Olbermann: "Mr. Bush, You've ceased to be the President" [VIDEO]

Besides characteristically obliterating the Bush Administration verbally, Olbermann makes a key distinction. We the people of the United States are always forced to accept and live with and even in some cases support presidents who don't represent our own political beliefs or party. Our presidents should be able to do the same for us, but instead Bush has allowed partisan politics to invade literally every aspect of what he does. Even Richard Nixon had the decency to resign for the good of the country but Bush has never, ever, put the country ahead of his cronies, pet projects and ego. Check out the video to your right to hear more of Olbermann's special comment of the Libby commutation, the possibility of impeachment and the parallels to Richard Nixon.
