Have to disagree with you.Holder would not come out and admit it was against the Constitution!!Yhat was what the entire act was all about.The simle fact is he then did come out and say it after the Paul`s filibuster!!!Make fun of him all you want,He was right,did what was right,and won!!!Of course mant do not like that from a conservative.I do.McCain, Graham rebuke Sen. Paul for filibuster over drones
On Thursday Paul received a letter from Attorney General Eric Holder saying that the president does not have the authority "to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil."
duh, was it colored for him too and with the big second grade paper and large letters to help him connect the dots...what an idiot
Graham scoffed at Paul’s question about whether Obama thinks he has the authority to kill a noncombatant American citizen on U.S. soil.
“I find the question offensive,” Graham said Thursday on the Senate floor.“As much I disagree with President Obama and as much as I support past presidents, I do not believe that question deserves an answer.” Paul’s question, the South Carolina Republican said,“cheapens the debate.”
Graham said flatly that Obama would not use a drone against a noncombatant sitting in a café somewhere in the United States.
But there was less of a policy split that might have appeared on the surface: Paul repeatedly said during his filibuster that the government can and should use lethal force in cases when an attack is imminent.
When Holder testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday he repeatedly said the use of a drone to kill an American citizen on U.S. soil who wasn’t an imminent threat wouldn’t be an “appropriate” use of lethal force.
After repeated questioning from Sen. Ted Cruz, R- Texas, Holder finally said it would also not be constitutional. Holder said,“I thought I was saying ‘no.’ All right, no.”
In his comments on the Senate floor Thursday, Graham reprised the points he made Wednesday during the Holder hearing.
Rand is teabagging idiot and it will backfire on him. Look how many GOP come to eat the junior teabagger hoping to run for President. hahahaha...Just too funny. They eat their own and we get to watch.
Sorry whitehair, he looks like a clown from KY, huffing and puffing his inability to understand the first time Holden told him. Too funny. I am sure there is more to come. 13hours he was holding it in is even funnier. hahaha

*MORE THAN HALF OF ALL AMERICANS, NOW ON OBAMA'S 4 YEAR WATCH, ARE AT LEAST PARTIALLY FINANCIALLY DEPENDENT UPON THE GOVERNMENT.
*Obama has been traveling around the country claiming doom and gloom and blaming the republicans for HIS sequestration brain fart. Here are a couple of Obama's spending skills while blaming others for his failures. The Obama administration spent $592,527.00 on a study to determine why chimpanzee's throw their poop. The Obama administration gave 250 million dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. The Obama administration gave the Muslim Brotherhood rebels in Syria 16 F16 jet fighters as a gift from Obama and the democrats.
*The US government, under Obama's leadership (??lol), ran a budget deficit of well over a trillion dollars EVERY YEAR that Obama has been president.
*Since Obama took office the US National Debt has INCREASED 50%.
*During the last 4 years of the Obama administration the US National Debt has grown MORE than it did from the time George Washington was president to the beginning of Bill Clinton's second term. And you and your ilk, uncle flabby, brag that Obama was right when he bragged that he was the slowest spending president ever. What a joke!
Hope you learned something. I know you won't be able to admit that I am right and these facts are all true but just knowing that you know they are true is enough satisfaction for me. Read 'em and weep kool-aid man! lmao
#84956 Mar 7, 2013
Where are you at flabby? You wanted answers and said you would be waiting. Wait no longer. I gave you the answers (facts) and now you have disappeared. Are you listening to Rush and can't be bothered right now? LMAO It's okay Unc. You've been very wrong on here before and hid your head for awhile and we didn't make too much fun of your ignorant ass for doing so.

Oh well, flabby was in such a rush for answers and I gave him those answers and now he is MIA! Typical. lol I will just go ahead and fix and eat dinner (food I worked for and bought with my money) and check back on our missing topix idiot after while. Maybe Uncle flabby is trying out a new government cheese recipe while he listens to Rush on the radio. lmao

I would guess that you would whitehair, you are a good faithful teabagger. One of the most respectful I have come in contact with. You got to understand whitehair the times we live in and if some of you would think for yourselves once in awhile you would see that. Fauxbox can spin it anyway they want to and it will still come out to what it is...randpaul grandstanding for the teaparty, not the GOP, but the teaparty, while wasting 13 hours babbling about Jane Fonda and plain ole folks eating dinner getting taken out by Obama along with his possible opponents campaigning is a joke. It was a hollywood joke and only ended to go run to the toilet. I hope he got his answer clearly in big letters so he could understand it. Terrorist live among us, if the President now, or 4 years (Jan 17) from now has to protect the American people by taking out some terrorist whether they be foreign or domestic then you damn right I don't have a problem with him taking them out. Get with the times. I don't care if they are so called American citizen, once they go over to the enemy and plot against our country and fellow citizens they deserve no rights. Is rush/beck and the fauxbox talking heads telling you all President Obama's sitting in the Oval Office picking people to send a drone after. Get real, how pathetic to think anyone would really believe that. Don't you people know how the government works? Maybe you can read the letter on grandrand's website and see if you understand the intent of the policy. Jeeze, whitehair, out of all the teabagging lemmings posting hate, gloom and doom on here, I would think that you could get it. There is a lot out there not known to us and if OUR PRSIDENT wants to ensure we are safe at home than I am all for it. That is HIS job. But by all means, continue to stress yourselves out and spread that frightwing bullshit, it won't change anything. Unless your parties warm up to Christie you don't stand a chance in the next election whether it be Hillary or Biden. Glad our party isn't divided. It doesn't win elections. So here read it on grandrand's site.
We won't forget

I'm not going to get caught up in your little game of answering a 150 question copy and paste.
I made THREE statements that you took all day to NOT answer and dig up a copy and paste.
You are the same as the rest of the idiots and NOME OF YOU CAN PROVE ANYTHING I SAID AS WRONG!!!
But to you idiots, copy and pasting what someone else out together is debating what I said??
And you wonder why you're losing elections and why republicans have the lowest approval ratings.
Keep on trying Shortbus Sybil!

And to think that congress and you fell for this! This was not a victory - this was a cop-out. Even if Holder was telling the truth - which he is not - what makes you think one can hold a president accountable when he has yet to account for all the other laws he has broken?
Paul made his point - but failed to get agreement. If a person is sitting in his living room with his family - he can lawfully be droned according to Holders letter. All Osama has to do is define the proposed dead man as a combatant. It doesn't matter what your definition of a non-combatant is - i guarantee yours will be the incorrect definition. home land anti-security trumps supreme court rulings.
Remember the words of americas first black president???'it depends upon what the definition of the word "is" is....'
