A stunning report in the New York Times depicted President Obama poring over the equivalent of terrorist baseball cards, deciding who on a “kill list” would be targeted for elimination by drone attack. The revelations — as well as those in Daniel Klaidman’s recent book — sparked public outrage and calls for congressional inquiry.

So I have a Tea Party friend on facebook who wanted a liberals opinion on why people are not upset about this.
Some interesting points were brought up about LBJ choosing bombing targets and Truman and his choice of bombing Japan and letting politicians decide this.
Others think this is an abuse of presidential power.
I think it's just political rhetoric during an election year. At least Obama's not as pansy as Clinton and Carter were for a "liberal" president who pretty much held on to many of the Bush administration policies.
