1. No, a GOOD president evolves based on knowledge and facts a candidate doesn't have.

 

I wouldn't want a river to remain still.
Nor a redwood seed to remain just a seed

a person grows and evolves

this isn't a stereotype like Ronald Reagan absolutist.

this is a real, living human being.

2. So Obama 'evolved' to the Right? That's de-evolving

Why is it always the Democrats rushing to the right? Why don't GOPers ever 'evolve' to the left?

5. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure- Benjamin Franklin (could be talking about drones)

 

what does right and left have to do with it.

It's correct to need drones (as the Oregon senator said)

and as Benjamin Franklin said "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"
He seems to have been okay with drones in this statement.
To keep a republic, one has to save it from terrorism and anarchy.

4. This is a flip/flop of principles rather than an evolution.

Obama knew what GWB was doing when he made that statement. This is who he presented himself to be to America.

10. Geez...I can't even watch the entire minute of that video there are so many bloopers...

 

-NDAA section 1021 provides for the indefinite detention of US citizens without trial or representation
-7400+ Occupiers arrested, zero wall streeters
-HR347 makes protesting where there are secret service present a federal crime with up to 10 years in prison...Obama assigns permanent SS protection to himself and W Bush
-FBI and DHS have been spying upon Occupy from the beginning, and lied about having done so
-DHS makes police agencies into tentacles via the iWatch program
-DHS are supplying police and sheriff agencies with gear still in current use by the military, sherrifs with armored vehicles
-FISA was just signed into another five years of activity

I could go on

13. I think with today's news this post seems to be relevant again.

I posted this when the news was leaked that Holder's Justice department provided questionable legal reasoning for Obama to execute US Citizens without due process.
