SCOOTER LIBBY PARDON

Just when you thought the Bush administration could not surpass its previous obscenities, it does.

Lewis Scooter Libby is a crook, judged so by a jury of his peers.  A Republican judge, appointed by George Bush, sentenced  Libby to 30 months in prison well within the guidelines set down by the Bush government.  Never the less, Bush, who said he did not want to interfere with the jury’s finding that Libby is a crook, commuted his entire jail sentence andsaid he would not rule out a complete pardon.

     This, despite the fact that Bush has given very few commutations and pardons and the fact also that more than 3000 inmates in federal prisons have asked for pardons or commutations.  Clearly in the eyes of George Bush people are not equal before the law.

      What exactly is going on here?  Is there a quid pro quo?  Do Bush and Dick Cheney, Libby’s former boss, want to placate Libby before he rats on them?   This is just another proof that Bush is the worst president in American history.
