The man is a disgrace as a lawyer. An ethical lawyer tells his client what behavior is out of bounds, or illegal. A unethical lawyer advises his client how to wiggle out from under the law, and then makes flimsy excuses for his client in public. What's worse is that Gonzales is not merely a lawyer working for Bush, but an employee of the American people. Such a lawyer has then three obligations; the law, his client, and the good of the public. Gonzales has betrayed all but one of them, and even his advice to the President seems motivated more out of a desire to say whatever the President and his people want to here, which has gotten them where they are today.
That's a really good point. Perhaps we should put it that way to conservatives. Would you support a weasle like that trying to get a murderer or child molestor off the hook?
