More VIDEO: Blunt Ribs Obama on Gitmo, Then Tips Hat to History

In the above clip, Congressman Roy Blunt explains his concerns with President Obama's decision to close Guantanamo Bay.

"During the campaign it was very easy to say, we're going to close Guantanamo Bay, Day 1, it's going to be the first thing we do, with every indication that it would be closed. And now we see, it's much more complicated than that," said Congressman Blunt. "I'm perfectly happy with them being in Guantanamo," he added, referring to the prisoners.

In the second clip, Blunt speaks about what it was like to be on the stage with President Obama during his Inauguration.

Notes that the D.C. crowd was "not nearly as big as originally people thought," but adds, "certainly that moment crossed a huge barrier in our society that was really important to cross."

KY3's Chad Plein reported on Blunt's opposition to delaying the DTV transition. You can watch his report HERE.
