For months we have heard from the media and the political pundits about Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and the firing of eight prosecutors.
Quite honestly, I am not sure how many people care about this subject.
Normally, when the media and political pundits work themselves up over an issue, you find that Americans also get worked up.
Now, I have only taken my own personal impromptu poll, so this is not scientific.
I have plenty of friends who are Democrats ranging from hard core to mild mannered voters. I also have some friends who call themselves independents.
Over the last month or so, I have asked many of these friends- "Should Attorney General Alberto Gonzales be fired?".
The number one answer when I asked this question was "Who is Alberto Gonzales?" Sigh!
I was surprised by a few hardcore Democrats who said "No, Bush can fire whomever he wants."
Of course, there who two hardcore Dems that exclaimed "Yes". When I asked why- one started bashing Bush over the Iraq war. The other one started ranting about the Patriot Act. Neither of them discussed the issue at hand, the eight procecuters that were actually fired.
As the media works itself into another tizzy today, I want to ask you folks.
Does America care about Alberto Gonzales and the eight fired prosecuters?
