More Good News: Pelosi Open to Prosecution of Bush Administration Officials

President Bush never took fighting the Democrats very seriously even when he realized that he couldn't win them over by aping them. Frankly, I was disgusted by Bush's inability to communicate conservative ideals but I got over that when I realized that Bush wasn't really a conservative. He is a pragmatist so when he got into office he chose to move on and ignore the crimes of the previous administration even when they were incredibly blatant. Now he is going to get a reward for his kindness.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is receptive to the idea of prosecuting some Bush administration officials, while letting others who are accused of misdeeds leave office without prosecution, she told Chris Wallace in an interview on "FOX News Sunday."

"I think you look at each item and see what is a violation of the law and do we even have a right to ignore it," the California Democrat said. "And other things that are maybe time that is spent better looking to the future rather than to the past."

Her position is very reasonable. Crimes should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and ignoring crime to preserve comity is a disservice to the nation. Of course, it wouldn't hurt if prosecuting a few Bush administration officials kept the rapid dog wing of the Democratic party happy.

We'll see if BHO is amenable to the idea of prosecuting executive branch officials when he knows that revenge might be an election away.
