'Prosecutor-gate': Bush's Power Grab

‘Mistakes’ Made on Prosecutors, Gonzales Says

WASHINGTON, March 13 — Under criticism from lawmakers of both parties for the dismissals of federal prosecutors, Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales insisted Tuesday that he would not resign but said, “I acknowledge that mistakes were made here.”
The mea culpa came as Congressional Democrats, who are investigating whether the White House was meddling in Justice Department affairs for political reasons, demanded that President Bush and his chief political adviser, Karl Rove, explain their roles in the dismissals.
With Mr. Bush traveling in Mexico, the White House insisted that the president’s role had been minimal and laid the blame primarily on Harriet E. Miers, who was White House counsel when the prosecutors lost their jobs and who stepped down in January.
“The White House did not play a specific role in the list of the seven U.S. attorneys,” said Dan Bartlett, Mr. Bush’s counselor, referring to a Justice Department roster of those to be dismissed. But he said the White House, through Ms. Miers’s office, ultimately “signed off on the list.”
Bush is always conveniently somewhere else when the "shit hits the fan" isn't he? Bush had little to do with this yet he signed off on it, do we really look that stupid? I am so tired of being spoon fed Bush's bullshit! In My View of It, every disgusting and deceitful action lately has been at the hand of Bush and Cheney, with others taking the fall. When will these two be held accountable for their actions? Libby, these Attorneys, who is next on the Bush/Cheney hit list?
Anyone who dares to disagree with them, or doesn't cover-up their nasty little secrets, better watch their backs! This all started back in 2005 when Democrats tried to change voting laws to allow "some" felons the right to vote. Bush didn't like this because it jeopradized the GOP dream of near-permanent one-party.
