Deb, you spent many hours watching hearings of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees about the fired U.S. Attorney scandal and would like to live to see the day that we taxpayers learn what really happened, eh? And any curiousity 'bout Clinton's firing all 93 U.S. Attorneys in '93? Regarding the intern molester's failed attempt to provide some cover for House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dan Rostenkowski (D-Ill.), Presidential (then, and still?)media-member-spokesman George Stephanopoulos said it was not unusual for a president to ask for such resignations, although Republicans said presidents in the past have not asked for mass resignations, replacing them over a period of time as replacements were found.

Stephanopoulos said only those U.S. attorneys who are in the middle of trials will be allowed to continue working and said an interim appointee could capably pick up Stephens's investigation of the House Post Office scandal, with no serious disruption or political interference....


Hi Flower,

This is not an R vs. D thing. I don't understand why you treat it like you and I are rooting for different football teams. We're both taxpayers.

Fact: it's not unusual for a NEW president to fire ALL U.S. Attorneys so that he can appoint new ones.

What IS unprecedented is that Bush fired only 9 of them -- and it WASN'T when he was new or even at the beginning of his second term.

It was in 2006 -- after Duke Cunningham and some other big Rs were facing legal hot water.

Those are very important distinctions.


And watch as that important fact is never, ever acknowledged.

And watch.
And watch.
And watch.
