    Good for the Italians, at least somebody still respects rule of law. If only Americans had the same courage to put people like Bush on trial for their crimes.

    That's debatable, he stabilised things, but perhaps there are things he could have done better. He was better then the alternative that I will say.

    Your emotionality about the subject is obvious, but it's a little more complex then that.

    To be absolutely fair, Obama did get his stimulus and Health Care passed which was meant to help along with financial regulation. I fail to see what Republicans blocked that would have fixed everything magically, much as I think they blocked many things that they did for the sake of it.

    I'm kind of surprised that he's being criminally prosecuted while still in office. Then again, I'm not the most proficient legal mind when it comes to global governmental issues, but I thought a country's president had to be impeached or otherwise be removed from office before criminal charges could be levied. Apparently that's not true, but to those who are proficient in matters of Italian law, if he is convicted is he automatically removed from office?

    I agree-he's a horn dog with better taste in women-er girls-than Clinton

    back in the good old days our leaders were the pride of the world-Kennedy not only had the best looking first lady in history he also was getting some world class tail in Marilyn Monroe

    fast forward 30 years later and look at America's decline

    a first lady with the legs of the Budweiser Draft team and mistresses that would gag a buzzard

    I would imagine being who he is, if he's found guilty, he'll be removed from office, but his sentence commuted.

    But something tells me he'll be out of office before this happens.

    If I was Italian, I'd want him gone yesterday.

    Thanks! I've not read anything good about the guy, but the Italians keep electing him. Maybe his friend Mubarak gave him some helpful re-election tips! lol

    I think you're comparison once again is a little off here J-Mac.
    Under Italian law, there would't've been a problem if he didn't pay her, the age of consent is 14, but you have to be over 18 to be a prostitute.
