    can't prosecute Cheney and Bush because the next president could then prosecute him.

    See how that goes?

    In fact, Cheney was not supposed to get SS protection. Obama gave it to him.

      Simply because, President Barack Obama did not prosecute Bush and Cheney as war criminals is no reason that the next Republican President will not try to prosecute Barack Obama for nothing.

      At this point, after 3 and a half years, Republicans are still challenging President Obama's Hawaiian birth certificate and Republicans in the House of Representing are commiserating over the fact that they cannot impeach him for nothing.

      Impeach Grover Norquist! Defeat a Republican!

      the President could uphold his oath of office and the law, prosecute members of the previous administration for the undoubted serious crimes they committed and not commit any heinous prosecutable crimes of his own to provide a rationale for he himself not being prosecuted.

      It's called the rule of law.  

      Advisors for President-Elect Barack Obama feared the new administration would face a coup if it prosecuted Bush-era war crimes, according to a new report out this morning.
