Nancy "Burnin' Down the House" Pelosi.

But Mrs. Pelosi and the top Democrats on the Armed Services, Government Reform and intelligence committees, at their Tuesday press conference, said a commission must look at the training and supervision of troops at detention facilities, at the "atmosphere created that permitted detainee abuse," and how high up the chain of command responsibility for the abuses should go.
In other words, Nancy "Burnin' Down the House" Pelosi wants to pin this on the president. Mind you, she's not upset that the detainees are allowed to pray five times a day, are given taxpayer-purchased Korans, get ample exercise, medical examinations, and recreation time. No, Pelosi wants to blame Bush based on the unsubstantiated claims from the very same people that wanted to kill Americans by flying hijacked airplanes into civilian office buildings.

Because such people would never lie to make America look bad...

Personally, as a general rule, I don't think Democrats should be allowed to consider as "torture" anything similar to what Bill Clinton did with White House interns.

I now return to my adventures in capitalism.

I don't have the proof in front of me right now, but what are the chances that 70% of Americans don't understand that Gitmo has more than terrorists detained?

Hopefully, Americans understand the question. They certainly didn't understand the questions in the Patriot Act poll earlier last year. Many said they supported the Act, but most of them couldn't identify any of the Act itself!
