When you say one thing and then say another statement which contradicts your first one, that makes you a liar. Bush is a liar. He’s a rat bastard too, but that’s my personal opinion.
If there’s a leak out of my administration, I want to know who it is. If the person has violated law, that person will be taken care of. — George W. Bush, Feb 10, 2004
I don’t know about you, but that’s pretty clear and simple. No room for any interpretation.
Yesterday, George Bush commuted the sentence of Scooter Libby. He disregarded the wishes of the public and the judicial system and the jury and did what he wanted. Apparently, the leak wasn’t so important. He’s a hypocrite.
WASHINGTON (AP)- President George W. Bush on Tuesday refused to rule out an eventual pardon for former White House aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby. “As to the future, I rule nothing in and nothing out,” the president said a day after commuting Libby’s 2-1/2 year prison term in the CIA leak case. Bush said he had weighed his decision carefully to erase prison time for Libby, a former aide to Vice President Dick Cheney. “I made a judgment, a considered judgment,” the president said. “I stand by it.” At the same time, he left the door open for the possibility of a pardon later. He’s a liar and hypocrite. Flat out, unequivocally, and without any doubt. If you needed proof here it is IN HIS OWN WORDS. Apparently, justice is not for his friends, but only other people. I just cannot begin to tell you how upsetting this is. I personally feel that Libby should have been tried for Treason along with Bush who clearly knew what was going. Treason still carries the federal death penalty. Real justice would see Bush get tried for Treason against the United States of American and for single-handedly subverting our justice system (and don’t forget Mr. Gonzales dismissal of the attorneys either).
I say, let’s try him for High Treason (and the death penalty as prescribed upon conviction) as an example to those who would use the office of president to put their personal goals and desires ahead of those of our country. The good of the nation is what the president is supposed to serve and he is losing his way more and more every day.
The Law of the Land (: “whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”
By definition releasing that information gave aid to the enemy, and by Bush’s own words we are at war with terrorists. We are at war, aid was given to the enemy. All requirements for High Treason have been met. The penalty is death. I say, let’s do it.
Impeachment just isn’t good enough. Kill the bastard.
