That's not exactly right. Any lawyer would have lost his license in a case of a prison sentence. It was just a formality.

I am not a Bush supporter. I support Rudy Giuliani.

Its the bigger idea of the immigrants. The Democrats are ultimately using this as a way to hack at Bush. What about Clinton? Look at this long list of commutations by him:

http://www.usdoj.gov/pardon/clinton_comm.htm

What now leftists? OMG, your president did that!

He pardoned more people than any other modern day President. Here is a long list of the former Democrat's Presidents Diplomatic Moves:

http://www.usdoj.gov/pardon/clintonpardon_grants.htm

President Bush has commuted 1 person, pardoned 3. Whose corrupt?

Everyone should consider him, both leftists and rightists. Moderates must take note that he is currently playing tough guy b/c of the upcoming caucauses, but deep down he has a huge respect for social rights and that was proven in NYC throughout his tenure as mayor there.

The eyebrow was because that post had nothing to do with anything. Did someone ask you if you supported Bush, what did this have to do with anything?

This is so weak. You don't think we would have debated those at the time if we were in FYM?

Is anyone in here arguing that Bush is the only one?

Want to discuss immigration? Fine, start a thread.

Pardoning and commuting itself is no corruption at all. Bringing up those figures doesn't prove anything, and don't make anyone corrupt. If it was corrupt per se, do you think a President would be allowed to pardon or commuting?

Bush was known to be very strict when he was Governor of Texas. He signed a tremendous amount of death sentences, and barely ever pardoned one.
As a President, that didn't change.
No one is more corrupt only because he pardoned orcommuted anyone.

And something else. Your arguing is basically: Clinton pardoned and commuted people, so it's not wrong if Bush commutes the sentence in this very case at all. That's just baseless. You cannot make anything right only because someone else did something similar, or something that in its core is the same.

If the pardoning or commuting in any of Clinton's cases was wrong, or corrupt, call him out on this. That is wrong then.

But that wouldn't change, in any case, that this time Bush committed this very mistake. It just doesn't make his action right.
Clinton is history, and you can't say: "If this President made a mistake there, the next has to be allowed to do the same himself." If one gets away with it, lucky him. If the other gets caught, his pity. It's as easy as that.
But before going on about Clinton you should take out an actual case and evaluate it on its own.

Nevertheless, it's not any topic here.

Did you even understand what I was writing there? Guess not.

And I thought my English wasn't that bad.

It's not required to post someone's entire post.

The point is, you can't generalize people. And that no one in here has ever claimed Clinton or any other president for that matter hasn't commuted anyone.

This paticular commutation is the one at hand and it's the one that many people think sucks. Pointing out another, doesn't change the issue...

And I'm writing a whole novel.

No wonder no one understands me.
