Bush weighs in on Gonzales, attorney firings

Another day, another scandal.

A defiant President Bush vowed Tuesday to fight any effort by Congress to compel the testimony of top White House advisors about the firing of federal prosecutors, setting up a potential constitutional showdown and the first major direct confrontation with the new Democratic majority on Capitol Hill.

So when exactly did the American people become so accepting of the constant lying from our government? It's like we expect it so it doesn't bother us anymore. Maybe this country needs a few more terror attacks to get us off the fucking couch and back into running our own lives.

The president also defended embattled Atty. Gen. Alberto Gonzales and accused Democrats more broadly of trying to score "political points" rather than "gather facts" over the dismissal of eight United States attorneys. He offered instead to release all White House communications related to the issue and to allow the aides to be interviewed privately but not under oath, a proposal that Democrats rejected.

Wow Mr. Bush, just wow. It's like he's trying to set the example of how bad a presidency can go.

"There is no indication that anybody did anything improper," the president said in a brief statement in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House. "…We will not go along with a partisan fishing expedition aimed at honorable public servants."

So Iraq is burning, al-qaeda's on the rise in the tribal belt of Pakistan and there is more scandal in the White House. Now, honestly Amercia, how many of you watched American Idol this week. Idiots.
