Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire...
McClellan, as skilled a liar as anyone who has stood before the press and misled reporters on behalf of a President, fails to mention Abramoff’s frequent visits to the President’s ranch in Crawford, Texas, the private meetings that the lobbyist arranged with the President on the 2004 campaign trail and at the Republican National Convention that year.
But Abramoff, who raised more than $100,000 for Bush in the last campaign, promised big time donors face time with the President and delivered on those promises during the convention. In addition, he traveled to Bush’s ranch in Texas with his co-conspirator in crime, former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay.
A former DeLay staffer who is cooperating with the investigation into both Abramoff and the disgraced GOP leader’s activities, has told investigators that Abramoff and DeLay visited Bush at his ranch on at least four occasions in 2003 and 2004.
Dale Knally, a campaign worker in the 2004 Bush-Cheney re-election campaign, recalls a meeting between Bush and Abramoff during a campaign stop in Florida.“He put his arm around Abramoff and told us that ‘this man is one of this administration’s greatest friends,’” Knally recalls.
But Bush doesn't know him, right? Somebody put Scotty out of his misery please. I can't stand to see him whore himself like that any more. In the words of the late Senator and famous out of control alcoholic Joe McCarthy, "there's one behind every Bush". Back then, Joe was talking about Commies, not Lobbyists, but the phrase is just so apropos.
