Hume: Gonzales was ‘simply a crony.’

CREDIT:

Fox News’s Brit Hume today on Attorney General Alberto Gonzales:

Gonzales was a man almost without fans in Washington at the end, because he was never much appreciated or accepted by the conservative base of the Republican party and the conservative activists in Washington. And he certainly wasn’t popular among the Democrats. He was simply a crony. And I don’t mean that word to sound any worse than it is, but that was the case here.

Watch it:
