So, the news came today that the United States will be closing the shameful Guantanamo Bay detention facility, as well as all of the CIA's secret torture-shacks around the globe. And, surprise! Cowboy Senator John Cornyn has some brilliantly Texan things to say about it.
Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, told Politico that he's written a letter to Obama "telling him, 'Don't move these dangerous terrorists to Texas - we don't want them there.'"
"I think governing is a lot harder than campaigning," Cornyn said. "I think he needs to be very cautious about precipitous action that could well endanger American citizens."
Yes, Sen. Cornyn--who by the way gets some of his campaign money from your mayor and members of his family--governing is harder than campaigning. Governing means being able to keep your campaign promises. It means being able to do the right thing despite the possibility of being called a "traitor" or a "friend of terrorists" by the less literate half of the country.
