Bush Commutes Ramos and Campean Sentences
Kudos to President George Bush in his decision today to commute the sentences of former U.S. Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Campean - the two agents who were given more than 10 years in prison for shooting a Mexican drug dealer.
The two men who have been serving their sentences since January, 2007 are expected to be released in the next two months.

Only 2% of Obama voters score perfect or near perfect on basic test about the campaign
Zogby has released the results from a brand new survey which gives us all a very disturbing insight into the mental capacity of the typical Barack Obama supporter.
The 12-question survey was given to 512 Obama voters, asking them very simple questions regarding the presidential campaign, the nominees, the news, and the scandals which surfaced during the run for the White House.
UTICA, New York -- Just 2% of voters who supported Barack Obama on Election Day obtained perfect or near-perfect scores on a post election test which gauged their knowledge of statements and scandals associated with the presidential tickets during the campaign, a new Zogby International telephone poll shows. Only 54% of Obama voters were able to answer at least half or more of the questions correctly...
The survey and polling tally was conducted by Zogby on behalf of John Ziegler for his project, HowObamaGotElected.com. For a preview of his documentary that is soon to be released, see the Youtube Video below:
