Scott McClellan Throws Delay Under The Bus

A picture named Bush_Delay1.jpg

In today’s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan was particularly noncommittal and vague about President Bush’s “friendship” with the scandal scalded House Majority Leader Tom DeLay:



MCCLELLAN: There are a number of congressional leaders that he works closely with on the Hill and he considers a friend. Sure.
QUESTION: And he considers Tom DeLay a friend.
MCCLELLAN: I think there are different levels of friendship with anybody…

The headline is a little severe, but you know what I mean. Scotty could have given Delay high praises right away if there wasn't something going on.

Think Progress has more.
