Obama the Merciless

President Obama is on track to go down in history as one of the least merciful presidents in history:

This month, one of the least merciful presidents in the history of the United States granted 13 pardons and eight commutations of sentence. The grants moved President Barack Obama’s overall mark past the administrations of John Adams (who served only one term), William H. Harrison (who died of pneumonia after serving only 30 days), James Garfield (who was fatally wounded by an assassin after serving only four months) and George Washington.

Regardless of any president’s motives, since most federal laws are bogus and unconstitutional (especially drug laws), until such time as the laws are changed or eliminated (I’m not holding my breath) there should be thousands of presidential pardons each year.
