Keith Olberman Gets it, Gives it to King George

Founder-Chic is pleased to present MSNBC host Keith Olbermann's indictment of President Bush's latest tyrannical act: the 'commuting' of Scooter Libby's sentence.

As Mr. Olbermann rightly argues, the Constitution is clear on this question: when an Executive exercises his prerogative powers for party ends, then s/he ceases to be the President of the United States and is only the president of his party.

Where is the concern for the common good, Mr. President? You were supposed to be above party and above faction. You were supposed to care about the health of the republic. You were supposed to uphold the Constitution. You were supposed to promote and protect democracy, not promote and protect the Republican Party.

Shame on you Mr. President.

Founder-Chic joins Mr. Olberman in calling for the resignation of President Bush and Vice-President Cheney.
