47. I don't care if he was a bleeding heart liberal like me...
He's no more above the law than I am and it's obvious the way this entire thing was handled he was treated like he was above it.

The man has a long and well documented history of breaking the law. This isn't about political party. This is about someone who does what he wants and to hell with everyone else.

We have a rule of law in this country and if a president of the US can be impeached for lying about an affair then a VP should be held accountable for outing a covert operative, making sure Halliburton rakes in billions of dollars at the expense of thousands of lives and accidentally shooting a man in the face.

Most people would have been charged with negligence.

It's not the fact of them doing it to's the fact that these people continue to get away with blatant criminal activities and lying to the American people.

They don't play fair and haven't for a hell of a long time. I'm not an eye for an eye kind of person. I don't believe that. But they sure as hell should have to live to the same standards as the rest of us and those assholes set the bar when they impeached a president for lying about an affair that was no one's business.
