Mitt Romney never granted a pardon, even for the most trivial offense. But when asked if he would consider pardoning Scooter Libby, Mitt Romney said “It’s worth looking at that. I will study it very closely if I’m lucky enough to be president. And I’d keep that option open.” Yesterday he blamed the prosecutor and completely ignored the jury, saying that “the prosecutor knew that there had not been a crime committed.”

Does this mean that he too, like Bush/Cheney,  subscribes to a duplicity in American justice?  One set of rules for the elite (his supporters), the other, for the rest of us?

How does one possibly square the holding of John Atkins accountable to the laws of our nation, but not Scooter Libby?
