Ari Fleischer Still Smooth As Silk

Reported by Deborah - March 3, 2005

Ari Fleischer plugged his new book on H&C tonight, Taking Heat, about his years in the Bush White House. Fleischer is still trying to make the administration look open and pure of heart and Hannity was only too happy to give him a hand.3/3/05

Hannity and Fleischer quickly brought the conversation to September 14 when Bush appeared at ground zero. Fleisher related how difficult and emotional that day was for everyone. Then Fleischer compared Bush to Reagan claiming that Bush's rhetoric reveals his large visions.

Colmes came up and after a few seconds of shmoozing asked Fleischer how someone like Jeff Gannon could get into the the White House press corp recalling that Fleischer didn't call on Gannon for quite awhile.Fleisher didn't blink explaining that the White House is inclusive and Gannon's questions were conservative not softball. When Colmes asked him if Gannon had an inside contact to get his day passes, Fleischer quickly said yes acting like it was no big deal. "How do you define who is a journalist?" He then passed off the security issue by saying that "everyone went through the same metal detectors."

comment: Fleischer's smooth cover up of the Gannon fiasco proves that he knows something significant.I also think that he knew about the question and his answer was well rehearsed and deliberate.
