Obama To Turn Gitmo Into Theme Park


WASHINGTON (CAP) - Despite harsh criticism over his announcement to close the US military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba within a year, President Obama has remain undeterred and is now expanding upon those plans with a move he hopes will quell any Republican concerns. The White House says he plans to turn Gitmo into an amusement park.

"The president believes that there's no more important job that he has than to provide the American people an affordable vacation destination," said White House press secretary Robert Gibbs. "And when this park is done, all of middle class America will be able to walk right down the middle of Main Street, Guantanamo Bay."

The newly-coined Gitmoworld will feature dozens of rides and games for both children and adults, as well as the Bay At Guantanamo, a world-class hotel suite and 20,000 square-foot convention center. Obama administration officials say the president believes the best way to combat terrorism is to "put the capitalism smack-down" on their most hated place of pain and suffering.

"Let this be a message to terrorists and those who would support terrorism," President Obama said as he made the formal announcement. "We will ridicule you. We will deride your cause. We will do what Americans do best - make a buck off your despair."

Tom Daschle, who President Obama wants as his secretary of Health and Human Services, apparently did not pay $128,000 in taxes that he owes to the government. Do you realize Obama hasn't had a Cabinet member with an embarrassing tax problem like this since . . . the last guy they appointed?
