Kiddo, excuses are like.... you know.

Now you moronic, idiotic Progressive. Since when is it a crime to defend someone?

People have the right to defend themselves in a court of law despite your cretin claims that somehow it is morally wrong!

Time to grow up, sonny.

The money was given as grants with Joe Biden in charge. States were not given the money outright, but had to apply for specific grants and had to agree with the stipulations.
Some states declined to apply for grants stating that the funds would run out in a year or two and there was no way to continue the program, etc after that time.
And many republican governors like Palin, Perry, and Brewer feigned to not take the Stimulus money(to fool their Tea Party faithful rabble) while all the time applying for more than their fair share of Stimulus funds before the deadline.

<quoted text>When asked whether the president had the authority to order any American killed within the borders of the United States at his whim, why did it take Obama two weeks to answer that question?
It's a simple answer. It takes less than 10 seconds. Anyone who has ever read the Constitution at least once in their life will know it:

"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation."

In short:
No person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.

Why did it take a (supposed) constitutional lawyer two weeks to discover this?

That is the problem. Obama doesn't even know what's written in the Constitution because he's never read it. But, why should he read it? He's been indoctrinated his entire life in the belief that it should be eliminated. There's no reason to learn something that isn't even relevant.
I remembers when Liberals falsely accused Bush of using drones to kill terrorists. That was a made up scandal! Liberals were screaming impeachment.

Now, strangely, Liberals applaud Obama for what they wanted to impeach Bush for.

See? Liberals are brain dead hypocrites.

B*llshyt....I suggest you check laws
Lerner’s lawyer, William W. Taylor, adamantly disagreed.“The law is clear that a witness does not waive her Fifth Amendment rights not to testify as to facts by asserting that she is innocent of the wrongdoing with which she is accused,” he wrote in an e-mail.
In an interview, Taylor said Lerner’s comments—which gave a thumbnail sketch of her division’s operation and the two investigations it has spurred in the offices of the Treasury inspector general and FBI — didn’t delve into the facts.“It simply said,‘This is what you guys accused me of, I’m not guilty of it.’”
http://news.yahoo.com/irs-official-fifth-amen...
ames Duane, a Fifth Amendment expert at Regent University, explained to New York magazine why Lerner was within her rights.(Duane made his comments after the hearing ended and before Issa made his announcement.)
“When [someone is] involuntarily summoned before grand jury or before legislative body, it is well settled that they have a right to make a ‘selective invocation,’ as it’s called, with respect to questions that they think might raise a meaningful risk of incriminating themselves,” Duane said.
He also believes that “even if Ms. Lerner had given answers to a few questions — five, ten, twenty questions — before she decided,‘That’s where I draw the line, I’m not answering any more questions,’ she would be able to do that as well.”
That theory will now get tested, since Issa indicated he may call Lerner back to testify again, without the ability to cite the Fifth Amendment.
Stan Brand, a former general counsel for the House of Representatives, told Politico that Lerner could have an issue if she waived her rights in prior appearances before Congress.
Prior to Lerner’s appearance, her attorney, William W. Taylor III, wrote to Issa and explained why his client was taking the Fifth Amendment.
Taylor said that prior claims by Issa that Lerner had provided misleading information to Congress on four occasions left his client without another option.
“She has not committed any crime or made any misrepresentation but under the circumstances she has no choice but to take this course,” Taylor said.
but not to worry, as I sure this will come up against a judge
"karma"
Face the facts. Lerner is taking the 5th. for one reason. She is guilty and she knows she is guilty. Do you know what the first step should be, fire her azz and quit paying her to sit on her azz and lie.

And why should you expect someone else to pay your bill?
Because he is a Liberal, and ALL Liberals are parasites of the government.

He cashes his other-people-tax-payers check and comes here to worship Obama and big government.

For low life parasite Liberals like him the solution is the government. He works never work hard abs save money in a Conservative created Health-Savings account to pay for his own stupidity.

Conservatives are responsible enough to save money for their own retirement, vacation, education and health care.

Liberals live off government handouts.

This is insanity in practice.

You need to stop throwing your dung and seeing if it sticks.

These were grants anyone could apply for and such comments like fair share is idiotic.
