CBN News: Do you feel like you may have made too many enemies, to the point where now it's becoming too much of an uphill climb?The article says that he really believes this is "a left-wing conspiracy designed by the Democrats who do not like DeLay's conservative Christian values and his hardball tactics". Is it me or the "left wing conspiracy" talk sounding just a bit silly and how did he catch on that we all hate bible thumpers. Geez.
Tom DeLay: I don't think it's too much of an uphill climb, but you're right -- I've made a lot of enemies.
CBN News: Who are you angry at?
DeLay: I'm really not angry. My faith has sustained me. I struggle with loving your enemies and I try my best to love my enemies and pray for my enemies, but I'm not angry.
They are quite the comedy dual...
Christine DeLay: They don't like Tom DeLay, because Tom DeLay has been very effective in making some serious changes in this country.Let us see, the liberal media that charters an expensive private jet to a paid interview to tell the truth according to Tom Delay. Remember this...
Tom Delay: All they have is the politics of personal destruction and character assassination.
Christine: And the liberal media.
Tom: And the liberal media.
Christine: That's huge.
Unsaid, but revealed in documents DeLay later filed in the U.S. House, was that DeLay's Oct. 2 appearance cost Fox News $14,000.Ok, back to the CBN interview.
The money rented a private jet to ferry DeLay from a small airport near his Sugar Land home to Fox studios in Washington. The next day, after engaging in a give and take with host Chris Wallace, DeLay and his Capitol Police security detail were flown back to suburban Houston. -Chuck Lindell
CBN News: How much pressure did you feel you were under, to give up that House leadership position?Sure you didn't.
DeLay: I felt no pressure at all.
And a final thought...
In the end, DeLay's bottom line is that, one day, the truth will set him free.Amen.
