How do you feel about Obama's use of his pardoning power?

Too much, not enough?

  • Honestly dont know nor do I really care. I have more important things to worry about, like the economy and finding a job that I can actually live off the wages. EVERY president has the ability to pardon criminals.

  • George bush commuted the sentence of a 4 time convicyted felon, one who committed treason by outing an undercover CIA agent. So he served no time....

    Every president will pardon or commute people I don't agree with...

  • Sweet---wrong again.


    Lewis "Scooter" Libby did not leak Valerie Plame, CIA agents name. He was convicted of 4 counts of perjury, obstruction of Justice, and making false statements. Bush ended his 30 month jail time, his convictions still stand. It was later found out that Richard Armitage was the one that leaked her name. They did not do anything to him.


    If you want to go tit for tat, I could bring up Mark Rich that Clinton pardoned.


    I have no problems with anybody that Obama pardoned so far.

  • They all do it. It would be nice if it wasn't done for political favors but oh well. That's the least of my worries right now
