Leave it to you when you are bested to blame it on semantics.

Here's another semantics trick.

Large and poorly-defined groups where the individuals have a broad range of opinions can't be hypocritical. The breadth and range of the opinions mean that there will always be individuals within that group with completely anti-thetical opinions and perspectives.

Individuals are hypocrites when they apply a philosophy or belief system inconsistently.

Small groups with well-defined goals can be hypocritical when they hold different people to different standards for reasons that are illogical.

But amorphous groups like "liberals" or "conservatives" or even "Republicans", "Libertarians" or "Democrats" cannot be hypocritical. Only individuals within those amorphous groups can be hypocritical.
Basically, all you're saying is that, because liberals don't 100% coordinate and speak with one oppositional voice against Barack Obama, liberals cannot be held to the standards of an ideological monolith. This is a fundamentally flawed assessment on your part because, even in the absence of a specific unified voice, liberals have routinely and persistently remained conspicuously silent (and monumentally hypocritical) in defiance of their past record of being in fact a unified voice against the policies of George W. Bush.

Your mental gymnasitics and ideological contortionism in defense of liberal hypocrisy and Barack Obama is not at all impressive.

In other words, killing civilians with drones is bad, but we don't have enough information to suggest that the Obama Administration should be held more accountable for its actions.

Regardless, he is correct and the evidence is in plain sight. It's to the point now it's sickening.

That's exactly right. That's why liberals on this thread attempted to derail in in typical deflectory fashion. They simply cannot accept the truth.

Its not true. Many progressives have called the Obama admin out on it. Many tv show hosts as well: Rachel Maddow, Chris Mathews, etc. including high profile progressives/democrats such as John Cusack et al.

If that is your interpretation, fine. I still gave you what you asked. I see you didn't look at everything or even the selected press coverage.
