Yes, I’d have to say that the primary responsibility for the pending execution of Troy Davis rests with Barack Obama. Article II clearly establishes the president’s power to commute death sentences in the state of Georgia. Somewhere in the back. And, clearly, his use of the Bully Pulpit would have immense influence over the Republican majority on the Supreme Court.
…Also, Agence France-Presse: “Obama won’t act in Troy Davis execution case.” And do what?
…the Supreme Court has denied the stay request.
