"If Obama wants to discuss civil liberties, he should be held accountable for the obliteration of the First, Fourth, and Fifth amendments occurring under his watch, if not under his direction," writes Jesselyn Radack, National Security & Human Rights Director for the Government Accountability Project. If Radack were moderating, Obama would have to answer for his secret kill list, expanded surveillance, his assassination of American citizens, secret laws created by the PATRIOT Act, and his war on both whistleblowers and journalists.
He should also be asked to answer for at least a few of the following:
Why does Obama's Justice Department continue to raid medical marijuana dispensaries, and to ignore the will of voters in states where medical marijuana is legal?
Why has he condemned police brutality during the Arab Spring and the Iranian uprising, but failed to condemn a single act of police brutatlity in the United States, particularly the murder of Kelly Thomas and the murder-by-torture of Nick Christie?
Why does he allow the Department of Defense to distribute military grade weapons and equipment to local police departments?
Why has he done nothing to reunite the roughly 5,100 children ripped from their deported parents and placed in American foster care?
Why has he done nothing to curtail the frequent humiliations and abuses Americans are subjected to by the Transportation Security Administration?
Why has he allowed his Justice Department to defend the right of DEA agents to shackle young children at gunpoint?
Why did he give himself--and by extension, future presidents--the leeway necessary to indefinitely detain Americans?
When he reduced the sentencing disparity between cocaine and crack, why did he reduce it from 100-to-1 to 18-to-1, and not just 1-to-1?
Why has he commuted only one federal drug sentence in nearly four years?
Why has he permitted his FDA to conduct armed raids on Amish farms that sell raw milk?
Why did his party eliminate nearly all mentions of civil liberties from its 2012 platform, and in the process, soften the party's long-stated opposition to torture?
Why has privileged the regulatory powers of the EPA over the due process rights of American citizens?

But perhaps national polls tell the right story of the race instead — meaning that the state polls systematically overrate Mr. Obama’s standing?

It’s certainly possible.(It keeps me up late at night.) If the polls in states like Ohio and Wisconsin are wrong, then FiveThirtyEight — and all of our competitors that build projections based on state polls — will not have a happy Nov. 6.

With that said, our decision to cast our lot mostly with the state polls is not arbitrary. In recent years, they’ve been a slightly more unbiased indicator of how the election will play out.

And really, what BBQ was that? When you bring up Ayers, we know you are one dumb sh*t.
Really you think Bill Ayers and his lovely wife Bernadine Dorn don't matter? You don't know Chicago communism very well do you? You must know that they are considered royalty in the circle of communists in Chicago. Bill Ayers wrote O'bama's book. Dreams. He then continued on and said the second one was written by a political hack. You must be the dumb crap.

There were two short battles (45 min) occurring five/six hours apart with much happening in between, the ambassador being taken to the hospital by Libyans, the eight man rescue team including Doherty arriving from Tripoli and more.
There are several, so far, unnamed Americans who where present for the entire goings on and who will eventually fill in the blanks.
You're a fkn moron and a liar.
draft-dodging Obamabot thinks that dragging the ambassador's body through the streets like Qaddafi is "taking him to the hospital"....

Since O'bama got rid of NASA there is no need for rocket scientists. One thing for sure, my friends, whom you call hillbillies, aren't out looting and taking thing that don't belong to them during a crisis.

Obama released his jobs growth to attack the anemic economy today. Reading from his portable teleprompter he said "hurricanes create jobs, what we need is more hurricanes so we can put people back to work". At least he finally has a plan, four years too late no less.
