Skip to comments.GOP Calls Mount For Gonzales Ouster (Repubs are eating their own)
Posted on 03/16/2007 2:08:24 AM PDT by nancyvideo
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., has joined a growing list of Republicans calling for the ouster of U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. "Even for Republicans this is a warning sign ... saying there needs to be a change," Rohrabacher told CBS News. "Maybe the president should have an attorney general who is less a personal friend and more professional in his approach."
Sens. Gordon Smith, R-Ore., and John Sununu, R-N.H., have also called for Gonzales to lose his job over the way the Justice Department handled the firing of eight U.S. Attorneys.

I can't get too upset about Bush when he has these spineless twerps on "his side" in Congress.
This is getting flipping insane.
I'm going to have to change my username. Every day it gets harder and harder to stand by this party of spineless, sniveling wimps!!!
Democrats = Evil Party
Republicans = Stupid Party. "Stupid is as stupid does." (Forrest Gump)
GOP learned nothing from 2006 elections. A political party divided against itself cannot stand.
Democrats circled the wagons in 1990's (1998-...) when "their" President flouted numerous laws, engaged in cover-up and obstructed the investigations. Republicans in Congress cannot be counted on supporting the President and administration that didn't break any laws and constantly under attack. No wonder Bush isn't seeking support from these ingrates whom he helped elect in previous elections. Stabbing your own in the back is no way to win elections - a "lesson" of 2006, and if it keeps going like this, a would-be "lesson" of 2008.
Good riddance, Bert.
The usual suspects who prostitute themselves for face time on TV.
Does anybody in DC know what the heck our laws say? We're surrounded by idiots folks!
the white house is rudderless, leaderless and clueless
The issue is not going after Gonzalez or any other Republican, it's that the Congressional Republicans rarely do it on their own. Instead, when the RATS and the MSM start the wall-to-wall campaign against the Republican target du jour, these so-called leaders of the country start acting like the geekiest high school nerd looking for acceptance from the cool kids.
I hope Alberto gets flushed. It will be karmic payback for not lifting a finger while Border Patrol agents Ramos and Compean got railroaded. F Gonzales and same for Johnny Sutton. I have no use for them
Little Alberto looks dazed and confused at press conferences. Another Bush crony who is way out of his league. I could do a better job standing on my head
I'd have no problem with Bush doing this. It's his call. He should at the same time, however, fire a few more US Attorneys, saying, "It's political. I don't like their priorities."
Hola Aberto! I'm having a great time packing lettuce in Mexico and promising your people a big fat amnesty! How do you like my new sweater. Some nice little Mexicans made it for me
Hey, I am not going to comment on the relative merits i.e. "yeah, but the dems do worse".
The fact is that Gonzales lied his rear end off about the whole affair. Maybe its not big deal, but he only brought it on himself.
This shouldn't be about revenge. I'm not all for Gonzales because of his membership in Aztlan but, come-on, if we want him out we shouldn't allow the Dems to set a precedent by ginning up a faux scandal.
I know the Donks get another scalp if they oust Alberto. But I don't care as long as he gets the boot. I will never forgive him for allowing the indictment of Ramos and Compean. Thus demoralizing all our Border Patrol agents.
So call it revenge.
BTW Check out wikipedia on Alberto. He admits 3 out of 4 of his grandparents were illegal aliens--->>>
These people are politically children, or should I say, young at mind?
"The Art of Opposition"
Despite the fact that up until now, regarding this case, it has been steady-on-the-wheel, principled, and right on the button. I agree with the earlier comment that it appears that Bush can't catch a break, and your comment shows why.
