Gonzales seeks GOP support – gets little

AP
Excerpt
WASHINGTON – Desperate for support among fellow Republicans, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales faced grim prospects Friday after a bruising Senate hearing that produced one outright call for resignation and a fistful of invitations and hints to quit.

There were fresh calls from Democrats for Gonzales to step down. “The president should restore credibility to the office of the attorney general. Alberto Gonzales must resign,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (news, bio, voting record) of California.

Gonzales and other administration officials had hoped his appearance Thursday would produce a groundswell of support among Republicans, but there was little if any evidence of that.

Alone among the nine Republicans on the committee, Sen. Tom Coburn (news, bio, voting record) of Oklahoma called for Gonzales to resign.

Several other Republicans made plain their unhappiness.

Specter told Gonzales his description of events was “significantly if not totally at variance with the facts.”

“Why is your story changing?” Charles Grassley (news, bio, voting record) of Iowa asked at one point, citing differences between an earlier explanation and the hearing testimony.

Lindsey Graham (news, bio, voting record) of South Carolina, after hearing the attorney general’s account of the case, said, “Most of this is a stretch,” and added it seemed to him that some of those dismissed “just had personality conflicts with people in your office or the White House and (officials) just made up reasons to fire them.”

Sen. Jeff Sessions (news, bio, voting record) of Alabama expressed concern with Gonzales’ memory at the hearing. In an interview later, he went further. “I think it’s going to be difficult for him to be an effective leader,” he said.

HLs Take
Of course Bush still behind him. Because for Bush to call for Gonzalez to step down would mean that Bush would have to admit he made a mistake by putting old torture boy in there in the first place, and in Bush’s mind he has never made a mistake. He even said so one time when he couldn’t come up with a single thing he would have done differently during his Presidency given the chance. Besides Bush loves Torture and murder almost as much as Torture Boy. They are Sicko’s on a mission, and no amount of reason will make them see the light.


Insane McCain Stikes Again

That senile old fool. When asked what we should do about Iran he breaks into song. That tired old ditty “Bomb Iran” to the tune of “Barbara Ann” that I remember hearing back in ’79. Mccain must think he is one of The Beach Boys, except he’s far crazier then Brian Wilson ever was. This guy wants to be President. He’ll make Bush look like an efficient manager of the nation by comparison. Hey John, instead of running for President (which you have 0 chance of winning, maybe it’s time to retire to Florida or somthing. Check out the crooning of McCain
