    To be clear, removing the previous President's appointees has been, until now, a simple matter of process. George W. Bush fired Bill Clinton's U.S. Attorneys the day after he took office.

    As had every President in the modern era before that. What Obama has done by not issuing formal calls for resignations (this is how it is done) is to break long standing precedent.

    Put simply, just for you, it is standard practice for a new President of an opposing party to his predecessor to staff the USA offices with his own appointees directly after his inauguration.

    The question is why has Obama not done this and left in office known enemies of democracy, justice and the rule of law who can not be trusted to carry out their duties honestly as they are all toadies of the worst kind.

    I don't know what your problem is but you are doing Governor Siegelman a great disservice with your mis-placed scolding. Knock it off.
