The first record was being the first black president.
The second record was getting a Nobel Peace Prize as an American president with less time in office than it takes to grow a marijuana plant and later having droned an American citizen.
The third record was being the first president whose dumb bell weight workout was less than the then House Majority Leader (Nancy Pelosi).
Now he can boast that his newest record was to pardon 78 criminals and grant another 153 commutations of their sentences, amounting to the most acts of clemency granted with total disregard for public safety than any U.S. president ever in a single day.
White House shyster lawyer Neil Eggleston announced the decisions in an official blog post, describing all the individuals as being "deserving" of their pardons.
He wrote: "The 231 individuals granted clemency today have all demonstrated that they are ready to make use--or have already made use--of a second chance." He just wouldn't want to live anywhere near them or have his kids go to their kids' schools.
In addition, Eggleston previewed additional clemency decisions in the weeks ahead. "I expect that the President will issue more grants of both commutations and pardons before he leaves office."
President Obama wants to leave office not only emptying out Gitmo of its terrorists, but to empty out our prisons here at home because he has a soft spot for drug offenders as he was one himself. Fortunately for him, he did not get caught and was therefore able to become president.
Of the total 1,176 inmates who sentences he has shortened, 395 of them were serving life for serious crimes. However, like Eggleston, none of those folks getting out of the slammer are going to be living anywhere near him nor going to his kids' schools.
That should be a requirement.
Another requirement should be the redefinition of the term "non-violent." All drug offenses are inherently violent, either directly or indirectly.
