Hillary and Obama lied for two weeks about a video starting a riot in Benghazi. The she told the parents of the dead we are going to get the guy who made the video when she knew the video had nothing to do with the terrorist attack. They just didn't want to call it a terrorist attack just like the 17 killed at fort hood was called work place violence

Actually, you people liking Putin was kinda tame compared to Palin, Alan West, Jindahl, Cruz- yeesh- too many to list!
You people didn't like Romney. For Chrissakes, HE'S A MORMON!!! He was just the guy chosen to do all the things you people have been told you want. He was going to do everything on the first day and then turn the country over to junior executives. That's business!
You people will never legitimately elect one of your own (Bush II proved that) until you can field one who also appeals to democrats and (real) independents, something you people are not even trying to do.
Romney's the moron? Did he claim to have visited 57 states and that Hawaii was in Asia too?

You people talk a good fight but I think you really put the *P* in ussies, as I have heard tell.
Oh, no...I think Obama puts the *P* in ussy...have you checked out his foreign policy (or lack thereof)?!?

Perry was booked and fingerprinted Tuesday at the same Travis County courthouse where a grand jury indicted him last week.

An arraignment is set for Friday, but Perry doesn't have to attend.

Perry is accused of abusing his power after vetoing state funds for public corruption prosecutors last year.

Perry has hired a team of high-powered lawyers to represent him, including two from Washington, D.C. And the head of Perry’s legal team is nationally known attorney Tony Buzbee, who is being paid $450 an hour by the State of Texas.

So what did Perry do that landed him in hot water? He used the apparatus of the government to strip the resources of an agency charged with ferreting out fraud and government corruption to further his personal agenda of removing Lehmberg from elected office. That’s undisputed. The question is, do Perry’s actions constitute the crimes of abuse of official capacity or coercion of a public servant under Texas law

Keep in mind, Perry could have followed the statutory procedure under Texas law that provides for the removal of DA’s for misconduct. But Perry didn’t avail himself of this. And in fact, after Perry’s veto, a petition was filed by a local lawyer to remove Lehmberg from office under this statute, but in December 2013 a Texas judge ruled against the application, noting that a single instance of intoxication does not rise to the level of “official misconduct.”

the question of whether Perry’s motivation in wanting Lehmberg out was her office’s investigation into a $3 billion scandal tied to the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas. Some of the people being investigated apparently have close ties to Perry.

Even top Democrats say this is a ridiculous charge. Perry has line item veto power and he used it! Austin is Democrat, we keep all our liberals in one place. They did the same thing to Kay Bailey Huchison and Tom Delay. All proved false. This is what they tried to do to Sarah Pallin. She would have been in millions of dollars of debt fighting phoney law suits

He's sure hired a high priced legal team to be so confident he will be exonerated.

When visiting Judge Bert Richardson took the bench he already knew it would not be the first day of the Perry trial.

"A waiver of arraignment has been filed and until the lawyers get here and I have a chance to speak with them we will not have a reset date. It will depend on my schedule and their schedule and the court's schedule," said Richardson.

Attorney David Botsford from Perry's legal team and Special Prosecutor Michael McCrum met with the judge in closed chambers. Then it was determined that there was more to the waiver then scheduling.

"A writ of habeas corpus will be filed early next week attacking the constitutionality of the prosecution of both counts of the indictment," said Botsford.

McCrum said the prosecution will prepare a response and he doesn't expect the judge will dismiss the case.

"I'm confident the law applies in this case and that the facts will bear out as sufficient to sustain a prosecution in this case," said McCrum.

"I believe these issues are complex. I do not believe that this court or any court that would address it would do it very quickly," he added.

After the defense files the motion the prosecution will have a chance to review it and respond. Then the judge will consider both sides and either dismiss the case or set a new date for arraignment.
