    But But But, I thought none of Bushes cronies ever got caught or got punished?

    Further I suggest before you start down this path you remember how many aides and appointees of Democrats have gone to jail as well.

    What this PROVES is that if your a crook and get caught, you go to jail no matter who is President.

    A former Bush White House aide was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for stealing nearly $600,000 from a government program that promotes democracy in Cuba.

    Felipe Sixto apologized Wednesday for stealing from the Center for a Free Cuba. He had pleaded guilty Dec. 19 to theft.


    Just how many have been in the Bush admin?

    yeah, and not one of them have been convicted of anything since
    so your point on them fails
    and most of what they were convicted on was just political whitchhunts

    People don't get convicted of being witches, they get convicted of crimes. Maybe soon the War Criminal in Chief himself (that's Bush by the way).
