Yes. He didn't wait long to pardon Scooter Libby for the Plame cover-up.He's still got two months left to find a way to pardon all the torturers, without admitting what they did was a crime.
The Bush-hating Liberal Media is trying to overblow Bush’s pardons as somehow being as bad as Slick Willie’s. They’re not even close. For one thing, Bush has issued less than half the number of pardons that Willie did when he abused this power. And Bush didn’t cowardly wait until his very last day in office so as to avoid having to answer for his actions. Also, Bush’s pardonees did not consist of terrorists and and other despicable creeps based on their donation$ to his library. That is scummy low, unforgivable. And once again the Lib Media is lying to us.
Bush did not pardon Scooter Libby but rather commuted his sentence, which is not the same thing. Libby is still barred from practicing law, which is how he made his living and he is still a convicted felon.
Presidential pardons are BS. They shouldn't be allowed. The president should not have the right to override the judicial system. I dont care if its Clinton, Bush or whoever. They should do away with it.
I agree with Bob, do away with them. Considering his alarming past (present? and future?) associations with radicals, one can just imagine the sort of characters that Obama will pardon.
Don't get riled up thinking about "doing away" with a constitutional power. Our Founding Father's gave the President this power for a reason. You can get rid of it only through an amendment.C. Scott Shields, Esquirewww.courtroomguru.com
I know, Mr. S. But much like unfettered freedom of the press, there’s no way our Founders could have envisioned the abuses which have crossed over into full-blown treason at the hands of anti-American Liberals, anymore than they could have envisioned a terrorist sympathizer like Obama one day becoming our president. What will we do when Obama bin Hussein starts pardoning his terrorist buddies?
