    Can you believe this?

    Obama pardons 5, commutes 1 sentence for convictions including selling drugs, gambling - The Washington Post
    Looks like El Cokehead still needs his old suppliers.

    List of other Presidential pardons?
    This is disturbing on the surface...but how does it compare to other Presidents?

    George HW Bush pardoned Orlando Bosch. A true blue terrorist that killed over 100 people by bombing an airplane.

    And some of Clintons were interesting as well...I mean a list like above and what they were arrested for.
    There is an obvious pattern here - selling drugs. Just curious as to what patterns other Presidents have shown.

    That one pissed me off. Otherwise, on the whole, I thought George HW Bush was a pretty good president. Didn't vote for him..but he has my respect.

    As usual, libs have to deflect. These people were convicted of these crimes.

    None of you obviously want to address the issue.

    If he did, what does that have to do with Obama? And what makes you think I liked Bush's every decision?

    What issue?

    Presidents have the power to pardon people convicted of crimes. Don't like it? Lobby to take that power away.

    Is that the issue?

    Or is the issue that Obama, specifically, is doing something almost every President before him has done?
