"Many conservatives burrowed within the Department of Justice have long complained that Gonzales has permitted career government employees and hold-overs from Democratic Administrations to remain in perches of power and thereby water down conservative directives from the top. As one conservative and Federalist Society member in the Justice Department told me: “This is definitely not Ronald Reagan’s Justice Department, I assure you. You have holdovers from Clinton calling the shots in a lot of places here.” "

Every day lately my respect for President Bush diminishes a little more.
Upon reading this today, it has diminished a lot. What a colossal waste.

Would that be the very same "career government employees" that John Ashcroft left in place because the U.S. Congress wouldn't let him fire them OR demote them?

Don't blame Gonzales for that.
