Politico: White House seeking Gonzales replacement

I find it curious that Republican blog-parrots keep scoffing at the idea that the U.S. attorneys firings represent any sort of scandal, at the same time the key players involved keep resigning in disgrace::

Republican officials operating at the behest of the White House have begun seeking a possible successor to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, whose support among GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill has collapsed, according to party sources familiar with the discussions.

[…] Republican sources also disclosed that it is now a virtual certainty that Deputy Attorney General Paul J. McNulty, whose incomplete and inaccurate congressional testimony about the prosecutors helped precipitate the crisis, will also resign shortly.

[…] “We have a crisis where there doesn’t need to be one, and now Democrats have an issue where they can open up the subpoena floodgates,” said an exasperated Republican aide. “Once these investigations start, there always ends up being a lot of messy collateral damage.”

“Messy collateral damage” because investigations like this tend to uncover the truth.

    Since Alberto had little experience in criminal law, perhaps he doesn’t know what it is to commit perjury.

    Maybe he thinks the president can absolve him.

    And here’s something else to add to Gonzo’s credibility:

    Alberto Gonzales’ sudden moment in the unflattering spotlight has prompted a new look at his background.
    (and it aint pretty)

    Gonzales’ father was arrested for drunken driving five times in 17 years, covering much of Gonzales’ childhood and adolescence. Pablo Gonzales died in an industrial accident in 1982 when Gonzales was at Harvard Law School.

    A younger brother, Rene Gonzales, died under mysterious circumstances in 1980. In 1991, the same year Alberto Gonzales became one of the first Hispanic partners at the white shoe Houston law firm of Vinson & Elkins, his younger sister Theresa pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine with intent to deliver. Nine years later, while Gonzales was on the Texas Supreme Court, his mother and another brother signed over their houses to a bail bondsman to raise bail for Theresa after she was charged with the same offense.

    Most of these details did not arise in his Senate confirmation hearings, even though they might reasonably have been thought to affect his views about crime, drug and alcohol policy, and sentencing — all issues overseen or influenced by an attorney general.

    Gonzales was never qualified for the post anyway. Technically, he might have the pretty pieces of heavy-stock embossed paper with legal degrees on them, but he lacked our American values. He claimed to believe in a “unitary executive”, blissfully ignoring the entire Vice-Presidency, and Senatorial powers of confirmation. He believed that torture could ever be possibly justified, and the fictional “unitary executive” could do so. Had he faced a real confirmation hearing — and what was he doing at such a thing, if the “unitary executive” had appointed him, anyway? — he would have received the treatment that similarly un-American Judge, Mr. Robert Bork, rightly got.

    He’d better have a good lawyer. He testified under oath that no political motive lurked behind the firing of McKay & co. Gonzales and Libby might find themselves showering together at Club Fed, real soon.

    I hope our friends, at Sound Pathetics and elsewhere, have cast-iron guts, and impressive powers of denial. Look what a mere ten weeks of Congressional oversight have wrought. How long before we see “Republicans for Impeachment”, desperate to have this administration gone before it delivers another Republican-free freshman class to our Congress?

    (Yes, the first paragraph was in the past tense. That was deliberate.)

    Too bad it also apparently blackened his heart.

    NBC News reported tonight that someone impersonating the Barack Obama campaign is running vicious attack ads against Hillary Clinton on the internet, and so far no one has been able to identify the perpetrators. However, as NBC reports, these are no amateur ads; they’re slick commercial productions that obviously cost a lot of money to make and distribute.

    You can watch the video clip of this segment by going to the MSNBC web site.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    I don’t believe the dirty tricks, lies, and “swiftboat” ads will be as effective this time around. The public has been educated and knows what to expect from the Dirty Right. In the end, these tactics will backfire, because decent people will be offended by them. And everyone in America now knows that it’s the Radical Right Wing that’s behind ALL the dirty tricks and election fraud.

    “We have a crisis where there doesn’t need to be one, and now Democrats have an issue where they can open up the subpoena floodgates,” said an exasperated Republican aide. “Once these investigations start, there always ends up being a lot of messy collateral damage.”

    This statement actually is not true — the manipulation of fedreal prosecutors not only was necessary to Rove’s strategy to create a permanent Republican majority, it was its centerpiece. Republicans, of course, are not a majority; their hard-core support comprises only about a third of the electorate. That’s why they need to commit election fraud and illegal voter suppression to sustain their “majority” status. The U.S. Attorney scandal is all about election fraud. There are two pieces to it — (1) committing election fraud on a massive scale, and (2) shifting the blame from guilty Republicans to innocent Democrats. It’s a brilliant concept — not only did they intend to steal elections, but also to blame the thefts on their opponents! It might have worked, too, if they hadn’t gotten ham-handed with a group of folks who value their professional reputations and integrity above party loyalty.

    The idea that someone might put something — anything — ahead of party loyalty apparently never occurred to Bush, Rove, and Gonzales. And that’s how it came undone.

    Liberal Dragon……….and so, in typical non-thinking liberal fashion, the sins of the father [ad nauseum]are his?
    what are you? simple?
    maybe you see him as a threat because he proves with his own life story that anyone can do anything [to quote betty macdonald] if they only try hard enough. it doesn’t take a whiny democrat with a welfare check to do it for them…….
    now, that would be a chilling message to every liberal out there.gosh….what if the PEEPS realized how they have been duped? just think of the ramifications of that!
    bill clinton dumped 93 attorneys in the same sort of thing. it is done all the time by almost every president.
    were was your silly bitching then?
    and as far as the assertion by goldy that we have a slo mo train wreck going on.yup, YOU DO. the american people have a good long time to see the dems for what they are….and it “ain’t pretty”……
    just watching hillary go after obama has been more than amusing, to say the least.

    hey rog…just a thought about the comment “….that someone impersonating the Barack Obama campaign……”
    if they don’t KNOW who is doing the video how can they assume that it isn’t obama? Hmmmmmm?
    maybe it is. after all he would be safe in the assumption that every little liberal moron out there would never believe that HE would do it, right?
    this is going to be a very very amusing election……..especially since the democrats with their “fear everything” mentality are now going to have their feet held to the fire! think about it. remember hillary’s now classic “the vast right-wing conspiracy “did it? [not her husband with an honesty and zipper problem, right? no way]
    and just where was her proof? that there was one, and they did it? did anyone ever ask her where she got this information? no, they did not. this is what the democrats have been pulling for years. the ads with the implication that george bush was responsible for the dragging death of a black man behind a truck. it was stupid, it was irresponsible….but they thought it would work.so they ran it.
    and now you people are bitching about nasty videos?
    oh, hang on to your hats kids…if this bothers you ,you are in for one rough ride.
    and BTW, i noticed that old brian never for even one moment paused to question if it could be obama’s campaign behind it. why was he so sure it couldn’t be? because it’s smarmy?
    i guess we know whose going to be NBC’s date for the prom don’t we?

    YOS LIBTARD, I here I though you were too busy collecting foodstamps to post.

    Regarding Goldy’s misinformation campaign. There are more conservatives that want to get rid of Gonzales than there are liberal. We have a different reason though. We believe he should have just said we want to replace them and the replaced them without all the drama and lying about there competence. We also believe that after he replaced them he should have told the hapless dems to fuckoff, I fired them and I have a right to fire them. On Michelle Malkins site there is a 60/40 poll in favor of replacing him because he was such a woos in how he treated the whole thing.

    So we agree for different reasons, Gonzoles should be replaced.

    Justice Department documents released.
    ABC News reports:
    “New e-mails released this evening by the Justice Department reveal the depth of White House involvement in the discussions to fire eight U.S. attorneys last year. The thousands of pages of e-mails suggest the White House was involved in the plan from the beginning.
    The e-mails detail conversations about attorneys targeted for dismissal. There are no e-mails from Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, who reportedly does not use e-mail, though the Justice Department says messages show some indication that Gonzales’ former chief of staff, D. Kyle Sampson, kept the attorney general apprised”
    The House Judiciary Committee website http://judiciary.house.gov/ is likely to have some of the emails in PDF form available tonight.

    We’re really getting sick of the tenacity with which you wingnuts tell these tendenitious lies. Of course the President can fire all of them; that’s not the point. This administration fired a select set of U.S. Attorneys, then publicly and repeatedly lied, to Congress, under oath, about why they were fired. (I thought “lying under oath” was teh most horribly horribly impeachable offense ever ever ever, not even ten years ago; now, to paraphrase some compulsive gambler, where’s the outrage?) It just so happens that one was fired whilst prosecuting associates of the felonious Rep. Randall Cunningham (R-Himself) ; others had not prosecuted Democrats in the weeks prior to an election. Most deliciously, the U.S. Attorney for Western Washington was fired because he refused to seat a grand jury in the “election fraud” case WHICH DIDN’T HAPPEN here in our 2004 Governor’s race. He was fired after the admitted political meddling of that most brilliant of Republican legal minds, Chris Vance. You local wingnuts, and your sick obsession with finding fraud where none had occurred, may just have sunk your allies in the Bush Administration. Heckuva job! Did we not warn all of you, repeatedly, about the consequences of telling such tall tales? Enjoy what you’ve created; there’s many, many more Congressional investigations a-comin’. Last wingnut standing by this administration will get the all-time booby prize.

    Bettylu Saltzman, a Chicago philanthropist, activist and veteran of dozens of political campaigns, recounts meeting Obama for the first time in 1992, well before he was a candidate for anything.

    “I was working for the Clinton campaign, putting constituencies together. He was working on a voter registration drive. He came into our campaign office. He was 30 years old,” she said. They talked for a while. Nothing exceptional happened. The next day, Saltzman recalls, she told a friend that she had just met the man who was going to be the first black president of the United States.

    This is not a unique reaction. Emil Jones Jr., president of the Illinois Senate and one of Obama’s mentors, tells the story of attending a downstate political dinner, a fish fry, where he, his driver and Obama were the only black faces in a crowd of 3,000.

    “Sitting across the table from me was a little old lady, said she was 86 years old,” Jones said. “After Barack spoke, she nudged me on the shoulder and said, ‘This young man is going to be president of the United States someday. I just hope I live long enough to vote for him.‘ ”

    Obama was unknown outside Illinois until he was chosen to deliver the keynote address at the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston. Watching that speech from the convention floor, Jones was astounded to discover tears rolling down his face. He was embarrassed, he said, until he turned and saw another member of the delegation crying too. “It’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen in 40 years in politics,” Jones said.

    HE HAS MY VOTE.

    @54 Hey rob, if you want to beat the shit out of those anarchists, go right ahead! I’ll even help you. But we can both save ourselves the trouble (and bruised paws) if we simply grab them and hand them over to some of the guys at Fort Lewis.

    Rob @ 50:

    From now on, whenever there’s going to be a conservative sponsored rally I’m going to attend as “one of them” with a “Conservatives against the Constitution” sign and Roger Rabbit is going to snap pictures.

    Then, that will PROVE with photographs that conservatives hate America and the Constitution. Right?
