Merry Fitsmas!

October 28 8:24 PM

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney volunteered glowing endorsements and expressed no criticism of I. Lewis Libby on Friday as the senior White House adviser was indicted, resigned and lost his security clearance.

Later, the president glowered at NBC News reporter David Gregory, when he shouted at Bush, "Are you embarrassed by these charges?" The president had to walk within a few feet of the correspondent to get to his helicopter on the South Lawn, and Bush stared hard at Gregory as he continued to shout questions.

Bush flew to Camp David, his mountaintop retreat in Maryland, for the weekend.

Libby was a driving force behind the administration's march to war against Iraq and helped assemble evidence - later proven false - asserting that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction, which became the rationale for the U.S.-led invasion in March 2003.

One liar and criminal down, a lot more to go.
