Fired U.S. Attorneys: Were There Others?
What's that new new car commercial? Oh, yeah. D'uh!
Could the U.S. Attorneys firing scandal be bigger than Americans know?
For months, the Bush administration has declined to directly answer a key question posed by Congress: were more top federal prosecutors targeted for dismissal beyond the nine that have been publicly identified?
glad you could join the rest of us ABC.
More telling is the first commenter to the ABC story/question:
Now let me get this straight. Unless you have a contract of employment, you work at the pleasure of the boss, right? So where is the problem. If you're not doing the job the way the boss wants it done, you get fired.
Lets forget the fact the Bill Clinton fired 93 US attorneys as soon as he took office for what remains as "undisclosed reasons". I don't remember Congress making an issue then like they are now.
I just don't get it. Wait, I know why.
It's because it was done by George Bush.
How silly of me to forget.

me obviously has no connection or understanding to the workings of either George W's administration or Congress. There was a very specific reason that the Founding Fathers put in place three branches of government. First to keep the others in check and second to prevent the nightmare of a imperial presidency that they had just fought against with the first George, the III.
If you want a real interesting take on what the ultimate fear is check out this website entry: Conquering the Drawbacks of Democracy. The moneyquote to watch for:
President Bush can fail in his duty to himself, his country, and his God, by becoming “ex-president” Bush or he can become “President-for-Life” Bush: the conqueror of Iraq, who brings sense to the Congress and sanity to the Supreme Court. Then who would be able to stop Bush from emulating Augustus Caesar and becoming ruler of the world? For only an America united under one ruler has the power to save humanity from the threat of a new Dark Age wrought by terrorists armed with nuclear weapons.
scary shit. huh?
isn't this what Hugo Chavez is trying to do down in Venezuela?
