Sen. Collins breaks her silence on the US Attorneys scandal to tell the Associated Press the following:
"I do not think the attorney general has served the president well, but it is up to the president to decide on General Gonzales' continued tenure."Reading between the lines, the implicit point Collins is making here is that what happens in the executive branch is none of her business.
(Of course, several of her Republican colleagues have had no trouble calling for Gonzales' resignation.)
Interesting to know that, six years into the President's term, she still believes he deserves this kind of deference.
