Bush urges politicians to 'rise above partisan politics'Posted: Updated:
WHITE HOUSE - Saying the American people expect their elected officials to "rise above partisan differences," President Bush is promising his administration will do its part.
Speaking in the White House Rose Garden after meeting with his Cabinet, Bush is calling on all Republicans and Democrats to put the elections behind them and work on the issues facing the country. Among them is Iraq, and Bush says he's "open to any idea or suggestion" that'll help the U.S. achieve its goals there.
He also says lawmakers have a responsibility to make sure the troops have the resources they need. The president is also urging Congress to pass several bills, including the terrorist surveillance act and federal spending measures for this year.
