Worse Than Watergate

Washington Post:
...George Mason argued that the President might use his pardoning power to "pardon crimes which were advised by himself" or, before indictment or conviction, "to stop inquiry and prevent detection." James Madison responded:
[I]f the President be connected, in any suspicious manner, with any person, and there be grounds to believe he will shelter him, the House of Representatives can impeach him; they can remove him if found guilty...

Madison went on to any contrary to his position in the Philadelphia convention, that the President could be suspended when suspected, and his powers would devolve on the Vice President, who could likewise be suspended until impeached and convicted, if he were also suspected.
In short, our only choice now is to impeach the President and Vice President, who are busily commuting the sentences of people who were justly convicted of crimes that the Pres and VP were also involved in.

Bush has once again proved that he's a liar and a scumbag. He swore that the people behind the outing of Plame as a covert CIA agent would be punished, and now he's just spit on his own words by commuting the sentence of one of the men responsible. Why is Bush still in office? He and the rest of his criminal war-profiteering scumbag groupies should be in prison, preferably in solitary, for the rest of their worthless lives. They've murdered thousands of American soldiers to make sure Halliburton had a good few fiscal years. They all deserve life in prison, even though it will never make up for the lives they've taken.
