Alberto Gonzalez is an "absolute legal giant" compared to Janet Reno
A caller on CSPAN just said that. He also said the investigations are a waste of time. I could agree with that statement. But calling Gonzalez a legal giant is just a bit over the top, IMO.

3. Did he explain why he thought that, or would that be too hard?

Do legal giants lie under oath?

5. To begin with, Gonzales had no criminal experience prior
to going to the WH as counsel and then AG. Reno was the Dade County District Attorney.

But then again, why argue with a RW nut that hasn't a clue what he's talking about. He's just another RW nut calling C-Span.

11. What do you mean Gonzales had no prior criminal experience?
Edited on Fri Jul-27-07 11:37 AM by Jack Rabbit
He was Bush's lawyer. That should have given him a lot of experience in crime.

9. The GOPig canned response will be

that impeachment is unnecessary since no *crime was committed.
