Alberto Gonzales Resigns

Alberto Gonzales announced today that he is resigning as Attorney General effective September 17. Bush says his name was dragged in the mud for political reasons and I say that Bush did most of the dragging. Why did he resign now instead of earlier? Who knows and frankly don't care.

There is really only one person to blame and that's Gonzalez. He dragged his own name in the mud. Neither the people nor the politicians had to do it for him. His duty was to the United States of America. To the law. His duty was to uphold the Constitution of the United States. Instead he decided his duty was to uphold the will of the President of the United States. That was not his role, it was never supposed to be his role and the fact that he didn't know that is inexcusable. He is simply incompetent, par the course for an administration that hasn't gotten anything right in 6 years and counting. Good riddance to bad rubbish. May he exit the public stage forever.
