Puzzling Questions

Louisiana Senator "Diaper Dave" Vitter:

We need the ability to deal with these folks adequately. To me, that has to include the ability to detain some — without trial — to continue proper interrogation. […] I’d like to have Gitmo stay open. But certainly, we need detention facilities where we can detain dangerous terrorists without trial, continue to interrogate them.

Question: If you truly think Barack Obama is a terrible President with terrible judgment, why would you want to give him the power to lock people up without trial, purely on his say-so that they're terrorists?

HT to Think Progress.
