    If a gang of robbers has been taking down bank after bank, do you grab a gun and take a ride with them in a fast car? Do you lend them money?

    Is there a compelling reason to trust this President when he is cheered on by known war criminals, when his goals match theirs, when his rhetoric echoes theirs?

      If you want to vote for people who make their policy decisions based on who else agrees with them, then do so.  

      I'd say that's a horrible way to make decisions about your policy positions, but you are more than welcome to focus on the "who" instead of the "what."

      It's an adhom argument, and it has no intenention of doing anything other than patting people on the back who agree, and shaming those who disagree.  

      Like I said, it's cute.  It's just not real useful.

        What outweighs the stink of the war criminals on this project?

        What has the President done that demonstrates that he can be trusted to be open with us about security issues, that brings faith that his judgements, when it comes to killing, are aligned with non-conservative values?
