Alberto's first speaking engagement didn't go quite the way he would have liked, but it's not surprising that students protested the man who gave the President (his pal) a blank check when it comes to our civil liberties while also installing "torture" as an approved method of interrogation. Alberto is getting paid a boatload of cash (40K) to speak after disgracing his post as AG. Being a "movement conservative" is always a very profitable venture. And he took no questions from the audience.

The Alligator:

In his first appearance at a university since resigning in August, former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales was met at UF on Monday with a mixture of cheers, boos and scattered interruptions by protesters, two of whom were arrested.
Gonzales, who resigned from his position after a controversial tenure, spoke to more than 800 people at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. During his prepared speech, Gonzales largely avoided discussing the controversies he faced in office, including his dismissal of nine U.S. attorneys.

Instead, he focused on encouraging students to consider a career in public service while describing his own experiences in that field.---Later, he ignored scattered jeers from the crowd to answer questions about his dismissal of the attorneys, the Geneva Convention and torture.
