Bush’s Silly but Honest Response Re Gonzales

Yesterday, the Prez said, “The attorney general went up and gave a very candid assessment, and answered every question he could possibly answer, honestly answer.” Bush added that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales had “increased my confidence in his ability to do the job.” On March 14th, Bush said he wasn’t happy with the Justice Department’s explanation of the firings of eight federal prosecutors. He said Attorney General Gonzales “has got work to do” to repair his reputation on Capitol Hill. Gonzales said, “I don’t recall” or words to that effect over 60 times during his Congressional testimony last week. Does the president’s claim that he has renewed confidence in Gonzales mean that now he is happy with the Justice Department’s performance, happy that Gonzales has repaired his rep, and happy with Gonzales’s lame routine before the Senate Judiciary Committee? No. It means that the president is convinced Gonzales is a loyal Bushie and that as Attorney General he will continue to obey his masters. Does the president believe that his declaration of confidence in Gonzales will end the matter? Yes. George W. Bush has no doubt that he is all-powerful. And although George W. Bush may be delusional, grandiose and crazy as loon, he has been given no indication that his fascist regime won’t continue to prevail in the White House. So who is going to stop George W. Bush? You and me? Yes, as a matter of fact. The Bush administration serves at the pleasure of the American people. It's up to us.
