    So? The President can and does receive advice from any adviser he chooses. Rove did not fire anyone, The President did so, as is his power, FURTHER all the Attorneys concerned had already served the 4 year term and were replaced for his second term. You dumb asses may want to actually read the law and the policy and the facts on who serves and who fires them.

    A President could fire the Federal prosecutors cause he had a bad dream, or he hiccuped once to many times, or, well for ANY reason. And the tired old claim that he fired these people for a specific case is simply not borne out by the reality of the office they hold, or the facts in these particular cases. You see numbnuts, the staffs of these Prosecutors are NOT appointed. They are hired by the Justice Department and do not serve at the pleasure of the President, what does that mean? Well retard, that means that all case files and decisions are instantly available to any NEW appointee, safe guarded by a permanent staff unaffected by political appointments.

    Well done gunny. This is little mroe than a pathetic attempt to distract the maddened crowd form the fact that increasingly any dem who wants to be reelected in 2010 better find something to do other than vote for Obama's worthless health care bill the impetus for which is generated entirely by fear mongering.

    The current system works just fine for 80 to 90% of the populace. So in order to help the other 10-20% we are going to screw the 80-90% and the left things we should all just line up and bend over. How ever loving charming.

    I think Rove's lies were writ large during these hearing. It remains to be seen if the special prosecutor in charge of the case will press criminal charges.

    In this case, as in so many others, it's the lying about it that brings you down.

    Its not a fad, its actually very common.

    This is one of those 'who cares' stories, a lot of people are 'out to get' Rove so it matters to them.

    The fact is, Chimpola could fire any of the attorneys he wanted for any reason, it didn't matter if someone else was egging him on to do it.

    Only Bush had the authority.

    That is why this is a 'who cares' deal, both sides always want to chop guys they believe aern't with the program.
