However, in the interest of being "fair and balanced" I do admit there are two difficult issues for the President.
One is that the Drone attacks do cause civilian damage and loss of lives. What are the conditions underwhich the Drone attacks should be curtailed?
Why should the US continue to be in force in Afganistan, and what is the benefit of the agreement signed with Mr. Karzai?
Here's where I would attack Obama:
1. A massive ponzi scheme has wrecked our economy. What are the results of your investigation into the causes? Who is responsible? Who has your justice department indicted? The derivatives market is still going strong. Our capital system is still being run like a casino. Why haven't you done anything about it?
2. What will take place in Afghanistan between now and the Summer of 1914 that makes staying there two more years worth it, while we watch more of our troops killed every day? If there will be no difference, why don't we get out now? Who should be the last to die in this pointless war? Why should we continue to spend billions on nation building in Afghanistan, when we know from history that it will fail?
3. As a Senator, and when campaigning for your first term, you spoke up against the Patriot Act and said you would work to reform it and add numerous oversights. Instead, you simply signed off on its re-authorization stating the we should trust the Justice Department to implement some oversight.
