There's no obstruction of justice like pretending to be serving justice while obstructing her. If Scooter Libby didn't want to do the time for obstructing the investigation of the leak of the identity of a covert agent, he shouldn't have obstructed the investigation of the leak of the identity of a covert agent. In then end, though, we see that President Bush values loyalty above honesty, integrity, and patriotism.
More from Kung Fu Monkey:
The commutation, rather than being some canny half-measure some are calling it, is actually worse than a pardon. The President's saying "Fine, fine, I agree a jury of his peers found him guilty of multiple counts of perjury and obstruction of justice, but I don't think he should be punished for that." He's not even saying that he believes Scooter's innocent. He just doesn't think people like Scooter should have to suffer just because they're guilty."
