Gotta run. . . .:smile:
Apparently August is the month to dump the dead weight. Bye Karl, bye Alberto. Now if it just worked for W.
Before you all begin to jumping up and down celebrating you might want yet to think on what the prospects are on who will replace him. It is a safe bet that no matter who it is the left will not like her or him.
I predicted this some months back. I'm glad he's gone, but I'm not sure that Chertoff will be a massive improvement, but any improvement at all is appreciated. My biggest concern is that he will carry a conflict of interest from his current post.
I imagine that there will be some blatant violations of law discovered, and Gonzo will escape prosecution on felony (maybe even treason) charges, simply because he is no longer in that position.
Personally, I think Gonzales needs to be in jail, for a long, long time.
no lets hope chertoff does not get confirmed..... he is as bad as gonasckass
Hardly surprising. The administration will most likely keep mum until they're forced to talk or something else leaks. 'tis the way of things at the moment.
I'll shed no tears, he screwed up, he didn't readily fess up to it, the public tends to get angry about that in our officials.
I wish I could feel excited about this resignation, but I have a feeling that Gonzales will show up for work on September 18 as usual. When questioned, he'll insist that he doesn't recall having resigned.
If Abu Gonzalez had any innate qualifications for the job beyond being a toady and a yes-man for the Bush family for decades, he failed to display them during his term as AG.
To the folks who say both parties are bad, that it doesn't matter which one you vote for, yadda yadda yadda, I ask:
If Arlen Specter were still the Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee instead of Patrick Leahy, would Gonzales (or Rove, for that matter) have resigned?
Great, now he's gonna be replaced by that Clement guy, who was involved in that Bong Hits 4 Jesus fiasco...
The Bush Administration is like a neocon hydra - cut one head off, and another one grows right back at the same place. Where's Hercules when you need him?
It's a rare pleasure to wake up to hearing some good news on the radio.
Who ever replaces him, if abybody in the admin has earned anything, will likely try to avoid controversy.
There is an excellent short list of a score unemployed former federal attorneys:biggrin1:.
It appears that you quoted me... I do say that both parties are corrupt and not deserving of any political power; I have never once said it doesn't matter which one you vote for.
As for Specter v. Leahy, I just don't know. What is the correct answer to your question?
I have only seen the speculations about Chertoff, none about Clement. Source, please? The whole "bong hits 4 jesus" debacle was just absolutely disgusting.
And for your comment about the hydra - I'm sending you a (brotherly, non-sexual) e-kiss on the cheek for that one.
You know what I think is so funny about that whole Bong Hits 4 Jesus issue? The religious right that usually sides with the president, sided with the kid in this case. Funny how the worm turns huh Burns1de?:biggrin1:
Sorry, forgot to link the source - here it is.
LOL, thanks. :up:
Good, but how about we go 5 for 5?
Don't forget Wolfowitz, from the World Bank.
Thanks for the link, burnie!
<sigh> I still want to know why Gonzo was never held accountable for his blatant lies (under oath) to the Congress during their investigations...
I'm guessing that's one of the reasons behind his resignation (and maybe that of Rover, too.) Assuming (probably correctly) that resignation prior to final determination of guilt will protect him (them) from prosecution.
Leahy could make trouble for Abu Gonzalez, and did. And that was a good thing. But I don't understand how Leahy's influence could have forced an unaccountable, non-office-holding advisor like Karl Rove to leave the White House. If Rove survived several subpeonas in the Plame affair, how did Leahy cause him succumb now? Can you elaborate?
It's about time! The only problem is these people resign only after they've caused far too much damage. But at least they're out.
