McCain, Graham rebuke Sen. Paul for filibuster over drones
The senator "should know better," Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said, arguing that some of the concerns raised about drone missile attacks on Americans -- like Paul's suggestion that the U.S. could have killed Jane Fonda when she went to North Vietnam -- were "ridiculous."
"To my Republican colleagues, I don't remember any of you coming down here suggesting that President Bush was going to kill anybody with a drone," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said in remarks on the Senate floor.
Graham displayed a sign that showed the number of Americans killed in the U.S. by Al Qaeda -- 2,958 -- versus the number killed by drones, which is zero.

McCain and Graham have become stereotypes for Republican Quislings.

House Speaker John Boehner on Thursday applauded President Obama's outreach to Republicans, which included dinner with a group of Republican Senators Wednesday night and an upcoming visit with Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), calling it a "hopeful sign" during a press conference Thursday.

He said he expected that sequestration and the president's upcoming trip to the Middle East would probably be discussed when Obama visits with House Republicans, likely to take place sometime next week.

Boehner said he did not feel like Obama is "going around me" by meeting with other Republicans.

You're too stupid to understand insults, That's what allows you to come here and behave as a complete airhead!!

And you're too ignorant to know that the Model T Ford was followed by the Model A Ford.

Proof positive of your overwhelming ignorance!!

""In 1908, Ford offered an improved car that became the Model T. Then, in 1928, Ford started the alphabet again with the Model A to symbolize that the new Model A had no connection to the Model T."

So, The Model T begat the Model A.

And I'm still laughing at your stupidity!!

Or are you still stupidly insisting that Ford built no cars after 1928, the lie that Leo trapped you in last evening??

We all know you're more than dumb enough to do so!!

Give it up, Dood. You're dumber than a stump and everyone sees it but you!!

I find it very interesting that certain people didn't bellyache about the government spending money when George W. Bush was president. But now that we have made history by electing our first black president, they are howling everyday about him spending money trying to undo what Bush did.
Are you talking about John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Pat Toomey,Eric Cantor, etc.

They not only said nothing but voted for it.

Rand Paul's Filibuster Belittled By John McCain As 'Simply False'

""WASHINGTON -- One of the Senate's leading hawks, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), took to the Senate floor Thursday to fire back at Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), saying the Kentuckian's rant against extrajudicial drone killings was "simply false."

Quoting extensively from a Wall Street Journal editorial that mocked Paul, McCain also argued that Paul had belittled the growing use of drones to kill terrorism suspects by invoking the name of Jane Fonda and suggesting a drone could have killed her when she was a Vietnam War protester.

Paul took to the floor Wednesday for nearly 13 hours, hoping to pressure the White House to declare whether or not it might use a drone to strike an American citizen in the United States.

McCain, a former Vietnam prisoner of war, was not impressed.

"I watched some of that, quote, debate, unquote, yesterday," McCain said. "I saw colleagues who know better come to the floor and voice some of this same concern, which is totally unfounded.

"I must say that the use of Jane Fonda's name does evoke certain memories with me, and I must say that she is not my favorite American. But I also believe that, as odious as it was, Ms. Fonda acted within her constitutional rights, and to somehow say that someone who disagrees with American policy -- and even may demonstrate against it -- is somehow a member of an organization which makes that individual an enemy combatant is simply false," McCain said, hitting his lectern for emphasis. "It is simply false."

McCain said it was "ridiculous" and "a stretch of the imagination" to "allege or infer that the President of the United States is going to kill somebody like Jane Fonda, or somebody who disagrees with the policies."

The Wall Street Journal editorial he quoted was even more scathing, declaring, "Give Rand Paul credit for theatrical timing, as a snow storm descended on Washington. The filibuster filled the attention void on Twitter and cable TV. If only his reasoning matched the showmanship."

The editorial also complained that Paul should not be shocked that the United States might kill a citizen by drone strike within its own borders, arguing that the Obama administration is well within its rights to kill enemies of the country, wherever they may be.

Paul has vigorously opposed the growing use of drones by the administration, saying the strikes violate due process guaranteed under the Constitution and permit the president to act as judge, jury and executioner.""

Okay, let's use some logic.
If the drone program existed and the president told Gibbs to deny it existed, what would that be called based on your understanding of a lie?
OK lets use the truth.

Gibbs was told not to acknowledge the existence of the drone program, that is not the same as denying it existed.

And if any of that were true, which would be better off - the 6, or the 801?
