Goodling Admits Her Partisan Hirings Were ‘Illegal’

"In her opening statement to the House Judiciary Committee today, Monica Goodling — the Justice Department’s former White House liaison — admitted that she had “taken inappropriate political considerations into account” while hiring career employees at the Department."

Karl Rove and AG Gonzales are the power players behind all this stuff. As people start getting burned around them, we will start to see a flood of fire extinguishers coming out and whistle blowers. Even Bush had to hire and fire several generals and other cabinet posts before he found just the right suck-ups. What we have is a dictator with spineless ninny minions lurking around the Executive Branch now.

and because of all these lies, I need to talk about how to fix it:

I have been watching sessions on C-SPAN and you should really hear how the Congress feels about the President. Its not just the Democrats, but some Republicans are also not very happy about what is going on. Yes, there are still some nut-job war mongers lingering around but not too many any more. (but then again, who isn't going to vote for more money for our troops so they don't starve).

I personally feel that we should have a separate funding process for ongoing operations, so our troops get clothes, bullet proof vests, bullets, food, etc. Then we have discussions on funding for extra war effort and time lines, etc, which I think will never get past the Congress. They take too much effort in all the ninnying and cowing to the President. Who is going to finally take some action and stop this crap from happening? We need Ron Paul in there.

Fixing a lot of our monetary policy, lobbying, corporatism, and the military industrial complex problems will go a long way to getting America back again. Ron Paul addresses most of these topics.

Will Republicans Destroy Themselves Before They Destroy America?

"As everyone except for a dwindling band of Bush supporters now knows, the US is in a terrible situation in Iraq from which it cannot extract itself. For Bush and Cheney, their own pride and delusion are more compelling than US casualties, the destruction of Iraq and its people, and the inflaming of sectarian strife and anti-American violence..."

All I need to say, is please start watching C-SPAN. I have been watching the "Today in Washington" shows, and the "Tonight in Washington" show. There is some really good dialogue going on here. You will find out that the Congress is really distressed about the President's actions and want things to change.

The legislative process is slow, but as long as good people keep on fighting change will happen.
