I hate bringing up what many consider ancient history, but back when Slick Willie was being impeached we all joined together in a massive chorus of "We're a Nation of Laws," and "No President is Above the Law."
What happened? Sure, we got attacked by a bunch of terrorists but do we have to help them now? As I was led to believe, the objective of 'Atta and Co.' was to destroy our way of life. With the Patriot Act, the FEMA fiasco and a continual assault on the American Way by the media it doesn't seem like all that good an idea to allow a President--- ANY President to break the laws so many have died to uphold. While some might compare such actions to some sort of 'slippery slope,' it seems to me to be more like jumping into a black hole.
If he has broken the law, he needs to answer for it, just like you or I would.

("All governments and all civilizations fall... eventually. Our government is not immune.)
"No President is Above the Law." What happened?
Simple, no laws were broken.. the NSA can legally tap international calls, that falls within their jurisdiction. The story is being spun to make it appear it was domestic spying, but the very first 'breaking news' on this clearly stated they were international calls and e-mails.
The real law breakers are those who leak national secrets and those who falsely report the news.

(“Anybody who doesn’t appreciate what America has done and President Bush, let them go to hell”...)
The President has followed the law on this matter.

(Democrats are like roaches, hard to get rid of.>)
did you even read the original article? even the Times piece itself mentions how many justice department reviews took place during each use of this. what the hell do you want the president to do, ask the ACLU and the NYT their opinion on this matter before exercising this?
We are not particularly interested in whether or not "W" broke the law ~ we are confident he didn't.
On the other hand, we are very interested in bringing the New York Times and their running dog lackeys before the bar of justice and sending them all to prison for a very long time.

Someone broke the law alright - the Official Secrets Act.
They signed it. Promised, under penalty of a world of hurt dropping on their head, to uphold it, for America.
Then somebody didn't. They should go to jail.
