Scooter Skates

President Bush has commuted the prison term of former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, facing 30 months in prison after a federal court convicted him of perjury, obstruction of justice and lying to investigators.
Earlier Monday, a federal appeals court unanimously ruled that Libby could not delay his sentence.

The charges relate to the 2003 leak of CIA operative Valerie Plame's identity.

Libby was only weeks away from surrendering to a prison.

Bush was under great pressure by Libby allies to pardon the former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney.

In a written statement issued hours after that ruling, Bush called the sentence "excessive."
I think it is now time to call for the impeachment and removal of both President Bush and Vice President Cheney. We now know that the rule of law means nothing to these people. They will stop at nothing to further their agenda and believe they are above the law. I remember when candidate Bush said he would "restore honor and dignity to the White House". Nothing could have been further from the truth.

His action today told the American people that there is one set of rules for the common people and another set for the elite. He is no better than the thug dictators he rails against. This is the most criminal administration in our nations history. It really is time to remove them from power.
