More Libby Reactions From The Authoritarian Right

-- by Dave Johnson

Here is more reaction from the authoritarian right.

The American Mind

According to their [liberal media]] logic President Bush should have looked away at what he saw as an injustice because Libby worked in the White House. Because Bush hasn’t commuted others that means Libby should be denied this action? How is that fair to Libby?

Power Line

The two most important factors are Libby's public service and the fact that, at the time Libby made the false statements in question, the prosecutor already knew the answer to the question he had come to Washington to investigate. Indeed, it seems likely that but for the high profile and political context of the investigation, the prosecutor would not have asked Libby these questions.

Blue Crab Boulevard

Not only was no crime committed, but Joe Wilson comes out looking even worse than he already looks. ... And the whole incident started because Joe Wilson was more than willing to lie in an effort to get the Bush administration.

Ben Stein

The case against "Scooter" Libby was a total fraud. Completely bogus. The publicity-mad demoness Valerie Plame was not a covert overseas agent at the time the whole megillah about her erupted. So there was no, none, nada, law breaking by reporting that she was a CIA employee.

Second, there was no reason for the special prosecutor, the full on publicity hound Mr. Fitzgerald, to have even gone on with the investigation for a week or even a day.

[from Powerline:] "Indeed, it seems likely that but for the high profile and political context of the investigation, the prosecutor would not have asked Libby these questions."

I'll be watching for Powerline's retroactive critique of the Clinton impeachment process...
