This is a great example of how a statement can mislead without many calling it an outright lie. Of course when entering office George W Bush fired all his US attourneys as did Reagan and Clinton. Often many are then rehired.
What was unusual with Bush was that he fired the US attourneys that he had hired in the first place because they wouldn't perform illeagle acts for him. The firing of the big 8 didn't happen until the second term because the Attourney General in the first term Ashcroft just wouldn't break the law in such a blatant way.
I would suggest that the original poster simply get a more honest source for news. Perpetuating such mis-truths (I'm being kind) does nothing to advance understanding, or to stop the gross hijacking of our Justice system that has been publicly decried by people of all political stripes.

For anyone more interested in the USA (stands for United States Attourney) scandal, search out and read TPM Muckracker. They are the investigative online journalists who broke this story and brought down Gonzallezs. If we had a congress people would be doing perp walks.

Again, would love to get one of those knives someday.
Thank you very much for the kind words, its comments like that makes me go to lengths i do to make a higher quality knife. Id be tickled to work on a project with you.
As for the news babying Bush, i dunno what news you watched but wasnt the same news i watched, everyone is entiled to thier opinion , i fought for the right for you to have it and i respect it. Im not a super Bush supporter even less so the second term, i do have to agree, its some amazing the schooling he has how horrible a public speaker he is.
“You don’t need that” my loving wife stated flatly. Hovering near her, sporting goods catalog in hand, I tried to counter “But look Honey, it holds 2150 cubic inches of gear”, as I tried to give her my best loving look. “Nope, you do not need to carry more gear – you have several packs already… if one of them is not big enough, take two” she stated and then fell back to attacking her Sudoku puzzle. Sulking, I moved back to my side of the bed and continued thumbing through my...
