Trying to block King Barack's CIA nominee until the drone strike policy is clarified. Been speaking about 2 hours now, changing subjects every 2-3 minutes. I guess he'll have to go pee sooner or later.

Better than those fake filibusters...

Someone get that man a phonebook.

It's not going to stop the vote...but fun nonetheless. I mean...nothing else is getting done in the Senate.

So libs are for shooting Americans with drones? Or cannot say anything positive about a Pub?

Or, is it the ole, "anything Obama does is okay with me" deal? Any Dem lawmakers upset with it?

This filibuster just went bipartisan. Sen. Ron Wyden, a Democrat from Oregon is now taking over the filibuster.

Rand Paul should read the constitution during his filibuster. It seems as though King Barack and the majority of our leaders in DC never have.

I'm loving it. People are starting to realize that the United States really is becoming a totalitarian state withe the CIA mafia at the helm.

I'm not ok with drone warfare on American citizens.

Glad you are starting to stick up for the rights of citizens...your HRC sticker is in the mail

Scenario: An American citizen is discovered preparing an attack on something inside the US. In order to prevent an attack, a drone is used instead of ground forces for some reason. Would you give Obama "a pass" on that if he didn't order the attack? Or call him a spineless liberal?

This is why there is not a definitive "no" - because we want to let everyone know that you are not going to get a lot of extra time by using an American citizen to do your dirty work.

Does it suck? Yes. Do I like it? Not Really. But saying something completely negative when asked about this would be unethical.
