After Tough Week, Gonzales Says He Remains Focused

Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales met privately with top members of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday to offer an olive branch, but he did not seem too happy about it.

Gonzales had agreed to let Congress limit his powers and interview Justice Department officials as part of an escalating battle over the firings of eight U.S. attorneys. He knew that another scandal on FBI abuses was about to break and that some GOP lawmakers were hinting that he was in over his head.

"What else do you want us to do?" the normally taciturn Gonzales asked in exasperation, according to several officials with knowledge of the meeting.

...

Gonzales, who has served Bush for 12 years in Texas and Washington, said in an interview that he remains "focused on my job."

"I don't have the luxury of being discouraged," Gonzales said. "I've got the kind of job where you can't do that."

1. "What else do you want us to do?"
Oh, I don't know, Gonzo. Protect and defend The Constitution and The Bill of Rights, especially the rights of American Citizens, your real employers, against unreasonable search and seizure? You know, your job?

You ain't the brightest bulb in God's little chandelier, are you, ese'? A little slow in the membrane, homes?

Only W and perhaps most of the GOP are members. The rest of us aren't allowed. We just get to pay the bills.

5. IMPEACH GONZALES seems the Daily Impeachment News theme today
Impeach Gonzales is what pops today in the world of Impeachment searches. Several great links here:

Mar. 11 Daily Impeachment News: post high crimes and misdemeanor news
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

The Daily Impeachment News thread is an idea being tested.
If the DU Community wants to have a daily thread like this, it will be obvious by your PARTICIPATION.

POST links to DU discussions, web articles, start the thread in the morning with a link to the previous thread and an article, kick only if buried, etc.
I'm not able to continue this daily activity beginning in a few days.
VOTE for this thread by participating.

6. Disgusting UPI piece -- written like something in the Sports section.
UPI (owned by Moon) isn't alone in their use of this tenor in their writing. Everything, from "news" pieces to the screaming pundits on TEE VEE, it's hardly distinguishable from WWF or "color commentary" during a football game.

In the meantime, the bush murder spree continues unabated.

7. Yeah, he remains focused all right
Focused on screwing the people.

And lil Al, what do I want you to do? Quit and take your a** lickin' bosses with ya back to TX. Better yet, go to MX, they like 'your kind' of gubmint there.

This ain't Kansas anymore folks - if these people thought they could get away with it, they would shoot first and ask questions later.

BTW, I think agent mike has my yahoo mail account today as I can't access it. Everything else on yahoo works...

12. In fact, Mexico doesn't like his kind of gubmint there.
Mexico elected a progressive and BushCo helped the wingnuts steal the election. The protests were huge. How did you manage to miss that?

10. Gonzales is the cancer on the presidency
Unfortunately, removing him won't be a total cure - but it will help the prognosis.
