End of an Error!

Being the president of the United States of America comes with many different titles.   The most popular are Commander in Chief and Leader of the Free World.  But there is one other title that has been conspicuously missing the past eight years.  And that would be Chief Law Enforcement Officer.  I guess that title got swept under the Oval Office rug as Bush and his gang of cronies violated the Constitution time after time.

President Obama has said that he wants to look towards the future and not look behind at the past.  As well he should.  The challenges that face us are enormous and he needs to expend his energy looking forward.  However, that does not entitle Bush and his friends a free pass.  That is why we have the Department of Justice (DOJ).  The mission statement from the DOJ reads as such:  To enforce the law and defend the interests of the United States according to the law; to ensure public safety against threats foreign and domestic; to provide federal leadership in preventing and controlling crime; to seek just punishment for those guilty of unlawful behavior; and to ensure fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans.

Given that mission statement it is incumbent upon the DOJ to investigate to the fullest extent of its powers the alleged crimes of prisoner torture, illegal detentions, illegal renditions, and illegal wire tapping.  In America, no one is above the law.  That means that the president and all of those who make up the power elite in Washington should be held just as accountable as Pookie on the street corner selling a dime bag of weed.

I have very strong feelings that laws were broken by the upper echelon of our government during the Bush Administration and they need to be investigated.  And if warranted, those responsible need to pay the price for their misdeeds.  All errors eventually need to be corrected.   Especially those committed by the former Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the United States!

    If Clinton could get impeached for lying about a blowjob, then I think an investigation into all the mischief that occurred under the last President is definitely appropriate. Do to the GOP as they did to the Dems… But it seems Obama wants to leave that behind in the interest of another quaint concept: “unity.”

    I’m much more interested in the news that a Pennsylvania judge has ruled that poker is a game of skill and so not covered by state gamabling laws. I’m giving Obama a few months to get on the “legal poker” bandwagon as part of the economic stimulus top bring back those offshore poker businesses. 😉

    Those cruises to nowhere need to be taxed in Florida, as do so many other riduculous exemptions. That would help the economy greatly.

    Why does our Governor Crist, who BTW, is a very popular guy, think we will get any national handout. We pay no national income tax – one reason people move to Florida.

    Anarchist, I swear I am going to sneak into your house and hide all of your playing cards. LOL

    MzCynic, Everybody (who is capable) pays federal income taxes. We do not have a state income tax in Florida. But they sure as hell get it in other ways.

    Oh but Florida will get a share of that money. Most of it is handed out by “formula” of one sort of another, such as population, etc…..
