Gonzalez&Co;‘s latest trick could be foiled in a check mate nano second if the Pat Leahy’s Committee would order a College IT kid an opportunity to cache it all the way back so we can finally bring the entire nation to the attention of Orwellian prophecy of “PRIVACY Rights” Yes, Privacy Rights is what’s at stake here, while R-S.C.,Sen Lindsey Graham may have it struck a chord: “It’s clear these fired U.S. Attorney’s had personality conflicts with bush&co;‘s people, and reasons were created to fire them”  Aside from Diebold, Fla & Ohio Elections, what makes anyone not believe there were gross violations of “Privacy Rights” violations here which signaled who can remain and who’s got to go. Please, even my tiny mind comprehends this.  “PRIVACY Rights, Privacy Rights, Intruder Alert.

It is bad enough that our decider-in-chief is clearly in over his head.
He has made matters far worse by appointing people who are clearly incompetent to positions of authority while making certain that those who were willing to speak truth to power were quickly dismissed.
Consider his record:
LARRY LINDSEY - dismissed for saying the war that George was so intent on having would cost 200 billion dollars while the administration line was that 2 billion was closer to the truth (That war has now cost as much as 500 billion and the final tab has yet to be tallied)
ERIC SHINSEKI - lost his job as a four star general after having correctly estimated that the number of troops needed would be many more than Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz were then touting
“HECK OF A JOB” BROWNIE - applauded by our out of the loop president after Brown royally screwed up the post Katrina response.
HARRIET MIERS - appointed to the Supreme Court with no qualifications other than her loyalty to Georgie. Even conservative supporters of Bush gagged on that one.
DONALD RUMSFELD - dismissed only after the Dems took over Congress, and tolerated for a continuous pattern of misteps in Iraq. John McCain called Rumsfeld the worst Secretary of Defense in history.
DICK CHENEY - the first, and possibly the worst choice W has ever made. Cheney has said many outlandish things, one can only wonder at his grip on reality. “We will be greeted with flowers”. “The insurgency is in its last throes” are only two. Cheney is probably even more contemptuous of Constitutional protections than the pres.
and now ALBERTO GONZALES - our attorney general still seems incapable of understanding that his loyalty in that job should be to our Constitution and the American people and not necessarily to Karl Rove and the Republican Party. Gonzales’ own chief of staff did everything short of calling Gonzales a liar.
What a record. What a pity!

Isn’t it ironic that they use a female spokesperson to actually admit to screwing up?

They mislead us on everything since the first day king George became emperror and not only missing e-mails. No surprise at all, but how come they still exist ?
