George W. Bush leaves two Border Patrol agents to rot in prison while proving the adage that a fish rots from the head down. The fish in this case is the Republican Party.
President Bush, who I have supported on a number of issues and who will likely be looked upon favorably a decade or two hence when the history of the modern war against Islamic extremism is written, has cut the Republican Party off at the knees with his war on the US Border Patrol, which has had so many ramifications.
So with only weeks remaining for the Bush administration, we need to point out to our fellow Republicans that Bush is pardoning people most of us would not want living in our neighborhoods.
But he is not pardoning Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, two Border Patrol agents who shot an illegal alien drug smuggler, and who were then hammered by the Justice Department after the illegal was granted immunity from prosecution.
We need to remind our fellow Republicans that if anyone deserves a pardon, it is Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean.
We need to remind our fellow citizens the Bush administration is condoning the conviction of Ramos and Compean on the testimony of an illegal alien drug runner – a case described twice as “hilarious” by prep-school twit and scumbag outgoing U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton:
Despite my respect for him in several areas, I would employ every expletive I know against George W. Bush in the matter of Ramos and Compean, if this was not such a family friendly blog. And as we draw closer to January 20, I will continue to outline this case, and the expletives may indeed begin to flow.
I would rather focus my efforts on reforming the Democrats, than resuscitating the Republicans, if Ramos and Compean remain behind bars.
