With Freinds Like These...

Today, a book written by former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan, was released. The book was not a flattering portrayal of President Bush or his cabinet.

McClellan wrote that Bush made serious errors in judgement, when it came to the Iraqi war, and it was because of misinformation given to him by his advisers. He also said the aftermath of Hurricane Catrina in New Orleans was handled poorly.

The final damaging revelation and the main reason for McClellan resigning his position at the White House, in 2006, was because he was deliberately given false information by Carl Rove, Scooter Libby and Vice President, Dick Cheaney about the Valerie Plame/CIA leak and encouraged to deceive the media, but unknown to him at he time.

Weather McClellan knew certain information or not and weather he chose to perpetuate falsehoods or not may never be known. His timing for this book should be in question, however. He appears to be an opportunist who chose to take this time, when Bush's approval rating is so low and during an election year, to capitalize on a book deal. After all, most of what he wrote in not news to anyone.

What kind of friend (and that's what he describes himself as) would be so deceptive. Isn't it hypocritical of him to call George W. Bush his friend and then write such damning things about him afterward.

What's the 1st rule of 'Fight Club' dick head? Enjoy the paycheck because most people won't want to trust you with their business anymore.
