    WMD’s, I knew dead people, who got that way because a deserter from the National Guard wanted to look “tough”, and wear a flight suit again.

    Um……what? Are you still babbling about 10 years ago?

    Ok then I’m going back a little further…..

    You must be a member of the Party of Slavery, aka the Democrat Party. Remember?

    Another cartoon driving wedges and lowering the bar on intelligent discourse. I like many of Mr. McCoy’s cartoons, but this one is not only childish, for those who lost friends in the Pentagon on 9/11/2001 might find it painful. I know liberals who think Bush allowed 9/11 to happen in order to increase his power and conserves who think we allowed Pearl Harbor to be attacked by Japan to justify going to war. Extremists are guiding the conversation and we are being ripped apart in the middle. How does this make us the United States of America?

    We never “kidnapped and tortured” American citizens. But I guess it’s okay to blow them up without due process.

    The cartoon is referring to Obama making it possible for the president ALONE to order a drone strike on any U.S citizen in a foreign country if he decides ALONE in his own mind that they are a terrorist.

    If he can kill Americans outside of the U.S.A. without due process because he believes they are an immediate threat (or sorta kinda of an immediate threat), without any recourse to Congress or any US Court of law, that means he is assuming the powers of a dictator/tyrant. How long before he says that he needs to do drone strikes inside the US on US citizens without any due process?

    Great example of POTUS’s true vocabulary when there’s no teleprompter around.

    Thank you Troll. Yours is the first comment that makes good sense!

    @LingeeWhiz

    Thank you Lingee, I believe you are right about the core message, but the tone in which it is delivered is what I criticized.
    ^
    It is fascinating how candidates running against incumbent Presidents criticize the abuses of power each executive strives to hold, but upon becoming president, fights just as energetically to retain those “abusive” powers. Obama spoke so strongly against the Patriot Act and other Bush era policies but has embraced them firmly now that HE is president.
    ^
    No one party is going to hold the presidency forever, and just as Geo. Washington set the standard for how a president should behave by stepping down from power, Mr. Obama should set the standard he will want future presidents to follow.
    ^
    Drone strikes without some form of due process is as wrong as a police officers shooting offenders on the street without trying to arrest them. If a target is an imminent threat, like a bank robber pointing a gun, then a drone strike is justified, just as a policeman has the right and duty to shoot the bank robber in my example. But we are a nation of laws and while our enemies do not fight by the rules of the Geneva Convention, we must have a set of standards to which we will adhere with honor.
    That which you do to others, you give other permission to do to you.

    “That party you speak of was for states’ rights over the federal government’s rights.”#

    States’ Rights! I’m sure that’s what it was, and not the fact that millions of “non-white” humans were being held in abject slavery by white plantation owners, no, not that, why those Lily White plantation owners were just defending the “purity” of the white race, that’s all. Just one fine example of those glorious States’ Rights, right? Of course, States’ rights, that’s what the Civil War was all about, sure. A State’s right to import forcibly abducted, unwilling humans from Africa, whip and brutalize those human beings to break their spirit and make them work for no pay, food or clothing, and mostly just for the pleasure of brutalizing them. That’s another really wonderful example of States rights. Let’s all hail States Rights!! The right of a State, any State, to base its entire economic structure on human misery. Great States’ right that one. Just gotta go fight to maintain that right against those Yankee oppressors!

    Da, Comrade. And pretending it’s legal and constitutional to drone-strike American citizens makes purging those unfriendly to the administration just that much easier, no? Welcome to USSA, comrades! What a country!
