    He didn't seem to be totally honest and candid in his statements. The question that needed answering was "Were these attorneys fired because they did not fully support and back the Bush admionistration?" There is plenty of anecdotal evidence that President Bush does not tolerate TOTAL support, from his Cabinet members to White House visitors. This is intolerable, and pretty much guarantees that Gonzoles would be 'dropped'. He was expendable and served as the scape goat. Now, we can get on with business as usual.

    What a relief – one of the most dangerous Attorney Generals we've ever had is relinquishing his power. This man showed no concern about the Bill of Rights, about appropriate balance of powers between the Branches of Government, and he was totally untruthful and untrustworthy. Its time the Justice Department got a leader rather than a syncophant.

    Here's your hat. Goodbye! Thank God he's gone for good. Now if only we could get rid of the last two.

    "There has been no wrongdoing here" if you ignor lying, refusal to cooperate with Congressional investigators, refusal of the White House to turn over evidence, contradictory sworn testimony, failure to know what the people who report to him are doing, and "can't recall" any relevent facts. This is the kind of person that Republicans want for their top law officer. Their best man for the job.
    Crediting Bush for no further attacks is nothing more than wishful thinking. Bush has not secured our border with Mexico. He has not secured our border with Canada. He strongly fought to turn port security over to an Arab firm until Democrats screamed. It was also the Democrats who finally overcame Bush's objection and passed improved port security. Get real.

    Who will be the next power-hungry Bush lap-dog to get their resume soiled?

    T0 Ed Waldschmidt, Fort Wayne, Indiana and others that think like him: Was there truly an attack by the Al Queda and not a black ops operation made to look like it was them to make it OK for us to go over there. It is certainly funny that government agents were ready to pick up all of the video of that day as quickly as possible.

    There is so much smoke an mirrors that is associated with this administration that no one really knows what they are up to other then filling the pockets of Bush, Cheney and all their cronies.

    Just take a minute to look at all the lies that have been told, not allegdly but proven facts.

    He should have been fired, it was nice of his buddies to allow him to resign on his own timetable. I am done wondering why our justice system stinks. From the very top they are a bunch of cheats and liars.
