Democrats playing "Get Bush" at the expense of the Constitution.

President Bush read Congress the riot act in a press conference that just finished. Rather than work on new legislation — fulfill those 100-hour promises of Grandma Pelosi (minimum wage is still $5.15 an hour) — congressional Democrats have decided to spend the next 2 years chasing rabbits down the holes in their quest for the liberal Secular Grail: Watergate.

Today’s scandal is that the Bush administration wants to replace 8 assistant attorney generals. Bush appointed them. He can fire them.

The media — which fails to keep track of that First 100 Hours promise by Pelosi — is (are) eating it up.

The fact is this administration went after Wall Street corruption that the incompetent Janet Reno sat on. The fact is this administration pursued congressional corruption regardless of party.

The fact is these deputies failed to pursue Harry Reid’s purchase and sale of federal lands, failed to track down Philadelphia election fraud and allowed this William Jefferson case to dangle in the wind.

I wanted Gonzales fired on March 8 because Gonzales bungled this. But as events unfolded, I see he was blind-sided.

Bush saw that too. He stood up to the congressional bullies and told them to end their fishing expedition.

This is a bass tournament as congressmen troll and troll.

Of course these firings were political. Their hirings were political. It is all political. That is why we vote.

We elected President Bush to be the chief executive of this government. He should be able to fire anyone.

Read the whole thing.
