WASHINGTON - July 24:  Former Rep. Jim Nussle, R-Iowa (1991-2007), during his hearing before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on Tuesday morning. Nussle's nomination has received a mixed response from Democrats, who are preparing to square off with Bush this fall on his pledge to veto fiscal 2008 spending bills that exceed his budget request. Democrats want to spend $23 billion more than the $933 billion the president has requested for the 12 appropriations measures. If confirmed, Nussle would be the administration's front man on spending issues as director of the White House Office of Management and Budget.. (Photo by Dana Statton/Congressional Quarterly)..
