STARWISE points out that Bush refused to commute the death sentence of an admittedly guilty woman who found God prior to her execution. She found God just in time to be welcomed into his loving arms, but her finding of God didn’t make her less guilty or less deserving of her sentence.
Libby’s case is entirely different. There is no evidence of Libby being guilty, and quite a bit pointing to his innocence. Besides, even if he did lie, his lie was immaterial and thus does not constitute perjury.
On sound principle Bush refused to commute the sentence of the murderer. For political expediency Bush refused to pardon Libby.
The bottom line that Bush is just another elitist. Unlike Barry Soetoro he’s qualified to hold the presidency, and he’s a far better man than Barry Soetoro, but if America is to return to Constitutional government, the day of the elitist is over, otherwise sit back and enjoy the rule of the oligarchs.
You, sir, get it.
