There have been several national news reports, including the AP, ABC News and other outlets that erroneously reported that House Speaker Hastert "took full responsibility" for the cover-up of Mark Foley's pedophilia.
Those reports are incorrect.
What Hastert actually said in his Illinois remarks earlier today (watch the videotape) was, "We take responsibility . . . "
All this stuff about his quotation of Harry Truman's "The Buck Stops Here" remark misinterpret what he actually meant: The buck stops somewhere over there.
