It ain’t easy being Barack Obama. What with Congress and all …

Here’s what Earnest said:

“His goal is to have [Gitmo] closed on his watch, as he promised. And that’s been our goal since, I think, the president’s second full day in office. It continues to be our goal today. The truth is, this is a goal we would’ve accomplished some time ago had Congress not gotten in the way.”

You see? The president could’ve gotten so much more peacemaking done so much sooner, if only that damn legislative branch hadn’t interfered!

What a bummer.



Obama wants Congress to ‘get out of the way’ on Gitmo closure (and he WON’T like Sen. Tim Scott’s reply)
