Scott McClellan blamed the so-called liberal media, saying it was too differential to the White House, while they were selling the propaganda to go to war in Iraq.  Scott pedaled the administration's garbage as press secretary from July 2003 until April 2006.  Now he wants to profit from it. He was a weasel then, he's a weasel now.

Paul O'Neill said the administration had a plan to invade Iraq from day one, Richard Clarke backed up that claim. Mr. Clarke said the administration ignored Al Qaeda, because they were fixated on Iraq. Colin Powell said all the evidence, he presented to the UN and the reason for attacking Iraq was bogus. All these facts were dismissed. Now, Scott McClellan wants to clear his conscience by telling us George W. Bush was not well served.  When does the President of the United States stand up, and say he was taking in because, (as Matthew Dowd said in his tell-all book)he is not up to the job.  Matthew Dowd was George W. Bush's former chief strategist, so he should know. Who takes the blame for more than 4000 dead troops and 30,000 wounded?

Of course, Fox's Sean Hannity gave Karl Rove a place to state his denial. Karl Rove went onto say Scott McClellan’s book sounded like a left-wing blog.  Danna Perino called McClellan a disgruntled employee. Didn’t Scott learn the lesson?  You can lie to the FBI and a federal grand jury, and this administration will praise you, and eventually give you a pardon.  You could continue the lie and hide behind executive privilege. Tell the truth and they  will slam you from the White House press room podium, right-wing blogs and talk radio.

Scott McClellan said the administration's first week of hurricane Katrina was spent in denial, Dan Bartlett had already said that he had to show the president, a DVD of the nightly newscast before he knew the severity of the hurricane.  We now, know  Karl Rove staged the fly over, of the devastated area for a photo op to sell to Republican donors.  Karl Rove’s excuse for the president not stopping on his on his way back to Washington. The president did not want to divert resources from the rescue efforts. Funny, that does not match Dan Bartlett’s version.

So when will the two sources of the story below come forward? Are they going to wait until their book publishers, tell him it's time?
