    A governor is hardly responsible for every minor matter that crosses his desk.

    it's a hard, hard job. i feel so sorry for huck but he will just have to pull up those straps, now won't he?

    Funny thing about requests like that. People in prison seldom make them only once.

    And there are a number of other reasons Clemmons might've been released early.
    But we'll never know. What we do know is that Huckabee granted him clemency and the parole board released him. After that, this model citizen continued his crime spree and the judicial systems of both Arkansas and Washington failed to keep him locked up.

    I am not a republican, I am a card carrying democrat, and far left liberal. I don't think Huckabee did anything greater than make a mistake, as did a large number of others in this. We should learn from this, not point fingers.

    that is a very merciful attitude. some repubs do not know anything about mercy though. they feel it is a bad thing. hence, the willie horton ads.

    Just because there are asses among the conservatives, I don't think that is an excuse to be an ass myself(though some would argue I am). There are also some highly moral, upright, well thought out, well spoken conservatives, and those are the ones who set the standard I think I should strive for. Don't lower yourself to the level of the worst of the opposition, but try and raise yourself to the level of the best.

    Eleven years is way above average for what a person who committed a similar crime would serve.

    This thread is nothing more than pointless Mike Huckabee bashing.

    He must have the Democrats really worried for 2012.
    Im not a democrat but **** like this has me worried about the state of our criminal justice system.

    People like you supporting this has me worried about the state of our criminal justice system and its inability to receive any future reform./

    **** Huckabee

    And **** anyone who supports his decision here.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    IIRC, Texmaster is a libertarian.

    Or at least an internet libertarian.

    Big difference.
