Talking Points Memo has an important point about the US Attorney firing scandal (“the Gonzales 8”): the White House has never denied that G.W. Bush participated in the decision.
And there's mounting evidence that he did.
Isn't it amazing that the press took a non-denial denial about Bush's direct involvement in the firing decision (“Anything’s possible … but I don’t think so.” — Tony Snow) and just let the matter drop? Shouldn't they be asking about this at every gaggle and press conference until they get a straight answer?
Of course GWB participated in the firings. Congress is just too chicken to go after him. I’d be surprised if they even nail Alberto.
