George W. Bush: The Law and Order President

AP reports:

"President Bush spared his former aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby from a 2 1/2-year prison term in the CIA leak investigation Monday, delivering a political thunderbolt in the highly charged criminal case. Bush said the sentence was just too harsh."

Yes, perjury isn't that bad, right?

Trent Lott on Clinton's perjury:

"I think clearly perjury is an impeachable offense . . . I think bad conduct is enough for impeachment."

Bill Frist:

"There is no serious question that perjury and obstruction of justice are high crimes and misdemeanors. . . Indeed, our own Senate precedent establishes that perjury is a high crime and misdemeanor. . . The crimes of perjury and obstruction of justice are public crimes threatening the administration of justice."

Arlen Specter:

"Perjury and obstruction of justice are serious offenses which must not be tolerated by anyone in our society."


George W. Bush on Scooter Libby:

"I respect the jury's verdict. But I have concluded that the prison sentence given to Mr. Libby is excessive. Therefore, I am commuting the portion of Mr. Libby's sentence that required him to spend thirty months in prison."

Question for all the potential Democratic nominees . . .

Would they pardon George W. Bush for any crimes he may be convicted of in the future?
