what does he have to answer for when he is doing exactly what congress authorized him to do...kill terrorists...

don't tell me you're a bleeding heart that wants us to capture them nicely and gently ask them to go to trial if it doesn't inconvenience them too much, huh?

i knew you were an old softie, Ray, i just thought it was all in your head where you were soft...

ReTHUGlicans hate poor people, love 'security' agencies and the military. More proof that they're fascists who should be wearing jackboots.

Heil, Reagan!

A white president who exercises authority may be a strong leader. But if he is black, he's "arrogant".

Ray is a hypocrite who'd be whooping it up if Bush, McCain, or Romney were killing people with drones.

The race card is getting old. My hatred of him has nothing to do with the color of his skin. He is not exercising authority, he is arrogant and abuses his power. Period!

Explain your position, and not the one where you're standing on your head.
Your generalities are not worth the swastikas they are printed on.

But these things ae happening under Dem control of Washington. You know, those oh golly innocent Dems. New years eve they passed NDAA and all the increases of surveillance and emasculation of citizens the last several years. Its a true story. All of these things we are/were assured will never be used or abuses to us or friends. Oh golly.....RINOS/NEO CONS/NEO LIB PROGRESSIVES....all traitors and we will get our just desserts.

Give me a reason why I should have a "discussion" with someone who calls the president an SOB. You can start with some supportable detail behind your accusations toward Obama.

1. Dems don't "control Washington."

2. Dems aren't much better than reTHUGs, anyway.

3.'Bagger buffoons tend to blame only Dems while smiling and swallowing anything the reTHUGs do. Which makes you hypocrites.

4. For a "traitor," look in the mirror, boy.

Try making that argument to all your 'bagger friends. They're the ones most likely to engage in insulting, childish behavior here.

Liberals called Bush far worse names and that was ok

I named him oslama the economy slayer when he was a junior senator and was part of a lawsuit against Citybank

When oslama a billary were battling for the nomination I named him Bush with a paint job ( no reference to skin color)

I predicted that if oslama won this's would be come fact

GITMO would not close
The wars will not end and we will be fighting in more countries
The Bush patriot act will live on and become far worse
More innocent will die from drones
Oslama will give more money to the corporations than Bush did
The economy will get worse
Their will be less transparency in the Whitehouse
He will turn the entire world against the USA

Now all of these things were exact opposite from what he promised but they all turned out to be true

The country was tired of Bush so they just painted one of the puppets liberal and he was elected.......

As it turned out he is far worse than Bush........ The most hated US president by the world in the history of the USA

But just in case, boy...the weapons are being bought in record numbers, boy. For defense from you boys.

First of all, stick your sophomoric play on words with Obama's name up your shaft. The rest of your diatribe is just plain lies and assorted bullshit.
