You may have noticed there is very little rhetoric coming from my side of the political spectrum in defense of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. You shouldn’t be surprised. Gonzalez is a nice guy, but he was not our choice for Attorney General.
Most of us, on the right side of the political spectrum, thought then... and still do... that Gonzales was not strong enough for the job. We felt he was certainly not conservative enough! Turns out we were right… again!
Now, don’t misunderstand: We did not like what the democrat Congress did to Gonzales. And... it will be a cold day in hell before we forget it! Eventually the tables will turn and the democrats will pay a dear price for railroading Gonzales. (That is EXACTLY how we see it. The dems "railroaded" Gonzalas!) I am convinced the dems went looking for the weakest member in the Bush cabinet... and set out to destroy him. Gonzales was that weak link. And, like the bullies they are, the dems went after him with every thing in their arsenal and, of course, Gonzales folded like a tent.
So, Mr. Gonzales is gone... and the dems are preening before their beloved Mainstream Media cameras and microphones.
But, hold on!!! The door is now open for a real conservative to serve as Attorney General for the duration of the Bush term. I hope Bush will not be so dumb as to submit a nominee to the Senate for confirmation as the new Attorney General. Oh, NO! Just appoint an ACTING Attorney General, and… get one as conservative as it is possible to be… and rub the dems noses in their own mess for the next 17 months.
Sometimes things DO work out!
