"Okay, I know we've had monstrous presidents in the past who have incited or authorized the killings of Americans -- most notably President Richard Nixon, who by some accounts may have encouraged the governor of Ohio to have his National Guard 'spill some blood' at Kent State, and who certainly authorized the murders of Black Panther Party activists and others. But at least back then we still had judges in the federal courts and on the Supreme Court who took the Constitution, and their oaths, seriously, and members of Congress who would investigate such crimes. No longer." (07/04/11)
