    massachusetts, virginia, new jersey---25 to 30 point swings towards red in a year

    wall street reg reform---loser

    the bank tax, the debt commission, the spending freeze...

    even his jobs bill, the STIMULUS he can't call a STIMULUS---hassled harry stripped it down to 15 cents

    trade with china---loser

    Yeah, I hate all of those D's.
    Very good. that was funny.

    Since you brought it up. What is this dumb thing rightees have about Obama and the teleprompter? All politicians giving long speeches use them. I mean seriously. You just sound dumb arguing this point. Need I bring up youtube vids of your guys with their teleprompters? How about a rightee making fun of Obama using a teleprompter while he himself is using one? Or how about one of the dumbest on the right using notes she wrote on her hand? Now THAT is something to make fun of.

    I mean WTF?
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    Have you ever heard him when he is winging it? He say "uhhhhh"... "ummmmmmm".... "errrrrr" more than he says other words combined. He can't put one coherent statement together to save his life, he loses track of what the question was or the point he was trying to make.

    That's what the deal is about teleprompters for the "greatest orator of our times".

    BTW. Did you listen to Sara’s speech when she had 3 or 4 notes on her hand?…. Truly inspired….. Can’t say that about Dumbo.

    It does, but that doesn't mean I have to agree with them. My position is consistent with domestic and international law.

    The US Constitution does not address the rights of foreign combatants, but it does incorporate international treaties (Article VI), which means the Geneva Conventions are given the force of law. Since KSM actively defied the Geneva Conventions, he is not entitled to their protection or consideration.

    International law, in this instance, acts like an addendum to the Constitution. It defines terms and outlines government protocol in matters outside the scope of its original operation.

    I don't address sideways questions that someone asks because they know their argument is a loser. What are you gonna do next, ask me what I would do if a captured terrorist might have knowledge about a nuclear bomb?
    Sure. What would you do? It's just a question.

    Another distraction.
    For the far left, the Constitution usually is...

    The Geneva Conventions cover people even if they don't follow it themselves.

    I mean, seriously. We've done it before, in fact we've done it for 99% of terrorists.
    Proof of this?

    So, now if Obama turns tail and changes his mind what will you rightees then have to complain about?
    You're the one who is complaining. Everyone except you has accepted the fact that a civilian trial for KSM is a dumb idea.

    No, I don't think a civilian trial is a dumb idea. Hell, I don't even consider military tribunals to be constitutional.

    How is a military tribunal unconstitutional?
