I'm a social libertarian, fiscal moderate, and defense hawk. For that reason, Obama gets a "favorable" rating from me, although that stunt last week on immigration was so brazenly political that I lost some respect for him. I agree with the policy, but not with the way that it was implemented or the manner in which it was done.
As far as my defense hawk side, I think that I know bad people when I see them, and I don't think that just talking with bad people is always the answer. If there is truth to this story, a firm response is imperative because they are just giving the free world the finger in the most blatant manner possible.
