What took so long?
It never ceases to amaze me how politicians, sports people, etc will continue to say they have done nothing wrong and then end up doing what they should have done when the problems surfaced. Gonzales should have been gone a while ago.
To me they all end up looking like selfish idiots.
Too bad his "Commander In Chief" doesn't follow suit.
Another piece of GW crap finally gone!
Gonzales should have resigned months ago, instead of staying on to create even more problems and more avenues for investigation every time he opened his mouth. No one really benefits from his departure; it's too little, too late, and does nothing to undo the harm he caused to the DoJ as an impartial arbiter of justice. We can pretty much count on Bush appointing someone with similar partisan credentials and personal loyalty to ensure that the politicization of the DoJ continues unabated.
It's no suprise. Seems that most of the Bush administration jumps ship once they get caught. Hmmm. I wonder what other illegal activities they're up to today.
How many more of this president's staff members will resign under pressure? I doubt his replacement will be much better. Bush thinks he should be able to do whatever he wants, no matter what the Constitution says.
I think it's about time. This is not about him being hispanic. It's about lying, and manipulating, and owning up to what you do.
Do they not have anything better to do with our time?! No wonder this 110th Congress has the worst ratings in history..
Never liked him anyway, so it's about time.
Good Riddance. Gonzales was either the most incompotent government official of all time, or a bold-faced liar and perjurer. Common sense tells me it was the latter, but either way he had no business serving as this country's attorney general.
what took so dang long?
This is very simple: as a conservative, you are only allowed to defend current administration policies if you can say- in the same breath- that you have no problem with President Hillary Clinton having the exact same level of power.
Too little too late for anyone's good. And isn't it amazing the way the RATS desert the ship???
Why is Mike Vick the headline on CNN and not this....to be honsest Vick was wrong but Gonzales affects HUMANS lives....not animals!
Thank God he's out. Now just two to go (Dick and George)
what took so long?
Good riddance to Alberto "Abu Ghraib" Gonzales. May we find a replacement who deeply and truly understands the sanctity of the law, the Constitution, human rights, and a civil society.
Will the last member of this corrupt administration to leave... please turn out the lights. The taxpayers really need to save some money... we have your 3.5 trillion dollar mistake to pay for.
It's about time. He was supposed to be looking out for the rights of the american people, instead he was the Bush's puppet, taking the rights of the american people away.
Would the last moron left turn out the lights and return the constitution?
It's too bad for him, really. Everything he did came straight from the White House, but when it all came home to roost they left him out to dry. This should teach everyone in Washington that personal loyalty has no place in modern politics. Gonzales should have been loyal to his office and the American people, not the White House political machine.
Alberto Gonzales finally gave up trying to keep up with all of the lies and deceit required by the Cheney administration. He was a small pawn in a big ugly game that has cost all Americans their self respect and pride in our country. Eight years of blundering has us all ready to resign.
It's a good thing that he is leaving. Let's hope for some positive change, however dim it may seem while under Bush/Cheney.
now the Dems will need to find something else to whine about!
