What I Would Have Done If I Were President:
This whole travesty was never about Scooter Libby, the Vice President or even whether Saddam Hussein was attempting to acquire yellow cake uranium; it was about liberals concocting evidence to “prove” the President lied his way into the War in Iraq.
Barak Hussein Obama continued that pursuit with his reaction yesterday to the Presidential commutation of Scooter Libby’s prison term. I understand Chris Matthews had a conniption fit on his show last night. Similar responses have been forthcoming from Democrats, en masse.
For God’s sake, give it up you dumb ass liberals! We all now know that Saddam DID, in fact, attempt to purchase yellow cake uranium in Niger. Saddam was planning to build nuclear weapons. This contrived conspiracy - "Plamegate" - was cooked up at Democratic Party HQ, decreed & funded by their #1 patron and defacto Chariman, George Soros.
While I am glad that Scooter Libby will remain out of prison, I don’t think the President went far enough. He actually said he “respected” the jury’s decision. That, I do not agree with, at all.
If I were the President, I would have said this, “I disagree with the jury’s findings, as well as the entire prosecution. The judge’s rulings were in error for allowing the case to go forward in the first place. This was a political witch hunt designed to discredit me, George W. Bush.”
Additionally, I would have said this, “Furthermore, I am ending this total miscarriage of justice right here and now. I want to publicly beg Scooter Libby’s forgiveness on behalf of the partisan political hacks who hung his ass out to dry. I am granting him a full pardon. I wish it was within my power to expunge this entire matter from his long & distinguished public service record.
Finally, I hope your microphones and recording devices are working properly: JOE WILSON, AND HIS WIFE, FORMER CIA FLOOZIE, VALERIE PLAME, ARE BALD-FACED LIARS, UTTER DISGRACES AND TRAITORS TO AMERICA! No time for any more questions.”
That’s what I would have said about the Scooter Libby matter if I were President George W. Bush!
Bravo, Patsy--you've accurately nailed many of our own thoughts on the subject. Thanks for one of the best responses to the whole sorry mess!
