    Sigh-it finally got above freezing and a lot of snow melted and today back to teens and all that melted water turned to ice. Walking is a dangerous task.

    Give me a minute to plug that into my global warming model calculator to prove that global warming is causing the very thing you describe.

    It IS our business, as it goes against the moral character of the guy who leads the most powerful country on the planet. He gets held to a higher standard, like it or not! It also plays into the "Lead by Example"... Do you want a guy this this low level of moral character to be a role model for future generations?

    Let's not forget that he is Commander in Chief. He is in supreme command of the armed forces. As Commander in Chief, it is not unreasonable that he be held to the same standards as any officer in the military. Just look at how the military feels about adultery among its officers. If caught, there are consequences. Why wouldn't the Commander in Chief be held to the same standard?

    And, whether anyone feels that it's none of anyone's business what he does in his personal life... that's not an excuse to lie under oath. Sorry, those are the rules. When you are under oath, you have to tell the truth. A lawyer, of all people, should know that. You don't get to lie because you don't like the question.

    Believe it or not, I agree that his adultery is none of anyone's business. I thought the whole thing was ridiculous and an issue that should have only been between him and his wife. I absolutely thought it was the "right" using his adultery to stir-up a lynching. But once he was under oath, he, especially as an officer of the court, had a duty to tell the truth, however distasteful I might have found the questioning.

    This goes to character. Irrespective of the line of questioning, he is not empowered with the right to decide which questions are worth answering, truthfully... Just as Hillary isn't empowered with the right to decide which laws are worth following.
