President Bush Pardons H. Lewis Libby

This New York Times article along with every major US news organization is carrying this story. How in the hell did Bush come to terms with the fact that a man the US Supreme Court would have left in jail actually did no wrong and doesn’t deserve just punishment? Nah, it’s because President Bush thinks the jail term is “excessive.” Apparently The President and the Supreme Court have differing opinions.

Oh wait, I know why – it’s because Lewis Libby was a frigging patsy, a fall guy for the administration – more specifically a fall guy for Carl Rove (who remains above the law and is NOT a member of the US Government). Libby was innocent all along and Bush’s conscience got the better of him. That’s all I can come up with.

What a week in Washington: first the Vice President declares that he is not a member of the Executive Branch of the US Government which marries nicely with his “Executive Privilege” clause on on not releasing members of the Energy Task Force because he IS a member of the Executive Branch.

This is ridiculous.

    As a United States citizen, I think it is appalling that President Bush has pardoned “Scooter” Libby. I further believe it is way past time for the United States Legislators to do something about the over extensive powers of the office of the president. George W. Bush and his entire executive staff should be tried for abuse of power. What does it take for the United States Legislators to react and DO something about this?
