The US meeeeja is flogging the suggestion that ‘pressure is mounting for Bush to pardon Scooter Libby.’ Make no mistake- the only real pressure for a Libby pardon is coming from Dick Cheney and Karl bloody Rove- because they know they are next in line for conviction.
From the illegal Iraq war and the associated ‘Plamegate’ affair to warrantless NSA wiretapping of innocent US residents and citizens, no greater crimes of abuses of power and lying to Congress have been committed in the entire 231 year history of the United States than those perpetrated by King George and his court.
If Congress have one hair on their collective asses, they’ll table articles of impeachment on Bush and Cheney- NOW.
MORE: Now 84 years old, 1972 presidential candidate George McGovern had this to say to the Madison (Wisconsin) Capital Times:
“What we have learned about how he has conducted himself leaves no doubt that he should be out of office,” McGovern says of Cheney. “If he had any respect for the Constitution or the country, he would resign.”
“There is no question in my mind that Cheney has committed impeachable offenses. So has George Bush,” argues McGovern. “Bush is much more impeachable than Richard Nixon was. That’s been clear for some time. There does not seem to be much sentiment for impeachment in Congress now, but around the country people are fed up with this administration.”
“I think this is the most lawless administration we’ve ever had,” he says of the Bush-Cheney team. That’s a strong statement coming from a man who tangled in 1972 with Nixon, and then saw Nixon’s presidency destroyed by the Watergate scandals. But McGovern says there is no comparison.
“I’d far rather have Nixon in the White House than these two fellows that we’ve got now,” said the former three-term senator from South Dakota. “Nixon did some horrible things, which led to the effort to impeach him. But he simply was not as bad as Bush. On just about every level I can think of, Bush’s actions are more impeachable than were those of Nixon.”
