I don't care if it's true or not, no politician (and certainly not the
presadent!!!) should be able to sue for libel. If they don't like that then
they shouldn't get into politics. In fact I'm very uncomfortable with the
very idea of anybody suing for libel. Yes sometimes a injustice will occur
because of  something false that somebody said, but if government tries to
correct that by getting into the truth determining business it would create
far more problems than it would solve. Perfect justice is the enemy of good
