Gonzo walks away after what Bush describes as “months of unfair treatment”.
My heart bleeds. Really
“After months of unfair treatment that has created a harmful distraction at the Justice Department, Judge Gonzales decided to submit his resignation and I have accepted his decision,” Bush said from Texas, where he is vacationing.
…Bush denounced what he called “unfair treatment” that he said prevented Gonzales from adequately doing his job. He said the attorney general’s “good name was dragged through the mud for political reasons.”
Dragged through the mud for political purposes? I guess when you come from the Rove Perspective, where everything is political and everything is fair game, you see any criticism through the same lens: Your opponents could not possible mean what they say, they only say it to gain advantage as you do without hesitation whenever the opportunity arises. There is no substance to their criticisms, as there is none to your own. The treatment of your people is always “unfair”, as your treatment of other is always unfair as well.
What’s next for Gonzo? Private practice back in Texas? (read: Dollar Signs $$$ out the ass) That’s my bet. If he’s subpoenaed again by the Democrats in Congress, he’ll probably just claim “executive privilege” via fax and still make his tee time with Harriet at some posh West Texas resort.
Thanks for the memories, Gonzo. You really are a complete douche.
I find it strangely ironic that Bush is often credited with promoting women and minorities in his administration. If Harriet Meyers and Alberto Gonzales are any indication of the type of utterly incompetent and unquestionably loyal “Bushies” who are to be touted as Champions in the Struggle for Equal Rights; we’ve all taken a giant collective step backwards. These two are nothing anyone should aspire to be. They are, in a word, an embarrassment.by
