White House responds to 'Deport Piers Morgan' petition
politico ^ | 1/7 | dylan byers

Posted on 01/07/2013 7:38:39 PM PST by RummyChick

Breaking news during tonight's edition of Piers Morgan Tonight: On the heels of Morgan's fiery interview with Alex Jones, the man who started the petition to deport the CNN host, the White House addressed the petition.

The official White House statement, via spokesman Jay Carney:

The White House responds to all petitions that cross the threshold and we will respond to this one. In the meantime, it is worth remembering that the freedom of expression is a bedrock principle in our democracy."

The petition to deport Morgan has gained more than 100,000 signatures, well over the 25,000 required to warrant an official White House response.

now that I can breathe for a moment

I would like to remind Jay Carney that owning a gun is ALSO a bedrock of our democracy.

Right after the Amendment for Free Speech.

LOL at Jay Carney..OK so according to Carney, freedom of expression is allowed, yet the 2nd Amendment needs to be abolished

I have the good fortune of not knowing who Piers Morgan is except what I read here.

Eighteen years ago, while in France I came upon CNN's European channel and was shocked to learn that America had gone completely insane during my short absence. That's the image of America CNN gives the world on a daily basis. I have not watched them since.

And no, I don't need to watch it to know how bad it is. I just presume the worse and achieve the same result without the rise in blood pressure.

1. one he’s a foreigner so he should keep his yap shut on our constitution that permits him to flap his flaccid jaw in the first place.

2. we shouldn’t get rid of the amendment that we enshrined after kicking his ancestor’s asses for attempting to disarm the colonists so they couldn’t revolt.

3. we are a republic, not a democracy. apparently obama missed that in his constitutional studies class. maybe we need to start a petition to remove all elected officials who don’t understand what fom of government this country has established.

"Freedom to keep and bear arms is a bedrock principle of our republic."

Paraphrased, grammar corrected and form of government fixed Carney's words really start to work. I think I will make liberal use of that statement. lol

Have y'all sent your penny to Piers Morgan % CNN to contribute towards his one-way air fare to London?

Tape the penny to a recipe card-type, write an appropriate line of farewell to Piers and drop it in the mail.

Mine was sent last week. This is a continuing freep.

See my tag line.

well, accordign to the left, even though NOWHERE i nthe constitution does it mention so, the right to bear arms was only for the ‘militias’ so carney shoudl be asked if perhaps the ‘freedom of expression’ also was ONLY meant for peopel in the militias- and if he says no, then ask him to prove that it’s not only just for militia folks-

Piers Morgan is simply obnoxious. Impossible to listen to that show for more than five seconds.

IIRC, Morgan has an outstanding British warrant for wiretapping law violations, which is why he came to the US in the first place. I’d have no problem turning him back over to the Brits.

“The White House responds to all petitions that cross the threshold and we will respond to this one”

Have they responded to any others? I don’t recall a single one.

freedom of expression is allowed

As long as you aren't a member of the "terrorist" group known as the tea party patriots.

This administration is as dishonest as any other Stalinist liberals. Lie lie lie.
