Tom DeLay Blames Iraq War Problems On Liberals, Democrats And Media

Reported by Ellen - December 12, 2006 -

Tom DeLay told an astounded Alan Colmes last night that liberals, Democrats and the media are the cause of the problems in the Iraq war. Colmes repeatedly made the point that the president is the commander in chief, that it was neither liberals nor the media who planned and executed the war effort. Yet DeLay insisted it was all the liberals/media's fault. Updated with video.

In this interview, DeLay argued to Colmes "It's the fault of the liberals and the media and the Democrats - that from the very beginning have tried to undermine the will of the American people to fight this... The media calls the shots."

Crooks and Liars notes that when DeLay appeared on MSNBC he played an entirely different tune. Then he said, "I have the utmost respect for legitimate liberals, Democrats that fight for what they believe in... I like (Nancy Pelosi). I think she‘s an honest liberal. She‘s fighting very hard for what she‘s doing."

By the way, DeLay was on FOX to promote his new blog. Nothing was mentioned about the fact that he is currently under indictment for money laundering.
