Thrilled and disgusted all at once, line em up! Who's next? ...Georgie then has the audacity to "scold us" for being mean to his boy. If people weren't dying as a result of George's arrogant stupidity this might be humorous; but it is beyond immoral. This is one small victory in a world of poo!
It just hit me after reading on of the comments that Mr. Obama would make a splendid AG.
Good riddance to Gonzales. Bush should hav hired someone who wasn't Mexican.
Hello? CNN? Are you kidding us with this question? All the President's men, going down one by one. Does this ring a bell at all? Let me help you out here – remember Watergate? Where the heck are Woodward and Bernstein anyway.
TO THE CANADIAN READER who is using this as a guage of what is "in the hearts of the American people"...please don't. There is a silent majority with some sense that sits back while these members of the Kumbaya Liberal Party rant and whine. Actually that is wrong. We don't sit back. We take care of the work of the nation while they complain and throw up road blocks.
Good riddance to Gonzales...
Unfortunately, it looks like hello to "Skeletor" Chertoff!
Good riddance. The man is a shameless liar. His resignation brings us one step closer towards redeeming the integrity of our government.
Good riddance! Way overdue. Now, if only his boss will resign!
Easy way out when you've been involved in the scandals and illegalities of this admin from the get go. Sad he isn't in jail with the rest of the liars and thieves. Oh wait...none of them are. I guess he did his job.
Talk about racism. Another man of color who was ultimatley given the job of whipping boy for the media and the world when Bush does something dumb, which is not a rare occasion. First Colon Powell then Gonzales. Condellezza is next.
Gonzales is another scapegoat of President Bush and Chaney just like the others were, I still believe that congress should look into impeachment of George W Bush and Chaney for getting us into Iraq in the first place......
Step one is now out of the way.
On to the bar complaints in Texas and D.C. He is ethically unfit to serve anywhere as an attorney. He has repeatedly violated his oath as an attorney and his oath of office as counsel to the President and as Attorney General. Clear violations of law, perjury in congressional testimony....... someone please file the bar complaints
The thing that makes Gonzales AND this administration so terrible is that not only do they lie, but they do it with impunity and give smug smiles when they're caught because in their minds they are above the laws of the country.
Of Course someone will always fall on the sword for a president they are loyal too. unfortunately, our politcal system is so broke , that we always need to blame and accuse for ills that are so deeply embedded to a system of Corruption. Facists I dont think so. We have tolerated this kind of status Quo for too long to just zero in on administrations (albeit Democrat and Republican) that the shooting gallery lines up to condemm , but offers no tangible solutions to change.
Good! Any normal president would have pressured for his resignation, but this idiot put his own corupt crony in this position and wanted to keep him there.... dispite the fact that he LIED to congress (I thought 'contempt of congress' was a charge one could be jailed for.. I guess not..)
Cheney will be smarter than his compadres. He'll stop his pacemaker when it is time to face up to his shame, and then make us pay Halliburton to put on his state funeral.
Adios weasel boy
Competence has never been a trademark of Bush appointees.
Loyalty and connections to the Bush family is the number one criteria.
This is just another family friend on a long list who couldn't do the job.
Partisanship didn't bring down Gonzales. Partisanship appointed him.
That's what you get when you don't pick the EUROPEAN LOOKING LATINS-THE HIGH SOCIAL CLASS ONES. This guy is a freakin-CHOLLO!
Bush new what he was doing when he 'hired' this GUY.
Good riddance to bad rubbish! From what I saw, Gonzales didn't do much except what his boss told him to do, regardless of the ethics or constitutionality behind it – perhaps appropriate for a sales clerk, not so much for the Attorney General of the United States. Gonzales just didn't display any leadership skills. Its pretty embarrassing to identify as a Republican these days....
A little bit too late. He should have been fired and prosecuted to the full extent of the law, Oh! wait he is with bushie, he won't be prosecuted. Now as a hispaninc, I am embarrased by Gonzalez, with all the superb choices of hispanics, bushie had to choose him.
Even when he was wahtever he was in Texas, he was an embarrasment to the hispanics.
King Bush is right – it is unfair that Gonzales' name was dragged through the mud. It would more fair if his own person experienced the same torture techniques that he so strongly advocated. Waterboarding, stripped naked and threatened with vicious dogs is much more fair.
It is about time this bozo quit. Looks like all the rats are jumping ship. Too bad congress didn't have the cojones to impeach the bum. Now perhaps they can turn to impeaching Bush and Cheney and really get rid of the traitors once and for all.
Support the Constitution! Impeach Bush and Cheney!
Why do I have the sneaking suspicion that all thses resignations are happening now so that if the *#@& hits the fan, Bush will still be in office to pardon them?
What did he take a job with ACLU?
