President Bush said Wednesday that Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld has done "a heck of a good job" and there are no plans to replace him.I have to say, George has some pretty big cojones to admit in public that #1 he thinks Rumsfeld is doing a stand-up job as SecDef and #2 that Tom DeLay is innocent. Either these gaffes are further proof of the Bubble Boy Presidency or they are part of a master plan to keep the heat off the Chimperor when the axes fall.
Bush also spoke up for former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, saying he believes DeLay is innocent of money laundering charges and he hopes the Republican congressman will be able to reclaim his leadership post.
Rumors have been swirling about the possibility of Rumsfeld's departure from Bush's Cabinet. But the president said in an interview being aired Wednesday on Fox News Channel that the Pentagon chief wasn't leaving anytime soon.
"End of my term is a long time, but I tell you, he's done a heck of a good job," Bush said, "and I have no intention of changing him."
What I would like to know is, how ignorant and out of touch does the President have to act before the vast majority of this country can call him what he is: stupid.
