Obama Jockey's for the Win

Obama Would "Immediately Review" Potential Of Crimes In Bush White House

Attytood's Will Bunch has a new interview with Barack Obama:

Tonight I had an opportunity to ask Barack Obama a question that is on the minds of many Americans, yet rarely rises to the surface in the great ruckus of the 2008 presidential race -- and that is whether an Obama administration would seek to prosecute officials of a former Bush administration on the revelations that they greenlighted torture, or for other potential crimes that took place in the White House.

Obama said that as president he would indeed ask his new Attorney General and his deputies to "immediately review the information that's already there" and determine if an inquiry is warranted -- but he also tread carefully on the issue, in line with his reputation for seeking to bridge the partisan divide. He worried that such a probe could be spun as "a partisan witch hunt." However, he said that equation changes if there was willful criminality, because "nobody is above the law."

Read the full transcript of the exchange here.

That's a good way to appeal to conservatives for sure.

I would hope an enforcement of the law would appeal to everybody, particularly conservatives.

Yeah, since conservatives are all about law and order, and stuff.

I guess government corruption doesn't count. Only lies about blow jobs matter to conservatives.

Not a chance, IMO (without some kind of blockbuster revelation). I don't think Obama is as foolish as some of the people here at ChiefsPlanet and if he has any hope of being a uniter, it's not by launching a partisan witchhunt.

It aint' gonna be no partisan witch hunt, ala Monicagate. It'll be long overdue, is what it'll be.

So if an inquiry comes back with nothing will you be here to admit you were wrong about your suspicions?

This is what I was saying. I suppose if Obama is looking to secure the tin-foil hat crowd he'll win their votes. If Obama wants to be seen an a uniter and does this he's dumber than most of us give him credit for.

Dems have got to stop trying to appeal to GOP ... they will NEVER cooperate, so just stop trying and do what you think is right.

Well, I like power but I could go for it. I think it would set a great precedent for America by being done in America.

I think it would be perfectly fine to investigate whether we willfully and criminally authorized torture and whether we covered anything up. That's all he's going for. He didn't say that we should investigate conspiracy theories, just if there is evidence of willful criminality. And there won't necessarily be such evidence, so it all could be moot.

I really doubt people are going to be pissed off because he looked for (and possibly uncovered) evidence of willful criminality in pursuing a torture agenda that the people never authorized.

If anything like this happens we stand a pretty good chance of not having anyone interested in being a part of any future administration. This just may be the dumbest idea I've ever heard. And remember, I don't have penchief on ignore, so I've heard some really dumb stuff.

Funny avatar TC. They have a bunch of old real school ads just like that in the lobby of Stanford. Heaven forbid we ever question some of the medical advice we get.
