    ... do you wash your hands extra thoroughly at night to get the blood of the innocent men, women and children he bombs off your hands? Keep putting killers and thieves in office, folks, you're doing a great job!

    I know, I know, Bush and others did it too, so it makes it okay, right?

    Personally, I sleep just fine at night. You vote for the best option you have, then you work to keep them honest. In '08 and '12, that was Obama. In '04, I voted for Bush. We'll see what '16 holds.

    Well, keep voting(sanctioning the actions of) for the best option and then watching that option kill innocent people, among other evils.

    I sleep fine at night. Obama is a good President who, if he accomplishes 1/2 of his 2nd term goals or some points on his plan to curtail gun violence will edge into greatness.

    Quite happy with my selection at the polls and will be happier when he appoints new SC justices. Hopefully Scalia will retire and we can replace it with something more enlightened like a burned out buld.

    Good point. Hard to keep the Executive Branch honest once it is already in office. Probably something you should tend to beforehand.

    IMHO - War should be avoided, but not at ALL costs. We really had no choice but to go after Bin Laden and he was in Afghanistan. They had a chance to protect their people by turning him over. They opted to shelter him and many of their people paid the price. How many MORE innocent people die (in America) if you do not create a deterent or punish the guilty?

    Not a perfect solution - but we don't live in a perfect world.
