An Isolated President

Two weeks earlier on Capitol Hill, there was a groundswell of Republican demands -- public and private -- that President Bush pardon Scooter Libby. Last week, as Alberto Gonzales came under withering Democratic fire, there were no public GOP declarations of support amid private predictions of the attorney general's demise.

Republican leaders in Congress, who asked not to be quoted by name, predicted early last week that Gonzales would fall because the Justice Department botched the firing of eight U.S. attorneys. By week's end, they stipulated that the president would not sack his longtime aide and that Gonzales would leave only on his own initiative. But there was still an ominous lack of congressional support for the attorney general.

Some new scandal in which Gonzales is implicated in which I read on prison planet.com. I can't vouchsafe for its veracity, but if there's a tiniest element of truth in it, Gonzales is finished.

Another link to the same story.

Another story about Kissinger's extradition to Urauguay being sought. I've read parts of Christopher Hitchen's "The Trial of Henry Kissinger" which makes allegations which, if untrue, would lead to Kissinger suing Hitchens for slander. He has not to this day done so.

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out. I'm glad the Dems are backing away from impeachment right now. I don't want the Presidency turning into a War of the Roses.

Hi Anthony, S-q, Angryman,

The Tide is high and the Bush administration is taking on a lot of water...

The H.M.S Bush Titanic has hit an Iceberg!

Hee hee hee!

S-Q said...

Hi GEF!

LMAO

The GOP are distancing themselves from the Neoconjobs...

That's good to see too! ;)

Maybe True Conservative GOPs are not all extinct.

The way the Neoconjobs spend money brings to mind the old tax and spend liberal mentality...

No Fiscal responsibilty for the Neoconjobs..

The HMS Bush may have hit an iceberg, but the good ol' guys in the Repig Party are simply still trying to rearrange the deck chairs.
