93 Good...8 Bad

This whole "scandal" over the US Attorneys being fired is ridiculous. And then to have Hillary leading the charge is even crazier. So, I guess if President Bush had fired all 93 attorneys as Clinton did, it would have been ok, but being he only fired 8, then he is playing politics. You really have to love the double standard of the Dems!

The difference here is that he got rid of the 93 because their tenures were at the end. Georgie got rid of the 8 for purely political reasons because they didn't agree with them. This is worse then simply purging. Georgie has a reason which is self-centered and selfish. I am embarrassed to have such a mental midget in the WH.

Sorry Jenny but that is completely untrue. Some of the attorneys Clinton let go were only one or two years into their term and in the middle of some very big investigations (some of which just happened to be on some of Clinton's friends if you read the linked article) so please review your facts and don't just spit out trite attacks with no foundation.

Cajun, I am sorry but you are incorrect. I love how GOP'ers invent the truth to benefit themselves. Guess they are still the party of DeLay.

Ok...then show me proof. It's very easy to just say something, but where are the facts to back up your statement. I have my facts in the article linked, where are yours please? You need three things to back up your assertion.

1. Proof that the terms of every single one of the 93 being near their end.

2. Counter proof that firing all 93 attorneys was normal business when a new party takes power (which if you read the article linked you will see that neither Reagan or Carter did that, nor did Bush in 2001).

3. Proof that the firings did not benefit a single one of Clinton's friends or himself (also shown in the article linked).

leave the double-standard argument alone, CT. Both parties use a double-standard to advance their agendas. That's what politics is all about- complaining about the actions of the other party, taking power, and then having the other party make the same complaints about you.

Sorry Southpaw...in many instances you would be right but I can't leave it alone on this one as it is just too egregious to have Hillary out front on this when her own husband fired ALL of the attorneys in the first months of his presidency which neither Reagan or Carter did and now she is crying foul after 8 were fired seven years into Bush's presidency. If she had kept out of it, I doubt I would have posted on the topic, but that pushed my limit.

CT,

You are absolutely right on this one. More people should read cajuntiger than MSNBC or CNN, which keep pressing on for Gonzales and Rove to resign. Keep it up.

Thanks JohnnyB...just added your site to my blogroll.

Well when I was hired at MSNBC I was hired b/c I had a different view of the news than the typical employee there. It was very interesting to say the least. Unfortunately since our group was dissolved they have gone back further to the left than they were before. CNN is completely hopeless. Thank God for FoxNews and the blogosphere!!!

Looks like Jenny just accused you of lying, then couldn't respond when you asked her to prove that all 93 judges were at the end of their terms.

Come on Jenny, answer the questions.
