    and no, the US attorneys are not political appointees, they are federal prosecutors. It's a little different than being appointed ambassador to Tahiti.

    Well, it's not clear from your post... are you for or against wasting the country's $$ trying to nail Rove with a perjury charge?

    I love nitpickers!

    You should stick with nitpicking...

    The United States Attorneys serve as the nation's principal litigators under the direction of the Attorney General. There are 93 United States Attorneys stationed throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands. United States Attorneys are appointed by, and serve at the discretion of, the President of the United States, with advice and consent of the United States Senate.

    Appointed by the President = Political Appointee

    Are you going to argue otherwise? Or save us all the time?

    Re: Rove agrees to be deposed under oath after three subpoenas

    Clinton's 'political appointees' at Justice...

    One of President Clinton’s very first official acts upon taking office in 1993 was to fire every United States attorney then serving — except one, Michael Chertoff, now Homeland Security secretary but then U.S. attorney for the District of New Jersey, who was kept on only because a powerful New Jersey Democrat, Sen. Bill Bradley, specifically requested his retention.

    Were the attorneys Clinton fired guilty of misconduct or incompetence? No. As a class they were able (and, it goes without saying, well-connected). Did he shove them aside to thwart corruption investigations into his own party? No. It was just politics, plain and simple.

    Patronage is the chief spoil of electoral war. For a dozen years, Republicans had been in control of the White House, and, therefore of the appointment of all U.S. attorneys. President Clinton, as was his right, wanted his party’s own people in. So he got rid of the Republican appointees and replaced them with, predominantly, Democrat appointees (or Republicans and Independents who were acceptable to Democrats).

    So now it's not OK to fire people you hire? What lame point are you trying to make here?
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Exactly!

    I don’t see the big deal here. Obviously the law exists only to be enforced at the pleasure of the president. If the people he hired ain’t pleasuring him, then he’s got every right to fire them and hire people that will do the job right. I swear, all that “objectively enforce the law” crap is outside the job description of a federal prosecutor and, if they swing that way, it is more of something they should be doing in their free time. It’s definitely not something they should be doing while they’re on the clock and the president has every right to fire them for trying to pull such shenanigans while taking the tax payers’ dollars.

    Perjury seems to be the "in" charge to nail someone on when they haven't been able to make their case for the real crime. I don't want Rove nailed for perjury.

    I want him nailed for using his position, and power, to conduct conspiracies for political purposes going after Seigelman (sp?), the Wilsons, etc.

    Tax evasion and hypocracy seem to be the "in" thing from people on the other side. BTW your signature is a lie.

    I recall when this broke and Leon Panetta was on CNN... before he could hook up with Clinton and his cronies, he said "if true it was over" for Clinton.

    Why the change by so many?

    My reasoning is such:

    I don't think lying under oath in a court of law is lame.

    I don't think a President denying an individual her right to a fair trial trivial.

    I don't think a President who's party introduced these laws to protect females from sexual predators should be exempted from them.

    Or do Democrats have special rights that protect him from lying in court under oath?

    Or protect their perverts, predators, and brothel owners?

    Was Sen. Packwood exempt?

    Clinton was on a path to destroy Lewinski... if not for Clinton leaving his Pumpy-diddly juice all over her dress... she'd be long destroyed. The Clintons started the smear campaign... campaign of personal destruction they are so masterful at... too bad it did not run for a few days more.
