2. They are all drunk with power.
This has been going on too long. It's time to put all the neocons behind bars.

4. Wolfie is threatening to 'sing like a bird' if he loses his job..
aha! The Bush Administration is between the rock and the hard place.

Keep the pressure on Wolfie, he will be the GOP's Judas and the biggest whistle-blower in the Nation's history!

3. I cannot understand why Bush lets him continue.
The combination of Wolfowitz and Gonzales showing no regard for rules and laws is bad enough. Bush tolerating it is amazing. "I'm the decider, and I've decided that corruption is okay."

The Republicans must be praying that they hold even 25% of their seats; the presidency seems totally out of the question.

6. Not hard to figure out-
Wolfie and Gonzales are the most knowledgeable of ALL this Administration's corruption and what led up to the plans and who was involved in the subversion of our government. Just think, if one or both of them receive immunity for spilling their guts on Bush and Cheney, we see those arrogant sob's in Federal Prison fulfilling our lifelong dreams and wishes.

Now, that is something to think about- as a desirable remedy to healing the country.

9. What are the chances that a "vote of no confidence" in (neocon) Wolfowitz by the bank's board
would actually accomplish the goal of pressuring him to voluntarily resign?

(Or might the unintended result be Alberto-Gonzo-like: "I'll only go if the President asks me to resign." White House defends Wolfowitz

Is the biggest shareholder of the World Bank concerned that the EU wants the credibility of World Bank "reinstated"? Washington Post, May 15)
