The amount of HATE expressed here is truley disappointing.
When is the President going stop lying to the American people? If not some honesty, a little ethics and reality is long over due.
what did all you whiners do when Clinton was in office running the same game?
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales played loose with the U.S. Constitutional protections against government intrusions and justly resigned his position. He was given the benefit of the doubt numerous times, and in the end could no longer hide behind the President. In the end, his resignation proves that tyrrany will not be tolerated in the halls of American democracy. It is fitting that the man who wanted to snoop on innocent Americans in the name of fighting "terrorism" is no longer in a position to infringe on the liberties of the American citizenry. With his resignation, we all have greater freedom.
His job was to represent the people in America. He is an excellant example of the american dream gone astray. Too bad he and his boss could not face the truth, telling the truth to the american public, and allowing Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to complete the dream.
Worst AG in US history.
Completely incompetent, like his boss.
Al saw the light at last and did the right thing.Now if George and Dick would follow the country might get back on the right course.
I'm tired of nixonian checker-esque speeches!
God bless America and the little shrub for allowing
him to live the American dream?
How about “I can’t go any further on the backs of the
American people, I f--d this appointment up so
completely, I’m leaving with my tail between my legs”
THANK GOD he’s going!
Who do we have to THANK for putting these people in
Bush truly is the “Last Idiot Standing”
Gonzales "resignation" is long overdue. Only the threat of prosecution pushed the issue. As many others who have assisted this administration's actions against the principles, laws and Constitution of the US, Mr. Gonzalez has left office to avoid having to answer further questions and protect his buddy, the "president".
Hey Alberto-How about giving us back the civil liberties that you took away!
Bunch of liberal numbskulls on this board. Why do you beat on a such a kind, ethical person?
Also, has William Jefferson been asked to quit yet? He had $90k in his freezer.
I agree, Bush seems to use these moments as a diversion to take care of other plans. We will see how the September Report turns out and maybe find out how things are really going for this nation. Carl Rove and Gonzales stepping aside might be just enough to signal the Bush administration is coming to an end. All the lies is enough to make anyone sick, even die-hard republicans. Things are changing people need to understand that.
He shouldn't have been allowed to resign-he should have been fired! Bush's handling of this country for the last 8 years has been appalling to say the least. The government is not for "We the People" but for them that serve..pres...congress...senate etc...Maybe we should have another Boston Tea Party...So corrupt is our government...
gonzalez was a lying punk, just like bush.
It's about time. If he was honest and told the "whole" truth he would still be there....
He's part of the problem in this administration
Thanks to the media it wont be long before you liberals get what you want, another Democrat in the White House. Then everything and everyone will be happy as can be – NOT. Let me paint a picture for you!! Democrat in the white house equal terrorist back on US soil. Democrat equal higher premiums on helth insurance. The list goes on and on.
It is about time. How much damage is one allowed to inflict upon our great nation before stepping aside and allowing someone to clean-up after them.
Sooooooo.....when do we get our third branch of government back?
GREAT! Unfortunately, nothing will change for the rest of Bush's term. Bush is truly above the law and knows it.
It is about time!
Now if only Bushwacker and Cheney would resign!
It's about time. However, in the grand scheme of things, I doubt that his replacement will be any better. He will still be part of this administration.
Its a shame that it took the first Hispanic American Attorney General of the US this long to take responsibility for his actions. Maybe the next time we have the opportunity to serve our country, we will be honest to the people we serve and with oneself.
America gained today when Gonzales called it quits, we will gain more on Sept. 18, 2007. We maybe can get a person that is honest, not a lackey and can remember what he did yesterday.
It is sad when we have people with so much authority that has memory problems.
just another in the train wreck of this administration – liars, thefts and cheats – simply said
Good riddance. Another lying Bush cronie bites the dust. Next impeachment!
