It must be nice for Scooter Libby having friends like President Bush. Libby, was indicted and convicted of obstructing the investigation into the outing of former CIA agent Valerie Plame, the President could have chosen to let justice take its course, instead he handed Libby a “get-of-jail-free” card.

Its more than a little maddening that Libby was convicted of a felony and gets to go home scott free. Oh, he has to pay a fine, but what the hell? If you or I had committed the same crime the GOP would have been calling for a life sentence. Bush claims that 30 months was too harsh a sentence. LIBBY OUTED A CIA AGENT! Isn’t that something that demands a harsh sentence?

It shows that the Bush administration feels itself to be above the law. Bush has proven again and again that he will is the worst president in American history. How can they possibly have been elected to run our country when they so obviously hate the Constitution and the rule of law?

Crooks and Liars has a great clip from MSNBC slamming the decision here.More here.
