President Bush said we want Osama bin Laden “Dead or Alive.”
President Huckabee will grant him a full pardon.

For those of you who would have voted for Dukakis, if only he were a Republican!

Remember all of Bill Clinton’s last minute Presidential pardons?
Just imagine what Huckabee’s would be like!!

You joke, counterpunch, ;-), but terrorists whether in dank caves in Pakistan or in high class dachas with dancing girls near the slopes of Mt. Paektu, have internet, satellite, TV and couriers.

Believe me, they are watching the US elections closely.

They wonder what is in store for themselves from 2009, and if things will get rough or if they will have a pushover.

We might always want to put ourselves in the shoes of Kim Jong il or Hugo Chavez or Osama Bin Laden, and figure out who they would most fear in the Oval Office. And vote accordingly.

Sometimes clemency is a solution. I wonder if those who got off the hook and went straight will come to Huckabees defense. I’ve visited some people in prison, and many of them are kept alive with a hope that their sentences will be reduced. It’s difficult, I hate to disqualify a man just because he believed that some people behind bars had gone through a metamorphis and changes of them doing the same thing were nihl. I tend to be lenient and give people the 2nd chance. I guess that is why they have executive priviledge, so that they can on certain recommendations over ride the sentence of the court.

Are you some kind of bleeding heart liberal... like Huckabee?

Good points, good points rovenstinez.

Well, let us get into it and investigate.

Let us see with the recidivism rate was for the folks he set free. That would be an excellent study. I would not be afraid of its ultimate results, either way--although I have my own conjecture.

The innocent people they raped and murdered didn’t get a chance to change.

I guess Huckabee supporters either don't care about this, or they feel they may need a pardon down the road.


Is there any wonder the Left is pimping this boob?

Clemency for armed robbers? Clemency for somebody who beat a man to death with a pipe in a bar? Clemency for the murderer of a minister?

I notice you are relatively new here. Primary voters are certainly entitled to all information about a possible candidate they are voting for. So far, most posters on this thread haven’t done anything but express dismay at the number and nature of the pardons that Huckabee granted, not to mention the personal connection he had to several of them.

Doesn’t that bother you in the least??

Surely you jest? Who cares if they were violent repeat offenders, he pardoned murderers. What part of murder are you not understanding? So they didn’t get out of prison and kill someone else yet, so it is ok? Once you murder another innocent human being outside a mutually combative or self-defense paradigm, jail is where you belong.

I must concede that I also am against life sentences. Spending the rest of your life in prison is no life. I think if you receive a life sentence they should just put you down after 5 years, especially when the evidence is irrefutable. Give that 50k a year it costs to house and imprison these scum back to the taxpayer.
