Obama Administration: We Can Kill American Citizens Overseas Whenever We Want

Leave a comment

The Obama administration says they have the Constitutional authority to kill American citizens overseas if they think those Americans are in the process of planning attacks on American soil.  No courts; no due process.  And most Democrats don’t bat an eye in response – which is troubling news for our “democracy”.  An obvious question: Would those same Democrats have voiced their displeasure if President Bush said the exact same thing?  Absolutely they would have been.  But see – it’s okay since Obama is a Democrat.  What Obama says goes.  Even though those same Democrats spent years insulting Republicans by calling them mindless drones for accepting whatever Bush said just because.

For too many in this country, Party if more important than Principle.
