Sen. Schumer Leads the Charge Against AG Gonzales to Resign

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY)  is making a good deal of noise about US Attorney General Gonzales, “putting politics ahead of the law”.  Schumer’s complaint centered around a recent Justice Department report, which found the FBI improperly used subpoenas to gain information about US residents.  The Senator along with other Democrats has been critical of the handling of eight US Attorneys who were fired due to “political reasons”.  Also in today’s  statement  stated that the resignation of Gonzales’ Chief of Staff only adds heat to the fire.

Of course Sen. Schumer offered no comment about the 83 US Attorneys who were fired at the start of the Clinton administration.  Sen. Schumer, a truly odious partisan, is doing a public service to all who will take the time to look at the facts of this issue.  He is not ruled by what is in the interests of the people, but what he can do to exert pressure whether just or unjust on the Executive branch, serving as a lapdog to the DNC, rather than to the citizens of New York, and making headlines for himself. 

While there is always a need for oversight of any administration, perhaps the time has come has come for the Administration to stop playing the political game of “Four Corners” and aggressively engage in the hearings called by Congress, and start making issues of their own be known.  Perhaps a more in your face posturing of the record of the Clinton’s administration, and many others towards those who “Serve at the will of the President” need to be formulated.  Clearly the cause of the DNC is to mire all efforts of the Administration in hearings and in worthless non-binding resolutions.  One thing is certain, by allowing the Democratic Party to frame the issue to the mainstream media, the Bush Administration is in danger of losing the initiative and being unable to exercise governance.

  1. I’m not a Democrat…I’ve been making noise about this Neocon Rhino for a while as well…more Republicans should join the cause and restore credibility to a party which once enjoyed a SLIGHTLY better image amongst Americans in general.

    This is pre-attorney scandal material, I look to do a follow-up very soon. I was hoping to do one today titled, “Smug SOB Gonzales FIRED” but no dice thusfar.

  2. The charges about the eight fired attorneys are flimsy at best, however, given the current political climate it could go far.

    With regard to the credibility, I’m not sure if it is the infamous “RINOS” and I’ve found out that most think I’m one of them, or the hard right edge of the party. Certainly the shenanigans of the last Congress, which deserved to be voted out, didn’t help.
