In the first place, I greatly respect President George W. Bush for nominating Alberto Gonzales to the post of attorney general. I also suspect that, despite the Left’s fervent babbling in favor of ethnic diversity, they are adamantly opposed to it when it emanates from the astonishingly diverse confines of the Bush 43 Administration. When it comes to suspecting any Republican but especially George W. Bush of laudable motives, the Left clearly doesn’t buy into the program.
Predictably, the presidential wannabes of the Democratic Party were quick to open their big fat yaps. Perhaps the most outrageous statement emanated from the frequently most inappropriate candidate, Barack Obama, who has a genius for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time:
"I have long believed that Alberto Gonzales subverted justice to promote a political agenda, and so I am pleased that he has finally resigned today. The President needs to nominate an Attorney General who will be the people's lawyer, not the President's lawyer, and in an Obama Administration that person will first and foremost defend and promote the rights and liberties enshrined in our Constitution," said Obama.
Clearly Senator Obama hasn't read the U.S. Constitution lately since "promoting" anything is never mentioned. And I have seen NO EVIDENCE that the departing Attorney General has ever failed to "preserve, protect and defend" the Constitution of the United States of America - as he was sworn to do. Every time he opens his mouth, Senator Obama clearly displays the lack of presidential gravitas that should be present in someone seeking our nation's highest office. He is - to put it bluntly - unqualified AND a buffoon! There are days when Dennis Kucinich appears more qualified - well, okay, I guess I shouldn't go THAT far!
I can only assume that, like all leftwing dumbkoffs, Senator Obama is riding the asinine hobby horse relating to the firing of 8 assistant U.S. attorneys – an action that the President had every right under law and under the Constitution to perform since THEY SERVE AT HIS PLEASURE. There was nary a peep out of the same people when then-new President Clinton fired EVERY SINGLE ONE of the U.S. attorneys when he took office.
Attorney General Gonzales’ biggest sins are that he is (a) a Republican (apparently he doesn’t know that he belongs to a voting class that is SUPPOSED to vote Democratic and consider itself victimized) and (b) was too naive to realize that his initial response to all the phony breast beating in the U.S. Senate should have been “It was our right to fire them for no reason or any reason so shut the hell up!”
On one of the blogs it has been suggested that President Bush determine to let the Solicitor General just quietly occupy the office for the duration, but that also, simply for grins and giggles President Bush should nominate Ann Coulter to the post – for the pleasure of watching Ann illuminate what a bunch of asinine dopes actually sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Can you truly imagine a confrontation between that pontificating gasbag Edward Moore Kennedy (D-Chivas) and Ann Coulter? T’would be delicious!
