The President: Done with Pardons?

CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller is reporting no more acts of executive clemency are expected from President Bush. The New York Times says "senior administration officials" have reported the same thing. FOX News quoted White House Press Secretary Dana Perino as saying the commutations would be Bush's last acts of clemency.


No unprecedented- blanket-preemptive-turbo-amnesties (UB-PTA's) for"war crimes"? How can this be? Hmm. Maybe they are just not "expected" now? No! Wait! Bush is going to resign and Cheney is going to grant the rest of the pardons, tonight and tomorrow morning! They are Bush's last acts of clemency! That's it! OK, finger off of the panic button.

I can't believe it! Doesn't that leave "Scooter" with the "felon" sign around his neck for the rest of his life? Maybe there's something that I don't understand, I always thought of GWB as a stand-up guy. If anyone has a valid reason for the abandonment I'd love to hear it.
