    That’s the consequences of voting a SECOND time for this narcissist in chief.

    Canadians… ? I’m not so sure.
    “PLEASE explain…”
    No I can’t. Of course just pulling out at the beginning of his term would have been political suicide for Obama. That, the drones and taking out bin Laden was what made his re-election possible… oh yeah and Romney is a Mormon; that helped too.

    But I was against the invasion in the first place. If we gone after the people responsible the way it finally worked with bin Laden and had spent all the money the invasion has cost us on (American made) “trinkets” (I mean small useful products) and food, and just dumped it all in random places all over Afghanistan, we would be much better off. I doubt the Taliban government could have withstood $85,000,000,000 worth of trinkets a year. As for training terrorists, has that stopped with the invasion? And of course Irak was dumb beyond words. Was that despot abusing his people? And how many died as a result of the invasion (not just Americans and Canadians…) And how much better off are the people of both of these countries? Getting to vote does not mean your have a democracy. But you probably know all that.

    It is interesting that a man who suppoerts such radically liberal social policies could be the one to make ‘Skynet’ a reality.

    How about “The Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. military thinks he has the right to authorize military strikes against enemy combatants plotting attacks against the United States.”

    Red Green? Is that idiot still alive? And CANDORVILLE is one of the best strips out there today, along with TOM, TOM THE DANCING BUG and THIS MODERN WORLD. And although, CANDORVILLE isn’t exclusively political in its daily presentation, when it is its message is quite trenchant. And deservedly so.

    Candorville boldly goes where Doonesbury dares not go. Or ever will.

    Like a 15 year old kid whose sin was to be the son of an alleged but unproven “terrorist”?

    “Radically liberal social policies”? Please name even one that Obama actually supported. Single-payer health care? Nope, he killed that one right quick, replacing it with a system that guarantees private insurance companies will continue to siphon away 20-some percent of each health-care dollar on administration (that is, attempting to deny claims) and executive salaries. Social security? Heck, he’s in the forefront of people who want to gut the program (even though it’s self-funding and contributes not one dollar to the deficit). The Bill of Rights? He’s been indistinguishable from Dubya in his assault on our Constitutional protections.

    Oh, right, the gay marriage thing… which he had to be dragged, kicking and screaming, into accepting. Making a speech cautiously supporting something that (according to polls) is already supported by a substantial majority of the public is not exactly “liberal.” In fact, a more accurate word for it might be… conservative.

    Which all makes perfect sense, when you recall who Mr. Obama has repeatedly expressed his admiration for: Ronald Reagan.

    Only overseas.

    We have swat teams and gunships for local.

    Get used to it, Lemont. The future rarely comes on schedule.

    1984 was a lot more like “2001” than “1984,” but 2001 turned out to be much more like “1984” than “2001.”

    That’s it? Like “Oh he’s just killing the bad ones, so it’s OK”. God, if this was Bush I don’t even want to think of the outcries.

    And prior to Obama, most people blamed Republicans for overspending in Iraq and Afghanistan and waging a war for oil. … yet they are still over there and the voices crying for their return? crickets

    I do believe there was justification for going. I don’t believe there is justification for staying. Bring them home. Stop the bleeding. Stop the spending.

    When the guy moved to Kuwait and became a bigshot member of Al Quaeda he kinda reneged on his citizenship. The fact that teabangers are taking up his cause, only makes Awlaki’s story more ridiculous. He deserved to get crushed. Just ask Giuliani.

    If we can’t use drones to protect innocent US citizens from dangerous us citizens then Lincoln should not have used the Union Army to protect the North and slaves from those fine outstanding confederates american citizens.
