Why do republicans blame democrats for continuing republican sponsored policies and legislation?

I know I disagree with the practice.

Does it take an act of congress to reverse some of these policies?

Then there are the special interest and too much money involved to reverse it.

I didn't mention anything about killing anyone in the U.S. with the use of drones.

States are "increasingly using unmanned aircraft systems in the United States, including deployments for law enforcement operations," according to the bill. There "is the potential for unmanned aircraft system technology to enable invasive and pervasive surveillance without adequate privacy protections."

In April, Brossart told U.S. News that he thought the SWAT team use of the drone was "definitely" illegal. Some estimates suggest that there may be as many as 30,000 unmanned drones operated in the United States by 2020 for uses such as wildfire containment and surveillance, law enforcement, and surveying.

So you wont have a problem when a Republican President kills any American citizen without due process who he deems a "terrorist" then?
"Every nation in every region now has a decision to make, either you are with us or you are with the terrorists."

Does that include us?

If an American is running with terrorist, he can die with them.

Why do teabaggers gain a "conscious" for terrorist?

Well I have two points to make about that:

First, we had an American president (George W. Bush) who killed Americans without due process… and second, due to the demographics, the implosion of the GOP and the right-wing fringe filling the void, I won’t see another republican president occupy the White House for the rest of my life.

These last 4 years have been great… these tea-bagger’s heads can’t stop spinning as they don’t know whether they’re coming or going, LOL. President Obama has them completely vexed and confused as they have to force themselves to dwell in an alternate reality in order to avoid the truth - that President Obama has successful protected this great nation all while killing more terrorist without lies and unnecessary wars. Pretty much an intelligent alternative that produce results unlike the failed policies from the previous administration.

They do not have to sign on to continue these policies and they can try to repeal the bills.

I dont think that the "public view" exception to spying on people would apply overhead, but some man in a dress might rule that you have no expectation of privacy from above. Yet if you video record police officers in public they might charge you with wiretapping.

Besides flight limitations.

The money used to operate a helocopter are enormous so when they do use them, there better be a good reason and efficient.

You're a liar.
After a line of questioning about cyber security and some sort of cyber ROTC idea from New York Democrat Kirsten Gillebrand, Lindsey Graham picked up where Ayotte left off, confirming the president only had one conversation with Panetta and Dempsey on 9/11 about the unfolding attack in Benghazi. Further, he found out no defense assets were launched to respond to the attack in real time. Visibly upset, Graham asked Dempsey:“is there a saying in the military, when you go in harm’s way, we’ve got your back?…Don’t you think that saying’s been undermined here?”

Graham question Panetta’s assertion that “the president of the United States was concerned about American lives,” saying he didn’t consider it a “credible statement” if the president never called to ask if the Americans on the ground in Benghazi were being helped or what was happening to them. Nevertheless, Graham trusts the same president and government to judiciously kill American citizens.
