Taking into account the number of mass murders and unpatriotic rhetoric and actions by these unpatriotic right-wing tea-baggers I am all for President Obama being able to send a Drone to take out these enemies of the State.‘We the People’ re-elected President Obama in a landslide so that he could use his mandate to follow through on whatever he sees fit to do to continue to protect this nation from terrorist and kill any bastard (right-wing nut or not) just like how he killed Osama bin Laden.
We the people think you need some help! This is not a dictatorship, we have laws and courts and due process, come on dude, this is right in the Obama wheelhouse! Now all of sudden he is king and messiah? The Unpatriotic one appears to be you and those of your ilk.

Nope. But that's the typical stupidity I'd expect from an Obama-hater.

Coming from an old school conservative, it is sad to say that currently it is the GOP that is doing the greater harm to the US...

OH, you and that other dimwit liberal, the Professor, pay more attention to the spelling and grammar versus the message. A great way to get some attention without really having a point!

Woody, 7.9% unemployment, 49 million Americans on Food stamps, gas prices at record highs and almost doubled since 2008. You have a President who goes for months without talking to Congress, and when confronted with a crisis, or his failures, blames everyone else! You would have to give me the definition of "Old School Conservatives" but right now, the radical left wing running this country is doing much more harm than good!

it was the democratic party that pulled us out of the mess, remember. after historic job losses we are back to where we were, plus some...in 4 short years...

nice try, but we know what happened, and then there is the social issue where the radical far right of the GOP is trying to send us back to the stone age....jeez, their #2 guy in teh last cycle openly stated he wanted to turn the US into a theocracy! WTF happened to the GOP?!?!

Interesting concept. Tell me, how is your Mandarin Chinese language ability these days? You're a lot closer to China than we are, and they need space for their billions of people.
Like Tibet, Pakistan could just be another province of China someday. I doubt India would object.
How's that for the fruits of arrogance?
Well,i am not a Pakistani,but for sure the relationship between china and pakistan is very strong and at its best.

Presidents are unable to hand out anything much to anyone. All spending bills go through the House, obviously.

You seem to be deluded...
