    What he's done doesn't constitute(literally) treason. And just to poke the at the fire, I thought conservatives were the biggest Constitution junkies out there
    Sometimes you let the horse find it's own way to water instead of leading it there.

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Again, that doesn't matter. Liek I said, if some robs the store before I do, that doesn't make me innocent when I try to rob it. Armintage being first doesn't mean Cheney and company weren't trying to out her, didn't contribute to the outing. It is also likely that what Armitage did wasn't illegal, and what Cheney and company may have done would have been found illegal.

    But, you would have to think it through, listen and not see only through the partisan lense to understand.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
