    ..you would have a point if American politicians actually acted according to polls.

    90% of Americans what some type of gun control laws, but our American politicians could give a shit.

    So if you are going to tell me Obama refuses to close Gitmo because of what polls say, then you are presenting a very flawed argument.

    To any Republican reading this, I request you write a diary about why Republicans are such assholes. I promise to tip & recommend such a diary.

      industry's lobbying effort...yes, politicians act according to polls.

      Congress stood very firmly in Obama's way on this.

      In a rare, bipartisan defeat for President Barack Obama, the Senate voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to keep the prison at Guantanamo Bay open for the foreseeable future and forbid the transfer of any detainees to facilities in the United States.
