Bush shows support for DeLay
Democrats say Bush should denounce the House majority leader.

JENNIFER LOVEN - The Associated Press

April 27, 2005
GALVESTON, Texas President Bush on Tuesday gave embattled House Majority Leader Tom DeLay a high-profile, in-person show of support, warmly thanking the Texas Republican, who is facing allegations of ethical improprieties, for his leadership in Congress.

Bush Gestures Support for Delay

(cut)

Mr. DeLay has been accused of letting lobbyists illegally pay for several overseas trips, including a golf trip to Scotland to play at St. Andrew's. Mr. DeLay has denied any wrongdoing, and says Democrats are targeting him because they cannot defeat the Republicans' agenda.
"I know I have been watched and investigated probably more than even Bill Clinton," he told The Times two weeks ago. "They can't find anything, so they're going back to my childhood, going to my family, going to things that happened eight years ago. There's nothing there."

"They are just desperate," Mr. Rove told CNN's "Inside Politics" last week. "We strongly support Tom DeLay. He's a good man, a close ally of this administration."

2. What? No photo-op today, Mr Bush?
Don't want to defend your close friend DeLay?

We could just ask about Kenny Boy instead?

So many ETHICAL friends to question about...
