The historical fact that a criminal, President Richard Nixon, was pardoned for his crimes and went unpunished for breaking the law, has been in the news recently.
I remember that pardon and the terrible feeling I had when I realized that it placed the U.S. President above the law. Maybe if Nixon had been lawfully punished, those "tolerant" Americans among us would be less likely to "tolerate" the current U.S. war criminal president. Bush is the king of criminal presidents, compared to Nixon, so I guess, some Americans have become very, very "tolerant."
