Sen. Rand Paul has taken to the floor of the U.S. Senate and is vowing to stay there “at length” in order to filibuster John O. Brennan, President Obama’s nominee to be the next CIA director.

The freshman Kentucky Republican has said he will hold up the nomination until he gets more information about the U.S. drone execution program, which has become a major sore point for many lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

“I will speak today until the president responds and says,‘No, we won’t kill Americans in cafes. No, we won’t kill you at home at night,’” Mr. Paul said.

Just hours earlier, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. testified to a Senate committee that he believed it would be illegal for the government to kill an American who did not pose an imminent threat to security.

But he could not rule out the use of drones on American soil altogether, saying only that he doubted it would happen because it’s easier to capture people here.

The U.S. extrajudicial execution program has come under increasing scrutiny this year after some of the administration’s legal justification for the executions — most often carried out by drone strikes on targets overseas — leaked to the press.

Members of both parties on Capitol Hill have raised concerns about the program, which started under President George W. Bush and which Mr. Obama has greatly expanded.

Mr. Holder told the Senate Judiciary Committee that Mr. Obama will deliver a speech in the near future laying out the issues at stake and asking for a public debate on the underlying principles.

Mr. Holder also said, though, that he is not sure Congress could ban the president from using drones to kill Americans on U.S. soil, saying that would likely run afoul of the Constitution’s grant of powers to the president in Article II.

Anyone dying from the sequestor Obamageddon yet?

Did we lose those 170,000,000 jobs yet Pewlosi & Waters talked about that was actually 170,000 jobs?

When out in the car today, the bridges weren't crumbling and I didn't see any mass riots.

Well, first of all, can you go back any further in finding something Boehner did that everyone used to do at one time?
Yes, he admitted to passing out a half dozen checks on behalf of the tobacco lobbyists and regretted having done it on the floor but also said it was something they were trying to stop and something he would never do again.
But the facts about tobacco being a major export in the early beginnings of our country wasn't really meant to be funny.
Wasn't sure if you were more upset about the checks or the tobacco.

<quoted text>Liberal icon Franklin D. Roosevelt was a bigoted racist. FDR Proof:
A pretty face is nothing if you have an ugly heart. The DNA of the democratic party is inbred with hate, ignorance and racism. Mass killings by democrats in schools and such, or Chicago ghetto style killings from your "Culture of Violence" are not by angry old white men conservatives clinging to their guns and religion.
The inner city ghettos and projects of modern America and Detroit's urban preserves are the breeding ground big & more government 'Blue Magnets' of hate-filled liberalism, racism, ignorance, poverty, abortion, and America's killing fields of blacks.
Today I'm no longer sad when I see the dereliction among you; instead I marvel your urban preserves, projects, ghettos the face of failure, your own disuse and neglect, and try to understand, but respectably decline to act or be like one of you..
Your fear of the very thing that fascinates you disqualifies your ability to understand. You couldn't answer the question you've been asking for the past month. I don't know to school you or put you over my knee. You'll always lose in the battle of wits. You refuse to do your homework. You'd rather someone else do it for you. Hence you continually posting the same question & nonsense over & over again! Do you here anybody asking for your sympathy?

You're the dumbass; his attorney knows damn well that it isn't a stand your ground case and that he'd lose. He's taking his chances and going to trial for 2nd degree murder.

As yes, Rand Paul; will whine for an hour and then they'll vote him in. Yawn. More waste of time; that's what the Republicans are good for, wasting time and money.

1. A stupid or silly person; a dolt.
2. A person whose mental acumen is well below par.
3. A person of moderate to severe mental retardation having a mental age of from three to seven years and generally being capable of some degree of communication and performance of simple tasks under supervision.

That's Democrats for you - screw the people, we just want our way. No surprise here.
It's the "confuse, divide and conquer" strategy.

Let's hope enough people don't want to be conquered.
