Yes, I wrote that post title. And I chose the wussy, prissy “weewees” for a good reason, too.
So, he FINALLY took some sort of action, but instead of the pardon (and abject apology) they richly deserve, George “Fifi” Bush–prissy little lapdog to successive Mexican presidents– merely commuted their sentences.
What a pussy (hey, I can mix my own metaphors if I want to).
On the issue of enforcing the law, instead of enfArcing it as he has done, President Bush gets a big red “F” from me. Instead of avidly prosecuting businesses that throw American jobs at illegals, his administration gave us a few “show” raids and… little else. Instead of actively and vigorously defending our borders, his administration has effected the evisceration of border enforcement. With his record on guarding our borders, he didn’t even need to lie to the American people in an attempt to get HIS desired amnesty bill passed, because a de facto amnesty situation exists already, but being a lapdog to successive Mexican presidents, he went ahead and lied about it anyway.
And he caps it off with his last act of “clemency” as a president by a limp-wristed slap in the face of two men who were doing the job of law enforcement President “Fifi” Bush did not want done:
Bush didn’t pardon the men for their crimes, but decided instead to commute their prison sentences because he believed they were excessive and that they had already suffered the loss of their jobs, freedom and reputations…
Right. Convicted because they “covered up” the shooting (the actual record shows they did not), they have “suffered the loss of their jobs, freedom and reputations” for simply doing their duty, a duty President Bush also pledged himself to perform, but failed utterly to do. Hmmm, another “Martha Stewart” case with the cherry on top of persecuting honorable law enforcement officials for actually attempting to enforce the law.
Thankyouverymuch, President Fifi Bush, for advancing the cause of anarcho-tyranny so well. *spit* Let’s just hope a REAL, honorable patriot or three steps in to mend Ramos and Compean’s lives with decent employment and a restoration of at least some small measure of what was wrongly wrested from them and their families by “feddle gummint” persecution under the administration of a Mexican lapdog.
(And here’s looking forward to a place in hell for Johnnie Sutton, absent a heartfelt repentance of his scurrilous behavior.)
Let this be the true epitaph of the Bush II presidency: George “Fifi” Bush almost does the right thing… but wimps out of office without doing so. Well, face it, to do the right thing on the matter of Ramos and Compean, he’d have to face his years of sucking up to illegals and to the ricos in Mexico who want to export their economic and social mismanagement of their own country.
