Thread: Bob Dole craps on Scott

Scott McClellan did speak up, isnt that what this whole thing is about? If the Administration was really lying and decieving the public wouldn't SMC been doing the country a disservice by staying quiet? He outed Bush for what most of the country already knows he is.
[/I wont respond to your canned comments on this. So dont bother]Bush's involvement in Scooter Libby would've been grounds for impeachment a few years ago, but the gesture is merely symbolic at this point and a waste of everyones' time.[/I wont respond to your canned comments on this. So dont bother]
Bob Dole is a coward here, piling on a guy and towing the party line when he has nothing to gain. Old irrelevant washed up loser trying to get back in the news, any responsible journalist would shred this crap before it hit their desk.

Except you are lying on Bush's involvement with Scooter Libby. The anti-war State Dept. employee Richard Armitage was the leaker.
HE ADMITTED IT and the publisher of the leak, Robert Novak CONFIRMED it.
Get your facts straight.
There also is NO specific allegation. Why didn't Scotty use anything that could actually be checked out????

I wouldn't read the book myself but I hear it accomplished what the publisher wanted it to. Sales and a new investigation. They couldn't uncover any evidence against President Bush in all the hearings they had so far, I don't expect they will find anything new now. Liberals will give Scott his fifteen minutes of fame, then forget about him.

Soros Publisher 'Shaped' McClellan's Hit Job: Other publishers don't recognize it as the same book
An examination of published reports reveals that Scott McClellan's kiss-and-smell betrayal of George W. Bush is a far cry from the book McClellan started out to write and was shaped into an offensive tome by a publisher with close ties to George Soros. To understand how McClellan's literary knife-in-the-back evolved, one has to know something about the book industry. snip
And then there is this clown :(Wexler Screeches For Impeachment Based On McClellan Book)Palm Beaches/ New Yorkers in exile's own Congressional mouth piece !
Wexler is a good example of a complete liberal Congresscritter,large mouth,empty head,Whining voice and lots of Chutzpah, Hebrew word , meaning "insolence", "audacity", and "impertinence".

Saw this in the paper over the weekend, the highlighted portion tells how I think it went down.
A Matter of Loyalty
By Michael Reagan May 28, 2008
It's amazing what some people will do for 30 pieces of silver.
Scott McClellan was given the signal honor of being the spokesman for the president of the United States, a distinction few Americans have ever achieved. Being the spokesman for the world's most powerful political figure is no small thing, and I'm sure that the men and women who have held the post view their service as an honor more given that deserved.
It doesn't appear as if McClellan sees it that way. He is not the first press secretary to be forced out of the job, and he won't be the last. But he'll be the first to sink his teeth into the hand that gave him the job in the first place.
It is a tough job, especially when the spokesman of a president the liberal media despises wears a large bullís eye on his chest. It's an even tougher job when the person who holds the job is clearly not up to it, as was the case with McClellan. He was an easy target for the nastier members of the largely hostile White House Press corps.
His lack of competence is what cost him the job, and it is now obvious that he left the White House burning with resentment over his forced departure. The fact that he had held the job as long as he did obviously created no sense of gratitude for his having been given the post to begin with.
His act of vengeance has delighted the media who once excoriated him. Their onetime foe is now their hero, an ally in their never-ending campaign to portray George Bush, a good and decent man, as a bumbling fool if not an outright criminal.
They greet his alleged revelations with none of the skepticism with which they once treated his pronouncements from the White House press room podium, accepting, for example, his attempt to lay the blame for what Richard Armitage did in leaking the name of Valerie Plame on his old friend and Texas colleague, Karl Rove, and Scooter Libby.
They let out a great cheer when he joins the chorus of Democrats and their media henchmen attributing the Iraq war to sleazy, dishonest and hugely deceptive White House maneuvering when the real facts show otherwise.
As David Horowitz and his co-author Ben Johnson write in "Party of Defeat," George Bush acted solely to enforce a United Nations ultimatum blatantly ignored by Saddam Hussein.
Wrote the authors: "The United States went to war because it had concluded that Saddam Hussein could not be trusted to observe the arms agreement embedded in the UN resolutions. Twelve years of defiance and obstruction leading up to, and including the December 7 deadline had established that fact. Even then, the Bush administration was prepared to forego war if Saddam and his sons left the country and went into exile, thus allowing the terms of the UN resolutions to be met."
Scott McClellan surely knew this but chose to ignore it, preferring to give ammunition to those who want to advance a false view of the conflict's genesis.
In the end, it's all about money. An honest book about his experiences wouldn't sell. If he wanted to sell his book, it had to dish up dirt, even when there wasn't any underfoot.
When I wrote my first book, "On the Outside Looking in," I had publishers waving huge royalties in my face if I would only sling mud at my father. They couldn't understand that there was simply no mud in his life and work, and I wasn't willing to create any for them for the sake of big bucks.
Too bad Scott McClellan, blinded by the glitter of those 30 pieces of sliver, didn't see it that way.I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad
