    I don't really take much exception to that since it was said in the heat of the moment under intense questioning of his authority as commander in chief where the Patriot Act was concerned.
    That kind of thought process leads to disregarding the constitution in order to further ones goals imo.

    I don't believe any American should ever consider the constitution "just a goddamned piece of paper." PERIOD.

    I don't think any human being should be crucified for his words in the heat of the moment.

    I don't think any American should say that in the heat of the moment.

    I wouldnt be "crucifying" him as you so put it, if he did not follow through with such measures.

    Just Being human is not a qualification for being a leader

    I'm sure if he had actually done anything blatantly unconstitutional, the courts would have made a ruling saying so. That's what they're there for.

    Being human is not something that suddenly gets trascnended when on takes the oath of office. I can only think of one person in history who pulled that off.

    The fact that the government can listen into my conversations at any given moment without my consent kinda.... well... bugs the **** out of me.

    One small step, right?
