The investigation is over. That's how the indictment was generated. So, he should NEVER say it.

18. I'd like to know what Scottie really thinks about DeLay ....
His mother, Carole K. Strayhorn, the Treasurer of the State of Texas, has announced that she's running against Rick Perry for governor next year. Rick Perry and Tom DeLay are part of the RW Fundie network in Texas. Strayhorn is not part of that religio-fascist group.

Wonder where Scottie stands? With Mom, or DeLay?

68. Junior and Co. aren't working too hard to protect Gov. HairGel
They're letting him take a lot of heat in Texas for the pitiful preparations (and ongoing FEMA non-response) for Rita, so I'm guessing Scotty's mommy has their support, now.

75. Notice how the White House feed keeps the volume low for the
press so it is hard to hear their questions while Snotty Scottie's volume is just fine! When CSPAN covers the press briefing the volume is the same for both.

How sleazy yet so typical of the cabal.

93. The press should yell their questions so it wouldn't matter how the
cabal tries to suppress their questions. Also, the press should ask Scottie outright why the WH keeps the volume low when their questions are asked!

80. "We're fightin' 'em there so we don't have to fight 'em at home."
OMG. He's recycling that stupid line.

He reminds me of Tim Robbins character in Bull Durham who is taught to use stock phrases during media interviews.

What a goober Puffy McMoonface is. :(

we have consulted with the senate...and 2/3 of the Democratic conference of the senate...it's important to get the views (of the senate)..."

:wtf: He said APPOINT then quickly corrected himself.

91. He jsut said he didn't understand a question & cut the reporter off...
How rude...it was some sort of question about a SCOTUS candidate and ties to the Harvard business school.

99. Don't worry.
Just repeat the old themes, plug in the new and improved alliteration exercise phrases like Lessons Learned and you'll pretty much have the same thing as being there.

103. He said Brown is "speaking for himself" but "he's on a 30 day contract
that began when he resigned."

:wtf: What the hell kind of explanation is that?

110. They obviously are doing this on purpose. They don't want the questions
just the spin.

We used to be able to hear the questions in press conferences, so this is deliberate.

102. You're full of it Scotty - they cut the money for firefighters and police
on the street and spread PORK under the guise of DHS. I know, my county sherriff bought a speed boat. Can't imagine what a country sherriff needs with a speed boat when all he does is watch the local house of corrections!

107. Good question. There must be a transcript.
"When freedom takes hold...when democracy takes hold...it won't look like ours..." YA THINK?

Rpeorter is grilling him about equal rights under the law...democracy...Saudis...(must be about Karen Hughes foot-in-mouth statement about Saudi women.)

108. Press Briefing Summed Up Here
Iraq/War on Terror: "We're fighting them there so we don't have to fight them here at home"

Hurricane/FEMA: "Lessons Learned", move forward, "Lessons Learned"

Supreme Court Nominations: Move foward in a "Civil and Dignified" manner

Indictments (all): "No comment" "on-going investigations"

There you have it! Whew! Short day today.

109. Being unable to hear the reporters
is just ridiculous. I just started watching press releases recently. Has it always been like this?

114. I distinctly remember I used to hear the press questions quite
clearly before the recent 'renovation'.

I am sure it is just an innocent tech problem, :sarcasm:

119. No, I think this is exactly they way they want it (see post 110).
That way you don't get to hear that annoying bit of truth in a question, just the spin.

111. And now he's scurried away like the little rodent he is
Boy, I bet he's glad this one is over! What a creepy little weasel! Every thing that comes out of his mouth is either a lie or a non-answer.

118. This is great!
One suggestion, if I may, and that would be to put /finger pointing with your 'blame game' square. Scottie seems to be using that a lot as well.
