McClellan getting bashed for speaking his mind, not Bush’s

  1. “he owes George Bush and his minions neither loyalty nor silence.”

    I agree wit h that. My only problem is if he came forward sooner it may have helped in the leak investigation and it may have changed the outcome of the election. Don’t you think the public had a right to know. Of course, some of this is his opinion, but at least out it out there. I don’t think he’s a liar, I think he’s being truthful. Do you remember when he bashed Paul O’Neal for writing a tell all book? If I find the video I’ll post it on my blog. It’s very interesting, the talking points he used on Paul are now being used on him.
    I haven’t read McClellan’s book and would have no way of knowing if it’s truthful, but if it isn’t, he could be sued for libel, assuming anyone in the administration really wants all that dirty laundry aired in court. As for the timing of the book’s release, I’d guess it was definitely calculated to affect the November elections. Don’t recall the O’Neal bash, but just saw one of Richard Clark. Sounded like McClellan was just doing his job as press secretary.

  2. As much as I dislike Mr. Bush, McClellan is a phony and a coward. If he had reservations about the Iraq thing, why didn’t he speak up earlier? He COULD HAVE SAVED countless American and Iraqi lives. The public would have put an end to Mr. Bush’s reign, just like what Watergate did to Nixon’s. If he had decided to put personal gains over truths, why come out now and slander Mr. Bush (rightly or wrongly)? Where is his sense of loyalty? If he is my employee, I would have punched him on the face. What a despicable human being!
    I can only speculate about McClellan’s motives and timing. Had I been in his position, I don’t know if I’d have kept my mouth shut in order to keep my job, or quit. It’s quite possible I’d have opted to keep my job, and only later, with a little perspective, figured out exactly what happened and how I felt about it. My loyalty would have been bought and paid for while I was press secretary, but not after I left the position.

... and that's my two cents
