<quoted text>I don't recall you ever answering the question about Obama thinking he had the right to kill any American citizen anywhere at his whim.
Given that Obama is helping the Taliban gain control of Afghanistan again, I don't believe he's killing terrorists.
I wonder if Obama is a hired killer who uses the US muscle to help one terrorist faction eliminate a competing terrorist faction. Obama is obviously on the side of the Afab terrorists. So, there must be some other reason the drone strikes continue.
Obama helped the Mexican drug cartel against their competitors.

Obama was placed by the Saudi Arabia house to bring Shariah law into America.

Benghazi was a failed attempt to establish anti-Islam blasphemy laws, the most important law in Sharia Law.

<quoted text>Why does that policy apply to only American citizens?

Why does Obama have no problem droning an American who joined the enemy but wants to try all other foreign terrorists in our courts? Ass backwards, don't you think?

And, just how do you reconcile the fact that Obama promised the Taliban would be part of the future government of Afghanistan, while at the same time pretending to be at war with them?
Because ALL Liberals hate America.

The COASTAL SANDBAR @ sea level areas were SLAMMED.
As in -NOT much for ELEVATION levels on MILES of sandbar respective "distance" from actual "beachside" when referencing properties, is rather IRRELEVANT.
It takes massive amounts of aid to actually clean up and restore from such disasters.
The difference being-cleanup and restoration being HANDLED, not dollars being taken and WASTED on whatever!
A Sandbar is a sandbar-subjected to water inundation-kind of like an ISLAND, duhmmy.
Are you Realllllly, THAT ignorant?
Try to keep up jackass. Your mental twin said Sandy funding bill was for wealthy beach house owners.

Get a f*cking clue. Either understand the conversation or STFU.

Places like Staten Island, Sayreville & South River are hardly beach communities filled with wealthy beach homes. These are middle class & poorer communities with people much like those in Moore OK.

For you to defend the idea that Moore should get federal relief ad not Sandy is just stupids.

<quoted text> Digging up Sarah Palin's old canard on 'death panels' i Obamacare. You're right about 'death panels',but wrong about being put in Obamacare. Barney Frank put the 'death panels' in the Dodd-Frank Finance Reform Bill; they will decide if corrupt , socially irresponsible Wall Street banks that broke the Public Trust should remain on Government life support or be killed outright.
You really are ignorant about the purpose of Obamacare.

If the government says it has to control health-care costs and then offers to pay doctors to give advice about hospice care and end-of-life decisions, people are not delusional to conclude that the goal is to reduce end-of-life spending.

It's just a matter of common sense.

<quoted text>
The same person that has been blamed before Obama.....THE ONE IN CHARGE!!! That is the reality that Obamabots haven't faced yet. Obama is being treated no different than any president in history. All president's are held accountable for THEIR administrations and the agenda they follow while in office. That's the way it goes and the way it has always gone. Nothing different. It's called Responsibility and Accountability. EVERY president has been expected to have both! The only difference in this case is that liberals don't hold Obama accountable nor do they believe he is responsible for anything that happens during his administration. It is only those that agree with Obama's agenda that are being different. The rest of us are treating him just like every president before him and just like every president that will follow him.
Bullshit. He's the President in Absentia. Not only is he never held responsible, his Cabinet, department heads, lackeys, and groupies don't have a clue what's going on around them either. It's as if you're all mindless drones guided by the dishonesty imprinted in your DNA.

Obama simply doesn't know what to do with them. Does he send them to Gitmo when he said he would close Gitmo five years ago?

The only other alternative is to round them up and try them in our courts with the same rights as American citizens - lawyers, Miranda rights, the taxpayer cost of holding them and trying them, the whole kit and kaboodle.

He won't drop a drone on them though. Just Americans who take up arms and act like them.

Krauthammer: Of all issues, Rand Paul’s drone concern ‘most ridiculous and absurd’
On this weekend’s broadcast of the syndicated “Inside Washington” television program, conservative Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer blasted Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul’s recent filibuster and mocked the idea of a drone attack on United States soil.
“Well look, I am grateful he raised this issue, because I think we have reached a point in the country where we are sick and tired of the way the administration is going around blowing people to kingdom come while sitting in their living rooms because of a suspicion — I’m talking about Americans,” Krauthammer said.“Just last week, my neighbor was blown away during a chicken barbecue by his pool.”

When asked whether the president had the authority to order any American killed within the borders of the United States at his whim, why did it take Obama two weeks to answer that question?
It's a simple answer. It takes less than 10 seconds. Anyone who has ever read the Constitution at least once in their life will know it:

"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation."

In short:
No person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.

Why did it take a (supposed) constitutional lawyer two weeks to discover this?

That is the problem. Obama doesn't even know what's written in the Constitution because he's never read it. But, why should he read it? He's been indoctrinated his entire life in the belief that it should be eliminated. There's no reason to learn something that isn't even relevant.
