April 26 (Bloomberg) -- President George W. Bush gave a show of support to House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, who has been under scrutiny for his ties to lobbyists, inviting him to an appearance in their home state of Texas and praising his ``leadership.'

Bush himself made no mention of the ethics controversy but he praised DeLay's efforts on important legislation. "I appreciate the leadership of Congressman Tom DeLay in working on important issues that matter to the country," he said.

En route to the Social Security event, White House spokesman Scott McClellan told reporters that Bush supports DeLay "as strongly as he ever has, which is strongly."

McClellan played down the idea that the joint appearance was an attempt to give DeLay a lift because of the ethics controversy.

"This has to do with an event that is occurring in his area and the fact that the president appreciates his leadership in the House and that we work very closely with him, as well as other congressional leaders, on the agenda for the American people," McClellan said.

The Social Security event was held at a medical school in Galveston, which is near but not in DeLay's congressional district.


Bush then went on to provide examples of DeLay's admirable leadership skills:
1. Gerrymandering Texas voting districts to favor Republicans, causing Democrats to stage walkout protests and flee to other states, corrupt dishonest and unjust
2. Changing national house ethics rules to save his own ass for violating the ethics rules, also known as breaking the law. DeLay convinced his republican traitor friends to support this change. Illegal, corrupt dishonest and unjust
3. Issuing a threat to judges across America. Illegal and unjust
4. Taking bribes from lobbyists. Illegal, corrupt, dishonest and unjust
5. Laundering bribe money to his family. Illegal, corrupt, dishonest and unjust

I sense a trend here. Oh but wait! Bush just said he loves his leadership. Surprise - King Bush of Torture and War loves an illegal, corrupt dishonest and unjust traitor to America who should be in prison. The trend continues...

Wait! We should be blaming Democrats the whole time.

Officials said DeLay recommended that senators respond to questions by saying Democrats have no agenda other than partisanship, and are attacking him to prevent Republicans from accomplishing their legislative program. One Republican said the Texan referred to a ``mammoth operation'' funded by Democratic supporters and designed to destroy him as a symbol of the Republican majority.

Smoke and mirrors. What would people like Bush, DeLay, Rove (etc) be without them
