Bush-Haters of the World...Unite!

Although not a big fan of the Bush administration, the current MSN and talk radio reaction to and coverage of the Scott McClennan book "What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington's Culture of Deception" it 100 percent predictable.

Of course the White House is going to react negatively about the book. His silence would have been their preference. Of course congress -- the House Judiciary Committee -- is going to want to hold hearings on the matter. Obama is going to support the MSM premise that Bush lied. And not to be out done or made irrelevant, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has seconded McClellan's assertions.

There is a concept here that most people adhere to but McClellan has not: he opted to kiss and tell. Think about anytime you have been placed in a situation that might not have gone as you'd have liked. Maybe it was a employer, a neighbor, or a friend. Most people let by-gones be by-gones and move on. Some people can't leave well-enough alone and have to make themselves feel relevant by making a stink.

No one was holding a gun to his head making him confess the sins of his employer. He has been on record as being opposed to kiss and tell memoirs. He did this for his own self-aggrandizement, his own pocketbook. Loyalty and trust were tossed out the window. The Bush-haters will use him for all they can. He will eventually find himself on the trash heap of political has-beens.

Although I do believe the Bush administration lied... I would say that this published record is a low blow. I'm sure there are a number of ex-staffers that could do the same but haven't.
