Did You Know...

   

Yeah, right: “One of these days he and I are going to be rocking on chairs in Texas…”

“…talking about the good old days and his time as the Press Secretary. And I can assure you I will feel the same way then that I feel now, that I can say to Scott, job well done.”

— President Bush bidding a fond farewell to departing WH press secretary Scott McClellan, April 2006.

Well, I think we can safely say that the Bush/McClellan rocking chair session has been cancelled given the publication of McClellan’s splashy, turncoat tell-all.

One thing missing in all the coverage of McClellan’s fifteen minutes of book fame is proper reflection on how poorly served President Bush has been by his closest advisors.

McClellan was hired by Karen Hughes–the same aide who thought promoting Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court was a brilliant idea.

Imagine how many more like McClellan are serving in the administration today, biding their time, waiting for their turn in the nutroots sun.

Reader Kevin B. e-mails what McClellan said in his press briefing on March 22, 2004 when asked about Richard Clarke’s book blasting the Bush Administration for 9/11 and CIA intelligence failures:

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, why, all of a sudden, if he (Richard Clarke) had all these grave concerns, did he not raise these sooner? This is one-and-a-half years after he left the administration. And now, all of a sudden, he’s raising these grave concerns that he claims he had. And I think you have to look at some of the facts. One, he is bringing this up in the heat of a presidential campaign. He has written a book and he certainly wants to go out there and promote that book.

Pot. Kettle.
