    Just to school your as-usual ignorant ass ... it breeches protocol for the President, who is also allegedly your Commander in Chief, to proclaim someone guilty prior to a conviction.

    Google is your friend. Might want to go see the left's/media's rreaction when Nixon prematurely pronounced Manson guilty.

    But then, he was a Republican. I forgot. Rules only apply to Republican Presidents.:cuckoo:

    And you must hate "due process" and "innocent until proven guilty" as well.

    Manning deserves a fair trial, as would any other citizen.

    How did that work out for Mr Manson?

    I was a big fan of Nixon by the way. He would be called liberal today

    Had the trial been held in today's court system, Manson would have gotten a mistrial. Doesn't change the fact that Nixon breached protocol with his comment, and so has Obama.

    As an aside, I find it odd Nixon's name doesn't come up as misspelled but Obama's does. I guess I forgot the "Herr" prefix.
