1. Yes. Absolutely. Now........

Also - purge the DOJ. And perhaps there are some leftover slagging diehards in other departments of the Gov. that are not serving the correct cause.

5. Most political appointees are rolled over in the first year

The rest are civil servants. Slagging or not, the President and the political appointees cannot fire them at will.

2. I couldn't figure out what they were all still doing there for the last 4 years.

Seems like a no-brainer to dump them to me.

4. They serve at the pleasure of the President...if they are there, Obama wanted them there

With a new administration the Federal AGs are replaced almost in their entirety in the first 6 months. The President may decide to hold some over at his pleasure

17. That's what I meant.

Obama hung onto a lot of the old Bush lackeys, for reasons I couldn't fathom.

14. What better punishment?

Make them do their jobs to the letter of the law, while an unforgiving President circles above, waiting for any one of them to try to dip a hand into the corruption that placed them where they are today.

I'll bet the President makes sure they all get to prosecute Republican voter fraud cases this winter, too.

18. I think it's silly to imagine that they can be micro-managed to this level.

Unwilling prosecutors have a lot of ways of sabotaging a prosecution.

3. Obama

 

Should of never kept anyone from the Bush term...he tried to appear bipartisan in the beginning and kept a few of them. They were picked b/c they were loyal to Bush...how could anyone expect them to be loyal to a "black" democratic president. He needs to start laying heavy pipe in his second term.

6. You seem to be suggesting that politics got in the way

of them doing their jobs as lawyers for the government. It seems their boss disagrees with you.

Care to site examples?

Ask Gov. Don Siegelman.

You are not pushing that Fast and Furious malarkey?
