Chimpy thinks Rummy's "doing a heck of a job"!!

This from C&L,

President Bush was interviewed by Brit Hume on Wednesday, and talked about his relationships with his extended White House "la familia.". He praised Donald Rumsfeld in a "shades of Michael Brown," kind of way. (rough transcript)

Hume: Secretary Rumsfeld, how does he stand with you?
Bush: Ahh-good, he's done a heck of a job.
Hume: Is he here to stay as far as you are concerned?
Bush: Yes, end of my term is a long time, but I tell you, he is doing a heckuva good job. I have no intention of changing him.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush offered strong endorsements on Wednesday to two architects of the Iraq war, Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney, and said he was as close as ever to top political adviser Karl Rove despite his role in the CIA leak case.

Rumsfeld and the vice president, Cheney, have been frequently accused by critics of pushing the war on false pretenses.
