Rand Paul: I Donít Think Obama Will Kill Americans
TPM Livewire ^ | 03/06/2013 | Igor Bobic -

Posted on 03/06/2013 2:43:22 PM PST by Responsibility2nd

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), filibustering John Brennan's nomination to lead the CIA on Wednesday in objection to the Obama administration's policy on targeted drone killing, ceded that President Obama personally was not the issue.

"I frankly don't think he'll be killing people in their homes tonight," Paul said.

At stake, Paul explained, was the prospect of unchecked power afforded to the executive branch if clear rules governing lethal force within the United States are not established.

I think he will. I think he already has.

But I’m nobody.

How could 0bama ever do such a thing if he’s not responsible for or accountable for ANYTHING? I bet he wouldn’t release illegal aliens from detention centers, either!

I don't see Obama with the joystick in his hand -- hell, he has enough trouble pointing a shotgun in the right direction -- but I can see him watching Glenn Beck Or Rush Limbaugh and saying 'We have to do something about this guy' in a leading way to one of his stooges...

Watch the skies!

Check back around this summer Mr. Paul...
I'm betting the SHTF by August.

Funny, I have been wondering all day just how many breaths of O2 Rand has left after this move.

Yeah, we never thought that Daddy Bush would do it at Ruby Ridge, or that Clinton would do it at Waco either.

Just need to kill one to start the snowball rolling. Law abiding citizens will protest and then they will also be targets. It’s the end of the world as we knew it. But I feel fine.

Anyone who starts a sentence with “I don’t think..” probably doesn’t.

Why can’t we get a straight answer from Holder on this?

Won’t kill Americans? Not even if they’re “typical white people” or “people who bitterly cling to their guns and religion”? How about policemen who “behave stupidly” as did the Cambridge Police Dept a few years back? Or those who might wantonly,without just cause,kill his “son”,as George Zimmerman did?

It was like pulling Holder’s teeth to get an answer out of him.

In light of Holder’s testimony, it appears to me, Holder/Obama likes to have the option to even drone attack who they see as their political enemies.

Its a diplomatic statement and doesn’t mean much.

Its up to us to make sure that people know Obama will happily kill Americans.
