So yes this was an empty victory which just confirms the same old rules are in place. this had nothing to do with drone strikes at all. it had everything to do with delaying another Obama nomination and trying to pull a victory out of it when they knew he would be confirmed anyway. You can have all the opinions you want, but it doesn't change the reality we have always existed under the threat of the military being used against us. So does everyone in the world for that matter. Pretending this is specific to obama is pure partisan opinion. you are welcome to your opinion, just not to have it unopposed.
