1} Ginsberg-The bucktooth hag from New Yawk.

2} Breyer-Dumb as a stump.

3} Sotomayor- Obama flunky and La Raza racist.

4} Kagan- Probably doesn't even know where she is due to severe liberal mental disorder.

The 4 were the 4 Liberal Justices who would have agreed with Obama!
This is what you get when Liberals have majority in the courts.
Justice would have never been served!

Thank you Texas

Rick Perry for President!

As usual you right-wingers are bliss in your stupidity and ignorance. Funny how all we hear from the right is their bland rhetoric about the constitution; and yet in a blatant case where the constitution specifically says that treaties are to be recognized as the law of the land, all we see is their blind racist-hatred for the Black President trumping the Constitution.
When a foreign government executes an American citizen without that person being given access to or protection by American officials, that government will point to Texas as the model of breaking treaties and the law.

I understand where the Obama adminstration is coming from. He is playing his part in the hopes that some sick individual will not take it out on an inocent American down in Mexico. At the sametime this dirt bag will get his cookies.

Our country should show we respect rules and take the high road.

This example of Texas taking the low road will have repercussions with American citizens in the future.

You clearly don't understand anything. Of course, Mexico is in opposition. They don't have a death penalty. Yet, the drug cartels have murdered how many thousand innocents?
Mexico has close to 30 consuls in the US, advising illegals how to break US laws.
What I will give them credit for, is their insistance that people in this administration, who were involved in Fast and Furious be turned over for prosecution in Mexico. To date, your sugar daddy, Bammy Mack and his lackey, Holder, have tried to shove this one under the rug.

What an arrogant b*stard, to try to tell the State of Texas to spare the life of a horrible piece of crap like that murderer. He is a President, not a King, and he cannot tell Rick Perry what to do with vile creatures like that killer. I wish he could have been beaten to death like that 16 year old he raped, and murdered.

Like with Panama, Libya, Yemen and Somalia?
You see, dummie, I've included a Bush 41 action. A Repub, ex CIA, son of a Nazi sympathizer, a skull and bones freak, and a former Carlyle Group director. Panama was a threat to CIA unfettered dope trade. That said, WTF is with Libya, Yemen and Somalia?
If you can defend Obungler on these missions, then, surely you are a member of the CFR.

That slime ball was an illegal alien. He had no rights under our Constitution. He should have been ut in a room, shackled to a wall. And then left with his victims' Armed Grandfathers.

Jerry, We have two terrorists that were going to bomb a U.S. recruiting station in custody. We don't want them tried in civilian court but Holder and Nepolatono won't give up and take them to Guantonomo. My point; Our government has captured and turned lose on US enemy combatants. They are walking among us. I don't have an exact number, but many.

Democrat Senator Patrick Leahy a Socialist piece of crap believes along with O`buma that American lives mean nothing when illegals murder, rape, and commit other crimes against U.S.Citizens. They both support the illegal invasion of America.,They should both be tried for treason..........

Thank God for Gov.Rick Perry, other Governor`s should take note with the way Texas deals with criminals both illegal and legal.
