  •  Cheers to Scott McClellan (4.00)
    for finally fessing up:

    Q I want to follow up on what Terry just asked you. Even before DeLay was indicted, there were a lot of Democrats who were making an argument that the Republican Party, by virtue of having controlled Congress for more than a decade now, the White House for almost five years now, had grown arrogant in its use of power, and was flouting rules and sometimes laws. What's the President's view?
    MR. McCLELLAN: Welcome to Washington, D.C., Dick. That's the kind of politics that go on in this town. The Republican Party, particularly under this President, has worked to get things done for the American people. We have advanced an agenda that has helped to improve the quality of life for all Americans. And we stand very firmly behind that record and that agenda.

    Bold is mine, although Scottie is pretty bold to admit it.  I know the takeaway is supposed to be the dems did it too, when they were in power but it was nice to hear Scottie stray so far from the talking point and so plainly and publicly admit that they aren't interested in working with the dems, only pursuing their agenda.
