A Man with a Flashlight

Stand by your man

Bush stands by Gonzales. He seems to have liked Thursday’s performance. Money quote:

“The attorney general went up and gave a very candid assessment and answered every question he could possibly answer, in a way that increased my confidence in his ability to do the job,” Bush told reporters in the Oval Office yesterday. “Some senators didn’t like his explanation, but he answered as honestly as he could.”

Not “completely honestly,” mind you. But “as honestly as he could.”

The punch line is that Bush didn’t even watch the hearing, according to White House spokeswoman Dana Perino. That does explain things somewhat, but you don’t expect them to just come out and say it.

Expect more mutiny from Republican lawmakers. He’s giving them nothing to believe in, and hurting the chances of those who are up for re-election.
