Bull: One man’s ‘principled stance’ is another man’s extortion scheme
Ryan Summerlin October 2, 2013
Morgan Liddick’s column on Oct. 1 used many words to argue that the Republican game plan, regarding the debt limit, was “principled stance” against a law passed by Congress, signed by the President, and upheld by the Supreme Court. The one word he didn’t flirt with was “extortion,” a criminal act. It is the misuse of the power given to public officer. A “principled stance” is nowhere defined as a legal defense to “extortion” and if it were, Liddick would have mentioned that legal defense.
