I'm pointing out that the guy who is currently complaining about it, indeed he claims to have been "banging the drum against this longer and harder than anybody else on this board" is Direckshun. It looked like you didn't bother to read the thread and just assumed this was a case of right wingers reacting to perfectly reasonable Obama administration action. It turns out you were wrong on both counts.
I said the right-wingers would have to twist themselves into pretzels to bitch about this because this is normally the type of thing right-wingers cheer--kicking terrorist ass wherever they may be (that changed when Obama came to town).
Direckshun, "the guy currently currently complaining about it," doesn't need to twist--his position has been steady all along. I don't agree with Direckshun on this, but he's not being a hypocrite--as many on the right are.
