BIDEN BACKS OFF ON PURSUING CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST BUSH & CO

Raw Story - Sen. Joe Biden aroused fresh speculations when he suggested, "If there has been a basis upon which you can pursue someone for a criminal violation, they will be pursued, not out of vengeance, not out of retribution, out of the need to preserve the notion that no one, no attorney general, no president -- no one is above the law."

Brian Kilmeade of Fox & Friends raised that issue with Biden, asking about "a report that if you guys are elected . . . you're actually going to pursue criminal charges against President Bush's administration and different people that served there."

"That's not true," Biden immediately replied. "I don't know where that report's coming from. What is true is the United States Congress is trying to preserve records on questions that relate to whether or not the law has been violated by anyone. Anybody should be doing that."

Biden emphasized that "no one's talking about President Bush. . . I've never heard anybody mention President Bush in that context." He noted that "there's been an awful lot of unsavory stuff that's gone on ... but I have no evidence of any of that. No one's talking about pursuing President Bush criminally."

Biden concluded his comments by explaining that possible misdeeds are "being looked into now, just so it never happens again in any other administration. . . "

Is anybody surprised by this? Washington politicians are cowards all.

Actually, I think the term "enabler" is more apropos. Of course no one will pursue Bush. It is the end of the Republic. Burn it down already.
