Bush On The Defensive For DeLay Comment

During an interview on FOX News Channel on Wednesday, President Bush was asked if he thought DeLay was innocent. The President responded "yes I do" immediately putting the White House on the defensive.

From the Washington Post:

"'The president of the United States said a jury does not need to assemble, that Tom DeLay is innocent,' said Senate Minority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.). 'To have someone of his stature, the president of the United States, prejudge a case is something I've never seen before.'"

"'The president was asked a question and he responded to that question in the interview yesterday, and made very clear what his views were,' McClellan said. 'We don't typically tend to get into discussing legal matters of that nature, but in this instance, the president chose to respond to it. Our policy regarding the Fitzgerald investigation and ongoing legal proceeding is well-known and it remains changed.'

"'Call it a presidential prerogative,' he added.”


  • Bush opens his mouth and doesn't know its Jury Tampering?!???

  • Stupid is as stupid does. The real enigma is the 30 percent of the public that pollsters claim to continue to support this fool.

  • I have to admit that I am--like everyone--upset about what an asshole Tom DeLay is. The guy's such an unbelievable hypocrite and unethical slime. I have to say that in all his nonsense here at home, everyone's forgotten what a pig he is with respect to Saipan. Tom DeLay really is an asshole.

  • The McClellan quote should read: "Our policy regarding the Fitzgerald investigation and ongoing legal proceeding is well-known and it remains unchanged."

    It seemed to good to be true. Though you could say that in fact it is changed, becuase the policy before was to not comment during the investigation, and now Bush is commenting during the investigation.
