You assign so many things to the right wing. Shall I guess what you assign to them? Everything you don’t like. You’re like that Wall Street Government fool. Anyone that disagrees with him is a teabagger, with you they’re right wingers.
I take no issue with the drone attacks. I’m actually good with it. What I do take issue with is the left screaming about water boarding yet are fine with drone attacks.
I’m neither a right winger nor a Christian.
Waterboarding is torture and against international treaties, drone attacks are legitimate tools executing the "war on terror" implemented by the "terrible trio" Bush, Cheney & Rumsfeld who killed maimed and displaced hundreds of thousands of innocent people.

Here is another on the rightwing obstructionist troglodytes – the price we pay for health care! For those without health insurance, the costs are totally out of control. Consider the Connecticut woman who went to the hospital last year for chest pains only to find out it was a bad case of heartburn. She didn't have insurance, and Time reports that she got a bill for $21,000 --$1,000 for the ambulance ride,$3,000 for doctors and $17,000 for a three-hour -- yes, three-hour -- hospital stay. Had the effing GOPers obstructionists taken a little time out from hating Obama we could have put together a well working, well functioning and streamlined health care system! But noooo they rather throw their sissy fits! National Healthcare is a republican idea to begin with but when it comes from that wrong-colored guy in the white house it unacceptable!!!!!!!!!

Interesting comment, war on terror. Nearly 5,000 have been killed. How many of those were tied directly to our “war on terror”?

I’m perfectly fine with using drones to strike terrorist organizations. But, it’s gone beyond that. We’re now using drones as an assassination tool. Sometimes into sovereign nations such as Pakistan, a country our government refers to as ally. Pakistan objects to our invasion of their sovereign territory, we ignore their objections. What would the ramifications be if another nation sent a drone into our airspace?

The hypocrisy from the left has been objection to making a few terrorists uncomfortable and endorsing remote control assassination. A few outspoken people on the left have accused Obama of being a war criminal for the drone attacks.

You illustrate your lack of understanding very well. You blame the GOP for high healthcare costs? Do a bit of research on why our costs are so high.

Every administration over the past three decades has promised healthcare reform. Obamacare doesn’t address the high cost of healthcare.

I see you’re pulling out the race card again. I don’t care what color Obama is. Here’s a clue for you, he’s not really black. I do care about his destructive policies.

Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away. Your inability to learn facts and skills to apply them is spectacular!

How exactly does Obamacare address the high cost of medical care in the US? The costs will remain high because the root cause is still in place.
