Bush Speaks

QuagmireImage by Night Heron via FlickrMy friend Vjack over at Atheist Revolution had a few choice things to say about W:
As for "speaking up for the weak and voiceless among us," how do you reconcile this with your tax cuts to the wealthy, your unjust war in Iraq, or the debacle that was Hurricane Katrina. You godiots sure do talk a good game about how compassionate you are when it comes to fetuses, but the moment someone is born, you abandon them.
Vjack rightly points out how the right wing's overwhelming support of innocent lives only extends to fetuses. Once you are born you are on your own and if you aren't rich you're in trouble.
Good riddance and here's hoping the door does in fact hit you on the way out!
Something I just said in my last post, actually. Vjack goes on with his rant:
But seriously, W, I do hope to see you again. I hope to see you on the news every night as you are investigated for war crimes and a host of other criminal abuses of power committed by your administration. I hope you face the full extent of the law you have tried so hard to subvert. I hope the American people rip their heads from the sand and hold you accountable. In doing so, we will show the world that you have not been acting on our behalf and that no one is above the law.
Amen! I do hope Obama will pursue charges against Bush and compnay for their war crimes. One lawyer on TV said that if we don't do it other countries have an obligation to pusue war crimes prosecution. That could really be emarrassing.

I keep hoping Obama's stand of not prosecuting them is just to lull them into a false sense of security so Bush will not issue blanket pardons to himself and all top officials. Bush doesn't want to do that because it would be an admission of guilt, plus he doesn't think he did anything wrong so why do a pardon? Hopefully Obama will change his mind about holding the Bush people responsible for their crimes, otherwise all future adminastrations will think they can get away with anything and oour rul of law is gone.
