Listen, like night follows day, you knew that the liberal press and their minions were going to jump all over former press secretary Scott McClellan blasting President Bush and his administration in his new book. Yet when we look take a look at this dust-up thru a prism we refer to as common sense we can see that McClellan has all the makeup of a disgruntled employee: nepotism got him the job in the first place, he wasn't nearly as good at the job as his predecessor, spokesman aren't involved in policy-making and despite all the supposed horrible deeds McClellan claims Bush made concerning Iraq, he stayed on the job for 3 years and now he's promoting a book that just so happens to come out right before Bush leaves office:
In a shocking turnabout, the press secretary most known for defending President Bush on Iraq, Katrina and a host of other controversial issues produced a memoir damning of his old boss on nearly every level — from too much secrecy to a less-than-honest selling of the war to a lack of personal candor and an unwillingness to admit mistakes.
In the first major insider account of the Bush White House, one-time spokesman Scott McClellan calls the operation "insular, secretive and combative" and says it veered irretrievably off course as a result.
The White House responded angrily Wednesday to McClellan's confessional memoir, calling it self-serving sour grapes.
"Scott, we now know, is disgruntled about his experience at the White House," said current White House press secretary Dana Perino, a former deputy to McClellan. "We are puzzled. It is sad. This is not the Scott we knew."
McClellan was the White House press secretary from May 2003 to April 2006, the second of four so far in Bush's presidency.
If you're a liberal you believe everything that's in Scott McClellan's book. But then liberals are idiots.
