He could have just called him and saved everyone from listening to his whining for 13 hours. Talk about torture. He's an idiot, both sides hate him.
Now he says he wants to run for President! Pls nominate this fool.
Hillary Clinton polled against anyone; wins.
Hillary will be thrown under the bus by Obama in favor of his chosen successor, a surrogate candidate to allow Obama to retain power.

Unemployment down because of lower labor force participation rate.

Before long there will be no unemployment because nobody will bother working for Obama.

WASHINGTON — Weeks after he was first arrested in Turkey, a son-in-law of Osama bin Laden who once served as a spokesman for Al Qaeda will appear in a New York courtroom on Friday to face terrorism charges that could result in life imprisonment
The arrest of Mr. Abu Ghaith was the rare occasion in which a Qaeda operative was detained overseas rather than killed. The Obama administration has expanded the use of targeted killing operations in Pakistan, Yemen and elsewhere, asserting that they are justified when there is no possibility of capture.
Spokesmen for the C.I.A. and the White House declined to comment.
Three terrorism defendants, who were extradited from Britain in October, are already facing trial in Manhattan.
They include Abu Hamza al-Masri, the fiery Islamic preacher who has been charged with conspiring in a 1998 kidnapping of American and other tourists in Yemen and in trying to help establish a terrorist training camp in Oregon, and Adel Abdul Bary, charged with conspiring in the 1998 bombings of two United States Embassies in East Africa. Both have pleaded not guilty.

Send the trash to Guantanamo for a quick military trial and execution.

A Third-World jury in New York will never convict, for the same reason that OJ was acquitted in downtown LA.

As usual, you're wrong. Apparently, you can't read, as well as you can't write.

Try reading what holder actually said.

It was not 'NO'. It was "It depends". And you're still a crybaby whining about losing the election.

Cry me a river, nitwit!! Mitt lost!!

Jobs are shipped overseas because of taxation, unions, and excessive regulation. Attack those problems if you want a solution.
Galt proclaims financial institutions are blameless for the near financial; collapse. Typical right whiners putting Corporate America ahead of the good of this country.

Galt believes it is in the bet interest of this country to subsidize companies exporting jobs & investment money.

Poll: Majority of Americans Opposed to Being Killed by Drone

Posted by Andy Borowitz
MINNEAPOLIS (The Borowitz Report)—In a possible setback for the Administration’s controversial drone policy, a new poll conducted by the University of Minnesota shows that a broad majority of Americans are opposed to being killed by a drone strike on U.S. soil.

The poll, which has a margin of error of plus or minus five percentage points, showed that ninety-seven per cent of those surveyed “strongly agreed” with the statement,“I personally do not want to be killed by a drone,” with three per cent responding,“Don’t know/No opinion.”


“There’s no other way to interpret these numbers,” said the University of Minnesota’s Davis Logsdon, who oversaw the survey.“The idea of being killed by a drone is not playing well out there.”

And while the poll numbers may not augur well for the Administration’s expanding use of drones, the response was even more negative in a focus group of likely drone victims.
One member of that group, a forty-three-year-old male from St. Paul, complained that “it doesn’t even seem like the government is trying to come up with alternatives to killing us with drones.”

“It seems like they could figure out some kind of system where instead of just being killed by a drone, people could maybe present evidence to see if they’re guilty or not,” he said.

At the White House, spokesman Jay Carney tried to make the best of the poll results, telling reporters,“Look, people are afraid of getting killed by a drone. We get that. But there is still broad public support for drones killing somebody else.”
