Of course it came out as a double! Sorry.

"Sure, there are issues—with presidents, there are always issues—where he's dropped the ball (drones, Gitmo, drones). Those are serious issues. But right now, President Obama needs our help."

I think "dropping the ball" is an exceedingly poor characterization of drone strikes and the continued indefinite detention at Guantanomo. A better way would be to say "where he's killed innocent people or kept them locked them away in a legal limbo (Guantanomo, NDAA, assasination of american citizens, drone strikes on children gathering firewood, drone strikes on people trying to provide medical assistance to victims of drone strikes, drone strikes on those mourning the previous victims of drone strikes)." It's for those reasons that I'm not going to vote for Obama. Murderers don't need my help.

This could come out as a double comment, if it does, sorry. I think it was just eaten.
