MSN in a FUNK! - 58% of Americans Agree: Keep Gitmo Open!

Poll shows Americans 'generally in a funk'

New Gallup Poll Numbers - not as bad as MSM would have you believe. Of particular:

"Fifty-eight percent say the United States should continue to operate the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and 52% approve of the way the United States is treating prisoners there. So much for "calls to close Gitmo!!"

USA Today writers Richard Benedetto and Judy Keen, can't let that good news stand by itself....they continue (comments mine):

"Critics (yeah - usually cast of malcontents) have increasingly called for its closure; former president Bill Clinton (Ok, here we go...) told the Financial Times of London that the prison should be shut down or cleaned up."

Yeah, and Bill should be IN it! But that's another story.

Continuing...

"At a news conference with European Union leaders Monday, Bush said the United States has been handling Guantanamo prisoners humanely, even though many of them are "dangerous people." He invited American and foreign news reporters to visit the facility.

"I have an obligation, as do all of us who are holding office, to protect our people," Bush said. "And I believe we're meeting that obligation in a humane way."

Bush also showed no sign of backing down from his policies on Iraq, pledging to fight on against the "cold-blooded killers," he said are murdering innocent civilians and trying to drive the United States out of Iraq. "We're making progress toward the goal, which is ... a political process moving forward in Iraq and ... the Iraqis capable of defending themselves," he said. "We will complete this mission for the sake of world peace."

Bush's job approval rating is at 47%. It's been at 50% or lower for the past three months.

Democratic strategist Jim Duffy (WHO GIVES A DINK WHAT HE THINKS) says much of the public unease with Bush and his policies stems from Iraq."

MSM - "We write and decide what you NEED to know!"

sheeesh!

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
