"*gasp* How dare the Obama campaign ask local law makers to uphold the law! Why.. that's unAmerican! We can't have these "truth squads" roaming the streets, and charging people who are printing lies with libel. We may as well be Communist Russia at this point. Its a good thing there is a candidate running for office who just will not stand for liars being held accountable for their lies!".Another simply said
"Proverbs 19:9. Seems pretty clear cut to me..."(Proverbs 19:9 reads " A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish".)
Please keep in mind that these friends of mine are not fringy wackos. They do not attend protest rallies or belong to left-wing organizations. They are not starry-eyed college kids. These folks are average, property-owning, job-holding, educated, child-rearing Americans.
Based on their responses, I'd guess that the public is solidly behind Obama's call for government officials to use the power of the State against people who are deemed by them to be lying about Obama.
only until it goes against them...then watch them scream and yell.
Legal action by a prosecutor for non-adherance to partisan talking points warranted a trip to the concentration camps in Nazi Germany for a breech of ‘political justice’.

Ask your Proverbs-quoting friends to come up with one supporting Obama killing off babies that survive abortion attempts.
Let’s see them come up with a Proverb for THAT one.
You can’t be serious-
11 If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;
12 If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?
They are, however, assholes.
