President had "confidence" in Delay's leadership


Q Tom DeLay, the House Majority Leader, has been admonished three times by the House Ethics Committee, is currently embroiled in several controversies involving a lobbyist who happened to be a pretty big fundraiser for your two campaigns. Do you have the full confidence in Tom DeLay, his tactics and his leadership role in the Republican Party?

THE PRESIDENT: I have confidence in Tom DeLay's leadership, and I have confidence in Tom DeLay.

1. Perfect Politick-speak
He says absolutely nothing but it sounds supportive. This is a person who is loyal to a fault, remember.

3. How about a preemptive pardon bush?
That would be just about the final straw in bush's credibility. Delay is toast anyway and pardoning him would make it look like bush was involved. The sooner he does it the more panicky he'll look.
