"Covert drone strikes are one of Obama's key national security policies. He has already authorized 283 strikes in Pakistan, six times more than the number during President George W. Bush's eight years in office.

As a result, the number of estimated deaths from the Obama administration's drone strikes is more than four times what it was during the Bush administration -- somewhere between 1,494 and 2,618."

http://articles.cnn.com/2012-09-05/opinion/op...

"The indefinite military detention provision in the National Defense Authorization Act, passed by Congress with bipartisan support and signed into law by President Barack Obama last year, really should not surprise anyone.

Since the PATRIOT Act snuck through Congress, it seems politicians have been scheming new and more creative ways to deny American citizens pesky things like “due process” and “equal protection under law.”

The NDAA should be a fairly routine budget bill, passed yearly to allocate defense spending. But the most recent iteration of the law includes a provision allowing the military to arrest and detain anybody, anywhere, for any reason, for any length of time.

Let that soak in for a moment."

"Liberals had plenty to say about the moral and legal implications of torture, wiretapping and other tools that George W. Bush employed to fight the war on terror. But President Obama’s equally controversial escalation of drone strikes against al-Qaida and Taliban militants in Pakistan has been almost completely absent from presidential politics this year.

"Voices that may have been eager to jump on the issue four years ago are hesitant to criticize a Democratic president, one who has worked to erase the Republican Party’s longstanding national security advantage. Cavallaro put it this way:“It’s curious at least that many who have spoken out about suspect national security policy in the last administration have chosen not to do so in the past few years.”

The truth has no agenda and hitting me with those icons simply proves you have no interest in the truth, just another sheeple liberal spewing their one sided ideology.

An inbred repuke wouldn't know 'Truth" if it reached up and bit him in the hind end.

They have their own version of 'Truth".

You're right....a duopoly is much too confusing....better to have a monopoly
since it's easier on your simple mind. Obummer is beloved by his party, his elite supporters and the whore media that protects and exalts him as a deity. If Romney turns out to be a poor leader and executive then the opposite will be true, he will be finished, and good riddance to him. Clearly, you prefer either to worship at the feet of King Obama or to live in your own private dreamland. Good luck with THAT!

Hey, I'm not voting for Obama. No way. Everybody is all "he got Osama BinLaden" and "he saved car companies". Big deal. Mitt Romney did not get a chance to get Osama or save the car companies because Obama already did it, and that isn't fair.

I like Mitt Romney because he's for the working guy like me. I heard that 47% tape and that was a lie, that was made up by somebody who doesn't like him. I read about his draft dodging and that's a lie too because he was doing important missionary work in France in stead of fighting in Vietnam.

A lot of people don't know that Hawaii is a state (which is nothing to be ashamed of) but I am not sure that it was a state when Obama was born there.

I feel bad because I gave out halloween candy yesterday, but then saw this from Sean Hannity:

"Halloween is a liberal holiday because we're teaching our children to beg for something for free.… We're teaching kids to knock on other people's doors and ask for a handout."

OMG, I never thought of halloween like that. I was going to ask my mom for a new coffee pot this Christmas, but I don't want to be a liberal.

Sean Hannity is like, so much smarter than the rest of us, and he likes Romney so thats good enough for me.

The media is way nicer to Obama than Romney. They are totally biased. For example, yesterday, the guy on CNN kept calling Obama "President Obama".

Duh...He's not the president yet, you idiot!

Romney is smarter because he will give more money to rich people and that means more jobs for poor people. He will give rich people money that they need to open businesses here and then they will hire unemployed Americans.

It is called a "tinkle down economy" and you can read about it online somewhere.

You're such a great big hero, Bob, what wars did YOU fight in? Where are YOUR medals? Have you ever been subjected to the draft? Back then almost EVERYBODY tried to get out ---just ask Bill Clinton(at least you can ask him when he gets his 'thing' out of your mouth). Neither candidate served in the armed forces. Our tradition is to have a civilian leader, if you prefer a military one then you might try Cuba.

You make my point better than me...NDAA, with those provisions, sent up by John Mcain (shhh, He's a republican) and signed by Barry. Need I say more? Enjoy your surveillance state.

Romney IS a hero. He got 4 legal defferments from the draft and did I think a lot of good work in France during the last deferrment.

People don't realize that France can be a very dangerous place.

Romney may not have served, but he supported the draft while he was in France, so he is kind of a hero.

Romney said he would expand the drone war. For every supposed "bad guy" we kill, there's an average of 50 innocents killed as well. They use a "double tap" technique...fire a missle, wait 20 mins. After 1st responders, bystanders, etc show up...fire another missle. A real "mans" war. Way to win the hearts and minds.
I don't disagree with you on the perils of push-button drone wars - but your slamming Romney (??!) over it is bizarre.

It's bizarre when it's the Obama administration who are infatuated with drones, having undertaken approximately 300 drone strikes in Pakistan. "Some estimates put the number of civilian casualties as high as 800; the Bureau of Investigative Journalism in London says 176 children have been killed in Pakistan."

http://news.yahoo.com/obamas-drone-program-es...

It's bizarre the way the Obama administration gets a free pass from the media and the progressive left over these drone strikes - the same crowd that would be screaming at the top of their lungs if this were some other POTUS not named Obama bringing death from above down onto innocents' heads this way. I don't agree with Dennis Kucinich on much of anything - but he is certainly correct when he said,“Parties are always about supporting their own first, in everything. What you have is a new pseudo philosophy of national security which is devoid of constitutional underpinnings, sweeps aside international law and is morally depraved. There is no defense, there is no justification, there’s just no debate.”

What Romney has _actually_ said on the subject during the last presidential debate is,“we can’t kill our way out of this.” He gets it. The Obama administration does not. They are seized by the delusional notion they can slash military spending and still fully protect America's national security interests around the world with a bunch of video-gamers sitting in a basement at Nellis, without ever needing to be able to project force with boots on the ground ever again. Too messy ...

They're dangerously naive fools.

I don't think I'm alone in holding this view:
