Kvatch Konsiders: Impeachment Baby Steps
By the way, we invited White House officials and Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee to defend Attorney General Gonzales ...We had no takers.Hey…Gonzales is a cabinet level officer. I'll admit that impeaching him may not be as satisfying as going after Cheney. But…you know…baby steps!
-- Chris Wallace, Fox News Sunday
If that weren't the case we would have been rid of PNAC's puppets by now. Bottom line- it's the REPUBLICANS that are a hindrance to rebuilding this country. Just saying.
Gonzales has always seemed out of his depth, an obvious first target. No point attacking when you know you can't win.
Chuck... It's a good point. Is the threshold for articles of impeachment 2/3? 3/5?
Let's Talk... We'll soon see where this goes...if anywhere. Gonzo certainly seems to be sticking where he is despite all his problems.
Let's get the ball rolling!!
Or stated more succinctly... "Let's roll!"
To be a brilliant lawyer, or a brilliant mind requires parsing nuances in an intricate web of logic, sort of like a chess player seeing several moves ahead.
I frankly don't think Gonzo has this kind of mind.
Also, if he ever did have abundant perspicacity, imagine the effect of spending years around the W' who eschews acutely competent aides and reduces complex planet consequential events to aw shucks and ayups.
Also, like Scooter, Gonzo has spent years now around the likes of W', Rove and Cheney where truth has been reduced to a discussion point anathematical by its nature to their causes.
If these guys had consciences and knew when they were lying, they would all probably have developed spastic tics by now.
I'd say "God help them, they know not what they do" but then children would stare and shun me to see my ears twirl and hear low exorcistical moaning erupting from my viscera d'veritude.
Cognitorex... Hmmm...not so sure. I believe that Gonzo is exactly the same as the impression he gives: Bush's man to the core. Does that mean that he's smart or dumb, not sure. He certainly seems to know on which side his bread is buttered.
Suzie-Q... Indeed. He must go. Will it require an impeachment? Not so sure. As I said to Scott, I think that Bu$hCo will eventually toss him to the dogs.
