o, or those lying eyes?
via TCBP: " Rafael Palmeiro is a friend. He testified in public and I believe him," Bush said, referring to Palmeiro's denials under oath to a congressional committee on March 17. "He's the kind of person that's going to stand up in front of the klieg lights and say he didn't use steroids, and I believe him. Still do."
Arthur makes it clear in many of his posts that Bush doesn't represent a political party, but a gang, a loyalist group that serves each others interests first and foremost. Well this latest piece of news further supports that theory.
The NY Daily News has this: "But two officials familiar with baseball's steroid testing program said the substance identified in Palmeiro's urine was a "potent" drug, and not consistent with the kind of steroid sometimes found in over-the-counter supplements. The officials would not say what was discovered, and spoke on the condition of anonymity. Under baseball's testing agreement, neither side is permitted to reveal that information and Palmeiro, a former pitchman for Viagra, refused as well. MLB officials did not return calls for comment."
Raffy is a friend of the President and Bush's belief in loyalty far outweighs anything else it seems when he makes his decisions for appointments, awarding medals, and any other post he deems necessary like for instance the Amnbassador to the UN. Of course the President will back Palmeiro. The evidence is meaningless as far as that goes.
