Scott McClellan: Trying To Sell a Book

Scott McClellanIn a craven attempt to rake in a pile of cash, former Press Secretary Scott McClellan has betrayed his President and his Administration. And in doing so, he has betrayed America. Question: was Scott lying then or is he lying now? I can’t be sure, but it seems what he’s leaking now to the press will potentially make him a lot of money from BDS afflicted moonbats who reflexively grasp at any straw in a futile effort to embarrass our great President. Next he’ll be posting on Daily Kos. Just watch.

Get a load of this rubbish:

Former White House press secretary Scott McClellan names names in a caustic passage from a forthcoming memoir that accuses President Bush, Karl Rove and Vice President Cheney of being “involved” in his giving the press false information about the CIA leak case.

Simple Scotty draws out the long knives and cheerfully stabs his former friends and superiors right in the back, without hesitation.

“I stood at the White house briefing room podium in front of the glare of the klieg lights for the better part of two weeks and publicly exonerated two of the seniormost aides in the White House: Karl Rove and Scooter Libby,” McClellan wrote.

“There was one problem. It was not true.”

And it’s all about money. Not truth, not honor, not principle, not loyalty. Just the visions of dollar signs that dance in his head. Shameful. Simply shameful.

McClellan then absolves himself and makes an inflammatory — and potentially lucrative for his publisher — charge.

That’s what it’s all about, covering his behind and himself in greenbacks. But who really cares about this nonsense anyway? It’s already obvious to anyone with half a brain that there was no underlying crime. So what’s the big deal? And Lewis Libby is nothing short of a hero. That’s a fact. Scott McClellan is a shamelessly disloyal sellout who’s trying desperately to sell a book that nobody wants to read.

It’s pathetic and sad. Scotty, how could you sink so low? And which Democrat are you going to endorse? The moonbat media will make a big deal out of this no doubt, sensing blood in the water, but it will be reportage full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. Moonbat McClellan, your five minutes in the sun are long past. Do us all a favor and go spend some time with your family. And don’t forget to turn in your White House press pass.

The saddest part of this whole non-story is that President Bush’s steadfast loyalty to his friend from Austin was repaid with a hard slap in the face.  What an awful thing to do to such a generous and trusting man.  It makes me sick.

  3. Well, Cheney did make false intelligence reports in order to wage war with a foreign nation so his company, Haliburton, could profit exponentially. I don’t know much about McClellan, but I don’t see what’s wrong with backstabbing your superiors if your superiors backstabbed America.

  6. Absolutely correct Elephant Bones. Not only has this administration lied about everything they’ve been involved with, the highest act of treason was commited by Bush/Cheney/Rove/Libby, worse than Benedict Arnold, then Bush pardoned the guy who took the fall for it.

    I guess, “I’ll fire and take care of anyone in my administration who leaks CIA operatives names” really means, “I, President Bush, support treason”.

    As I mentioned in another thread, the Ultra Conservative Neo-Conman Koolade Comittee will go along with the lie to the grave.

  7. Who cares, Bush is old news. Now is the time to look forward to this country’s future and ensure that the next President is an honest man of integrity leading this country.

  8. “Was Scott lying then or is he lying now?”

    hmm… do you still beat your wife?

    Mclellan says he believed what he was told then and that he has since learned that he was lied to by his superiors. It is possible he is telling the truth on both counts. There is no reason to assume that a press secretary had to have known what his superiors were up to. Sure, it’s possible he knew, but there isn’t, as you suggest, any logical inconsistency in the claim he is making now.

    When the book comes out we’ll presumably learn more about his claims regarding what he knew, when he knew it and how he knew it. For now, it is silly to make definitive judgments about Mclellan’s claims based upon a very brief press release from his publisher.

    And, if Mclellan happens to be telling the truth, then I wonder in what kind of moral universe it is that he owes allegiance to former superiors who lied to him fully expecting him to unwittingly repeat their self-serving falsehoods?

  9. Now I know why watching Snott-face McClellan at the podium was so painfull. He was secretly harbouring mean and nasty thoughts about our great leader when he was up there.

    This is why we need our next president to be Johnnie McCain. Because we need to remove the sting of the McC part of a person’s name. If we don’t get our Johnnie into office, The McC name part will be forever blackened and twisted.

    Johnnie will make sure that everyone at the podium will have either their balls or their breasts wired with special shock devices and a thought monitor will go on their head. If that person THINKS a bad thought against our leader.. then…ZAP! the whole press corp can watch them jump up and down…ha ha!

    I really feel sorry for Mr. Rove that he ever had to even know this patheic man’s name.

  10. Piaget, just because his administration’s almost over doesn’t absolve him from his crimes. When Hitler’s army was wiped out, they didn’t just leave the officers alone. They made sure the Nuremburg Trials delivered justice. Bush and Cheney have misled our great nation so they could achieve their selfish goals at the expense of thousands of soldiers and millions of lives and the trust of many allied countries.

    Marty, your fantasies play out like a dystopian totalitarian fantasy novel. you should go into writing.

    Theres still over an entire year to impeach and lock him in prison. He’ll do most of his damage immediately following the ’08 election until the next president is sworn in late January ’09.

  17. Elephant Bones, you and the rest of your liberal cohorts are trying to remove him from the public square. You don’t seem to be very proud of the Son of God, now do you?

  18. I’m proud of Jesus. He provided the best example of how to treat people. What I’m not proud of are the people who use his message as an excuse to mistreat people, hint hint. When i speak, i speak for myself, and only myself; when you talk, you claim to represent God’s will, and immediately start talking down to everyone who disagrees.
    I’m not trying to remove him from the public square. I just believe that people who don’t share my beliefs have a right to not have Christianity shoved down their throats. The Inquisition’s over, and it’s not coming back.
