Hat tip to JR at a Keyboard and a .45 for letting me know that Pres. Bush commuted the sentences of Boarder Patrol agents, Ramos and Compean. Their sentence will end in March of this year. I know their families are so happy. I am glad, too.
I think that this also speaks about Pres. Bush. It shows his moderate-ness. He didn't pardon them, he commuted their sentence. He didn't commute it until the very last day he was in office. So to President Bush I say, "Thank you" with a little" good grief" mixed in.
JR also has posted this very good video about the US Republic. I really enjoyed it, and I hope that you will to even though it has little to do with the rest of this post.
