Let's now consider Barry Bonds. He has been indicted on four counts of perjury and one of obstruction of justice for his testimony about his use of steroids. Sounds familiar? Sure.
And after all, yesterday Bush spokesman Tony Fratto said,
"The president is very disappointed to hear this. As this case is now in the criminal justice system, we will refrain from any further specific comments about it. But clearly this is a sad day for baseball.”Yes, so if we are to heal, should Bush commute any sentence? Well, here are the differences:
- Bonds is not a crony of Bush
- Most people feel he's arrogant and dislike him. Even in the SF Bay Area, they feel he's arrogant, though some still like him.
- Neither side, liberal or conservative is going to be shouting for a pardon or commutation.
