Keith Olbermann on Scooter Libby

July 3, 2007 at 9:25 pm Leave a comment

Keith Olbermann nails George Bush for single-handedly, without consulting the Department of Justice, commuting Scooter Libby’s jail sentence. Libby was indicted and found guilty of obstruction of justice and Bush in a extremely cynical, yet not unexpected move, overruled the court and let Libby walk.

Here is a taste of what Olbermann had to say:

In that moment, Mr. Bush, you broke that fundamental com-pact between yourself and the majority of this nation’s citizens—the ones who did not cast votes for you. In that moment, Mr. Bush, you ceased to be the President of the United States. In that moment, Mr. Bush, you became merely the President of a rabid and irresponsible corner of the Republican Party. And this is too important a time, Sir, to have a commander-in-chief who puts party over nation.
