Cutting and Running

Kos had this earlier, but I like Capital Hill Blue's version (even if they're not always the best source):

A clearly-rattled President George W. Bush walked out of a media briefing Thursday, refusing to answer questions about his close relationship with indicted Enron executive Kenneth Lay, a campaign benefactor Bush nicknamed "Kenny Boy" when the two were up-and-comers in Texas.

The President, visibly upset, stomped off the stage when reporters pressed him about his relationship with Lay and left White House press secretary Scott McClellan to deal with the questions.

The San Francisco Chronicle characterizes the scene more neutrally -- but tells essentially the same story:
Bush was asked about the indictment Wednesday at an appearance in Waterford, Mich., but he walked away without answering.

If anyone out there sees a video clip of this, let me know.
