    Treason has led to the canonization of republicans for some time. Ronald Reagan and H.W. escaped prosecution not because of a statute  of limitations, but because Billy said looking back would not push us forward.
    Ronnie and H.W. should have been hung for anything from allowing Anthrax to be used for genocide of Iranians or for selling those same people weapons. It could be for funding terrorists in Central America , men that make the Taliban look like a bunch of peace loving hippies. In a nutshell , the Sandinistas were killing machines, but since the people were brown the outrage is minimal.
    Not going after Bush 2, Electric Boogaloo is easy. The precedent has been set, presidents are above the law.
    The media is on board. The question was asked , not that long ago, if there could be another Deep Throat . How many memos were leaked during the Bush years that we saw on Daily Kos or Huff Po or in The Daily Dirt (I miss you Jerky)  that were ignored ?

    Presidents are above the law. The more crimes they commit the larger the statue.
    I am shocked Ronnie's isn't larger than the White House ! We let this happen, we allow the legend to continue  and by the time I am 60 or so W. will be reflected on as a great man, like Nixon was when he died.

    I knew a guy in school who was a prick, I didn't go to his funeral. When asked why, my reply "He was a prick" . Honesty after a man dies isn't evil. Nixon was an asshole , Reagan was a criminal and before him or his ugly ass wife dies, H.W. is the biggest jerk on the planet.
    I will shout this today, I will shout it the day he passes. The truth will set us free.

      were the good guys!
      I assume you meant to refer to the Samozists and the Contras, who were indeed "killing machines," supported by Reagan and Bush I.

      above the law."

      Not only are presidents above the law, but the next president is expected to cover for the previous ones. Once elected a president apparently enters into a sacred contract or partnership with the earlier ones (Jimmy Carter apparently excepted). Talk about "comity".

        I look back at 1980 as the reason we are here today. Had Ted Kennedy not sought to destroy Carter and Carter had beat Reagan , we would be living in a different world altogether .
        BUT, Jimmy Carter should have prosecuted Ford for his illegal weapons sales to Indonesia . Once again, the weapons were used to kill brown people so it was forgiven.
