    While Democrats who are clearly in the wrong will never admit or even consider the prospect of resigning for their misdeeds, Republicans cave to pressure at the drop of an accusatory hat. The idiocy continues here. I wish Republicans would grow a spine and a will to fight political hacks like those who have been badgering Gonzalez.

    Well AMEN! It's about time and a little late at that. Maybe now we can have an Attorney General that might actually enforce the laws.

    Too little, too late. This administration has already caused so much damage to this great nation. Even with this crook out, they will continue tearing apart the fabric of the country as they serve themselves at our expense. Things will not change until they are all out of power.

    He should have been impeached and charged for all his criminal actions long ago. He should still be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. However, that doesn't mean much to this administration. Or to Congress, it would seem.

    You people need to re assess your priorities. At a time when the Attourney General of the United States is resigning, your banner is about a spoiled football player pleading guilty and the apologizing. Gosh what are you thinking?

    WONDERFUL -– It is about time. If only the others would own up to their mistakes and resign also! When the American workers makes mistakes and lies to employers they are fired immediately. The American people are the employers of our government. Did we forget this?

    I think that our Congress has lost sight as to whom they serve. It is the Presiden't perogative as to who serves him as an appointed official and I think there are too many other pressing matters facing this nation than the one that our Congress has spent this year focusing on. I think they all ought to try to remember who they serve and it not themselves as they have proven to the whole nation this entire year that that is what they all think. I am very disappointed, not in the fact that Gonzales left, but that the American people have allowed Congress to get to this place of "dictatorship" with our country.

    I am really just soooo done with this Bush Administration. None of them seem to be in touch with America anymore. What a complete waste these eight years have been.

    This truly should have happened much much sooner. He was not qualified to begin with, plus his inability to say No to the White House brought a lot of embarassment to us as a nation.

    It's about time. Gonzales has been a liability for this country, and a disgrace to the people who believe in the US justice system. Next in line... George Bush.

    everyone thought it was a good thing when ashcroft resigned. I think this is an admission of guilt of sorts, it will help, but I fear he will be replaced by someone worse
