I’ve been watching Attorney General Gonzales testify off and on all day. I am beginning to feel supremely sorry for him. He is getting eviscerated. Conservative Tom Coburn flat-out said he should resign. Jeff Sessions wasn’t easy on him. Arlen Specter ripped him. And those are his supposed allies.
The problem is, though, that he seems utterly clueless. I really believe he is no deliberate liar. I think even the Dems are starting to realize that his problem isn’t with honesty; it’s a major problem with cluelessness. He comes across like Dan Quayle in that first press conference after Bush named him as his running mate. I.e, just not up to the job.
I want to defend the guy. He seems like such an innocent. He’s just not on top of things.
But that’s a pretty bad situation for an AG in a time of war against Islamoterrorists.
Chris Cox or Michael Chertoff or Larry Thompson for AG, please…..
