    It's interesting...in 2007, Romney was accusing the Democrats of using “defeatist” language on terrorism and the war in Iraq. Rudolph W. Giuliani was being even tougher, calling Democrats the “party of losers” who “refuse to admit the existence of Islamic terrorism.”

    Obama, on the other hand, was quietly promising that, when he became president, we would

    Obama may not have done everything he said he would do - but he's done this - and yet, Mitt Romney, when asked to grade him on foreign policy and terrorism, gave him an "F."

    What does that tell you?

    Thats why a lot of the Maureen Dowd Loons are dumping him and it's one of the things I applaud him for even though I make fun of his Drones, he's got that Killer Instinct, like Bush.

    According to the NYT he works on his hit list every Tuesday. Anything's possible, I'm predicting a new video game hits the market by Christmas. :bricks:

    Its cool to have a president that actually WANTS to kill terrorists

    Remember that failure?

    True, but I still find the whole thing a little macabre, not so much the use of drones per se but the whole scenario. And I bet there will be a video game, in fact I bet Vegas already has lines/odds/whatever, on Bam's List. Maybe we should call him BAM instead ;) I'm sure Romney will continue if he's elected.

    I don't think anyone is sure about anything that Romney thinks. Guy changes sides faster than a hot pillow on a humid night.

    The whole war is crap, but thats besides the point right now.

    How many more #2s can we kill? and who is the #1 now that Osama ordered the hit on Bin Laden?

    Obama is creating job openings in Al Qaeda, #1 and #2 positions are now hiring!

    This is part of his plan to reach across the aisle, he is supporting outsourcing, and republicans still hate it.

    Remember growing up they pounded in your head that Republicans were for lower taxes, small government and more national defense. Hindsight is 20/20 but I believe Obama has done a very good job. Especially in the area of places like Yemen where he acted proactively. I don't see how romney could improve in this area. I also think Obama has once and for all dispelled the notion of a leader who did not serve doing what needs to be done. Wish he would get us ouit of Afghanistan but I think that may be out of his control.

    Yeah OK, what ever you say

    Exclusive: Drones "inhumane", dead al Qaeda man's family says - Yahoo! News

    TRIPOLI (Reuters) - The brother of al Qaeda's second-in-command, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike, said Washington's use of the remote-controlled weapons is inhumane and makes a mockery of its claims to champion human rights.

    U.S. officials said on Tuesday that Libyan-born al Qaeda operative Abu Yahya al-Libi was killed by a drone strike in Pakistan, in what was described as a major blow to the militant group.
