Here we find Scott McClellan shaking hands with the President as he leaves his post back in November 2007. I can't help but wonder if that smile on his sorry face was hiding thoughts of the book advance he had coming once he signed on to rip his former boss..in the name of a couple bucks and a shot at rewriting his sorry history as Press Secretary.
He was no Ari Fleischer, but Bush stuck with him...until, apparently, he got the book deal. What a scumbag.
From the NY Daily News:
Former White House press secretary Scott McClellan has blasted his old boss, saying President Bush failed to be "open and forthright on Iraq" and relied on "propaganda" to sell the war.
McClellan's take on the Bush administration comes in a surprisingly scathing tell-all memoir, "What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington's Culture of Deception," to be published next week, Politico.com reports.
From Mike Allen at the Politico:
Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan writes in a surprisingly scathing memoir to be published next week that President Bush "veered terribly off course," was not “open and forthright on Iraq,” and took a "permanent campaign approach" to governing at the expense of candor and competence.
Go to the Politico for the lowlights of Scotty boy's biggest gripes. I need a shower.
