AP: Bush spins his own bad answer on Delay
The amazing thing about this is that, as usual, he expects us to believe this: "President Bush said Friday his statement that former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay was innocent of criminal charges in Texas was meant to signal confidence in the justice system and not to make a pronouncement about the individual case.
'The point I was making was 'innocent until otherwise proven,'' Bush said in an interview to Friday for 'The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer.' 'It's a belief in the system, and that's not always the way people are treated here in Washington as you know.'
On Wednesday, Bush was asked on Fox News Channel whether he believed DeLay was innocent, and he replied, 'Yes, I do.'"
