House Continuing Resolution Adds Language to Block Funds to Try Gitmo Detainees in US Courts

It really is a civil war, isn't it?

We're operating without a federal budget, instead passing these "continuing resolutions", this one intended to keep the government funded next year. Late Wesdnesday the Appropriations Committee inserted language which prevents any funding for civilian trials for the Gitmo detainees, effectively preventing Obama from closing it down.

A few Reps seemed surprised.

But many other Democrats, including Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.), a member of the defense appropriations subcommittee, said they didn’t even know the provision was included.

Moran’s anger with the president boiled over in a short interview Thursday with The Hill about the provision and the tax debate held shortly after the Democratic caucus voted to reject Obama’s tax-cut deal.

“This is a lack of leadership on the part of Obama,” fumed Moran (D-Va.) “I don’t know where the f*** Obama is on this or anything else. They’re AWOL.”

It's almost as if getting your ass kicked in the mid-terms kinda weakens your political power or something. I don't know, I don't do this for a living.

Happy FiAF morons. Pass the popcorn.

ALSO: Harry Reid's version of the tax cut bill loads it up with ethanol subsidies, credits for alternative energy bullshit, mass transit, land use (conservation), and a "special" tax deduction for elementary and secondary school union members teachers.

In contract negotiation, this is known as "begging". It's a lot like how I try to get laid.
