Federal Attorneys let go and Colin Powell's words really do apply!....

Sting like a Butterfly and Speak like a Leader, Congress can't hit the President if he Zings!  President Dubya Finally he is counter punching!  Guess he really likes A.G. Alberto Gonzales. This is such an absurd and manufactured scandal.  These Bush appointed Lawyers "serve at the Pleasure of the President as Colin Powell said repeatedly". From Business Week
  • Q: So the disputes are more over how you get to where you going, rather than where you're going?
    A: Yeah, I think that's fair....I always measure not the daily line, but who crosses the finish line. The fact of the matter is that the only one whose foreign policy counts, decision counts, and whose philosophy counts at the end of the day is the President. I feel quite satisfied with the advice that I and this department have given him.

    Q: There are some people outside of government who would desperately like to see you stay around in a possible second term...
    A: (Laughs) There are also some people on the outside who would definitely like to see me go...

    Q: ...if only to serve as a counterweight to some of the President's more hawkish advisers. Are there any circumstances under which you might re-up?
    A: I serve at the pleasure of the President, and that's something for the President and me to discuss. All I know is that notwithstanding what lots of people write, the President is satisfied with the performance of this department. We have transformed this department a great deal over the past 2-1/2 years with real transformation and not rhetoric. And it's reflected in the way the department is running and the way people feel about being in this department.....
Their staff stays and they are ones doing all the grunt work anyways.  President Clinton fired 92 of 93 and kept Chertoff...
  • Read former Federal Attorney Andrew McCarthy on this issue at NRO back in January 2007 on this issue
  • One of President Clinton's very first official acts upon taking office in 1993 was to fire every United States attorney then serving — except one, Michael Chertoff, now Homeland Security secretary but then U.S. attorney for the District of New Jersey, who was kept on only because a powerful New Jersey Democrat, Sen. Bill Bradley, specifically requested his retention.

    Were the attorneys Clinton fired guilty of misconduct or incompetence? No. As a class they were able (and, it goes without saying, well-connected). Did he shove them aside to thwart corruption investigations into his own party? No. It was just politics, plain and simple. 

This is just more nonesense that the Democrats engage in while the Jihadists plan their attacks during this ongoing War with Them.  so much for Pelosi's New Tone in Washington
