I beg to differ. It is quite evident Gonzalez is doing his little “I cannot recall” shuffle to hide an organized attempt by Karl Rove to get the Federal Attorneys to more aggressively prosecute Democrats. To say that such a view is mere speculation is perhaps technically correct at this point, but given the wealth of evidence in its favor, that speculation is rapidly transitioning to fact, which is why Republican legislators are jumping ship on Gonzo daily. Gonzalez is just the public face at this point, but the story leads back to the White House- hence, it is indeed a “scandal.”
Those who have been following the story closely, and not merely reading the spin offered by the Wall Street Journal editorial pages and blogs like this one, know how deep and broad the effort to politicize the attorneys’ agendas was. It went beyond “focus more on immigration” and was often in line with “bring charges against Democrats, even if you don’t have enough evidence, so we can put heat on them at election time.” This isn’t traditional politics; it is dishonest tampering.
You will notice no evidence here just speculation . We know none of the above is true because if it was it would have been headlines in the NYT and WP like “Bush U.S. Attorney’s out to get Democrats” if any kind of thread could have been put together to that effect. Kozelek is just speculating and proves the point of the initial Powerline post. Ther is no evidence Bush ever lied and there is no scandal but that doesn’t deter the Bush hater’s.
You notice Kozelek couldn’t site a scandal just a made up one from his head. It is much like Hillary impugning the President with no evidence regarding finding things (other than cigars and Whitewater documents or documents from Vince Foster’s safe) under rugs in the oval office. If there is any evidence of scandal or criminality with this administration the drive byes will go on a six week tear. Don’t get your hopes up Kozelek the MSM and Democrats have turned over every rock and made every innuendo. The administration always cooperates fully (thus Scooter’s downfall) and the MSM always end up shooting blanks. I just hope the rest of the country (minus the nut balls of course) is getting as tired of it as I am.
