"I respect the verdict. But I have concluded the prison sentence given to Mr. Libby is excessive, therefore I am commuting the portion that required Mr. Libby to spend thirty months in prison."

-George W. Bush, July 2, 2007

In the above YouTube clip, Katie Couric, of CBS News, says that "even people in power with friends in high places, are not above the law." Kaite, I was watching you that night... and I was hoping you were right. As it turns out, George Bush, running true to his selfish form, commuted the sentence of I. Scooter Libby today, because he felt that 30 months in prison for lying to a Grand Jury, obstructing justice and committing what amounts to an act of treason, by leaking to the press the name an active CIA agent, was "excessive." Is this what justice in America has come to? Where is the justice for Valerie Wilson? The timing for this is remarkable, it's only 2 days before Independence Day. How sad for America. George Bush needs to be IMPEACHED! Dick Cheney, needs to be IMPEACHED! NOW!

I'm surprised it was not a full pardon. Maybe that'll come later, after the peasants have put away their pitchforks and torches.

This peasant will never put the pitchfork or the torch away... not ever! Even if I am the only one still willing to to stand up and say it's wrong!

It' SO wrong....but not surprising. What a bunch of crooked cronies we have running our country. It's absolutely shameful.

The sickening thing is....the WILL get away with it.

What a sad day for our country. What exactly do these guys have to do to get impeached? It's scary how corrupt they are and what they keep getting away with. :-(
