Mere hours after a court decided that Scooter Libby would have to begin his 30 month jail term while his conviction for obstruction of justice is being appealed, President Bush commuted his sentence so that he will NEVER have to spend a day behind bars.

It is not a full pardon, and Libby will still have to serve two years probation and pay $250,000 in fines, UNTIL his appeal is upheld by a blatantly partisan Appeals Court, and his conviction overturned.

Bush's only comment was that he felt the 30 month sentence was "excessive", although it fell well within the sentencing guidelines. What Bush didn't say is that now Libby has no incentive to tell the truth about his former bosses complicity in criminal acts, the investigation of which he obstructed. That would be Cheney and Bush, the"co-godfathers" of the crime family running this country.

The commutation of Libby's sentence is indicative of our Presidents unbounded arrogance and total disdain for the rule of law, and is every bit as damaging to the concept of "equal justice" as what Bush and Rove have done by politicizing the Department of Justice.

Common people no longer have any faith that our system is fair, and rightly perceive that you can get away with anything if you're well-connected or rich. If you're neither of those, you are in trouble.

What Bush did- commuting the sentence of HIS FORMER EMPLOYEE in order to keep the law away from himself-should be grounds for immediate impeachment, followed by a first degree felony conviction.

A clear majority of the American public wants Bush to be gone, and the outrage continues to build. I expect that soon a clear majority will want him gone by any means necessary. Bush claims he speaks to God. That is not true-he talks to himself and thinks he's God. A face-to-face meeting with the real God, in His place, would be a good thing.
