Gibson ignores Republican's call for Gonzales resignation

Reported by Chrish - March 15, 2007 -

John Gibson predictably chastised, Democrats, liberals, and far-lefties for their calls for US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to resign, but he conveniently neglected to mention Republican Senator John Sununu's call for him to be replaced.

As Lynn Sweet reports in the Sun-Times,

"Top Democrats are divided over whether Attorney General Alberto Gonzales should be forced to resign because of the botched firings of eight US attorneys.

Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin wants to reserve judgement until he gets Gonzales to testify before Congress under oath. “I want to hear his response.” Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Ct.) a presidential hopeful is not calling for his head. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nv.) and Sen.Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and White House contenders Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) say he should quit. Another 2008 candidate, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson said Gonzales should not be forced out. "No, that's the president's choice" Richardson said..."

And the AP reports
"Support from many Republicans had been muted, but there was no outright GOP call for his dismissal until now.

"I think the president should replace him," Sununu said in an interview with The Associated Press. "I think the attorney general should be fired."

Gibson, insisting this is "really" only about Bush-bashing, ultimately agreed that Gonzales should go, if only to stop attracting negative attention to the Bush administration. Gonzales has "become Brownie...Dubai Ports...Harriet Miers" and an "enemy fire target," and he will only open" the boss" and the party up to further "abuse." Bush, said Gibson, doesn't need any more "enemy fire;" he needs quiet and calm, so to protect Bush, Gonzales should go.
