Gonzales Has Little Republican Support

I'm not surprised Republicans are not rallying to the defense of Alberto Gonzales. They care more about 2008 than they do about Bush or Gonzales at this point. As Bob Dylan sang, "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows."

Sen. Charles Schumer said Tuesday on Hardball that Kyle Sampson is the fall guy, much like Scooter Libby. I think Gonzales may be the fall guy.

Bush is standing by him right now, but how much pressure can he take from those within his party's ranks. Is anyone but Karl Rove not expendable to him? Remember when he named Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court? Bush fought the opposition until it reached a peak. Then, she withdrew her nomination and he accepted it.

Smart money would say the same will happen to Gonzales. Neither Bush nor Gonzales will listen to the Democrats. But if Republicans join the call for his resignation, it may be a done deal. Stay tuned.

    don't count karl IN forever.

    he's in this up to his greasy little eyeballs.

    he may have to go, too.

    there can't be much love for him among republicans throughout the country.

    after all, he's the architect of the destruction of everything republicans has worked for in national politics from 1980 to 2000.
