Bush administration was in the wrong

  • Follow Letters

Are you really saying the Bush administration did well to fire eight U.S. attorneys because of their reluctance to prosecute voter fraud? What kind of voter fraud are you talking about, and which planet are you from?

Did you mean the direct involvement of President Bush in the firing of attorney David Iglesias because it looked as if he wasn't going to indict Democrats before the 2004 elections? The firing of an attorney in Guam in 2002 because he started an investigation into the shenanigans ofcorrupt lobbyist Jack Abramhoff? The firing of attorney Carol Lam in San Diego after she jailed corrupt congressman Duke Cunningham and was opening an inquiry into other corrupt Republicans? Is that the kind of voter fraud you mean?Does that sound like these attorneys were too timid to take on crime?

Even you reported, although on Page 7A, that Senator John Sununu, a leading Republican, is calling for the firing of Attorney General Gonzales. You bring up the Clinton administration and its firing of ninety-three U.S. attorneys. Granted, that was also wrong. But two wrongs do not make a right, and so that is a very weak defense. ...

Since 911, this administration has worked to convince us that itneeds a mandate, in effect, to erode civil liberties, concentrate power in the executive branch, and blend the separation of church and state in order to protect our freedoms and national security.

Many, including President Bush,believe they are on a mission from God to counter the forces of evil whenever and wherever they deem fit.Agree with their schemesor risk being branded an anti-American traitor who wants this country to lose a war whichin actualitywas alost cause even before it began.

Americans need to realize that something far worse than voter fraud has been going on here, and that it has the Founding Fathers spinning in their graves. ...

To Patricia, Chief, RainH2O,

To Patricia, Chief, RainH2O, These postings should be for intelligent people to comunicate whether they agree or disagree
with the writer's opinion or the opinions of those that post. Most
of the postings from you Right Wingers are mostly name calling
and denigration. All you accomplish is to confrim what most of the rest of America believes, and that is: that the least educated in our society comes from the South.

Retarded Army, I do believe

Retarded Army, I do believe Ms Thomas was pointing out the fact that Ms Ellsworth, like Mr Cain who rants and raves on here, are only parroting what the DNC, Moveon.org or Democratunderground, all far left DIMocRAT supporters, vice anything from original thought. I find this to be common amongst DIMocRATS. I do not find Republicans parroting verbatim any thing Rush, Hannity or any other talk radio host say.

I still don't understand why

I still don't understand why this is even news. No matter why they were gotten rid of, whether for the nefarious reasons the writer has listed, or maybe because the Admin didn't like the way they dressed, it's still the Admin's call on whether they stay or go.

Critter, the attorney firing

Critter, the attorney firing is nothing more than a DIMocRAT maufactured issue. Pure DIMocRAT politics, but it seems the Bush Admin/Bush can't handle it and should get kicked in the butt over it. Bush and Gonzales should have merely stated that theFederal Prosecutors/attorneys serve at the pleasure of the President and just let the DIMs steam over nothing.

Jack, apparently you don't

Jack, apparently you don't read a lot of right-wing propoganda. Right-wingers such as yourself parrot Rush and his ilk as a matter of course. It's the rule, not the exception. Even your "clever" "DIMocRAT" insult is seen elsewhere.

Get over yourself - both sides regurgitate information everyday.

Anyone giving credence to the

Anyone giving credence to the subject of this letter is so far left of intelligent that they are hardly worth refering to. The disposal of these attorneys is the bussiness of the president and no one else. Any negative discussion of the subject is only a parroting of the left wing of our current congress. A political joust if you will. The fact that Bush and Gonzales are just standing still and not responding to this attack makes it pretty clear that Bush is about to change his Attorney General in for a new one. Bush plays lousy politics. He has no apparent ability to spot an attack and seems unwilling to respond until it is to late to make a difference. I don't understand his lack of reaction and I don't see how he is helping his party by taking all of these licks, but then he did whip the best the left had to offer in the last two elections he was in. Continuing to yell and call Bush names won't change his course and he has almost two more years in office. We all will just have to wait and see how the rest of his term plays out. In the meantime, the silly subject of this letter is totally meaningless.
