Brennan confirmed as CIA director.

Replaces Petreaus whose gal pal was blabbing sensitive US government information around during her various speaking engagements. Maybe the crazy Arab gal from Tampa did the US a big favor by outing the little guy's squeeze eh?

'The President is tobacco-free': Obama's doctor confirms the 'Smoker-in-Chief' has quit

With the economy in tatters and his opponents baying for blood, it's a stressful time for President Obama.
But the president does have one achievement he can be proud of- he has given up smoking, and now his doctor has confirmed it.
The results of Obama's second medical examination since taking office, were released by the White House today, and the President was declared 'tobacco free'.

During the debt crisis in August this year the President was photographed in the Oval Office with what appeared to be Nicorette gum on his desk.
The latest results declare the president in 'excellent health and 'fit at 50'.
Perhaps as a result of giving up smoking the President has gained a little weight, and now weighs 181.3 lb, up from 179.9 lb last year.
His cholesterol has also come down since his last examination. When he first took office it jumped to 209. Then White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said it might have something to do with having a dedicated White House pastry chef. It's now back at 193.

Like nitwits everywhere, you've been caught in yet another lie.

That's all you're capable of, lies and ignorance.

While you live off Gov't handouts.

Such a pretentious little fairy cross dresser you are!!

Rand Paul Slammed By WSJ Editorial Page Over Epic Filibuster On Drones
""The conservative Wall Street Journal editorial board slammed Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) Thursday for his almost 13-hour filibuster against John Brennan, the nominee for CIA director, over the fact that Attorney General Eric Holder said the U.S. government had the legal authority to kill an American citizen on U.S. soil.
"Calm down, Senator," wrote the editors. "Mr. Holder is right, even if he doesn't explain the law very well. The U.S. government cannot randomly target American citizens on U.S. soil or anywhere else. What it can do under the laws of war is target an "enemy combatant" anywhere at anytime, including on U.S. soil. This includes a U.S. citizen who is also an enemy combatant."
The Journal board is hawkish, to be sure. But Paul's move found support in unlikely conservative quarters. The Heritage Foundation, where David Addington, the architect behind many of President George W. Bush's policies in the wake of 9/11 and a former aide to Dick Cheney, is a top official, said that it supported the filibuster. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, meanwhile, tweeted her support of Paul, while not saying exactly whether she supported the drone program.
In the end, 15 senators joined the filibuster in support of Paul, including Tea Party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). Sens. Ron Wyden of Oregon and Dick Durbin of Illinois were the only Democrats to speak.""
----

And who does the illegal 'president' and his illegal regime plan on targeting with their UN-Constitutional thus UN-Lawful 'acts'? Let's let them speak for themselves:

The specifics of those cuts indicated on a line graph, however, were still nowhere to be found.
The sad truth is Obama is not interested in cutting spending frugally. He actually wants to spend more than he cuts while raising taxes yet again.
he said, she said, you said.

your sad truth is worth nothing. unless you're a FOX talking head who gets paid for their OPINION.

Last night’s epic talking filibuster by Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, joined by senators Republican and Democrat (well, one Democrat), brought the GOP caucus, however briefly, around to a civil libertarian position scarcely imaginable for those of us who remember the George W. Bush years.

ok, speak up....how many don't remember the Bush years?

pretty much the right wing media take.....

As for the hypothetical of drone attacks on American citizens on our soil, we can’t help the sneaking suspicion that it is much ado. In the letter to Paul that became the occasion for the filibuster, Holder reserved the administration’s right to launch an attack in the circumstance of a Pearl Harbor or 9/11. Of course, President Bush did in fact authorize the downing of hijacked planes by military aircraft on September 11. If we were to again face a similarly imminent threat, even Rand Paul wouldn’t object to responding with all appropriate force at our disposal, presumably even if it included a drone (suddenly the world’s most feared weapon).

On the other hand, Holder told Senator Ted Cruz at a Judiciary Committee hearing — after persistent questioning — that attacking on our soil an American citizen who is an enemy combatant in the absence of such a threat would be unconstitutional. We are not sure he is right about that. It would be possible to craft extreme scenarios — involving invasions, domestic insurrections, or other outlandish circumstances — in which such an attack would pass muster. But we would be testing the boundaries of the plausible, and of the Constitution. It is true that an enemy combatant who is an American citizen is still an enemy combatant and can be treated as such, but the rules are different here on our soil, where our laws apply, as opposed to the badlands of Yemen, where they don’t. As a practical matter, there are plenty of armed domestic forces here — the FBI, heck even the Social Security Administration — who may detain a terrorist and even use lethal force if necessary without anyone needing to ask the air force to rain down Hellfire missiles.

We suspect the day an administration starts killing Americans with drones at cafes — to borrow one of Rand Paul’s hypotheticals — is the day impeachment proceedings begin. If Congress is worried, though, there is a simple expedient. As Andy McCarthy has written,“Nothing prevents Congress from amending the AUMF to provide explicit protections for Americans suspected of colluding with this unique enemy. Congress could, for example, instruct that in the absence of an attack or a truly imminent threat, the president is not authorized to use lethal force in the United States against Americans suspected of being enemy combatants. Congress could also define what it means by ‘imminent.’”

The Rand Paul filibuster was great entertainment and will probably mark a new stage in his emergence as a national figure. We salute his brio, even if we suspect he is ultimately fighting a phantom menace.
