Obama: "L'Etat et La Loi, C'est Moi"

Add this to the pile of evidence that to Obama, the rule of law is personal, not business.

Many liberals don't just want to defeat conservatives at the polls, they want to send them to jail. Toward that end, they have sometimes tried to criminalize what are essentially policy differences. President Obama hinted at another step in that direction when he said today that he is open to the idea of bringing criminal charges against the Justice Department lawyers who wrote opinions to the effect that waterboarding and other harsh interrogation methods could legally be used on al Qaeda detainees. ..

The idea of prosecuting a lawyer because a wrote a legal analysis with which the current Attorney General disagrees is so outrageous that I can't believe it would be seriously considered

--Powerline, quoted by Sykes.

Same as if VanHollen decided to criminally prosecute Lautenschlager for her notorious 'cranberry' thoughts.
