Aides: Ashcroft Likely to Leave AG Post

55 minutes ago

Add to My Yahoo! White House - AP Cabinet & State

By CURT ANDERSON, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - Attorney General John Ashcroft (news - web sites) is likely to leave his post before the start of President Bush (news - web sites)'s second term, senior aides said Thursday.

Ashcroft, 62, is described as exhausted from leading the Justice Department (news - web sites) in fighting the domestic war on terrorism since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Stress was a factor in Ashcroft's health problems earlier this year that resulted in removal of his gall bladder.

Ashcroft is expected to resign before Bush's Jan. 20 inauguration, said aides who spoke only on condition of anonymity. They said there is a small chance he would stay on, at least for a short time, if Bush asked him.

The attorney general has not officially informed his staff of his future plans, spokesman Mark Corallo said.

At a news conference, Bush said he hasn't made any decisions about his Cabinet.

Ashcroft, a former two-term governor and senator from Missouri, has long been a favorite among Bush's base of religious conservatives. He also is a lightning rod for Democrats and other critics on issues ranging from the anti-terrorism Patriot Act, which expanded rules for eavesdropping, to abortion rights and gun control.

Names that have been floated in recent weeks as a possible replacement include Ashcroft's former deputy, Larry Thompson, who would become the first black attorney general. Others include Marc Racicot, who was Bush's campaign manager, and White House general counsel Alberto Gonzales, who would give Bush a notable Hispanic appointment.

Also sometimes mentioned is former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani (news - web sites), but his spokeswoman said he's not interested. "Rudy Giuliani is not taking John Ashcroft's job," Sunny Mindel said.

Mindel said Giuliani is committed to the success of his business and government consulting firm.

Giuliani, a former prosecutor, is considered a possible presidential contender in 2008. Those political aspirations could be hampered by the controversies inherent in the top Justice Department job.

My first thoughts too.  I hope he isn't a bigger Nazi...its possible but unlikely considering Ashcroft.

Maybe Ashcroft couldn't deal with being head chief of installing the new police state?? :grin:

If Bush wants to stand behind his pledge to be bipartisan, he should recruit Elliot Spitzer. The man's fucking amazing.

Or, even better, I'm sure there are many libertarians who would be perfect for the job.

Spitzer would definitely be an improvement over Ashcroft.

I think the caveman in the middle has just been confirmed for the
office of the Attorney General:



The Bush Administration was quoted as saying, "Attorney General
Bok will make a great addition to this administration and will
be the perfect fit for our policies that we are trying to pursue."


The head of the ACLU was quoted as saying, "At least he will
probably be better than Ashcroft."

The new Attorney General was quoted as saying, "Grrrr!!! Argh!!!
Ugghh!!!!".





Haha, just kidding. I thought the libbies on the board would get
a kick out of that.

better..ha

but I think you misquoted Bok, typical liberal spin. It's obvious he meant "Ugh, Grr, Growl, Grr, Grr and NOT ""Grrrr!!! Argh!!! Ugghh!!!!". "

And it was.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers
