In addition to firing those U.S. Attorneys who were moving too aggressively in prosecuting corrupt Republicans, the Washington Post is reporting that the Bush White House interfered with a prosecutor who was going after the big tobacco companies.
The leader of the Justice Department team that prosecuted a landmark lawsuit against tobacco companies said yesterday that Bush administration political appointees repeatedly ordered her to take steps that weakened the government's racketeering case.
Sharon Y. Eubanks said a supervisor demanded that she and her trial team drop recommendations that tobacco executives be removed from their corporate positions as a possible penalty. He and two others instructed her to tell key witnesses to change their testimony. And they ordered Eubanks to read verbatim a closing argument they had rewritten for her, she said.
So, to recap, Bush is against fighting global warming, wants creationism taught in the schools instead of evolution, has got us into a bloody civil war in Iraq, let a great American city drown - and, oh yeah, for good measure, is in the pocket of the cancer makers.
It's almost like you can consider an issue, see what position Bush and his team takes, and then know the opposite position will be the honorable and correct one.
Truly, the Worst President in History.
