Obama never denied it, so why do you? Obama went on to say that as President he took an oath to protect the American people to the best of his ability ---killing a American citizen who has rejected his own country and its laws so as to kill other Americans was a hard decision ,but one like a police swat team must make to kill an armed gunman with no intention of being taken alive.
He took an oath to protect the Constitution, which protects the American people.
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.

Mr. Portnoy...
I am to the point I now announce myself as an Independent. Speaker Boehner let us down terribly, right when Obama was being hit with the deserved advise "MAN UP". Speaker Boehner went LIMP! When Obama put his arm around the Speaker's neck and then patted him on the leg after their one on one meeting. I felt gut sick...I said to myself "Boehner's caved". And, he had. Its been a down hill slide ever since then. Find that news clip...look at it...you can't miss the shame in Boehner's body language.
I love our country. Obama does not. Its that simple. Please with your contacts help me save our beloved United States of America. I want my country back! The one my Father fought in two wars for! I was raised to respect the President. I no longer can do that in all sincerity. I said The Pledge of Allegiance with hand over heart every school day, and was proud to do it. Its hard to wrap my head around how Obama was re-elected. The MAJORITY for sure did not want HIM! We need to reinstate the moral fiber men like my Father and President Reagan and President Kennedy had.
God is condemning our country now. We don't want a one world Government...we are the USA and we stand tall just as we are if we can get the corruptness out of the White House. We want the UN out of America's business too! How we achieve this without a revolution I don't have the answer. I do know we MUST achieve this to get our country back.
Will I fight for America? Yep! You betcha' I will. The Statue of Liberty is hanging her head in shame. I want her to have her head up and be as proud as the day I saw her coming into the harbor after the Korean conflict. I welled up with pride for my beautiful, proud, brave and free country and I was yet a young girl. Not Political...just had that unfathomable feeling my homeland was a very special place and I was so happy to be home.
Today, my children and g-children don't have that inside them to the degree I did. I wish they had it...but History is being distorted in the classrooms...we've lost the land of the free and the home of the brave without a doubt. They are made to question, and then this MAN in OUR WHITE HOUSE goes around the world apologizing for AMERICA! Excuse me...but he is not proud and Presidential.
He is arrogant and ashamed and has the audacity to lead the world into believing its how we feel. He has NO RIGHT.
He is BAD BAD BAD.
Despicable!
He wants to be a King and have subjects bow to him...He is so in love with himself...and he is a phony and his word is not his bond, no-sirree!! You invited comments, I've made mine sir.
Thank you,
rosa

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.
No, it's not "Marxism" . Moral capitalism is straight out of Republican President Rutherford B. Hayes's Diary: "The progress of society is mainly the improvement in the condition of the workingmen of the world." ["The unrestricted competition so commonly advocated does not leave us the survival of the fittest. The unscrupulous succeed best in accumulating wealth."]["Universal suffrage should rest upon universal education. To this end, liberal and permanent provision should be made for the support of free schools by the State governments, and, if need be, supplemented by legitimate aid from national authority."]["Abolis h plutocracy if you would abolish poverty. As millionaires increase, pauperism grows. The more millionaires, the more paupers."]

The liberal loons are in a quandary. They have a problem, the can bring up nothing to extol president nobama who has done nothing. Well that is oncorrect, since he took office;
- Food stamp usage has increased by about 15 million
- Household income is down about 5%
- Public debt has increased by about 6 trillion dollars
- nobamakare was enacted which will cost about a trillion dollars over its first 10 years
- Home values are lower and home sales are down
- nearly 4 million more American's are living in poverty
As they have nothing positive to laud nobama for they attack Bush.

YOUR war in Iraq cost over a TRILLION.

and no one got checked for a hernia!

A TRILLION in bombs and death, right winger nirvana!

YOU said it: a trillion OVER 10 years for citizen healthcare!

(which is bs)

It won't cost a dime!

It's coverage citizens buy!! Guaranteed by law, no one can be turned down.

Right wingers: so crazy it shows.

WRONG STUPID! The protection of the President is not the function of the Marines but rather the Secret Service. The Marines are used on occasions such as when a foreign dignitary is being received for ceremonial duties and sometimes that means holding an umbrella to keep the President and his guest dry.

Look! They said they knew where they were and who they are but are waiting till all the evidence is in before they pick them up and bring them to the US for trial. If you have a problem with that take it up with the Obama administration. Look it up for yourself.

In peacetime; not under conditions of war.[Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 of the United States Constitution, sometimes referred to as the War Powers Clause, vests in the Congress the power to declare war, in the following wording:

[Congress shall have Power...] To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water; ][THE PRESIDENT'S CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY TO CONDUCT MILITARY OPERATIONS AGAINST TERRORISTS AND NATIONS SUPPORTING THEM

The President has broad constitutional power to take military action in response to the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001. Congress has acknowledged this inherent executive power in both the War Powers Resolution and the Joint Resolution passed by Congress on September 14, 2001.

The President has constitutional power not only to retaliate against any person, organization, or State suspected of involvement in terrorist attacks on the United States, but also against foreign States suspected of harboring or supporting such organizations.

The President may deploy military force preemptively against terrorist organizations or the States that harbor or support them, whether or not they can be linked to the specific terrorist incidents of September 11.] www.justice.gov/olc/warpowers925.htm&#820... ;

Dear American citizen,

Do you care about the IRS "scandal"
NO.

Do you care about Libya?
NO.

Do you care about drone attacks against terrorists?
NO.

What if a terrorist is a USA citizen?
NO. Hit him twice for us!

Do you want affordable healthcare insurance, guaranteed by law?
YES.

Do you think the USA can afford shelters for elementary schools in tornado alley?
YES.

Really?
YES.

But the conservatives, Republicans, right wingers, etc.... said the USA can't afford shelters for school kids, but can afford TRILLION dollar wars.

Like the citizens said in November: Hey Republicans, hit the road you lying scumbagggs!!!

Take your crazy to hell with the rest of you!
