than you really have no concept of the First Amendment.........
Those people weren't prosecuting anyone, you're reading into something that isn't even there. McCain makes up stuff and these people are independently clearing up blatant misleading information.
I give up.
Too bad public figures can't sue for libel. I feel bad for Obama just far having so much crap flung at him in the name of dirty politics.
question for you.......do you want elected officials(im assuming sheriffs in MO are elected like those in MT are elected) deciding for you what is the truth? none of these individuals likely know Obama personally.....how do they know what is the "truth" and what isnt? do you really want elected officials deciding for you what is the truth? we have had county sheriff's here i wouldnt trust left alone in my house for 5 minutes, same with two of the last 3 county attorneys......not to mention some of them have been 100% completely for one party or the other not paying attention to the person....i DO NOT EVER want these ppl deciding for me what is and is not the truth, especially on something like presidential candidates.........
and point of fact public officials can sue for slander and libel.......however most refuse cause it opens them up to suits aswell cause generally what they are running is just as off base.....unless you know your 100% innocent of the same thing to that person you dont sue them for libel cause they can do the same to you
