As Neocons Defend Obama, Allies Doubt Him on Drones as Never Before

John Bolton, former ambassador to the UN, says the drone program "appears to be consistent with the policies of the Bush administration," in which he served. Max Boot of Commentary insists Obama's drone memo is a "careful, responsible document." I'd half expect John Yoo to start praising Obama if he weren't busy "turning away in disgust" at the McRib's disappearance from his local McDonald's.

Dick Cheney has yet to comment.

Meanwhile, Obama is taking more criticism than usual from normally friendly quarters. The Huffington Post, a sprawling landscape of content, has published criticism of the president on many occasions, but I don't know that I've ever seen its home page go after him like this:.....

It took until President George W. Bush's second term for the press to become sufficiently adversarial in the realm of foreign policy, where journalists parroted misinformation and implausible arguments for some years and too frequently gave officials the benefit of the doubt. I hope the Huffington Post's tough treatment is remembered as one of the moments when the press stopped trusting Obama too much.

In that Constitution Obama swore to obey, it states that the ONLY way the government can kill anyone inside the boundary or authority of the Constitution is through due process of law.
The Constitution doesn't mince words in the 5th Amendment. It's very straight-forward. The government cannot kill anyone inside the boundary of authority of the Constitution without due process of law.
Just what don't you understand about that?
And, why did Obama not know that, considering that he pretends to be a constitutional lawyer.

As I told you before my little peach, since you only offer your opinion there's nothing to refute. So no evidence for anything is needed.

You can have all the opinions you want. They're free, cost nothing and is only of any value to you. And that's the extent of your reality.

You're an idiot for mixing it up for anything more.

Too bad. If you were more mentally mature, you would understand!

i'm just so sure no one will ever bring up the fact that she donated to Romney's campaign fund.

not so nonpartisan eh? so why do you think she's in this position? because she thought that the Tea Party was hurting Mitt? or maybe because she was tired of seeing nutjobs spouting far right nonsense about most everything and it was hurting the GOP?

and was it nonpartisan when Bush had nearly every government agency, that could, go after liberals? or am i overstepping by actually remembering past history? bad habit of mine, but i just can't seem to avoid it every time i search for justified comparisons to past administrations. maybe you wingnuts should start pushing for a law to make an internet search with the terms 'Bush did it to' illegal; and those pesky history books will need a Texas style makeover, but hey, a new cause for the right wing nutjobs is always good for FOX ratings.

10 Examples of Bush and the Republicans Using Government Power to Target Critics

They say two wrongs don't make a right, but ignoring one of those wrongs while vilifying the other is intellectually dishonest and violently hypocritical, among other things. And certainly that's the case surrounding news that the IRS targeted tea-party groups as a means of determining and verifying their tax-exempt status has resurrected a familiar debate about government overreach and abuse of power.

As of right now, it's unknown whether the IRS was acting on the behalf of the Obama White House. What we do know, however, is that it's not the first time something like this has happened. And we know that the lock-step party, the Republicans, spent eight years defending, applauding and enabling Bush abuses on this front, while subsequently cheerleading the congressional Republicans as they carry forward the politics of intimidation and government overreach into the Obama era.

Let's begin there. The congressional Republicans are outraged by the IRS story, but they haven't been able to scramble to the floor of the House quickly enough to target left-leaning groups. Yes, the following list contains some forgotten history from the Bush years, but the first three items are quite new and ongoing.

1. Planned Parenthood. After a hoax video was produced by James O'Keefe and released by a professional clown-wrangler, the late Andrew Breitbart, the Republican Party has engaged in a years-long effort to strip the organization, which offers cancer screenings and other affordable medical services for women, of critical funding from the government. The votes in the House as well as in state legislatures from Arizona to New Jersey to Texas and New Hampshire -- to the tune of at least $60 million -- are nothing more than assault against a political enemy.

2. ACORN. The government attack on ACORN, traditionally a left-leaning organization, might be hilarious if it wasn't so tragic. As with Planned Parenthood, the Republican inquisition against ACORN was nothing more than a politically motivated witch hunt based on, once again, a selectively-edited prank video by a scam artist, O'Keefe, who's been convicted of wiretapping a sitting U.S. Senator and forced in court to pay $100,000 in restitution to a fired ACORN employee. Yet the entire Republican congressional delegation lined up behind Breitbart and O'Keefe and destroyed ACORN, which entirely shut down in 2010. But that hasn't stopped the Republicans from continuing to vote on at least several occasions to defund the nonexistent group. In fact, last week the chairman House Appropriations Committee Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) introduced a section into a spending bill that reads: "None of the funds made available in this Act may be distributed to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) or its subsidiaries or successors."

3. Voter ID Laws and Voter Purges. Whether it's Governor Rick Scott of Florida purging voter rolls of minority voters who are likely to vote for Democratic candidates or states like Georgia, Indiana, Kansas and Tennessee passing restrictive Voter ID laws, the Republicans are making sure that fewer and fewer Democrats will be able to freely cast a ballot -- our most sacred right as citizens in a representative democracy.

2007....

Democrats Were Targets in Inquiries, Panel Is Told

Richard L. Thornburgh, attorney general in the Reagan and first Bush administrations, charged Tuesday that political reasons motivated the Justice Department to open corruption investigations against Democrats in Mr. Thornburgh’s home state, Pennsylvania.

In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, Mr. Thornburgh became the first former Republican attorney general to join with Democratic lawmakers to suggest that the Justice Department under Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales had singled out Democratic politicians for prosecution.

“The citizens of the United States must have confidence that the department is conducting itself in a fair and impartial manner without actual political influence or the appearance of political influence,” said Mr. Thornburgh, who is now in private practice. He is defending the former elected Democratic coroner of Allegheny County, Pa., against federal corruption charges.“Unfortunately that may no longer be the case.”

IRS collected taxpayers' party affiliations

As it tries to hunt down tax scofflaws, the Internal Revenue Service has collected information on the political party affiliations of taxpayers in 20 states.

One senator called it an "outrageous violation of the public trust."

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.
There's some mighty fine places in those beach towns that did get taken out too though Duhmmy...and yes, I realize, there are LOTS of average Joe's and Jane's working class folks that got slammed.
However, up in THOSE necks of the woods, people actually PAY regularly for something called "homeowners insurance".
Although.. with a storm doing that magnitude of damage to whole TOWNS and the municipal buildings thereof, certainly federal aid funds should be consider as well.

Plz feel free to fill me in as well, on who's defending a duhm idea like one storm ravaged place getting funding help, while another one wouldn't?
Because that would be pretty ignorant.

I personally just wonder why more of the homes in Moore, didn't appear to have full basement foundations. No building codes, in "tornado alley"?

The dominant majority of companies in the country are small business, and you fucking Marxists pretend they don't exist. I guess that fact just doesn't fit into your propaganda.
A good Magician can always distract the audience enough to be able to move a coin, remove an assistant or pull a Rabbit from a hat while unseen.

Liberals take their cue from the Magic Negro nowadays. Let's not talk about a deficit that's run amok or Mexican thieves crossing the border at night. Instead, let's talk about starving children, poor minorities, gay marriage and promoting the Solar Industry to make this a better world!
