Let me start by saying yes, I am furious with Bush. I believe commuting Libby's sentence was a clear example of quid pro quo. I also believe it's obstruction of justice in and of itself - the case was still ongoing with appeals. But, according to Constitutional experts it was within his powers to do this. 

Last evening, Senator Joe Biden declared:  

“It is time for the American people to be heard — I call for all Americans to flood the White House with phone calls tomorrow expressing their outrage over this blatant disregard for the rule of law.” — Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del.

Really, Senator? This is the one thing that you've decided should make us so livid that we need to flood the White House with calls? I have another idea. I think we should be flooding Congress with calls. Here's why. Bush has ignored the will of the Americans people since day 1 by stealing an election and hasn't slowed down since. Does anyone really think some phone calls are going to upset him? They may, however, shake a few members of Congress, especially some presidential candidates. It's no surpise Bush did this. Why wouldn't he? Congress has made it clear that he can behave as badly as he wants and there won't be so much as a time out. He knows mommy and daddy aren't going to take away the car keys. So, I point my finger to Congress.

Finally, and more importantly, where was the senator's outrage when Bush was committing real crimes? Why didn't he direct his chorus of Americans and his colleagues to react as strongly to the warrantless wiretapping which is a felony. Maybe that was too easy? They could have cut Bush off at the knees for that one. How 'bout lying to Congress and the American people to get us into an illegal war? Torture? Over 1000 signing statements designed to hold him above the law. We listened to quote after quote last night from the dems on how the president continues to hold himself above the law. No sh*t!

“It is time for the American people to be heard — I call for all Americans to flood Joe Biden's office with phone calls tomorrow expressing their outrage over his blatant disregard for the rule of law by not abiding by his sworn oath to protect it.”  Cheryl.

Call Joe Biden:

Wilmington office: 302-573-6345

D.C. office:  202-224-5042

Then call your own member of  Congress to let them know it's time to stand up and uphold the rule of law and Constitution through impeachment for the real high crimes and misdemeanors.

US Capitol Switchboard:  (202) 224-3121
