Political Quickie

The White House is blaming Harriet Miers for the firing of the US attorneys today. It is a good choice considering she was the Attorney General before Gonzalez was and she probably did want the people fired. I do have a few questions though now:

1. If Miers did do this and it was so wrong, why did Bush want her to be on the Supreme Court? They released E-mails yesterday implicating Miers in the firing, yet said she was the best qualified person to be on the Supreme Court. If they had these E-mails then they knew she was not qualified.

2. How many scandals are we supposed to forgive before we proclaim Bush the most incompetent President in U.S. history? No WMDs; increasing terrorism world-wide; Katrina; Walter Reed; Halliburton; election fraud; 9-11; immigration; Enron; and Plame-gate- and they still have two years left to serve.

More on this later…

Update- My mom caught a boo-boo I did. I am so embarrassed- not that she caught me, but that I made one in a political piece.
Harriet Miers was the White House Counsel and NOT the Attorney General.
Whoops =D

American Politic continues to go to hell in a hand basket. This is why I call myself an Irish Woman who is stuck in the U.S. by circumstance of birth. One day I intend to go home. LOL

Sorry, but I'll never forget those googly-eyed luuurve looks she used to give Bush during her brief rise/fall to stardom/public ridicule.

WOOO-ooooo, Harriet and Mr. Pres, sittin' in a tree...

Of course, I know, and she knows, that he only likes her as a scapegoat--er--friend. I meant friend, yeah?

This is so laughable it is almost unreal....Bill Clinton fired EVERY SINGLE OF THEM....HELLO, MCFLY....

Where was the outrage then? Why wasn't Chucky Schumer on every channel pissing his pants then? (except Fox, who would call his crap)....

C'mon people this is a non-story if I ever saw one, better comment on it fast because its already over....

P.S. Kan, we exopect you to write 'Alberto Gonzalez is Attorney General', 100 times on the chalk board!

Rex,
Clinton did as every other President did- fired them when he took office. This firing of them 7 years into a term is unheard of, but within his rights. The firing is not the problem, the cover up is. They lied to Congress about this...yet again. Congress is beyond pissed with even GOP Congressmen saying this is horrible that they lied to Congress.
The American people are very forgiving as long as you don't lie to them.

I know the attorney in Washington state was deep in the pocket of the democratic party...He should have investigated the descrepencies in the Govenor race and refused.....

These guys and gals are poitical appointees and if they have a different agenda then the current adminstration, buh bye....

And there is claim that AD Gonzalez, did not 'fully' disclose information to congress that has not been proven...Schumer is just squaking like an idiot again.....
