Bush Must Read Blogs

On April 5, I blogged in defense of Tom DeLay at Redstate.org.  

A lot has happened since then.  But even at that early date — and writing to a "friendly audience" — my defense of DeLay sparked quite a controversy (27 comments were posted.)

Here’s part of what I had to say:

“… And let’s be honest: The liberals are attacking him because he’s effective.  Period.  And not only is he effective — DeLay has stuck his neck out for us.  During re-districting in Texas, he actually made his own district more liberal — to help win other Republican seats.  In short, he sacrificed his own comfort and "safe seat" to increase the Republican majority.  And we reward him by turning our backs on him???”

Yesterday, speaking of DeLay, President Bush echoed that sentiment, when he told Brit Hume:

“When he’s over there, we get our votes through the House.”

Conclusion: Bush may not read newspapers, but he does read blogs!
