Barack Obama, our next President

Republican....
The release of a Justice Department white paper outlining the administration’s legal case for the targeted killing of American citizens who are in cahoots with al-Qaeda has raised protest from the left, which has leeway to criticize the president now that he has been safely reelected, and unfortunately from some on the right, who find it convenient to locate their inner civil-liberty scolds when the White House is occupied by a Democrat. But there is in fact little novel in the white paper or the principles on which it relies. Due process is not generally required in battlefield situations, and an American citizen engaged in hostilities against the United States, on foreign soil and in concert with a terrorist force, is surely not entitled to counsel and a hearing before being dispatched. If he were, it would paralyze our ability to fight war.

Your response is pure BS and so is your source. Unfortunately in your mind we still have due process. In your mind it is okay for an individual to claim someone is a subversive and off him. You to would be screaming out loud if a republican offered this option, rightfully so.

I freakin love Obama he is the man. I mean the dude inherited a messed up economy that G.Bush messed up and he's managing it better than any republican could ever do. Republicans aren't interested in even running the government all they wanna do is try and stonewall Obama and make up lies. What i love now is that minority's have an even stronger political voice that can even offset the white vote. Republicans will now have to start to think about changing their ideology if they want to get the minority vote. Go team OBAMA!
There will be no future USA; the dregs of society, such as you, continue to reproduce at a faster rate.

Whatever happened to the original Carol? www.rcacf.com
As usual, I have no idea what you're talking or what your point is.

But I'll ask again anyway.

You would be okay if a Republican president had the authority to drop drones on "terrorists" on our own soil?

Try and focus on the question. Tay?

THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT YOU THEY JUST KEEP YOU CLOSER THAN THEIR REAL FRIENDS
And they voted to raise their own taxes because they knew it was for the good of the country.

Republicans rich in Congress want to raise taxes on the poor & cut their programs.

Her shoulders. BTW this is the third trial judge assigned to the case, the second states attorney's office and the city has just hired it's third police chief since the teen was shot and killed just one year ago. The defendant is on his third attorney and his wife has been charged with perjury. And the case is just now beginning to take shape.

The only liberal in sight is the defense attorney O'Mara.

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.
I wonder if Bob Woodward has been having higher than normal "mosquito" problems.

Or maybe you were talking about an already wealthy man marrying a wealthy wife? Then that would m]be Mitt Romney.

If you think about it, it really is pretty sick.
You're still dumb carol, but you working up to moran status.(BTW, tours is plural = they're) " The reason for the cancellations, an official with the Secret Service told NBC News, is because the Uniformed Division Officers normally tasked with securing the tours will be reassigned to other security posts at the White House. The move will reduce overtime costs and may reduce the number of furloughs the Secret Service could potentially face, according to the official.

Generally speaking, this is hardly scandalous. The news will no doubt disappoint some tourists, and there's arguably a symbolic significance, but when evaluating the sequester's effects, this seems fairly minor. Indeed, if scrapping tours helps prevent Secret Service furloughs, it's a no-brainer."
