Bush's tough stance on crime

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20050718/...NlYwMlJVRPUCUl

"If someone committed a crime, they will no longer work in my administration."

No criminals in your administration, eh? Way to take a stand!

An especially tough stance considering your earlier comments that anyone who leaked names would be fired.

Seemingly Bush and Cheney have convictions for drink-driving......but it was a long time ago to be fair.

Bush should be credited for introducing new legislation to combat white collar crime in the aftermath of the Enron collapse.

As regards the Rovegate thing, all we can do is watch with interest....

I'm normally not going to be really nice to Bush , but I don't give a damn about something he did 25 years ago. DUI isn't cool, but hey, it's been a long time. I'll forgive it now. And white collar crime, yes. It's about time someone got tough on corporate crime. It didn't keep Richard Scrushy from getting acquitted, and I find it hard to believe he didn't know about the fraud which everyone says did happen.
As for Karl Rove, well, I don't think I'm capable of making a really unbiased judgment about the guy. I think he's a real and that's that.

Is there a conviction to report (not include those that occur in the press)?

No, but does it matter? He's been tried and convicted in the High Court of Free Your Mind.

I suppose you two would have been equally defensive of Clinton.

'No leave poor Clinton alone! It's so unfair for the media to comment about Whitewater, Ken Starr, etc, when he hasn't even been convicted of anything.'

No conviction- lets appoint to head "Faith Based Charities"



"Secretary of Education"




maybe a recess appointment to the UN?
