Obama Will Not Rule Out Prosecuting Bush For Torture!
Obama spokesperson Robert Gibbs today said that the administration will not rule out prosecuting President Bush for torture.
Asked what changed after it seemed the President did not intend to prosecute Bush Administration Officials regarding GITMO interrogation techniques ... Gibbs......."no one is above the law."
Wild Thing's comment.......
Power can be a wonderful thing, a person with power can do a lot of good in the world. But it also works the other way too. The power Obama has been given is not a good thing, it is the worst thing that could ever happen to a person like Obama. He will use his power to hurt others, and destroy our country.
Even for the short time he has illegally held the office of president he will go down in history as the worst president this nation has ever had.

If he goes through with this it will be the worst thing for this country. It will devide the country even further. Obama is inviting an attack of 9-11 proportions or worse.
Also some of these liberal Newspapers are on the brink of bankruptcy and are encouraging Left wing bloggers to write stories about this. No body is checking the facts. One story went that one of the terrorists that was Waterboarded, was waterborded 6 times per day. Sounds more like a sexual experience rather than any form of torture.
This whole notion of prosecuting our own President is absurd.

It's possibly time for the citizens of The Republic to get more involved. And if this means armed insurrection, then so be it. The call has already been put out by Governor Perry of Texase with his open support of State's Sovereignty, so the next step is inevitable.

If you don't like what Obama is saying, just wait five minutes.

This Obama is leading us to a second civil war or revolution. I remember the warnings from the Left when they suggested anarchy if Bill Clinton was tried for crimes after he left office.

Obama is opening the doors to Stalinistic reprisals against all citizens of this nation not just the Bush administration. Like Stalin, where will his persecution and purges end? We all watched the jackboots in action when Janet Reno's gestapo seized Elián González from his relatives home. So Obama starts his purge then moves up the line, this means that every soldier, every veteran or every conservative who opposes him or his administration can and will be singled out as a threat. Napolitano's DHS memo message outlined their "enemies" list. Every dictator has done this and Obama has all the signs of being a dictator.

Congress will bail out the New York Times and the Washington Post. Those newspapers are "house organs." No business worries about its mouthpiece paper or magazine making money. They are the Administration's Ministry of Propaganda. They will not be allowed to fail.

Then we need to go back and try every President who had to preside during war times--Johnson and Nixon for Vietnam/Truman for the Korean conflict/FDR for WW 2. See how stupid it all is?
The intelligence was there and Saddam was warned that if he broke any of the UN Rules we would be back and he did. This was not a new war, but the continuation of the first war. Can't liberals get that straight? Afghanistan is the new war.

Where is the leader we need to take back our country? There are plenty of troops ready to serve yet we lack that special leader. Me? Nope, I'm a rifleman.

I don't care how the Obamination goes down, as long as he goes down real soon.
Can we charge Obama with causing the Fannie Mae manager's suicide? or maybe Bawnee Fwanque?

TomR is right, he's leading us toward a Civil War or Revolution. If he tries to prosecute Bush for defending this country, there will be a war. Conservatives who never really backed Bush will now stand behind him.
Rather than worry about what the Bush Administration did to terrorists, why doesn't he go after those who killed our men who were taken prisoner. Not a peep from Obama about the GI's that could only be identified by DNA.

This is a post I made today. Please hit and comment.
In order to torture people don’t you first have to have humans? These Islamist radicals are sub human and don’t even rise to the level of being pigs or dogs. Even if Obama’s so called torture was used it would be less than stepping on a cockroach. Obama, get over it. We have not had a domestic attack since 9/11. Perhaps instead of focusing on this Justice should be looking into the Obama administration and Congress’s degradation of our liberties guaranteed by the Bill of Rights and Constitution?

Prosecuting former leaders and officials over policy disagreements when there was no criminality involved is not how "real" nations behave. Kwame Hussein Lumumba is leading America down the path to third-world oblivion . Please tell me this is a bad dream.

Mark, I agree oh soo much.
He says he wants transparency yet he is NOT.
He says he wants to work with both parties,
yet he does not unless they are a rino and
even then he only 'tolerates' the rino like
a small bug to stomp out later.
You are so right, doing this will divide our
country more then ever.

Glenn Cassel AMH1(AW) USN RET, I sure wish
we were watching a different kind of history
being made. One of strength and growth and
the enemy within being taught a lesson instead
of their path of destruction to the greatest
country in the world.
Posted by: Wild Thing at April 23, 2009 12:55 AM
Rick, that sure is the truth.
Posted by: Wild Thing at April 23, 2009 12:57 AM
Tom, thank you, I had forgotten about that
regarding Bill Clinton.
Posted by: Wild Thing at April 23, 2009 12:59 AM
Jack, I didn't know that about dictators
thank you. Yes that is exactly what Obama
has done. This just gets scarier.
Posted by: Wild Thing at April 23, 2009 01:02 AM
Horace,yes they need those papers to help
push their propaganda.
Posted by: Wild Thing at April 23, 2009 01:04 AM
Lynn, exactly, this is not only dangersous,
but it is also very stupid. They can add
Bill Clinton to the list for bombing the
asprin factory too, they might as well.

cuchieddie (Known Infidel), big smile and I
sure am glad you are a rifleman!!!!
I hope and pray we start now, right now,
in fact yesterday to see some start to
lead the way. So far we get bits and moments
of it and that is just not good enough.
Posted by: Wild Thing at April 23, 2009 01:10 AM
Billy Ray, good one, yes he should be blamed
for that. The left sure would if Bush was
Posted by: Wild Thing at April 23, 2009 01:13 AM
BobF., I agree. I think Obama doesn't have a
clue how to be president, he is NO leader.
Posted by: Wild Thing at April 23, 2009 01:15 AM
Bob A., thanks for the link.
Posted by: Wild Thing at April 23, 2009 01:17 AM
Willy, I wish with all my heart I could
tell you and me too that this was just
some horrible, terrible nightmare and
we will wake up tomorrow morning and none
of this has happened. That there is no
Obama in office and we have a conservative
