Back a few months ago, beginning of the year, President Bush put out an order to fire several US attorneys. These positions serve at the leisure of the President and if he decides he doesn't want them any longer, they're gone. It's the benefit of being the head of the executive branch, that you get to pick and choose at least SOME of the people who work for you. President Clinton actually fired all 93 people in this positions during his term, so it shouldn't be that big a deal.
However, Dimiwitocrats, in their desperation to find something, anything, even if it's something that most citizens could give a flying rats ass about, to discredit the administration, are making a huge deal about this being politically motivated.
Well, no shit Sherlock. You figure that out all by yourself or did you have to have mommy spell it out for you.
All federally appointed positions are political. Duh. Of course these individuals were appointed through a politically motivated method. That's what happens when you WIN. You get to make appointments. And when you lose, you don't. Or in the Dimwitocrats case, you lose, you complain to the media and hope no one actually does any research.
Lucky for them, no one in the media is willing to question them.
