    Now if only Bush and Cheney could take a hint from people under them and get the hell out of office. Maybe then this country could begin to rebuild itself into a respectable nation.

    One by one the rats are jumping off the sinking ship called Deceit!

    Shame on them all!

    Thanks for making the Justice Department a laughing stock! Don't let the door hit you on the way out, you witless hack!

    Why on earth isn't this headline news? It certainly beats Vick for importance.

    Gonzales is a disgrace, but it's his former boss who really should resign.

    I wonder what rock he and Rove will crawl under to make plans to sabatage the coming 08 elections? They are no through yet! Bush is their old buddy, so they will want to get back at those who have caused him trouble!

    I can't believe it took this long. I just wonder what this is distracting us from. Are we about to attack Iran now? Now it's time for the rest of the administration to resign or get impeached!

    Once W publicly stated that Al was not going to leave, it was only a matter of time before he did.

    Isn't that right Brownie?

    Good riddance to a lousy Attorney General – now perhaps Bush will pardon the two border patrol agents who were wrongly jailed with the connivance of
    Gonzales.

    All the Rats are now leaving the sinking ship. The Captain and his chief mate remain in their belief they will stay afloat.

    Another crook out of the White House. When will this government learn.

    It is about time. He is just another of Bush's inept cronies who leave office in disgrace.

    Thank God. This man has been an embarrassment to our nation. He personifies the problems of corruption in our political system. His commitment to "do anything regardless of the rule of law" politics have undermined the very nature of our democracy and hurt our legitimacy abroad.

    Its about time – he should have been escorted out in handcuffs with Karl Rove.

    This is LONG overdue. It sickens me, however, that he will escape any sort of prosecution for his repeated lies and total disregard for the laws he was supposed to uphold. The entire country will benefit from his departure.

    the timimg of his resignation is perfect. Gonzales can face the court, be found guily and still have plenty of tiime for a presidental pardon.

    Woo Hoo!

    Maybe the next AG will charge him with illegal wiretapping, for starters.

    I would be ecstatic except that I doubt he will be able to remember that he resigned and then will show up for work.

    I am deeply saddened and disappointed that Mr Gonzales resigned. Where is it written that a government worker cannot be fired. Anything that occurred in George W. Bush's administration led to more criticism.
    Bill Clinton had the worst situations occur in his administration, things that held us up as the laughingstock country in the world and yet he is praised as a terrific leader. Where is the justice and why is it that America has the shortest memory of all.

    Its about time. Chertoff is next and then Dick Cheney. Everyone is tired of this administration and they are beginning to feel the heat. Burn baby, BURN.

    This whole presidency is a joke. But the funny thing is I'll bet that the majority of Americans don't even care. Asham..

    It's about time! I'm counting the days until we dump the worst president in U.S. history.

    And its long about time he went Torture of innocents is not an American value, neither is spying on innocent people at home, and neither is trashing the Constitution. The big trouble now, is that Michael Chertoff, of all people, has been named as a possible replacement. Here is the man who was at the helm during the Katrina debacle, one of the worst exhibitions of incompetence and institutional racism courtesy of a government department in the U.S. By naming Chertoff for yet another prominent position, when he should have been either fired, or even charged with criminal negligence in connection with the needless deaths of 1800+ New Orleans residents, just illustrates how out of touch this president has become.
