From the annual NRA convention (where Glenn Beck was the headline speaker):
Last month, Paul conducted a nearly 13-hour filibuster on the Senate floor after the Obama Administration said in a letter that it was theoretically possible for President Obama to authorize a lethal drone strike on an American citizen under “extraordinary circumstances.” The administration subsequently clarified that they did not believe the president had the authority to “use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat.”
Paul said that the question of an “imminent threat” was the pivotal one when considering drone policy.
“Here’s the distinction — I have never argued against any technology being used against having an imminent threat an act of crime going on,” Paul said. “If someone comes out of a liquor store with a weapon and $50 in cash, I don’t care if a Drone kills him or a policeman kills him, but it’s different if they want to come fly over your hot tub, or your yard just because they want to do surveillance on everyone, and they want to watch your activities.”
He doesn’t just like to decide what rapes are ‘legitimate’, he also hates student loans that aren’t completely privatized or free money to corporations.
Wow, who knew brother had it in him?
Barry O, you know you’re my boy. But you have the House, the Senate, and a mandate behind you. Perhaps this video may come in handy in snapping your man Rahm Emmanuel back into shape:
