    As a family of life-long Republican Christians from Orange County, CA, we do not subscribe to the lying, cheating and stealing that has gone on for both terms of this administration. We resent the false piety under which these criminals operate.

    What's new?

    Democrats demonized John Ashcroft.

    They demonize Alberto Gonzales.

    Already they are screaming about Chertoff.

    Fact is – NOTHING will ever satisfy the lunatic left unless the person had a (D) for democrat in front of their name.

    Michael Chertoff as Attorney General? This is the guy who, as head of the Department of Homeland INSECURITY, didn't even know of the horrendous conditions at the Superdome in New Orleans in the aftermath of Katrina. And now we make him head of the Department of INJUSTICE? The inmates are truly running the asylum.

    Let's do some inventory, here.
    This country has happily got rid of Rumsfield, Mike Brown, Karl Rove, Paul Wolfowitz and now Gonzales.
    Nice steps, all in the right direction.
    But we are still burdened with Cheney and Bush...

    His only problem was that he was confused about his job description. Instead of being the top law enforcement officer in our good country, he thought it was his job to enforce the President's policy. Huge error, poor judgment.

    The problem with our society today in North America is that we look for ways to crucify those who volunteer to serve us rather than ways to support them!!!!!!!!!!

    This is like peeling an onion, except the layers of corrupt Republicans has no end.

    PS – Will this jeopardize his receiving the Medal of Freedom?

    After raping the constitution, lying to congress and the american people, and politicizing a non partisan job, he got off Way too easy, with a nice fat pension and lifetime of health care. Should be in prison for 3 to 5.

    The only one who dragged his name “through the mud” was Alberto himself. He couldn't remember anything and failed to function as the countries top lawyer.

    Mr. Bushes comment shows out of touch he is with reality and the state of his denial. That's unfortunate for a sitting president of the United States, we demand better.

    Hard to believe it took so long and even more difficult to digest is Bush's comment about a nice guy doing a good job for the american public and having his name being dragged through
    the mud. This from the head mud slingger.....

    August 27, 2007 has been a very sad day in America and especially for minorities.

    Two role models that Hispanics and African Americans held in high esteem have officially fizzled out.

    Even worse, their departure from grace has fed racism among the "only whitey" crowd.

    The disregard that Gonzalez and Vick displayed for the rule of law will leave a multi-level stain on America for a long time.

    I think the politics has to stop. The President has the constitutional right to select his cabinet. The Senae should worry about more important things. I also think some changes should be made in order to facilitate a speedy selection on his replacement as well as for the future.

    First Rove, now Gonzales (finally)...Why don't the rest of them just do us the favor and follow suit! let's just get rid of the worst Administration this country has seen a year early. September 15th, March on Washington D.C. to IMPEACH this crap (if they don't all resign first!)

    Unbelievable. Clinton fires all the prosecutors and that was not political?? Buch fires 8 for performance issues and that is a national disaster. Where is the media on the hypocrisy of this. Kind of like Scooter Libby, not crime but he is dragged down. Congress approval is lower than the President's and where is the media on that?? Congress does nothing except spend time and money trying to make Bush look bad and you say nothing. Shameful.

    The white house lawyer who worked to legalize torture and was subsequently rewarded with the Attorney General's job is finally gone. Thank God. Now we can begin to try to restore the respect for American jurisprudence in the world that he and the rest of the Bush administration destroyed. He needs to be prosecuted and punished.
