No Support for the AG

Sorry for the long delay in posting.  I am in the process of moving to the liberal bastion of Massachusetts and have not touched the blog.  A lot has happened since my last post, but the news has been dominated in the last week by the tragedy at Virginia Tech.  I could rail against the lack of gun laws in this country that helped allow this to happen, but it seems to always fall on deaf ears, so I will not get into it.

 

Instead, I'll focus on pure political news and the barrage of lies told by Alberto Gonzales to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.  I lost track, but can someone tell my how many times the Attorney General claimed he could not recall information?  No wait, I found a source.  It was 71 times!!!  In case you're wondering, that is a classic phrase attorneys tell their clients to repeat in order to cover their arse.  It really is a blatant lie, but it's impossible to prove that a witness cannot remember specific events.

 

 The Senators chastised Gonzales, but they did little to actually remove him from his post.  In the end, the Judiciary Committee proved to be a weak, grandstanding group of old men.  Only six Republicans have asked for Alberto Gonzales to resign thus far despite many others condemning his actions.  Even Arlen Specter (R-PA), who grilled the AG intensely and seemed to not believe a word he said, refused to call for his resignation. 

 

This issue shows that the White House still has the GOP members in Congress under their thumb.  Time and time again, the Republicans have talked tough, but when push comes to shove, they do nothing (please note that the Democrats never do anything either). 

 

Once upon a time, the executive and legislative branches were considered separate branches of government, but those days are long gone.  Today, the White House exerts enormous pressure on Congress to bow to their wishes and for some reason, it continues to work.
