Tom Cotton leads the way on Twitter opposing President Obama's plan to close the prison facility there.
Yesterday, I introduced a bill w/ @KellyAyotte @SenatorBurr @SenRubioPress to stop POTUS from turning over #Gitmo naval base to #Cuba.

Wait, did Rubio actually show up to work to co-sponsor that, Tom? Nevermind.
Get ready for Republican chorus to tell you that closing #Guantanamo Bay is bad because Benghazi, Jesus and Constitution. #Gitmo

Yep, noted always-wrong John Bolton as well as Speaker Ryan and a bunch of Republican lawmakers lined up to oppose the plan as well.
Other Twitter responses were not written by Republicans whose credibility has been shattered by their traitorous past actions in writing poisonous letters to Iranian leadership. Or involved in selling Iran weapons to fund the Contras, you know.
Its a good thing Jeb Bush dropped out or else he would have had to denounce his own brother for wanting to close #Gitmo in the 1st place

GOP wants to keep #GITMO open. When War Criminals Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Rice are incarcerated there, I might agree.

Which is greater -- the number of actual terrorists left at #Gitmo or the number of people committing treason on Capitol Hill?

Terrorist-coddling @POTUS announces plan to move inmates from #Gitmo to famously soft, comfortable American criminal justice system.

GOP needs to #Gitmo to stay open as a recruitment tool to draw in new bed wetting, gun clinging, scaredy cat voters to their dying party.

My favorite part of the #Gitmo argument is when we act like the prisoners are Supervillains who can't be housed in conventional prisons.
