Rep. Blunt (R-MO) point person in defending DeLay

This just in (Bloomberg).

GOP members emerged from a meeting regarding DeLay's future and Rep. Roy Blunt of Missouri, the number three Republican in the House led the defensive press conference:

House Majority Whip Roy Blunt said questions about Majority Leader Tom DeLay's foreign travels and links to a lobbyist were politically motivated and had not weakened his support among Republican lawmakers.

Blunt, flanked by other Republican leaders at a news conference, said that support for DeLay -- one of the party's top strategists and fundraisers -- is growing because House Republicans view the recent reports suggesting ethics infractions to be partisan attacks.

"I don't sense any waning in support for the leader," said Blunt, the No. 3 House Republican. He said many lawmakers believe DeLay is "taking a lot of arrows for all of us."

  • Let's hope a lame-duck president pushing a lame social security package plus the Schiavo-intervention debacle plus the increasing stench of DeLay's scandals will all have the combined effect of finally cracking the Republican hold on Congress. Truth is, despite his redrawing of districts in Texas, DeLay's long term legacy may be a restoration of power for the Democrats. We can only hope. I put a link to your blog from my blog at Lefty Pundit.

  • MAYBE LAME-DUCK BUT PLANNING TO PACK WITH MORE RIGHT WINGERS IN 06 AND 08. GETTING DELAY OUT IS JUST A START. THESE SCUM BAGS ARE ENTRENCHED AND TEFLONED BY A CONTROLLED MEDIA AND DIEBOLD FRAUD. WHAT YOUR DOING IS AN UPHILL BATTLE, BUT TRUTH IN FACT IS ON YOUR SIDE. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK IN GETTING THE WORD OUT, OR WE LOSE OUR COUNTRY.

  • I AGREE WITH THE COMMENT ABOUT MORE RIGHT WINGERS. HERE I COME TO THE FIGHT AND IT IS ALL BECAUSE I AM FED UP WITH DEMOCRATIC LIARS AND LUNITICS WHO WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO DESTROY ANYONE WHO STANDS IN THEIR WAY. THE GLOVES ARE OFF.

    JUST WAIT UNTIL THE TRUTH COMES OUT ABOUT CHUCKY MAFIA SCHUMER AND OTHER DEMOCRONIES.
