Bush yesterday on Dennis Hastert:
“The speaker’s strong statements have made it clear to not only . . . the party members, but to the country, that he wants to find out the facts…All of us want to find out the facts… Denny is very credible, as far as I’m concerned. He’s . . . done a fine job as speaker.”
Bush is obviously more concerned with protecting his GOP buddies than upholding the integrity of Congress. The best the GOP can do to defend him these days is say at least he “didn’t kill anybody.”
As Rep. Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill., chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, stated on ABC’s “This Week:”
If a high school principal had not disciplined a teacher acting improperly with a student the community would demand the principal’s ouster.
