A Tale of Two Gonzalez[s]es

Alberto R. Gonzales was the Attorney General (Head of the US DOJ concerned with legal affairs and is considered to be the chief lawyer of the US government) from 2005 to 2007 under the Bush administration. He was forced to resign because his term was mired with controversies, including the firing of 9 US attorneys and the accusation of perjury.

In contrast, our very own DOJ Secretary Raul Gonzalez was bypassed by the CA nineteen times. But this did not deter him from keeping his post. I've lost count of the inane statements made by Raul, perjurious or not. In any case, every statement of Raul Gonzalez is always taken with a grain of salt, unless you're a hard-core administration loyalist or just plain gullible. As for firing, I don't think he will have any problems with that, as he even has the gall to recommend a shoot-to-kill against the RCBC suspects (Gonzalez caveat: that is not an official statement from the Department of JUSTICE, that is just his personal view). Clearly the word resign is not in Raul's vocabulary.

Spot the difference and weep.
