Bush Pardons Libby....What About Agents Compean & Ramos???

I don't know what else is left to say about our President. The ink is barely dry from Scooter Libby's conviction and he gets Bush to commute his sentence, but Agents Ramos & Compean are rotting away in federal prison for doing their job & defending our borders from violent drug runners. This is not justice, it's absolutely despicable. It goes without saying that any normal average Joe would never get this kind of extra special treatment that Scooter just received. Time to head lower in those approval ratings Jorge.

The conviction of Libby I'll admit was a little dubious, but I'm pissed off at the special treatment he gets and Ramos & Compean are having to dodge convicted illegal alien felons in prison while Bush ponders whether to grant clemency for them.

************4:45pm UPDATE**************************

I just got off the phone with Nacho Ramos's father-in-law Joe Loya and he is not a happy camper either right now. He has lost all faith in George Bush to do the right thing in this case. He told me the family is focusing on the Congressional hearing on this case July 31th and on their appeal.

    Allan, you do not understand!... Jorge put them there! It was his special secret order via his appointee Judge and Prosecutor.

    Why should Jorge pardon them?

    He should pardon them because it's the right thing to do Stan, but since they're not his buddy like Scooter was and because Bush is pissed off that his amnesty bill died, I believe Agents Compean & Ramos now have no chance to get a pardon. Bush doesn't want to upset the illegal aliens anymore than they already are.

    Ramos adn Compean committed a crime and fired shots on an unarmed man against Border Patrol policy; then they covered up their crime.

    The Bill of Rights applies to everyone in this country regardless if they are here legally or not.

    The case against Libby, dubious? He lied under oath and obstructed justice in the case of a covert CIA operative invoilved in intelligence gathering for Iran's nuclear program. During a time of war. That treasonous. That's firing squad time.

    Oh, and when you bring up Marc Rich who Clinton pardoned, just remember that his lawyer was Scooter Libby.

    I could give a rats ass about marc Rich & Bill Clinton. Scooty Libby received special treatment today. I'm pissed about that and the fact that Bush will probably now never pardon Ramos & Compean because of the failure of the amnesty bill. They were just doing they're jobs Dan...protecting the border from the hoardes of drug runners & illegal aliens streaming into the country. I know it's hard for you to accept that but you'll have to deal with it. It doesn't surprise me you side with the a convicted felon over guys that were defending the country.

    Oh Allan, I support Law Enforcement just fine. But these guys are bad cops who broke the law. No one is above the law, except maybe Karl Rove.

    I am a supporter of Ramos & Compean. So much for the justice system.

    I suspect that President Bush had intended to wait until 1/20/09 to take care of the Libby situation. However, because Libby was being forced into prison before his appeal was heard, Bush was forced to deal with it now. I don’t think Libby should have been convicted to begin with. He didn’t lie. He just got mixed up in what he said because of all the more important matters he was dealing with. Bush is going to suffer all the same political complaints from Dems like Dan by commuting the sentence that he would have suffered if he had pardoned Libby. So he might as well have pardoned him & the 2 border patrols agents at the same time. The political complaints from 3 pardons would not have been any greater than 1. It would have been the right thing to do too.

    Very good strategic move, Lee... I second that!

    However, Bush is lady, pussy and coward so he did not do that.... or he was drunk.... or his advisers suck.

    Actually Lee, Libby did lie. He gave false statements to a Grand Jruy under oath. And he obstructed the prosecution from fully investigating the outing of a covert CIA operative in a time of war.

    Libby committed crimes.
    Your border agents did too.

    Those two border guards might of
    gotten a little too zealous in trying to apprehend the drug smuggler but the most they should
    of gotten is probation or dismissel . Traitor Bush and his crew are a din of vipers and this is coming from someone who regrettably voted for him. I'd
    like to put them all in prison for

  • At 6:36 PM, Blogger lexi said…

    And for those say the border guards
    commited a crime... Homeland Security LIED about the facts that
    led to the arrest and convictions and only after a hearing and under
    oathe did they admit they lied. This administration makes watergate
    look like a tea party! It makes
    me sick!
