"Today's revelations by Mr. McClellan are very disturbing and raise several important questions that need to be answered. If in fact the President of the United of States knowingly instructed his chief spokesman to mislead the American people, there can be no more fundamental betrayal of the public trust.The bad news is, it was just a sleazy publicity stunt.
McClellan doesn't suggest that Bush deliberately lied to him about Libby's and Rove's involvement in the leak, said Peter Osnos, founder and editor-in-chief of Public Affairs Books, which is publishing McClellan's memoir next year.So Scotty is still a good a little shill who will dutifully cover our Imperial Leader's butt, however it may still backfire. I think we all expected he wouldn't really rat out Bush but if nothing else, it's still a reminder of how corrupt and deceitful this whole administration has been right along and it will raise doubts I think about whether Bush really knew or didn't. He certainly should have known his closest advisors were liars.
Meanwhile, I suggest everyone boycott the book. One expects it be more tell nothing new than tell-all.
