    Re: Key Witnesses to Be Interviewed in Prosecutor Firings

    I have a little hypothetical story I'd like to tell.

    Obama fires all of the Bush appointees, and hires his own. Before the first day on the job, Obama/Biden directs them to a meeting. They then proceed to tell them all that their main focus will be to go after Republican as much as possible. Focus on them, and witch-hunt them down.

    And if any Democrat is in trouble in regards to the law, to do aything possible to see that nothing comes of it.

    Is that okay with you, because they serve at the pleasure of the President?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Yes,especially if those allegations are mostly politically motivated just like the accusations against Bush are. Obama is free to hire who he wants as prosecutors and he is free to fire them anytime he wants.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The Bush gang fired U.S. attorneys for being too zealous in prosecuting Repulicans or insufficiently zealous in prosecuting Democrats. They turned the entire U.S. justice system into a sledgehammer to crush its political opponents with. There is a legal term for that -- obstruction of justice. One of their victims was a Democratic governor who was convicted illegally. And anybody who doesn't get that it's just plain wrong to use the federal government to persecute its enemies has chunky peanut butter where their brains ought to be.

    Glad I could help!

    Even if they refuse to commit a crime for him?

    Yep.

    Politically, this is an inappropriate exercise of political power. But that's all it is. Criticize, scorn, cry, whatever, but it ain't improper and and it ain't illegal.

    Seriously, is this the distance you have to travel to argue with someone about this issue?

    I'm sorry, but was I obligated to answer the question? Obligated to answer a question where the correct answer is self-evident?

    And you're whining about a poster dodging a question with a self-evident answer that is quite necessarily meaningless?
