Getting the president to go on defense by refuting, himself, every ludicrous claim made by the lying left is exactly what they want. He needs to remain above that crap and have others in the Party or close to the Party respond.
I have seen several people in the past few days aggressively and accurately refute the charges of Reid and the others who are totally misreporting the Libby indictment and what Fitzpatrick said in explaining it last Friday. Just last evening I watched Debra Orin of the NYP dismantle Bob Schrum as he tried to mischaractorize what Fitzpatrick said. And immediately after that another Republican whose name I can't recall did exactly the same against the lib Vandenheaval.

I don't disagree with you, but in this case, Bush should be pressuring the GOP "leaders" to take up that defense. He doesn't even do this. Case in point: For five years now, Charles Schumer has been the Dems' point person to oppose any and every judicial nominee that Bush puts forward. Everyone knows who to go to when they want a negative comment about Bush's judicial nominees -- they go to Schumer. But who among the Sen. Republicans is the go-to guy to support and promote his nominations? A few make some favorable comments when approached by the media (I'm thinking Cornyn here), but who, really, is THE point person in the Senate to support Bush's nominees? There isn't one, that I can see.
