    Poor Alberto – he should have just admitted to firing the district attorneys and that they were fired because they didn't like them. And then the case would have been closed. It doesn't matter why the President or his cabinet wanted them gone, they work at the leisure of the President and are subject to termination at any time for just about any reason that doesn't have to do with their race, creed, or religious preferences. The bottom line is don't LIE.

    No party Rep. or Dem. can benifit from
    willfully destroying the other party. Send the ignorant demacrats to Iraq,and Ted Kennedy to jail for life along with O.J.Simpson.

    I is coming far too late. Mr. Gonzales' attack on Habeas Corpus for the convenience of Mr. Bush should have been the end of his tenure.

    He lacks any moral compass and would argue whatever point of view he was told to. Instead of fulfilling the office as did Elliott Richardson, this hollow man, this partisan mummer worked hardest, not at following the law, but evading it.

    Good riddance...

    "Can someone explain to me what he did wrong?

    He fired some "at will" employees that needed to be fired…..

    I don't get it."

    When you get fired from your job because you don't agree with your bosses politics (not because he actually had a real reason to let you go) then please let us know how you feel about the situation.

    He should be sent to prison, however, he will just make the rounds of all the talk shows justifying his and bush's actions. Good riddance!!

    As A.G. Mr. Gonzalez seemed more interested in finding ways to abrogate the Constitution than defend it. Further, when asked about his actions by a committee to find some truth( a hard task these days it seems) he was stuck with a loss of memory that would get most people hospitalised for advanced Alsheimer Disease. As a toady for Mr. Bush He was most excellent though and his resignation comes far too late for the good of the U.S. I am Counting the days Mr. Bush.

    Another victim of the riduculous partisan game being played in Washington. Pelosi, Reid, Schumer, Kennedy, Leahy, Conyers, Clinton, Durbin, Emanuel on the extreme left with uncompromising, take no prisoners, lust for power at all costs wing vs. hmmmmmm let's see, Rush, Sean, Glen on the right? What happened to the ELECTED Republicans? They're standing around trying to be statemen while the pit bulls eat their lunch. Get rid of the pit bulls and lets get something done.

    Now if only we can get Bush and Cheney to resign. Gonzales was merely their poodle ready to lie, lie lie on their behalf. What a shameful disgrace they all are. It is embarrasing and infuriating at the same time. How could the American electorate have given these thugs a second term?

    Yes, Sam Wallace, from Bettendorf, Iowa. We're still talking about this. That's what one usually does with things that are important to our nation. Try not to confuse this with news about Paris Hilton.

    I see a lot of talk here about Constitution shredding, but can anyone identify one section of the Constitution that this administration violated?

    And the rats continue to jump the sinking ship called the Bush administration. It will be a glorious day when that ship is completely submerged. Hopefully the captian and first mate will go down with the ship. I doubt it though, that's not something cowards do.

    In many cases I detest the character assassination of your political enemies in D.C., but in this case the right thing was done to get him out of Government. He lied, demonstrably! He made the Justice Department totally ineffective and untrustworthy during his time as its head man.

    I truly do not believe he was qualified, intellectually or morally for this job.

    Attorney General Gonzalez was hounded out of office for political reasons, and polititians like Schumer and Leahy should ashamed of themselves and their so claims to serve the people. They only serve themselves and their ugly, dishonest political agendas which will stop at nothing. Hispanics everywhere should stand up and take notice of who did this, and remember not to vote Democratic in the next election.

    Instead of asking which PARTY is going to benefit from Gonzales how about the fact that the COUNTRY is going to benefit?

    The man should have never been put in the position he occupied, in the first place. He has neither the mental capacity or the character to hold the position he did in our government. A lackey is a lackey is a lackey.
