Former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, who’s now teaching a class at Texas Tech University, offered students some advice in an article published today in the student newspaper.
“Dream big but be patient,” Gonzales told The Daily Toreador. “You never know when the next George W. Bush is going to come along and give you a once in a lifetime opportunity like he gave me, but you have to be patient.”
Gonzales resigned in September 2007 amid an uproar over allegations that the Bush White House fired U.S. Attorneys for political reasons. He was also portrayed in several books about the Bush administration as a rubber-stamp for controversial national security policies pushed by Vice President Dick Cheney and Cheney’s powerful chief of staff, David Addington, including illegal warrantless surveillance and torture.
