Bush Proclaims Belief in Delay Innocence

@ 07:17 PM (106 months, 20 days ago)

So during an interview on Fox News, Idiot Son proclaimed that he believes Tom Delay will be found innocent of money-laundering charges (which he is expected to go on trial for sometime next year).

Yet, Bush has refused to fully comment on the CIA leak case, saying it was a serious legal matter and it would be inappropriate for him to comment.

Let's do the Bush 2-step dance now!

Democrats blast Bush comment on pending legal case

  1. Let me see, the leak probe directly involved the White House.

    The investigation of Tom Delay doesn't directly involve the White House.

    Other than that, I can see where the media might find a bit of hypocrisy about the President's statement.

    (Do I really need a sarcasm tag?)

    And, it's OK for dozens of prominent Democrats to say that DeLay is guilty as hell, but the president isn't allowed to say he thinks DeLay is innocent?

    Good grief.

  2. Yes, it's more than OK for Democrats to say they believe Tom Delay is guilty. The Democrats are not the issue here.

    The issue is that George Bush has refused to answer many questions on the CIA Leak Case, saying it was a very serious matter, and it was a ongoing case.

    Hello? Tom Delay's case is ongoing---he will be standing trial next year.

    So George Bush is being hypocritical. He's commenting on one ongoing case, and refusing to comment on another.
