Preventive Detention?

If George W. Bush had proposed this, the moonbatosphere would be in flames. Granted, it's early, but I haven't seen any posts on this at the leftwing blogs I read. Of course, pointing out facts is considered whining by some people, but I'm willing to risk that scorn.

President Obama is proposing "preventive detention" for terrorists considered dangerous to Americans, but for whom trials can't be held. Perhaps Obama read the memo about one in seven detainees heading back to kill Americans. Couple this with the backtracking on closing Guantanamo, and you have to ask yourself, how is President Obama's policy on terror any different from President Bush's? And is this why Americans think Obama is moving us in the right direction?
