The guy should have put on a dress.
The Office of the Pardon Attorney has announced President Obama has denied clemency to imprisoned Native American activist Leonard Peltier. Peltier is a former member of the American Indian Movement who was convicted of killing two agents during a shootout on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in 1975. He has long maintained his innocence.
Amnesty International condemned the decision.
As we saw in his remarks last night about how “the world isn’t going to end,” Obama’s too-cool-for-school schtick leads to nowhere. This is the same mediocrity who for the first four years of his presidency refused to use the “R” word when it came to blaming Congress for its intransigence.
They rolled him then, and because they got away with it they rolled the rest of the country in November. Hillary was right when she ran against him back in 2008: he’s no match for what he will be up against.
