This morning, Michael Mukasey was officially sworn in as the 81st Attorney General of the United States. At the beginning of his remarks, President Bush thanked officials for joining him, including former Attorneys General John Ashcroft and Dick Thornburgh. Missing from the ceremony? Alberto Gonzales:

BUSH: Thank you all for coming. And thank you for making sure this good man not only made it to the floor of the Senate, but was confirmed.

I want to thank former Attorney General John Ashcroft, and welcome John, as well as former Attorney General Dick Thornburgh.

Thank you all for coming.

Watch it:

No word on whether Gonzales declined Bush’s invitation or was never invited.

Digg It!
