Former Prosecutor On Gonzales Resignation: ‘Administration Is Cutting Off Arms And Legs To Save Itself’

Elizabeth de la Vega Says ‘It Won’t Work,’ Calls Bush Statement ‘Shameless’…

Former federal prosecutor Elizabeth de la Vega, author of United States v. George W. Bush et al, sends us the following comments on the resignation of Alberto Gonzales…

“With the departures of Karl Rove, and now Alberto Gonzales, the administration is apparently cutting off its arms and legs to save itself. But this approach does not — and should not — work when the source of the disease is in the head, a fact that President Bush has vividly demonstrated this morning when he defiantly accused Congress of dragging Gonzales’s ‘good name through the mud.’ Having used Gonzales as the executioner of the administration’s unprecedented and shameful policies with regard to torture, illegal detention, and politicization of the Justice Department, the President now seeks to politicize Gonzales’s flight from the scene of the crime by blaming the Democrats. We can only hope that Congress will not be intimidated by this shameless, and very tiresome, refrain.”

Ditto. A fish rots from the head down.

UPDATE: One additional thought. Gonzales finally resigned once his potential impeachment by the Democrats seemed where all of this might be heading. We might suggest the same outcome — resignation — would be likely for George W. Bush and/or Dick Cheney, once they began to see impeachment as likely, giving them both the chance to claim they were being good guys by ‘stepping aside for the good of the country.’ What say we give them that out? Dems ought to reconsider their Constitutional duty of bringing accountability to the Executive Branch for the many demonstrated acts of High Crimes and Misdemeanors.

  3. Good afternoon, SQ.

    Have you all seen this?
    It doesn’t sound good. It looks like the war mongers are still on their path and Bush wants us all distracted. One can imagine what he or Cheney might have up their dirty sleeves..

    It isn’t like we are any Walter Cronkite’s or Edward R. Murrows. Personally…I’m here for the good company and enjoy helping to put the spotlight on the (*$&%#!)’s.

    Now as far as Darth & Duhboy go, I’ve gotta say that their time was up a long longgg time ago. It is now time for torches and pitchforks.

    As the youtube news man billyjoebob says, “Be a Bush whacker”… G:

  5. Hi Teak!

    No, I hadn’t seen that article. Thank you for posting the link.

    Yep, the warmongers are pushing for more war and that definitely doesn’t sound good at all!

    Hey thanks S-Q!

    I added a song that’s relevant to the situation that cornered dogs find themselves in….

    …and there seems to be no escape for Bush/Cheney!

    Next week the WH and their Media mouthpiece are planning a media blitz to ratchet up the case for war with Iran…

    The cornered dogs are planning to take us down with them into the pit of Armageddon…

    I have been saying for a long time now that Bush is going to attack this fall before Congress can stop him and it is imminent. Nothing else will matter then. Bush will have his way, watch!

  10. Thanks for adding the video GEF! 🙂

    Yes, they’re like cornered dogs and that is what makes them unpredictable!

    Yes, that’s the rumor I’ve been hearing too.
