The 13 hour Rand Paul filibuster was… well… tepid. Although he was standing up to the threat of the Federal Government’s refusal to rule out the use of drones against American citizens on American soil, he sounded more like a lawyer than the courageous politician he wanted to portray. The question isn’t “should they be used against citizens in extraordinary circumstances”… the question is “should they be used against citizens at all”.
The most depressing thing about the Obama administration is that it’s all about politics, even in the second term. Politics are clearly not working for the American people, and are all about dodging the hard questions. With the hard questions not being given the light of day, we can be sure that 99.9% of the time, the outcome will not serve the people.
