USA Today reports:

Obama has issued just 64 pardons in his presidency — fewer than any president since James Garfield was assassinated in 1881.

This is all the more dramatic given that Garfield served only 200 days as president before being killed.

In contrast, here are some the past numbers of presidential pardons (not including the presidents with low numbers):

  • Thomas Jefferson 119
  • James Madison 196
  • James Monroe 419
  • John Quincy Adams 183
  • Andre Jackson 386
  • Martin Van Buren 168
  • John Tyler 209
  • James Polk 268
  • Millard Fillmore 170
  • Franklin Pierce 142
  • James Buchanan 150
  • Abraham Lincoln 343
  • Andrew Johnson 7,000
  • Ulysses S. Grant 1,332
  • Rutherford Hayes 893
  • Chester Arthur 337
  • Grover Cleveland 1,107
  • Benjamin Harrison 613
  • William McKinley 918
  • Teddy Roosevelt 981
  • William Taft 758
  • Woodrow Wilson 2,480
  • Warren Harding 800
  • Calvin Coolidge 1,545
  • Herbert Hoover 1,385
  • FDR 3,687
  • Harry Truman 2,044
  • Dwight Eisenhower 1,157
  • JFK 575
  • Lyndon Johnson 1,187
  • Richard Nixon 926

Not only is Obama less charitable in pardoning people than most presidents, but he has also prosecuted more whistleblowers than all other presidents combined.

Indeed, Obama has sentenced whistleblowers to 25 times the jail time of all prior U.S. presidentscombined.

In reality, Obama – even more than Bush or other presidents – is protecting criminal activity by prosecuting and harassing whistleblowers.

Indeed, Obama has prosecuted fewer financial crimes than President Reagan, Clinton or either of the Bush presidents.   As bad as the Bush administration was – they at least prosecuted the heads of Enron, Worldcom and some other white collar crooks. In contrast, Obama hasn’t prosecuted even one high-level Wall Street executive.

The man is short on compassion and long on brute force …
