Bush Statement on Accountability Laughable
George W. Bush was asked what he would do if there is proof that Alberto Gonzales unethically fired U.S. Attorneys.
"If there's wrongdoing, it will be taken care of," The President told the White House Press Corp.
Bush should be challenged on that statement. His credibility on holding his own official accountable is in tatters. The President was asked what he would do if any members of his administration leaked Valerie Plame's name to the media.
"If there's a leak out of my administration, I want to know who it is," said the President. "And if the person has violated law, the person will be taken care of."
Lewis Scotter Libby resigned and was convicted of perjury. Karl Rove leaked to Bob Novak. No administration official involved in the Plame investigation lost their security clearance. Bush has since refused to answer questions about the leakers.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice...
