White House

Oh crap.

Mr. Bush during yesterday's swearing-in of Torturer General Alberto Gonzales:

As Attorney General Gonzales begins his service, he will build on the outstanding work of Attorney General John Ashcroft.

Crap. Crap crap crap.

And in return, we must provide you [Gonzales] all the tools you need to do your job. And one of those tools is the Patriot Act, which has been vital to our success in tracking terrorists and disrupting their plans. Many key elements of the Patriot Act are now set to expire at the end of this year. We must not allow the passage of time or the illusion of safety to weaken our resolve in this new war. To protect the American people, Congress must promptly renew all provisions of the Patriot Act this year.
