Presidential pardons seem to overused and highly political. And basically unfair to those in similar circumstances who don't have the political clout to get one.

Unfortunately, I'm afraid I must agree with you. Perhaps the turkey part might have been entertaining, if they'd had a better writter?!?

Well he is the president and I guess he can pardon whom ever he wants but i think this fella was stupid in killing so many animals with such a selfless act.

I am sure that there were no other pardons that should have been considered, like the West Memphis Three for example. At least in his eyes. This is just yet another example of his incredible brain power and distorted priorities. Sick.

Oh geez, are the politicians trying to lead us to believe that they are do-gooders by pardoning fowl? And leave up to good-ole Sarah Palin to be so self absorbed that she didn't notice the carnage behind her. Personally I feel bad for the turkeys that were pardoned and sent to Disneyland. Now the poor things get to be on display instead.

Leslie Owen Collier when released need only have a menial job as he is not able to see past his own nose...putting poison in hamburger and thinking that he is only murdering animals he has deemed as a nuisance? I don't believe that he is "living with the guilt" of having murdered innocent animals!

Everyone has a right to their own opinions. Everyone has freedom of speech BUT one should never attack another because they are giving their opinion of an article. In other words we should agree to disagree....calmly, repectfullly and without vulgarities. : )

My grandparents were german but that has what to do with the world trade center tell the famlies that lost love ones that they would or could not harm us so before you judge mr bush maybe you just might want to wait and see how mr. obama does when we are attacked by the musslem terrorist and it could be any where any time .I hope your family is not involved but if they are how loud will you yell for justice. put your self in the place of those famlies .

The man who put the poison out for the coyote probably had no idea it would "trickle down hill" and kill bald eagles and other animals. I am against doing what he did in the first place. However, everyone deserves a second chance and he has to live with what he did for the rest of his life.

Why is it that an article that is clearly suppose to be about a tradition that has been around for decades, that has been carried out be every president since Truman turned into a bunch of angry, hateful comments about the president? And EVERY PRESIDENT pardons people at the end of their term... Why can't people take the article for what it is and stop all the trash talk? The people on here that are trashing Bush got your wish, you get Obama in January, so why are you still complaining? You seem extremely immature to me.

I've always wondered about the turkey the President pardons. Is it the turkey the presidential family would have eaten on Thanksgiving, but instead they are pardoning it and are going vegetarian for the day? Or are they just pardoning a random turkey while the one they are having for dinner had already been killed and stuffed?
