    Looks like he was turning over the wrong rocks.

    Constitutionally, he has the absolute right to fire anyone for any or no reason. As did Bush, as did Clinton (who fired all the AG's when he came into office.)

    But I don't believe this is the kind of transparency folks thought they were voting for. The reason is pretty obvious, transparent even. It doesn't inspire confidence

    I agree, as President he can claim a loss of confidence and fire him. BUT where are all those liberals that keep claiming Bush should have been investigated and impeached for firing 8 DA's he had every right to fire, I might add AFTER they served their original 4 year term.

    Where is Jillian to tell us how this was all politically motivated and designed to protect the Democratic party or President. She made those claims when the Attorneys were fired. Were is ravi and the rest to whine about how he fired him just because he wouldn't do as he was told?

    Did they or did they NOT make the claims I just LISTED? I AM feed UP WITH THEIR LIES AND "OHH I DON'T REMEMBER THAT" CRAP.

    And then the absolute silence from the rest of you on the issue.

    Go ahead check out the Thread I started on Remembering and show me where any of you that know I am right have bothered to tell these liars they are lying.

    I am not saying you are wrong. It is one of the entertaining realities of these people to behave that way. Getting upset about it is like getting upset because you get wet when you have to work in the rain.

    I have to work from the reality that I am responsible for my behavior, and they are responsible for theirs. I defended Bush (not here, I wasn't here at the time) for sacking the attys. because he had every right to do so. 0bama also has every right to do so.

    There is a very transparent reason for his doing so, and it is a very good idea to point that out. There is so much dishonest about the man and his regime that there are not enough hours in a day to point them all out. So it is a good idea to remind folks what this guy is, and this is the reason we don't like him. (They like to invent other reasons, and it is very important to remind them of the reality rather than their fantasies.)

    So here is one more thing to bring up again in the summer of 2012. Don't forget it. But also don't forget that others watch us, and it is not good to copy the bad behavior we claim to detest, like changing principles when the shoe goes on the other foot.
