#1 Oddly, there has never been any acknowledgment by the administration that Obama adopted the policies of his predecessor that he had once damned, much less that in the case of drone assassinations he far exceeded them
Not at all "odd" when you consider these were neither the policies of Bush or Obama, but those of a faceless, runaway, three letter agency with a secret, unlimited budget.

#2 There is no hypocrisy in the pursuit of power. It's self rationalizing, self justifying. Such creatures have no shame. Hypocrisy is something those out of power talk about. Got to remember, regardless of the extent of voter fraud, a (literally) hell of a lot of people voted for power rather than truth.

#3 It truly makes you question the psychological make up of a man who can engage in such double talk and hypocrisy and still sleep at night. I guess that is a talent (or skill) most successful politicians possess; although despite his faults I found it quite lacking in our previous president, and admirably so I might add.
