Hypocrisy over the Scooter Libby commutation

Just as expected, leftists have skewered George W. Bush for the commutation of the sentence of Scooter Libby. It is his Presidential prerogative to be able to do so and those on the left are whining and finger pointing. I find it extremely hypocritical of the critics considering the pardons doled out by Bill Clinton while he was in office.

For the record, I believe that Libby should have been pardoned, not the beneficiary of a commutation, but at least something was done. Libby was railroaded and falsely convicted to begin with, so at least part of the wrong was righted.

I would have expected nothing less than the whining hypocrisy of the political opposition. It is what makes them, well, them.
