But come swearing in day, they fell silent and Obama didn't lift a finger.

Unfortunately they forget their rightful howling about the Patriot Act, domestic spying, and the creation of the DHS silenced for good the second Obama was sworn in.

I never voted Obama but I had at least hoped these ridiculous programs would be gotten rid of... not expanded. I had hoped the cloud had some sort of silver lining, but it didn't.
I b****-slapped you before about this very topic.

Here, let me do it again.

There are also several examples of people from the left and right condemning Obama's drone policy. A win for selective reading right there.
