Gonzales resigns

This is disappointing. I supported Gonzales, even throughout the firings of the prosecutors. The President reserves the right to fire the people he chooses- no explanation necessary- no matter how offended Congress is by this action.

There is nothing the Democrats could do about the firings by Gonzales, just like there was nothing the Republicans could do about Clinton's firing of prosecutors.

However, when Gonzales got in front of Congress and appeared to be attempting to cover up something, he came off as not telling the truth.

It is a shame, because he did not have to cover for anyone. There were some folks attempting to play politics and he got caught up in the game.

I am glad to see he has resigned, but I am disappointed that he put himself in a position where he had to resign.

WASHINGTON - Alberto Gonzales, the nation's first Hispanic attorney general, announced his resignation Monday, forced from the helm of the Justice Department after a wrenching standoff with congressional critics over his honesty and competence.
