In sparing Libby, Pres. Bush built an IED that blew up the judicial system

A few years ago, I remember seeing a commercial to help stop drunk driving which said, “Friends do not let friends drive drunk” and the act of a good friend would have been to take away the keys to the car so that no one would get hurt.  Most likely that commercial did save countless lives.


So when I read this statement coming from Senator Gordon Smith (R) of Oregon in which he said of President Bush, "President Bush is my friend, and I don't always agree with my friends," perhaps a little intervention on behalf of the American people should be done by Republican lawmakers as they see their president riding rough-shod over the United States Constitution as well as the Bill of Rights.


With the commutation of Scooter Libby, these so called friends of the president and even the vice president should demand for the greater good that both resign immediately.  After all, they were elected to serve a far greater good than protecting said friend(s).  Would they rise to such an occasion showing bravery like our founding fathers?  That is for them to answer.  Our reality states they do not have that sense of courage and bravery.
