Skip to comments.Obama might pursue criminal charges against Bush (Biden says criminal violations will be pursued)
Posted on 09/04/2008 2:59:52 AM PDT by SkyPilot
Democratic vice-presidential nominee Joe Biden said yesterday that he and running mate Barack Obama could pursue criminal charges against the Bush administration if they are elected in November.
Biden's comments, first reported by ABC news, attracted little notice on a day dominated by the drama surrounding his Republican counterpart, Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
But his statements represent the Democrats' strongest vow so far this year to investigate alleged misdeeds committed during the Bush years.
"If there has been a basis upon which you can pursue someone for a criminal violation, they will be pursued," Biden said during a campaign event in Deerfield Beach, Florida, according to ABC.
"[N]ot out of vengeance, not out of retribution," he added, "out of the need to preserve the notion that no one, no attorney general, no president -- no one is above the law."

Yawn. Desperation sets in.
Joe, I’d worry about your own son.
Is this just down right stupid, or what?
If only your hair grew as much as your nose, Joe.
Stalin too had purges.
This Commie neophyte will be no different.
We will need an American Pinochet not long after the election of this false prophet.
Speaking of Rush’s discussion of Sarah’s speech prior to it happening . . . was that roof nailed on? LOL. Dang I was starting to wonder during Rudy’s speech and then when she was talking I wondered if that roof hadn’t just magically disappeared :-D
Don’t worry Joe. The announcement last week of Sarah Palin as McCain’s running mate BURIED any excitement over B. Hussein’s speech the night before; your announcement won’t even come CLOSE to doing the same for HER speech.
Watch out, Obummer.
What goes around comes around.
Think of your buddies, terrorist Billy Ayers, cop-killer Bernadine Dhorn, convicted felon Tony Spezko, America-hater Jeremiah Wright.
And that’s only the beginning.
Yup, that idea is going to unite the country. Sheesh!
Also just trying to shore up their base that they assume (as they want to too) are running for the doors. Our gal fired her first shot and it scared the poo out of them. Their hoping the unhinged Bush hatred would bring them running back and also the all out war thing Rush mentioned is also happening.
Pandering to the base? Making Moveon and daily KOS happy? What kind of idiots while running for president want to start a tradition where outgoing presidents are summarily arrested and tried for crimes?
Well, trusting this is true, who is going to ask the Alinsky Community Organizer about it?
Biden’s remarks clearly indicate the tyranny he and Obama have planned for our nation. Prosecuting your predecessors and suppressing free speech through the ‘Fairness Doctrine’ would be just beginning of the hell they’d put our nation through.
Such governments are most known for obliging those who cry words similar to, “Give me liberty or give me death,” with the latter soon after the last word has left their mouths.
Isn’t that unconstitutional on its face?
These people want to lower our great country to the level of a 3rd world mudhole that takes its ex officials and prosecutes them....as others have noted, Stalin style.
They simply MUST be defeated.
This kind of rhetoric is the rhetoric of Marxists, Fascists, Communists, and Socialists. It is the rhetoric of hate.
Further proof that the Democrats want to take America down to a Third World country status.
