Actually that's the basic definition of drone, aka UAV...no pilot. A missile is also a type of UAV but a drone is remotely controlled, usually by a crew in front of computer monitors.

The 2012 election was a substantial victory not only for President Obama but also for liberalism. Obama built his campaign on abortion rights and higher taxes for the wealthy. He was rewarded by an electorate that was younger, more pro-choice and more racially diverse than in 2008. The Obama coalition is not a fluke; it is a force.

Some conservatives have reacted in the tradition of Cicero:“Oh, the times! Oh, the customs!”Rush Limbaugh concluded,“We’ve lost the country,” which he described as a “country of children.”“There is no hope,” Ann Coulter said. And Bill O’Reilly:“It’s not a traditional America anymore.”

As a matter of strategy, it is generally not a good idea to express disdain for an electorate one hopes to eventually influence.

Without 'non-traditional' America the GOP might as well shut it down; or they can just get used to what happened on Tuesday.

No the new ones are programed on the ground and have no outside control once launched. It flies it's mission, whatever it may be, then returns. No outside control.

After Tuesday's election, if Republicans are smart, they will realize that the culture war just isn't working out for them any longer. Republicans leaned as heavily as ever on social issues and paid the price at the polls. After decades of rewarding Republicans with votes for their scare-mongering over abortion and homosexuality, voters finally turned to social conservatives and said, "Enough." [...]

Republicans used to rely on the culture wars to win elections, but this year shows they can't anymore. Voters, female voters especially, are sick of attacks on gay rights and reproductive rights. Republicans would do well to heed the lessons of this election, and give up on fighting the culture war.

Why should we taxpayers have to shell out one red cent for a morsel of Mooching Marion Robinson's food, shelter, clothing, travel or personal expenses such as manicures, hair and makeup let alone entertainment? If that lying racist wants to live in our house, she will pay every cent of her upkeep! She butted in on that whole campaign the last time just like that ass son of hers did! Michelle Obama had it all planned.
The worse part of it is that this bitch is a racist and hates America. She feels "owed" and taught Michelle and Craig that they are "entitled." Where do you think they got if from if it didn't start right there in that Robinson home wher Michelle and her brother slept together. You know, the HOUSE that Michelle made everyone think was a ghetto apt. to gain the sympathy vote!
Don't you think she and Michelle along with those mouthy kids are inserting their opinions on everything and telling the Boy what to do?
She is not elected to anything. I bet those kids can't stand her and don't want her around. They have proven they don't need a babysitter by allowing Malia Obama at age 13 to go to Oaxaca and they are now BEING SUED over that trip!!!!
Then they send the other brat off to the most expensive summer camp they can find. OMG what moochers!
Marion Robinson needs to get out now and go back to Chicago and if she doesn't want to do that, send her packing to Libya with Hillary and Chelsea Clinton. Fair is fair. She can call her son-in-law for any assistance she might need upon her arrival.
I hope that there is a cure for diarrhea of the mouth because you really need it.

In the final hours of the campaign, Romney either developed never-before-seen acting skills or truly believed he was on the glide path to victory; inside the Fox News bubble, no other outcome seemed possible.

But far more important than any of this, as we look to the future, is that since Romney’s loss, we’ve continued to hear conservatives who do know they are on camera or writing for publications carry right on cementing the impression that they think Obama won only because he was the choice of Moocher Nation: Not only had they failed to “take back America” from the guy Newt Gingrich delighted in calling “the food-stamp president,” but non-white America, they inferred, is not really America at all.

All of which explains how, in a tepid economy, Romney managed to lose the election more than Obama won it. And yet, they’re still at it, with Ole Miss students contributing some standout visuals to the narrative that the GOP is not minority-friendly.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/decisi...

It remains a mystery why places that receive the most per person in federal spending, particularly on welfare programs, vote in presidential elections for the party that wants to cut those programs.

No.

And it's why the Republicans lost.

You miserable neanderthals will be in a constant state of apoplexy as immigration reform is addreesed and passed, taxes are raised on Richie Rich, Rush makes nice with Sandra Fluke, The Affordable Care Act gets implemented etc.

Progressives, women hispanics, gays , math, science, reality, history all WON and cleaned your ignorant, lying, hysterical, racist trailer trash clocks.

How the GOP Got Stuck in the Past

The finger-pointing misses a bigger truth: Republicans have become estranged from modern America. Why fixating on the old glory days is bogging down the party’s future.

The black population in the south had moved north and to the west - it was called The Great Migration - 6 million African Americans moved out of the rural South to the Northeast, Midwest and West by the late 1960s.
Look it up if you don't believe me.
The Republicans had nothing to do with the southern Democrats in the south before the 1960s.
The southern bloc of Democrats, however, filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
You're such a fool, dumb carol, probably always have been and, most definitely, always will be. I am not. "

The civil rights movement, once a controversial left-wing fringe, has grown deeply embedded into the fabric of our national story. This is a salutary development, but a problematic one for conservatives, who are the direct political descendants of (and, in the case of some of the older members of the movement, the exact same people as) the strident opponents of the civil rights movement. It has thus become necessary for conservatives to craft an alternative story, one that absolves their own ideology of any guilt. The right has dutifully set itself to its task, circulating its convoluted version of history, honing it to the point where it can be repeated by any defensive College Republican in his dorm room. Kevin Williamson’s cover story in National Review is the latest version of what is rapidly congealing into conservatism’s revisionist dogma.

The mainstream, and correct, history of the politics of civil rights is as follows. Southern white supremacy operated out of the Democratic Party beginning in the nineteenth century, but the party began attracting northern liberals, including African-Americans, into an ideologically cumbersome coalition. Over time the liberals prevailed, forcing the Democratic Party to support civil rights, and driving conservative (and especially southern) whites out, where they realigned with the Republican Party." Blow it out you're tired, lyin' ass as long as you choose, but I ain't buyin'.
