Gonzales - Pathological Liar?

If you watched even a little of the so-called testimony this week by the United States of America Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales, you have no doubt found yourself asking the question, "does he really believe we are that stupid?" No I used his full title just so the impact of this little mans actions hit home. Remember, Gonzales is the guy who is in charge of prosecuting people who break the laws of the United States of America. His credibility should be beyond reproach.

Instead his performance was laughable at best and tragic at worst. He danced around straight answers so much that it seemed like an Abbot and Costello routine. I kept expecting him to answer, "who's on first".

What does it say about an administration when the man they pick to be the nation's lawyer can't give a straight answer to any question. What does it say about how far our country has fallen from any kind of respect in the world community when people who are such obvious liars represent us. The rest of the world sees our press and they know what goes on here, and they have figured out that we have been hijacked, we just don't know it.

Back here at home we fret over Lindsay Lohan and now Nichole Richy getting exposed as the stoned addicts they really are, but don't seem to care that the Attorney General is incapable of telling the truth. In the big picture, Nichole or Lindsay's mess won't make a bit of difference to anyone but their families and their agents. The Alberto Gonzales mess will make a difference in the lives of every American for a long time to come. How can you trust a government when its chief prosecutor seems to be a con man?
