Oh, the poor BDS sufferers on the Left. Our dear 43rd President hasn't made a peep since he left office a month ago and the typical loons on the Left just can't let him go:
There were clues in the last couple of years that W. and Condi were trying to sidle away from Cheney by using the forbidden strategy of diplomacy in dealing with Iran and North Korea, and by cutting loose Rummy.Because their BDS never ceases to end, now the loons want to create this supposed discord between Cheney and Bush due to Cheney supposedly being pissed that the former President didn't grant a Scooter Libby a full pardon. But here's what the idiots refuse to acknowledge: President Bush stayed true to form in not pulling a Bill Clinton and exploiting his authority to pardon criminals. Liberals all predicted and were ready to gloat the day Bush pardoned Libby, but that day never happened and yet all the BDS-sufferers attacked the President anyway. Bush did enough for Libby in commuting his sentence and if Cheney really is still upset about his not pardoning Libby, he should get over it.
As one official who worked closely with both W. and Cheney told The New York Daily News’s Tom DeFrank the last week of the administration: “It’s been a long, long time since I’ve heard the president say, ‘Run that by the vice president’s office.’ You used to hear that all the time.”
The clearest sign of disaffection we have is Bush’s refusal to pardon Scooter Libby, the man known as “Cheney’s Cheney,” despite Vice’s tense and emotional pleading. It was his final, too little, too late “You are not the boss of me” spurning of Dick Cheney.
It may seem pointless for W. to worry about his legacy at this juncture, but he clearly did not want to add a Marc Rich blot to all the other gigantic blots on the copybook.
