President's Power of Pardon

Sorry to inform you, Snark, but Goatlocker's posts are quite cogent. His main point is that Republicans are just as guilty as Democrats in running up the debt and getting us involved in pointless wars. That's a valid argument. Your response is mostly name-calling and denunciation--a sure sign that your own arguments are weak. Examples: "libbie shill," "severely circumscribed intellect," and the unclever "profolack of education." And this just scratches the surface. As your father probably told you--if you have to resort to name-calling, you should reconsider your argument.

This is, quite simply, untrue.

The schooling I've administered to goat has centered largely around his contention that one should not support Romney/republicans because GWB engaged in deficit spending.

That's true. Of course, Obama has engaged in deficit spending at an average of THREE TIMES THE RATE OF GWB - who, incidentally, is not running in this race.

Therefore, asserting that "there is no significant difference between the two wings of our one-party system" is just not so. If you're striving for the award of "purest conservative," good for you. In the meantime, thinking adults recognize that any action making more likely re-election of Obozo is a grievous error.

These are not insults. They are descriptors.

You have no college degree - or do you dispute that?

You attempt to convince conservatives not to vote for Romney because GWB added to the nation's debt at fully 1/3 the rate Obozo has done.

And, as a result, I recognize you for the libbie shill that you are.

Not insults; accurate descriptive phrases. Part of the comprehensive dressing-down that I've administered to you over the last several days, high school.

I realize you're not exactly a candidate for MENSA, but even someone with your limited intellectual capacity should really work on your ability to craft and deliver good insults - especially if you're going to claim "snark" as part of your handle.

"High School graduate" and "libbie shill" aren't exactly cutting, much less clever. Work on it, kid. Then get back to me when you've come up with something worthy of response.

You, PT, clearly have difficulty reading. Perhaps you've missed in my posts the FACTS about deficit sizes. You've missed the FACTS about Obama's utter lack of executive experience. You've missed the FACT that goat cannot support his absurd "republicans can't get enough war" laughable assertion. You've missed the FACT that goat cannot support his "...often" claim about marijuana convictions being longer than murder convictions.

So, yes, you should apologize. Your post, like goat's, is simply inaccurate.

Indeed, "Goatlocker" seems to have cured himself of the dreaded "D and R Syndrome"--the mistaken notion that there's really some significant difference between the two wings of our one-party system.
President Bill Clinton used his presidential pardon power in July 2000 to commute the sentence of Serena Nunn, who was sentenced to 15 years for a first-time nonviolent drug offense when she was 19. The pardon shaved three years off Nunn's sentence. Nunn told me over the phone, "I thought then that it was a great thing that a president used his power to help an average person."

Nunn later graduated from college and then the University of Michigan Law School. Last month, having passed a character fitness test, Nunn passed the Georgia bar. On Monday, she will be sworn in as...
