Senator Ken Salazar says Bush "acts like a king".
"WASHINGTON Saying President Bush sometimes acts "like a king," Sen. Ken Salazar warned today that he would oppose Bush's next Supreme Court pick if it turns out to be one of two controversial judges or someone else he considers an unqualified ideologue."

"During a conference call with reporters, Salazar said he would oppose Janice Rogers Brown or Priscilla Owen, two U.S. circuit court judges the U.S. Senate recently installed on the bench following a blistering confirmation process."

"This president, frankly, sometimes acts like a king," Salazar said. "He's imperious. He believes he controls Washington and controls our country, and does so sometimes in a way that, it's his way or the highway, and doesn't take into account what other people are thinking...when they have a different point of view or are (from) a different party."

"I have never filibustered a judicial nominee and I hope that I never have to," Salazar said. "I'd hope that if the president does move forward with someone like Janice Rogers Brown, many Republicans would join us in basically telling the president, No, we won't accept somebody who is professionally unqualified and is an ideologue.'"
