I suppose there are those that will defend that Croc-wearing idiot in the White House, for commuting the sentence of Lewis "Scooter" Libby, but I'm not one of them.
The current occupant of the White House has decided that the fines and probation imposed on Libby are enough of a punishment. It must be nice to have friends with that kind of juice.
Lewis Libby is a liar.
Lewis Libby is a criminal.
Lewis Libby is a convicted felon.
Why should I, or any other American feel any sympathy for Lewis Libby? Why shouldn't he have to serve his sentence? You can bet your ass that if I had obstructed justice and lied to the FBI in a criminal investigation, that I would have gone to prison... probably with a longer sentence.
I guess the message that the American people should take away from all of this is that crime is OK... unless you are poor, in which case you deserve to be in prison.
I suppose we shouldn't be surprised... this is a President that thinks that THIS guy...
...is a man of integrity, and should remain in Office as Attorney General, despite his incompetence and glaring ethical lapses.
Thanks, Mr. Bush, for reconfirming what I have always known about you.
You sir, are scum.
