The President Breaks the Law

If you're the President, you're not supposed to decide when to uphold the constition and when not to.

And frankly, if Clinton got impeached for lying about getting head, I think using illegal wiretaps is a fucking NO-BRAINER.

The Right Wing Retort: It's legal to do illegal things if you think they should be legal.

Sorry, doesn't work that way. And for the record, since when did it become goddamn gospel that when two sides debate, the debate is always equal? There is a qualitative differences between certain arguments. Simply making an argument (it's ok to break the law) is not the same thing as being correct (breaking the law is especially wrong for the President of the United States.)
