    Care to back this statement up or is this just another of your thoughts into facts statements?

    But fully 77 percent of liberal Democrats endorse the use of drones, meaning that Obama is unlikely to suffer any political consequences as a result of his policy in this election year.

    There are many aspects to Rand Paul that i do not agree with....just as with Obama. I thought what Rand did yesterday was great. I never liked his support of Romney...and some other issues.

    Obama I hold to the exact same standard. I do not like the right blindly attacking him for things he has no control over, but I do attack him for signing legislation like the provisions in NDAA, an extension on the Patriot Act, and keeping Gitmo open despite his promise to close it.

    So you find an equivalence between the Illinois state senator who always voted "Present" and the United States Senator who stood up for thirteen hours to demand clarification for an idea he opposed?

    Eh for some reason, I see you in the same camp of people who would criticize Obama if he did the same thing and demand that he stop campaigning.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    Yes, I hate both of those situations equally.

    Obama's position was stupid because we all know he loves abortion as he regularly pals around with planned parenthood people

    Rand Paul's filibuster is stupid because he hijacked the senate for 13 hours while meaningful things could have been done, while he was going off about random nonsense and most of it if not all of it was!

    That's just silly, you didn't even listen. Very, very weak.

    I just heard this snippet from Jay Carney on the radio...

    "It has come to my attention that you have now asked an additional question: Does the president have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil? The answer to that question is no."
    Makes me fell a little better but the phrase "not engaged in combat"? Hmm... seems like "combat" can be massaged to include a lot of things beyond what most people immediately think of when they hear the word "combat".

    I don't go that route with the president because it is well within his rights to take the issue on the road if he desires. Matter of fact, I admire Obama on his up front nature a lot. I think he is generally doing what he thinks is right. I have issues with certain pieces of legislation. I thought what Governor Brewer did was disrespectful.


    I don't call our president "Hussein"...I don't tout the right wing conservative slogans. I believe Obama was born in Hawaii and is a real American. I hate when people bring up the birther nonsense.

    I go after policies he has made...not him as a man or personally because I think he is a good person at heart.

    I think I'm pretty accurate on that one. Can you add up all the times when Rand Paul made valid points? If you can, include the hour count. how much of those 13 hours weren't a complete waste of time, I could analyze it.
