Oh Please!President Obama is doing what every other President before him
has done prior to Thanksgiving.Have others tied this very traditional
Thanksgiving Day story with politics during the realm of King Reagan and other
Conservative Republican Icons?Aren't there some other stories of
interest out there? So much of the DN tears down our President day after day.Come on, pick on someone else for a day or two. Heaven knows there are lots of
other political individuals causing mayhem in America. Let's hear
more about some of them once in a while. And yes, some are Republicans!
If Obama does not pardon enough or if he does pardon more - he'll be
criticized either way.
Dammed if you do, dammed if you don't. Some people just have to
fabricate reasons to be offended.
Those that want a pardon should follow Obamas example. Never accept
resposibility, Always blame someone or something else, And if you are forced to
apologize do not admit that you actually did the deed you are accused of, just
say your sorry that you were just misunderstood.
Stick with the turkeys.My favorite was the year GWB pardoned TWO birds.Dick Cheney wanted to name them "Lunch" and "Dinner."
The criticism of President Obama is getting so ridiculous that I fully expect
the DNews find an editorial writer who has delved in the Presidents dentals
records and reveals that Obama fails to floss on a regular basis!
If you do not want to be locked up! Don`t break the law!
liberal larryCriticism of the King?What's not to
criticize? Total failure and a proven liar. But maybe there is a video.
Perhaps Obama should just say," If you like you turkey, you can keep it.
Period!" Then take it away from you, punish you with higher taxes for owning
the turkey, force you to pay for other people's turkey and lastly, then
apologize and say he is sorry you didn't understand him and that you
didn't understand why turkeys really are!
I'm not worried about Obama's pardon rate. Give it until December
2016, after the next election--especially if the Republicans beat Hillary. The amount of pardons Obama will issue will be amazing, since his
administration is the most corrupt and incompetent in history--yes, worse than
Buchanan, Grants, and Hardings.
Anyone remember 'Scooter Libby'? Of course not...
We get our turkeys earlier in the year, here in the wilds of Canada. Let's
make a deal. You take our Prime Minister and we will take your president. Obama
might enjoy the unfettered powers of the Canadian constitution (but over a less
Romney was also criticized for not pardoning a lot of people when he was
governor. It sound like someone is just looking for one more thing to criticize
This, unfortunately, has been a trend with elected officials for decades now.
They're all so afraid of being called "soft on crime" that they
hesitate to use their power to pardon even on cases where the injustice is so
egregious to be obvious to everyone.

politician's example, even Republicans. I have yet to hear any politician
say "Yep, I screwed up. I made a mistake." Any and all of them make
excuses for their "percieved" misdeeds. People simply misunderstand
politicians. They never make a mistake.
