Now That's What I Call a Taco!: How about you start by showing your support for the Constitution and International Law.
Alacritous: Can he pardon them before they're convicted of anything?
EponymousCowHerd: Offering a pardon is tantamount to a finding of guilt, and accepting a pardon is an admission of guilt.
hubiestubert: this would be tantamount to admitting that maybe, just maybe, that the Administration wasn't so sure about their legal standing.
KaponoFor3: hubiestubert: this would be tantamount to admitting that maybe, just maybe, that the Administration wasn't so sure about their legal standing.... or it might also mean that he knows that the next President would have no problems prosecuting him and anyone else to grind a partisan axe. Both are plausible explanations.
DamnYankees: Yeah. That's why Ford pardoned Nixon, right? Fear that the Democratic congress would have a partisan axe to grind.
Flab: So? He's got nothing to worry about, right? Gonzales said it was ok
KaponoFor3: DamnYankees: Yeah. That's why Ford pardoned Nixon, right? Fear that the Democratic congress would have a partisan axe to grind.Just because one President used his pardon in that way does not mean we can attribute the same motive or intentions to all future pardons, you know better than that.Flab: So? He's got nothing to worry about, right? Gonzales said it was okI'm sure he realizes a different AG might disagree -- I mean, its not like there was no opposition when this first was revealed.
Mordant: Bush was nothing but a puppet of the GOP. Blame them and the people who supported them, not just the tools they used.fark that.Bush may have been a puppet, but an example needs to be made. somebody has to pay for this shiatstorm hard so that nobody else even thinks about it. if Dubya pardons everyone else, then he is voluntarily taking the entirety of the blame upon himself. let the farker fry.
DamnYankees: There's really nothing left to do but mock you. Your arguments are pathetic, but people like you don't have political power anymore
Dancin_In_Anson: Oh please...Don't pardon a single soul.
KaponoFor3: DamnYankees: There's really nothing left to do but mock you. Your arguments are pathetic, but people like you don't have political power anymoreCounselor -- actually, I can't even call you that yet -- you will do well served to pay attention to your Legal Professionalism class. You may need to learn how to interact with opposing counsel while maintaining respect for them. Honestly, think about how many of my posts you've read -- have I ever exhibited a dismissive attitude about others who disagree with my viewpoint?Something for you to think about -- or are you so sure, so convinced that your side is right that it doesn't matter what one might say in opposition? An open mind is a much better tool for a future attorney to have rather than a close minded viewpoint.
DamnYankees: people like you don't have political power anymore
DamnYankees: Haha. You're an idiot.
KaponoFor3: DamnYankees: Haha. You're an idiot.I gave it a shot. Best of luck man. You used to actually be interesting to discuss things with on here. No more I suppose.
