MattStafford: somedude210: so you want him to confess to having these powers given to him that you don't know if he's used or not? Because this isn't grounds for impeachment? Dude just admitted he can kill people at will, by law, I think that's treason right there. We should totally impeach his ass for it!Um, what? I'm fairly confident explaining the what the provisions in a law allow him to do is not an impeachable offense. Are you serious on this?somedude210: and tell us what? Republicans are bad douchenozzels that sidelined him into taking the lesser of two evils because they want to see him hung (some of them, literally)? We already know this. We knew when they put this provision in that the whole thing was a ploy to get him to veto it and look soft on terrorism during an electionHe needs to tell the people what the lesser of those two evils was, which he refuses to do. It is a huge difference between saying "republicans used politics to make me sign something I didn't want to" and "republicans used politics to make me allow assassination of US citizens without trial".
Infernalist: Aar1012: So is Obama an empty suit this week or is he the DNC-Oberst-Gruppenführer-in-Chief this week?It's kinda weird. They're mad at him for being a dictator-in-hiding AND they're mad that he's not subverting their Congressional powers by modifying existing law just 'because' they think he should. At the same time.
somedude210: In fact the WH has stated that they don't intend to ever use it on US citizens on US soil.
somedude210: BillCo: Dear Angry Fantasy in My Head,Please defend the President's position that he can kill U.S. citizens inside our borders without due process.Sincerely,Someone who doesn't understand how rational, complex thinking worksWhat about us Obama supporters who agree with Paul? That there needs to be legislation that prevents such things from ever being things? Its a job for congress to make sure Obama and whoever succeeds him to never use drones or Billy Joel in this manner.
