Proof Terrorism Works – Gonzales Resigns

From an elated Associated Press:

Officials say Gonzales has resigned

By JENNIFER LOVEN and LARA JAKES JORDAN

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales resigned, officials said Monday, ending a monthslong standoff with critics who questioned his honesty and competence at the helm of the Justice Department.

Republicans and Democrats alike had demanded his resignation over the botched handling of FBI terror investigations and the firings of U.S. attorneys, but President Bush had defiantly stood by his Texas friend until accepting his resignation Friday, according to senior administration officials who spoke on condition of anonymity…

“Better late than never,” said Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, summing up the response of many in Washington to Gonzales’ resignation.

Gonzales served more than two years as the nation’s first Hispanic attorney general…

As attorney general and earlier as White House counsel, Gonzales pushed for expanded presidential powers, including the eavesdropping authority. He drafted controversial rules for military war tribunals and sought to limit the legal rights of detainees at Guantanamo Bay — prompting lawsuits by civil libertarians who said the government was violating the Constitution in its pursuit of terrorists…

“Alberto Gonzales was never the right man for this job. He lacked independence, he lacked judgment, and he lacked the spine to say no to Karl Rove,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.

“This resignation is not the end of the story. Congress must get to the bottom of this mess and follow the facts where they lead, into the White House,” Reid warned

Is this really what we have come to? Are we really no longer a nation of laws? Are we all now at the mercy of the tinpot Torquemadas like Harry Reid?

Never mind that Mr. Gonzales has not done anything wrong. That after endless investigations and time-wasting hearings the Democrats cannot cite one law that he broke.

And never mind that Congress has no oversight over the executive branch, unless laws have been broken. We are no longer a nation of laws.

And, as the preposterous lies once again regurgitated in this article show, neither does the truth matter a whit.

If the DNC thugs like Harry Reid and their lackey media decide to take you out, you will be taken out. And you will be hounded for the rest of your life. 

(It’s surely no accident that Mr. Reid represents the mafia capital of the world.)

Of course this is yet another object lesson for any sensible person who has ever contemplated public service. Who in their right mind would put themselves through the DNC and their media lackeys’ meat grinder?

Which is precisely the warning the Democrats want to send. They have long since determined that every level of government will be occupied by their foot soldiers, no matter which party ostensibly wins in those things we call elections.

After all, it’s their turf.

This is the horse’s head in the bed to anyone who ever dared to think otherwise.
