Remarks of Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales Announcing His Resignation

WASHINGTON, Aug. 27 /Standard Newswire/ -- The following text is the remarks of Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales announcing his resignation:


Thirteen years ago, I entered public service to make a positive difference in the lives of others.  During this time, I have traveled a remarkable journey from my home state of Texas to Washington, D.C., supported by the unwavering love and encouragement of my wife Rebecca and our sons Jared, Graham, and Gabriel.  Yesterday, I met with President Bush and informed him of my decision to conclude my government service as Attorney General of the United States, effective as of September 17, 2007.


Let me say that it has been one of my greatest privileges to lead the Department of Justice.  I have great admiration and respect for the men and women who work here.  I have made a point as Attorney General to personally meet as many of them as possible and today I want to again thank them for their service to our nation.  It is through their continued work that our country and our communities remain safe, that the rights and civil liberties of our citizens are protected and the hopes and dreams of all of our children are secured.


I often remind our fellow citizens that we live in the greatest country in the world and that I have lived the American dream.  Even my worst days as Attorney General have been better than my father’s best days.  Public service is honorable and noble, and I am profoundly grateful to President Bush for his friendship and for the many opportunities he has given me to serve the American people. 


Thank you and God bless America.
