Can anyone picture this scenario if Obama and his "team IRS" hadn't been caught?
Picture poor Mr. Jones, a 78-year-old man who has several medical problems and frequent falls and is in need of a power wheelchair. The IRS will decide if Mr. Jones' quality of life is worth the cost of a power wheelchair and, if he is a republican, they will also do an audit on him at the same time he's wobbling with a walker, falling down and crawling to the bathroom.
Why is that so easy for me to imagine? Is it just me?
Its just you. No one else is that uninformed to think the IRS will determine if you get a power wheelchair.

....al-Awlaki was no ordinary enemy. He was a U.S. citizen. By what right does the president order the killing by drone of an American? Where’s the due process?
Answer: Once you take up arms against the United States, you become an enemy combatant, thereby forfeiting the privileges of citizenship and the protections of the Constitution, including due process. You retain only the protection of the laws of war — no more and no less than those of your foreign comrades-in-arms.

I agree. Once you take up arms against this country, you are no longer a citizen with rights.

But answer me this. Why does Obama have no problem droning an American who joined the enemy but wants to try all other foreign terrorists in our courts - rights and all?

Kind of kooky and backwards. Don't you agree?

Twenty minutes inland of Atlantic City Homer.

SPOTTY Power outages (INLAND NJ-NOT including the VAST shoreline area that of which received the MAJOR impacts)for ohhh---about five hours...the evening OF the storm. After that-NO problemos.
SPOTTY outages in CT, shoreline AND inland.

We ALL saw Staten Island (does the ISLAND part give ya hint) and the COASTLINES, from Jersey on up.

Hope you folks in Pa weren't too sunk out by power outages, while the East COASTAL areas SWAM.

Fck YOU Homer- for apparently NOT knowing the difference between NJ/NY/CT/RI shorelines (and INLANDS) and PA.

Next time, maybe look at a map FIRST.

"Punish our enemies." Obama wasn't talking about terrorists.

Good thing you're on his friendly side. Must be nice.

Fact is, you and Obama could care less about the rest of us who refuse to fall in line like good little liberal soldiers.

I suspect your problem is comprehension. You should get that fixed.
Then again, that would require the desire on your part to do so!
Let's see how my comprehension is. The question was what did Bush do that caused you to conlcude he was a terrible president. Your answer was "he didn't do anything good".
Let's assume Bush actually did something. And, let's consider your answer "nothing good". Therefore, Bush did something that caused you to label him a terrible president.
Once again. What was it that Bush did that caused you to think he was a terrible president?

Get a clue dumbrowski...I'll help ya.

The COASTAL SANDBAR @ sea level areas were SLAMMED.

As in -NOT much for ELEVATION levels on MILES of sandbar land...so 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?

You hear they know where 8 of the people involved with Benghazi are but won't detain because they haven't gathered enough info to bring them to trail. They even know the brand of coffee they drink. Something mighty fishy going on there.

wow. Obama expressing a right wing talking point. mark your calender.
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.

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?

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.”
