Obama and Bush
George Bush is a war criminal, a mass-murderer and a monster. He's worse than Saddam Hussein. Why does Obama "respect" Bush as a "human being"? Why can't Obama criticize Bush and tries to investigate his vile acts of barbarism and torture? I know the economy is in his top of the list, but America's tainted image is just as important.

1. While I don't necessarily agree with it . . .
It's apparent that he's decided to travel on an entirely different and presumably higher road. He feels he'll be able to govern better *without* a war crimes trial going on (IMO).

Is he right? I'm far from sure. Is he smarter than me, a better natural politician, and surrounded by some of the best minds in government? Could be.

Galls me, though.

2. Well...
There SHOULD be a war crimes trial. Bush lied us into war that bastard deserved to spend his retirement years in a cell at a maximum security prison. I don't give a damn what other people say otherwise.

3. I couldn't agree more about what Bush deserves . . .
And from my point of view, the cost of *not* doing it is higher than the cost of doing it, in terms of reclaiming our national honor.

But I don't Obama and his advisors agree with me.

4. Because a President prosecuting his predecessor would probably set a bad precedent.
If there's going to be any legal action against Bush, it'll likely have to originate outside of the Obama administration.
