The Compassion of Bush = Rich White Friends of Bush
It has been a truly moving experience to witness the
concern and compassion the president of the United States can show towards a
convicted felon. Particularly someone accused of such grave offences as Lewis
"Scooter" Libby, Dick Cheney's former chief of staff. On March 6 2007 Libby was
convicted of obstruction of justice, making false statements to the FBI, and
twice committing perjury before a grand jury. According to the charge sheet,
Libby "did knowingly and corruptly endeavor to influence, obstruct and impede
the due administration of justice by misleading and deceiving the grand jury".
So it wasn't a case of absent-mindedness, then.
That is why George Bush's act of mercy is so inspiring, especially when one considers that compassion is not something generally associated with him. When he was governor of Texas, for instance, there were quite a number of convicted felons towards whom he didn't show much compassion at all. In fact he insisted they receive the full penalty of the law, which in their case was somewhat more severe than in Libby's. They were executed.

Cindy Sheehan Delivers Ultimatum to Pelosi
Sheehan, the slain soldier's mother whose attacks on President Bush made her a
darling of the anti-war movement, has a new target: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Sheehan, who announced in late May that she was departing the peace movement, said she decided to run against Pelosi unless the congresswoman moves to oust Bush in the next two weeks.
LA Mayor's Summer Affair Makes Headlines Washington Post
Just an observation on the Scooter Libby debacle. With all the republicants comparing the Bush outrage with Clinton's pardons it's important to remember that Clinton pardoned these guys on his last day in office, W still has 1 1/2 years left in his term. By the time it's over there will be a lot more conservative criminals on the street.
Thanks for writing, Jonathan.
I fear you are right. Two conservative criminals that will be added to our streets are Bush and Cheney, unless the Democrats realize the Articles of Impeachment are in our Constitution. Impeach, Indict and throw the key away!

Cheney Secret Revealed Six Years Later
Sue Ellen Wooldridge,
the 19th-ranking Interior Department official, arrived at her desk in Room 6140
a few months after Inauguration Day 2001. A phone message awaited her.
"This is Dick Cheney," said the man on her voice mail, Wooldridge recalled. "I understand you are the person handling this Klamath situation. Please call me at — hmm, I guess I don't know my own number. I'm over at the White House."
Wooldridge wrote off the message as a prank. It was not. Cheney had reached far down the chain of command.
