1000% agree. Using the article author's logic, I guess it would be ok if after his child is abducted, the police say, "Well.....it's been two days and gosh darn it the kidnapper has probably gotten away so we're closing the case. You and the misses are young, go home and make another kid." Just give up trying. Isn't that what you're advocating Mr. Carrol?
SuperDad has it right. If you're not wiliing to honor the oath of office, then don't run for the dam office. But if you take the oath, honor your oath.
