    as the first article makes clear, a majority support the policy

    You answered with lip service. Why didn't you start this thread, expressing outrage and calling for Obama's prosecution for violating international law, like I'm sure you did when Bush was doing it?

    If you want to simply ignore that, then there is little point in further wasting time trying to discuss the subject

    In the context of being forgiving, knowing what transpired. Polls are limited to begin with. A yes or no vote is always attached to some rationale.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    It's been discussed before, and I've spoke against it before. Not new here at all.

    Btw, how many threads do I start on anything?

    I'm not ignoring it at all. I just don't accept that liberals support rendition. I am highly doubtful. Nor do I think either is equivalent to rendition.

    Like I said, I am distrusted by the drone strike support.

    We never see you knashing the teeth like I'm sure you did when Bush was doing the same thing. Hypocritical much?

    Libbos support anything that Obama does; or at least tolerate it. They sure as hell don't hold Obama to the same standard they held Bush to.

    He hasn't exactly done what bush did. He didn't invade and occupy two countries,one on a pretext. He has not tried to rename torture. He is leaving both Iraq and Afghanistan. So there are real differences.

    We're talking about renditions. Wanna stick to the subject?
