Democrats, they spent the week getting upset over the dismissal of eight U.S. attorneys by the Bush administration. Now, in just a minute we'll explain to you how the mainstream press has misrepresented this story. But for their part, liberals are convinced that the prosecutors were fired because of some sort of political retribution.
But here's the problem: there is little if any evidence of that. According to documents released by the administration, seven of the U.S. attorneys were fired because they weren't following administration enforcement policies or it messed up some cases in the past.
The 8th prosecutor, a U.S. attorney from New Mexico,David Iglesias, was replaced because there was someone else that the administration wanted to give that job. None of that was illegal, but you wouldn't know it listening to the liberal virile this week. Their hatred of all things George Bush runs so deep that they even have to manufacturer scandals where there aren't any.
And that's the "State of America" tonight.
