    Legal commentators have almost universally found the charges against Governor Perry to be without merit. A good analysis of why can be found here:

    “Golf – it’s the NEW Benghazi!”

    Benghazi is undoubtedly the worse blot on the administration, but there is a connection between the two items. As commentators have repeatedly said, it is not the fact that the President golfs that is the problem. Rather, the issue is that the President seems to be semi-retired, having mentally checked himself out of the duties of the office. The administration’s inept, dishonest, and politicized handling of Benghazi and its aftermath partially derives from that disengagement.

    “Yes, frank conversation is needed, but it must be respectful and sincere.”

    I absolutely agree.

    “al Qaeda beheaded Daniel Stern, bombed civilian targets, and regularly killed children. Why would they think ISIL is evil for doing the same?”

    Well put.

    “One of those figures should be a democrat since Axelrod, the New York Times and other groups found the indictment to be equally superfluous and without merit. How inconvenient for Jones”

    True. Also, the lawsuit against Obama only seeks to defend the Constitutional principle of Separation of Powers. If Republicans prevail in that suit President Obama will not face jail time and will lose none of his lawful executive powers or privileges. It is the least disruptive means of challenging the President’s destabilizing executive overreaches, and the GOP should be praised for the restraint of their response to the dangerous precedent the President would set for our country.

    “Vetoing a funding bill to prevent an investigation of your activities is OK in your book?”

    That’s not what happened, as even a local left-leaning news source acknowledges:

    “How about a frank talk about the risks of living the thug life?
    If you steal stuff, intimidate store owners and attack police officers, then bad stuff might happen to you.”

    Regardless of how the facts ultimately come out in this matter this would be a good conversation to have – provided that it could reach those most in need of it.

    It is increasingly apparent that the President has mentally checked himself out of the responsibilities of his office.

    Either the cartoonist has a very poor understanding of American law or he is more interested in bashing Republicans than in intellectual honestly. The Republican lawsuit against the President seeks to vindicate our Constitutional principle of Separation of Powers in the least disruptive manner possible. If it succeeds the President will not go to jail and will still be able to exercise his lawful executive authority. Also, it is based upon a meritorious argument, whereas legal scholars broadly condemn the charges against Governor Perry as a misuse of legal process for political ends.

    “i think all the DA apologists should be required to watch all of the videos of that woman.”

    Also, “Perry is a jerk” is not really a defense of an abuse of legal process that has been broadly condemned by legal scholars.
