There was much made of the Obama swearing-in flub, in which the new president repeated the words given to him by the Chief Justice. But that was in the script. That what was supposed to happen: repeat after me: I, Barack Hussein Obama I, Barack Hussein Obama.
What was supposed to happen after that was that this bright, articulate, handsome man would find his own words.
So it was a little strange today, to hear the newly minted President of the United States in his first official act, repeat the words of his White House counsel. ...
OBAMA: In order to effect the appropriate disposition of individuals currently detained by the Department of Defense at Guantanamo, uh, and promptly to close the detention facility at Guantanamo consistent with the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States and interests of justice, I hereby order. And we then we will then, uh, provide the process whereby Guantanamo will be closed no later than, uh, one year from now.
At this point, Obama addressed Greg Craig:
OBAMA: We will be... Uhhh.... Ummm.... Is there a separate executive order, Greg, with respect to how we're going to dispose of the detainees? Is that it, eh, uh, what we're doing?
CRAIG: We'll set up a process!
OBAMA: We will be, uh, setting up a process whereby this is going to be taking place.
CRAIG: That's right. And detainee policy going forward.
OBAMA: And detainee policy going forward so that we don't find ourselves in these kinds of situations, uh, in the future.
CRAIG: And there is clear guidance for the military as well.
OBAMA: And that we are providing clear guidance to our military in terms of having to do with it.
Greg Craig is feeding Obama his lines.

Well!! Surprise, Surprise!! Who’da thunk!!!
What a pathetic performance! That EO should be rescinded immediately until the boys can think this thing through like adults.
Repeating another’s words is not a good sign of independent thinking. Are executive orders the usual method of how a CiC addresses military matters?
Raoul or Fidel?
Exactly. The lightweight socialist conman cannot string coherent sentences together without a teleprompter. His handlers have their work cut out for them to keep him out of uncontrolled exchanges.
Was just watching a Jeff Dunham comedy show on TV tonight and realized that his Nascar-lovin’ white trash dummy was a close relative of Mortimer Snerd. Your photo proves that!
Had the same thought - Edgar Bergen and Charlie McObama.....
