Mr. Bush, We can appreciate your loyalty and friendship to Mr. Gonzales. But this is not personal and it is not about friendship. This is about who you will pick to the Supreme Court, and this is about our freedoms, about the preservation of life, and about the rule of law through originalist interpretation of the constitution. I'm happy for you that Gonzales is your friend. You are going to need to set that aside for a moment, and consider the will of the people. That is what we elected you for! Don't take it personal.
"Al Gonzales is a great friend of mine," Bush told USA Today. "When a friend gets attacked, I don't like it."
