Be fair to Bush?

Many people have been asking us, "Could Bush actually pardon himself?" Would it be despicable? Would it be shameless and cowardly! Bush and Cheney and their crew lied day after day, week after week, month after month, and the media flooded the U.S. and the world with their lies about weapons of mass destruction
—which they claimed they knew the specific amounts and locations of—with lies about Iraq producing atomic bombs, with lies about Iraqi drones that could carry bombs and chemicals all the way to the U.S, on and on and on!

It's disgusting that Bush could lie his way into the Iraq War, causing the death of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and the death of 4,000 American soldiers, not to mention the tens of thousands wounded on both sides, and not suffer any consequences for it! Congress hasn't impeached him—after all, they lie as much as he does—and the American people are either ignorant, apathetic, powerless. Because the bigger the lie is, the more people are apt to believe it, because they can't possibly believe you would dare to tell such a big lie unless it was the truth!
Taxpayers have spent a total of $206 billion on contracts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
