While President Bush is touring the country pushing this amnesty legislation on us and indicating that he will give a fee rise and absolve ILLEGALS of their transgressions with the stroke of a pen, he has ignored the plight of a man who became the fall guy for a crime that only occurred in the minds of those suffering from Bush Derangement Syndrome and their enablers in the media.
While the Senate of the United States continues working on an amnesty bill for illegals that will allow gang members, sex offenders, murderers and malcontents stay in the country and welcome them with open arms and open pocketbooks, Scooter Libby is facing 30 months in a prison for a crime that he probably did not commit. While President Bush is touring the country pushing this amnesty legislation on us and indicating that he will give a fee rise and absolve ILLEGALS of their transgressions with the stroke of a pen, he has ignored the plight of a man who became the fall guy for a crime that only occurred in the minds of those suffering from Bush Derangement Syndrome and their enablers in the media.
I am not sure Scooter Libby lied to anyone but for the sake of argument, let us assume the jury got it right. He has been sentenced to 30 months in prison and fined $250,000 for lying under oath and obstructing justice, the very things Bill Clinton was guilty of. The Republicans are only too happy to see Libby take the heat for the Plame affair but when they had the chance to punish Clinton for the same offenses they were negligent in their duties. Now that very Senate is pushing a bill toward the President that will once again allow them to neglect their duties and thereby grant amnesty to millions of invaders while ignoring the plight of a US citizen who worked hard in the service of our country.
I believe in the rule of law but I find it hard to believe that this judge actually thinks that the punishment in this case fits the crime. Sandy Berger stole classified documents and destroyed them, a crime that he admitted to and he received a $10,000 fine and probation. For the life of me I can not figure out how Libby's crime was worse than Berger's and how Libby deserves to spend time in jail.
I also can not figure out how George W Bush can run around calling Americans names for not supporting his get out of jail (and into country) free card while remaining silent on Libby. Perhaps he is worried about upsetting his new found friends in the Democratic party or is worried about salvaging some sort of legacy. I have read some of the lefty blogs and they are praying that Bush pardons Libby so that it will damage the Republican party. These are the same people who demanded heads when the Plame affair reared its ugly head and were dancing in the streets when Libby was found guilty. These are also the same people who support this immigration amnesty bill. I guess the elitist's need for people to care for their lawns outweighs the sovereignty of this once great country.
President Bush would do himself and the party well to stop placating the Democrats and stop selling our country to the ILLEGALS. It is time for the President to step up to the plate and do the right things. He needs to nix this amnesty bill and he needs to pardon Scooter Libby and to hell with anyone who does not like it.
Only in America can a citizen and public servant be bent over and taken advantage of while the lawbreakers are allowed to waltz in and destroy the place.
When our great grandchildren read about this period in our history what will they think of the actions of our so called leaders? One thing is for sure, if the leaders continue on their present course those great grandchildren will be reading about it in Spanish.
Wake up America.
