Bush trying to dilute Foley scandal

Anyone notice during his press conference today that he commented about waiting to see what the facts were and seeing what Republicans knew and what Democrats knew. To quote the master of obfuscation:
And we want to make sure we understand what Republicans knew and what Democrats knew, in order to find the facts. And I hope that happens sooner rather than later.
Nice try, Republican George. One more of their constant subtle misrepresentations that are too numerous to fight back.

This is a Republican responsibility through and through...if Democrats alerted anyone about this - and that's not the case - this was initially disclosed by Republicans to ABC's Brian Ross - it was because it SHOULD have been disclosed and no one was doing anything about it. Particularly the Republican leadership of the House.

Accountability rests with those in charge. Not the onlookers who have no power to mete out discipline. If they refused to exercise accountability, Democrats would have had every right to alert the media.

Bush reaffirms why people are sick of Republican control - No Accountability. No taking of responsibility. Ever.
