Obama has accelerated the use of drones. That's a fact.

Aaron David Miller, a long-term Middle East policy adviser to both Republican and Democratic administrations, delivered a damning verdict in a recent issue of Foreign Policy magazine. He wrote bluntly: "Barack Obama has become George W Bush on steroids."

The Obama Team Cheerleaders will tell you it's a secret.

Malians welcome French intervention
In Bamako, Mali's windswept capital, people are talking of nothing else but the French intervention in the North of their country.
The operation by French forces to stop a rebel advance towards the capital has won their hearts. Before the French intervened residents of Bamako were living in fear of the rebels overrunning their country's weak army and reaching the capital in a short time.
"I salute the French for coming to our aid," Mariam Coulibally, said balancing a heavy basket of grocery on her head. "God knows where we would have been if they had not arrived in time," she added.

So, do you approve of the current U.S. intervention in Mali, interfering in a civil war?

Islamist forces based in northern Mali vowed Monday to avenge France’s fierce military offensive against them on French soil.

“France has attacked Islam. We will strike at the heart of France,” said a leader of the Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa (MUJAO), an offshoot of Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM).

Asked where they would strike, Abou Dardar told AFP by telephone:“Everywhere. In Bamako, in Africa and in Europe.”

<quoted text>You dumbass along with your Drill Baby Drill crowd kept saying if America could just drill it's own oil, gas prices would go down and we could get off Middle East oil. America is producing more oil than anytime since 2003. America's oil Imports are at the lowest levels in 20 years. BUT,,,,,,,, America is EXPORTING oil at a record pace. You all got suckered !!!!!!!!!! hahahahaha!!!!!!!!!! The oil was never about America. It was about oil company profit and selling it to China. The pipeline is the same. Suckers!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry, I DISAGREE with merely your opinion. Keystone isn't actually just about oil prices here-it's about opening more trade OUT from America too.

And oil companies don't actually make all that much profit on the dollar, TWO to FOUR cents average.

What drains people at the gaspumps-

TAXES.

So save your clueless bobblehead propoganda-because not everyone are idiots.

There's no secret. No one loves the idea of drones, however, they have been pretty effective. Would Mitt Romney or any future republican president abolish the use of drones? Or is it that you just have another excuse to whine about the President?

If the Constitution is so easy to understand, why were you so clueless about the function of Executive Orders??
First you said they were unConstitutional.
Then you walked it back and said they were only applicable to the Executive Branch.
Then I showed you some of Bush's 290 Executive Orders, and you folded your tent and ran away. LOL
You're not just stupid, you're a coward to boot!!
BTW, the only ones complaining about the SC is a handful of nitwits like you who throw hissy fits when things don't go your way.
Deal with it,, loser.

You seem to think Social Security and Medicare are sustainable. Republicans want to reform both so they will still be viable programs for those 50 and under down the road.
This adminstration wants the easily fooled to believe the status quo is perfectly acceptable. You, for instance.
Liberals are the guilty ones when it comes to changing the "American Way of Life". They want Obama to fundamentally change it until it's totally unrecognizable.
Open your eyes.
The Repubs in Congress voted 2 years ago under the Paul Ryan Plan to get rid of Medicare and make it a private system. Medicare would have no problems if it were the universal health care plan for every American based on income. But no way would Repubs ever let that happen when millions can be paid to insurance CEOs for being a middleman.
You Repubs are hypocrites. You bitch about the government ObamaCare plan but turn 65 you all sign up for government ran health care. A lot of VETS bitch about ObamaCare but walk into a VA when they need health care. Why don't you all stand up against this Socialism you hate and pay for your own health needs??????????

First of all, who is "they", the Senate? the House? In our democratic government this isn't even a remote possibility. You just provided an example that exposes the absurdity of the slippery slope argument. Even in the ridiculous hypothetical situation you described, I have confidence that the American people would impeach anyone entertaining your fantasy world theory.
