You like me, you really like me!: President Bush gestures magnanimously while visiting with Bulgarian President Georgi Parvanov and his wife Zorka in Sofia. That’s Laura Bush on the right.
President Bush had a break from U.S. politics during his G-8 summit sojourn over the last week, but as he geared up for his return on Monday, the president threw down the gauntlet, challenging Democrats in Congress on their votes against Atty. Gen. Alberto Gonzales and pledging to push his immigration bill through the legislative process despite resistance.
New York Times:
Addressing reporters at a news conference, Mr. Bush said the vote on Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales—which he called “a political statement on a meaningless resolution”—would have no bearing on Mr. Gonzales’ future, no matter how it turns out.
“They can try to have their votes of no confidence, but it’s not going to determine—make the determination who serves in my government,” Mr. Bush said, adding, “This process has been drug out a long time, which says to me it’s political.”
