Gonzales is the latest embarassing resignation from the Bush administration
. Although it's long overdue, it just illustrates the crumbling of a dynasty led by the emperor with no clothes. How Gonzales lasted this long with his obvious 'memory lapses' to Congressional investigators over the firing of federal judges will be a serious black mark in a serious of black marks against the Bush administration. You gotta wonder just how an administration could fall so far? Corruption is an obvious answer. Bush and his cronies have always been corrupt. That's not surprising. But the arrogance is what I believe led them down this path to destruction. The belief that they could get away with anything has led us to a war that nobody wants, to a wanton disrespect for the middle and lower classes, to the cutting of social services based on a political agenda that is frankly mysoginist, and the idea that they are royalty above all the rest of us has indeed led this country to the worst international standing it has ever had. Thank you, Bush family!
According to the Associated Press:
Bush denounced what he called "unfair treatment" that he said prevented Gonzales from adequately doing his job. He said the attorney general's "good name was dragged through the mud for political reasons."
Though some Republicans echoed Bush's veiled slap at Democrats, Gonzales had few defenders left in Washington.
Many Republicans welcomed the departure of the embattled attorney general, some quietly and others publicly so.
Bush only defended Gonzales because Gonzales was a puppet, turning the Attorney General's office into a political joke. He was never, in my opinion, fit to run the nation's legal system. Whatever he's gone and I'm glad.
