  •  in the making excuses department (8+ / 0-)

    I'll let you guess who in the excuse department here on dkos made the below on the subject of ...
     Good thing we elected a President who goes after bank criminals as diligently as he goes after war criminals.

    1.  Presidents don't prosecute people.  

    2.  Presidents appoint people who make prosecutorial decisions, and the Senate consents to or blocks those appointments.

    3.  The Senate has not only never attempted to get guarantees from these appointees that they would go after banks and war criminals, nor pressured them to do so once confirmed, they have in fact quite explicitly demanded guarantees to the opposite.

    4.  We each, as individual citizens, have far more immediate and direct control over Congress than over the Executive branch.

    Step 1 to making sure leaders can't pass the buck is to stop doing it yourself.
