Man, these lefties are in the midst of another breakdown arn’t they?
New unreleased e-mails from top administration officials show that the idea of firing all 93 U.S. attorneys was raised by White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove in early January 2005, indicating Rove was more involved in the plan than the White House previously acknowledged. The e-mails also show how Alberto Gonzales discussed the idea of firing the attorneys en masse while he was still White House counsel — weeks before he was confirmed as attorney general.
Oh my god, oh my god! The evil Rove is behind it all again….damn Bushitler and his evil empire!
Here is the WaPo:
The Justice Department advocated in early 2005 removing up to 20 percent of the nation’s U.S. attorneys whom it considered to be "underperforming" but retaining prosecutors who were "loyal Bushies," according to e-mails released by Justice late yesterday.
The three e-mails also show that presidential adviser Karl Rove asked the White House counsel’s office in early January 2005 whether it planned to proceed with a proposal to fire all 93 federal prosecutors. Officials said yesterday that Rove was opposed to that idea but wanted to know whether Justice planned to carry it out.
Oh, so let me get this straight. The Administration wanted prosecutors, political appointee’s, who were loyal to the Administration and somehow this is bad? Nevermind if past Administrations did the same thing. No, that has no bearing on the matter.
These people are freakin incredible.
Hell, the same ABC News report above also states:
On its face, the plan is not improper, inappropriate or even unusual: The president has the right to fire U.S. attorneys at any time, and presidents have done so when they took office.
That’s it in a nutshell. They can cry, wail, and stomp their feets like the immature little brats they are but they will get nowhere. The Administration fired those that needed to be fired, and it was their prerogative.
Meanwhile the MSM is busy hyping up this non-scandal to help their cohorts on the left stick another dagger into the Administration. Anything for Soro’s and company it seems. But as Jawa noticed, the attention paid by our MSM to these kind of stories does not go unnoticed by the American public:
The vast majority of American voters believe media bias is alive and well – 83% of likely voters said the media is biased in one direction or another, while just 11% believe the media doesn’t take political sides, a recent IPDI/Zogby Interactive poll shows.
The Institute for Politics, Democracy, and the Internet is based at George Washington University in Washington D.C.
Nearly two-thirds of those online respondents who detected bias in the media (64%) said the media leans left, while slightly more than a quarter of respondents (28%) said they see a conservative bias on their TV sets and in their column inches.
No bias on this story huh?
