    Nope. Only that the hypocracy on your part is clear.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    This is the post we're discussing:

    Actually, I saw a good portion of it. I also saw good portions of the times Antonio Gonzales testified under the bush administration. It's amazing how much more forthcoming Holder and the Obama administration were. I didn't see him claim "I don't recall" a single time. I think this program was screwed up and not handled well but why you think that means he needs to resign or why that means he's lying I don't know. I'm guessing it's just partisan politics on your part.

    If someone does something you consider wrong, but gets away with it. Does that now make it ok because the wrong doer is now someone you support? And you have the absolute gall to call me a hypocrite?

    Get off the crack pipe dude.

    Nope. Nor have I argued ANYONE should get away with ANYTHING. I'm just noting how you've changed based on who is in office.

    The point was rather clear. Holder wasn't having trouble remembering. He may well be guilty of anythign from a crminal act to being just plain incompetent, but compared to Gonzales, who you supported, he was much more open. Unlike you, I'm fine with the law taking care of both of them.

    Holder will resign, there is no doubt.

    Gonzales is out. Let's focus on the here and now shall we?

    Until Holder is out, and then you can dismiss a republican doing the same type of ****. I know, I know.

    But that's the point.

    No he won't. It was a screw up, but they had good intentions and it doesn't appear that any laws were broken.

    When they say they won't resign, they ultimately do.

    Now that's true. He very well might.
