Charges of Charlie McCarthyism continue to swirl around the President. So Tim Grieve of Salon's "War Room" asked White House Chief of Staff Andy Card whether or not Mr. Bush was doing a Milli Vanilli at the last debate:
"If he was, I didn't know about it," Card said. "I have no reason to believe he was wearing a listening device at all." So what was that tell-tale lump under Bush's suit coat? "I don't even know what you're talking about. Maybe people didn't have very good eyesight." Was the president wearing a bullet-proof vest? "No, he was not, not to my knowledge." Some are speculating that he was wearing some kind of medical device, like a portable IV machine. How about that? "Not to my knowledge."
