This administration has been fighting two wars for years.

The external war is against Islamofascism and the internal war is against the Progrssives, Socialists and Marxists in the dhimmicratic party.

Losing either one means the end of America as we know it.

Gonzales needs to resign or be fired.

Why?

We can jail, bomb, and shoot foreign enemies but domestic enemies are off limits?

Why?

The rats wouldn't try this with Putin or Castro, they would be pushing up daisies.

Yes Sir,
and now that the surge is working, and the Russians (at least for now) have the Iranians squealing like stuck pigs for not not completing the nuke plants...
It's time to make body contact with the enemy within.

Why should Gonzales resign or be fired?

Simple - anyone who knows the inside skinny - knows that he is
completely over his head.

He is not an effective leader - he is a "personal lawyer" for GW.

The man has no business being where he is - it was the equivalent of nominating Harriett Myers for to the Supreme Court.

No one has any respect for his abilities.

Too bad you weren't there. Tony Snow could not handle it.

What has happened here is that we have lost the high ground. This needs to be transparent since it has gone this far.

I heard Leahy and Meredith Viera state that all the papers that were submitted had alot of 'redacted' parts. Leahy said they were useless that's why they want testimony.

Tony Snow was on CNN a few minutes ago interviewed by Soledad. She made mince meat out of him. He could not explain rationally why it is necessary to have those witnesses appear behind closed doors without a record of the conversation for the American public. This is a loser. At the end of the interview she said she had 3 people screaming in her ear that time is up and said 2 of those screaming were Tony's people. Assume what you want on that statement as I don't know what it means.

Gonzales needs to resign or be fired.


Yeah, that's the first time I've ever seen Snow on the verge of flustered. He was dancing for all he was worth, but in the end, he really didn't have a leg to stand on. I actually don't much care for Snow, but I really felt for the guy; it has to suck being put in the position of defending those who show little interest or ability in defending themselves.

Why not?

Because the President supports him and because firing Gonzales would only make the dems and the media all to happy. Frankly, since President Bush doesn't seem the type to fight tooth and nail for anything, I am surprised that he did not or has yet to fire Gonzales.

I almost crapped when he appointed Bill Clinton to work with his dad after the hurricane. Then claimed bill was like part of the family. I could hardly stop from puking.

Yea, that really got me too. It seems Bush's whole political career in Washington has been to constantly appease the democrats in the absurd hope that they will somehow reciprocate.

Why Bush is so dense on this point is beyond me. He has a rich history of being sh*t upon by the dims at every possible opportunity, no matter how many times he's extended the olive branch.

I hope and pray Bush will realize the folly of appeasement and let the dims have it with both barrels.

Dubya needs to stop acting like the President he thinks he should be and start acting like the President he should be.

It's amazing to me how this whole thing which should have been a non-issue from the get-go has deteriorated to such a point. Certainly, no one wins in this. The administration looks like a deer caught in the headlights once again, while the democrats look petty in attempting to manufacture any scandal they can once again.

Personally, I'm sick of the lot of 'em.

Gee. He started now?
He's had almost six years. He shoulda been a War President from 9/11/01 - with Democrats AND Republicans (and a Holy Terror for the Taliban and Al Qaeda). Instead we got "A Religion of Peace..."

Oh, well. They don't call Republicans "the Stupid Party" for nuthin'.

He was flustered to say the least. We don't need this.

What was your impression of the statement from Soladad regarding 3 people screaming in her ear regarding times up and she said 2 of those were Tony's people. Did you think the white house wanted him off the air?

I'm not sure. For starters, why would there be two of Tony's people in her ear as opposed to one? It would be safe to assume that those people would be part of the administration in some fashion. Does Tony have his own people? Who in the administration has the authority to step in and cut off an interview with the Press Secretary? I remember when one of Colin Powell's people tried to cut an interview short, but he put a stop to that. I don't know if Tony could do that (or want to in this particular case).

Regardless, it struck me as very odd. While Tony was certainly in an uncomfortable position, it certainly didn't seem to be so bad that the powers-that-be should try and cut it off in a panic.

"I question as to whether they are enablers or are the actual terrorists."

The "enablers" are the ones behind the curtain with a Latte in one hand and a fistful of dollars in the other. If that doesn't describe "actual terrorist" then look at the back of their heads and see the other face.

I would push the Jefferson bribe probe hard. Charge him. Look into other criminal doings such as the Reid Land deals. If they want to play hardball , play it.

By taking the low road, the whole government descends into chaos. And who will they blame, well the president of course, he's the leader of the country. This is exactly what the Dems want he would be playing right into their hands.

By taking the high road, Bush would preserve the dignity of the government and the scoundrels would be revealed by their outrageous behavior. Of course with the media covering for them it might take decades for the truth to come out and untold damage would be done to the country by then.

They've got Bush cornered and the calvary is not coming.

Honestly, I can't pretend to recall every action the President has taken, but other than his actions on September 11, 2001 and his initial resolve to fight abroad, it doesn't seem that he has shown much fight. "Wanna buy some wood?" was witty, though.

I just sent the White House and email:

Dear Mr. President,

The time has come to put aside your conciliatory nature. The time has come to defend and attack.

You have spoken often about our defense policy against terrorism: "we will stay on offense".

Why is this approach so lacking with your political policies? Sir - you must go on the offense - many of us
who are your strongest defenders are growing impatient with this constant "make nice" stance you take with the democrats and the media.

People respond to strength and leadership - you know that - remember when your approvals were at 75%? It wasn't because you offered to meet with terrorists and discuss things - it was when you told the world that America was coming.

If you want the troops to fight for you and this nation - you better show them you are just as much a fighter yourself.

Go out there and fight - please sir.

Everyone, including the NYPost has a firm grasp of the obvious except President Bush. That's deeply troubling. Bush will not take the offensive, he will not stand up to Congress, he will not fight for his military decisions and he doesn't stand up and fight for the support of our military. His silence on these topics is deafening. He hasn't defended or taken the attack to the enemy (Congress) in the past 6 years...no reason to believe he'll change. This is my problem with Bush, he's a total wimp.

Fight?
Absolutely.

But this particular aspect of the U.S. attorneys is likely not the right fight.

Executive branch people are subject to congressional subpeona for "any matter under inquiry" in ether house.

Congressional subpeona has been tested over and over since 1821 and congress has won every time.

Many so called scandals didn't start as true scandal - they grew when somebody decided to break the law to hide something.

I am concerned for the country on two points
1. That if the President orders his staff to not answer a congressional subpoena he may be committing a crime.
2. That this is pushing crucial issues to the back burner - like Iran, north Korea, the economy, immigration and Chavez.

Bush 41 and Bush 43 both have the same trait ... they both have a well deserved reputation for not quite grasping the severity of the issue at hand, in other words ... at times they appear to be clueless. GWB had better get a handle on the fact the 'Rats are out to destroy his Presidency ... he needs to start playing smash mouth football.

While I can certainly see your point, Bush has no choice but to fight back at this point. The country is already descending into 'chaos' with the Dems at the gavel in the Congress!

We forget that one of the main reasons for the Dems to be making this stink about the US attorneys is to protect their own from prosecution, ie Rockefeller, Reid, Jefferson, Berger, etc.

They think that by throwing up this latest nonsense(to muddy the waters), it puts them in a better position should indictments be handed down on their lads.

Bush has no choice but to fight back now. The dems and the media have lead a rather successful campaign for six years to 'criminalize' conservatism and the republican party and it is time for the Administration and all conservatives to fight back!!

End of rant...(grin)
