Impeach Gonzalez

"On Thursday, Senator Arlen Specter, the senior Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, hinted very obliquely that perhaps Mr. Gonzales’s time was up. We’re not going to be oblique. Mr. Bush should dismiss Mr. Gonzales and finally appoint an attorney general who will use the job to enforce the law and defend the Constitution."

The rantings of the liberal blogosphere? Crazy talk by the fringe leftist wing of the Democratic Party? No, that's today's editorial page of the New York Times. Now, I know that certain "Anonymous" readers would argue that the Times is nothing but a liberal rag anyway. And that's fine, those fine patriots can enjoy getting constant Terror Alert updates while watching Fox News all day.

We understand that the simple fact that the nation's most important newspaper is calling for AG the AG to be let go doesn't mean that Bush is going to listen. He never does. Nevertheless, the fact that a senior Republican Senator like Arlen Specter is hinting that Gonzalez's removal is a possibility, along with the Times is calling for his dismissal, is significant.

As more and more citizens become aware of the multitude of current scandals involving the Department of Justice, Congress needs to be prepared to impeach Alberto Gonzalez and force Bush to replace him with someone both competent and willing to protect the Constitution.

Update: This morning on CBS’s Face the Nation, Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer (NY) called on Gonzalez to resign. Watch the video here.
