Krauthammer supports drone program?

O'REILLY: Ok now you wrote a column and said that Charles Krauthammer supports the presidential authority to drop drones on terrorists and kill them, a very controversial issue. Briefly do you understand why a lot of conservatives are against it, they don't want to give the President that kind of authority life and death?

KRAUTHAMMER: I do understand it and I received a lot of incoming since the weekend when I published the column. I understand it. But the problem is this, under the constitution the commander-in-chief conducts wars. Lincoln did, FDR did, every president is the highest authority when it comes to deciding who lives and who dies.

Look, Lyndon Johnson picked out targets on which we dropped bombs in Vietnam. FDR and Truman decided what cities, entire cities we would wipe out. There was no review, there was no committee there was no input anyone else. In the end --

O'REILLY: But that was a declared war, though, we don't have a declared war --

KRAUTHAMMER: No, it is a declared war. What we have is the authorization for the use of force passed three days after 9/11, which as in the Gulf war and as in the Iraq war is the modern equivalent of a declaration of war. You do that and we declared who the enemy was. The people who did 9/11 and all those who harbored or abetted them and that declaration --

(CROSSTALK)

O'REILLY: Do you think that -- do you think that if Mitt Romney we're elected president, it's a hypothetical but it's in context to the discussion -- if Mitt Romney have been elected president I think he would have continued the drone program. Do you think there would have been as much conservative opposition if it were Republicans dropping the drones as opposed to Obama? Isn't this about Obama?

KRAUTHAMMER: No, I don't. I think it would be the same amount of opposition. I think it's a principled opposition. These are people who worry about the extent of the power of government. It would have been the same in Bush administration. The real hypocrisy here is the liberals. If this had been the Bush administration dropping drones onto even Americans --

O'REILLY: Oh I mean, but we've done that. You know.

KRAUTHAMMER: Al Qaeda I mean you would know that.

O'REILLY: Absolutely.

KRAUTHAMMER: No I think there are principles at stake. I respect the opposition on this issue, but I don't see any alternative to having unity of command in the conduct of the war. And the principle here even if you attack an American as we did al-Awlaki, if you take up arms against the United States, even if you are a U.S. citizen.

O'REILLY: That's treason.

KRAUTHAMMER: You forfeit the privileges of citizenship including the protections of the Constitution and the Fifth Amendment due process. And once you do that by being an enemy combatant we can drone you the way that we do an Afghan or a Saudi or a Yemeni. There is no difference.

O'REILLY: All right Charles Krauthammer everybody. Thanks as always.

You would prefer that poster refer to the president, nobama, as a girl. You may have a point, he plays basketball like an unskilled girl or a klutz boy.
I will spell the word correctly, it isBULLSHIT, something you are very familiar with, you are one of the bona fide racists on this thread. Everyone who dares to disagree with you is aracist. Face up to the facts, in addition to being a racists, you are a bigoted hypocrite.

Oh please.

You actually expect anyone to believe that load of crap.

And you are just as bad - Protecting & defending the use of racial slurs.

Show me once where I called someone a racist because they just disagreed with me.

I guarantee it was because they made a racial slur.

Funny how you defend those that use of racial slurs.

What does that make you? a racist f*ck.

Is there a single right whiner postig here that does not defend the use of racial slurs?

An American on American soil and you advocate drone attacks to off him? This is not the far east, this is America, why not go in an arrest the asshole, give him due process and go on from there? With president nobama's strategic skill it would after all be no problem to capture him on American soil. Remember nobama is a genius, he planned down to the smallest detail the operation that took out bin Laden, he was sure of the mission's success that he had to be dragged off a golf course for a photo op.

Al Awlaki was on US soil wen he was killed? Really?

I never said I condoned the President killing US citizens on US soil where there was not an immanent threat to others.

You right whiners are so embarrassed Obama did what your hero Bush decided not to do, kill Bin Laden, that you have to make up lies.

Pathetic pieces of sh*t that you are.

One more time you dance and dodge. I mentioned nothing about Al Awlaki. I have commented favorably about his demise as he was on foreign soil and fighting against American interests. if an asshole like him was doing the same I would prefer he was captured and tried but if died resisting arrest that would not be a problem. But with nobama as president and the chief strategist planning the operation down to the smallest detail I have no doubt that he would have been captured.

Not even close. Maxine Waters is dumb.

flack is not dumb by any means, measure or manner.

Maxine Waters is an ILLITERATE arse who would do well to keep
"the lily binkie" stuffed in her mouth.

flack is neither illiterate nor an arse.

So stick your peg on The Donkey!

Are Republicans the New Democrats?
Who would have guessed last year that the GOP would be endorsing a litany of previously unthinkable positions? Elections have consequences, and this time, an identity crisis seems to be one of them.
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/03...
seeing as how you're the poster child for identity crisis.
There won't BE a Republican party in the future. Why would anybody bother with campaigning or voting Republican when they know that the Democrats will always be the majority voters? Thanks for the immigration "reform", Mr. Obamanation.
