Indeed, when Sandy Burglar went to the National Archives to trim off any loose ends, and was stuffing documents into his socks to smuggle them out of the building, Bush did FARK ALL to even question it.
Why should we expect any different from the next bunch of thieves? I haven't even heard of Romney SUGGESTING that all the EOs the the Mobster signed should even be reviewed.
I hope and pray that Romney’s seeming lack of interest in prosecuting the crooks or overturning EOs is because he is enough of a politician that his immediate goal is winning. I think there is at least a decent chance that he will deal with these things once he’s in office.
If I were in his position, those would be pretty high on my priority list, but I wouldn’t start with that. First, I’d keep my promise to get rid of 0bamacare and get to work on any other promises made. Second, I’d clean house by firing as many socialists/Marxists as I possibly could, particularly in DOJ and State. You can’t steer the boat in the right direction if all the paddlers are heading the opposite way. I wouldn’t tackle any political prosecutions until the house was clean and I was confident that things would proceed with honesty and fairness.
I never understood why Bush looked away from so much corruption. I have to wonder if they had something they were holding over his head. At least with Clinton, the argument may have been that he didn’t want to tarnish the office of POTUS or drag the country through the mud (since that’s where it had been all through the Lewinsky years), or maybe that he didn’t want to create partisanship and divisiveness.
I can’t think of one good reason or even one lame reason for looking away from S. Burglar. None at all.
And as far as dividing the country, I don’t think we could be much more divided than today, so Romney should cross that off his list for reasons not to prosecute. At least he understands where the 47% is!
Some honest trials that bring out the truth would be more healing than “forgive and forget” and allowing the crooks to prosper from their crimes. Most American citizens would like to see that elected officials and their cronies are not above the law. This is one reason that Romney’s squeaky cleanness is a huge asset. (Romney wasn’t my first choice, but I like him more every day. If he cleans house, I will be the first to admit I was wrong about him. If he fails to govern conservatively, I will be looking for a viable third party candidate.)
