AG serves Bush, not the United States

Mission Statement

To enforce the law and defend the interests of the United States according to the law; to ensure public safety against threats foreign and domestic; to provide federal leadership in preventing and controlling crime; to seek just punishment for those guilty of unlawful behavior; and to ensure fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans.

well...In spite of the fact that the Democratic Congress, with many Republican congressmen joining them have called for Gonzo's resignation, and "We The People" are calling for the impeachment of Duhbya ahd Chainey, Alberto is staying on like an univited guest a cold night. This unnacountable excuse for an attorney has done the same old "I can't remember trick' that the people in his department used in the Henry Waxman investigation of the outing of 8 attorneys. Gonzo is the head of the DOJ with 100+ people working under him. I would call this a position of some responsability, yet under questioning in congress he forgot the facts on over 70 occasions. We have the worst president in the history of our country, and now have the worst attorney general to match. But even worse than that is the fact that the vice president runs the whole show.
These crooks will never give an inch and must be removed from office. If it takes crowbars a pest control, then lets go that way. Our constitution, our freedom, our treasury, our diplomacy, our environmental concerns, and many things that we don't yet know about are at stake.

With fresh support from Bush, Gonzales says he's not quitting

Attorney general's critics concede he'll probably survive political storm

WASHINGTON // Bolstered by a fresh show of support from President Bush, Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales sought yesterday to move beyond calls for his resignation and lingering questions about his credibility after the firings of federal prosecutors.

Critics reluctantly conceded that Gonzales was likely to weather the political storm. But many scoffed at Bush's claim of having more confidence in his attorney general after Gonzales' Senate testimony last week that was filled with memory lapses.

Gonzales, speaking at a news conference about identity theft, said he was staying at the Justice Department. But he declined to say for how long.

"As long as I think that I can be effective and the president believes that I should continue to be at the head of the Department of Justice, I'll continue serving as the attorney general," Gonzales said.

He added: "Obviously, we'll be working with Congress to reassure them that we've identified that mistakes have been made here and we're taking steps to address them. But I can't just be focused on the U.S. attorneys situation."

His comments came a few hours after Bush described Gonzales as "an honest, honorable man in whom I have confidence."
