From today's WhiteHouse press Briefing:
Q Scott, I have a two-part question. Apparently, no one in the White House will challenge Al Gore with now public information that he led the Clinton administration's Clipper Chip Project back in the 1990s to effectively tap every phone, fax machine and computer in the country. And my question: Isn't that worth pointing out to the American people, after he accused President Bush of breaking the law and violating the Constitution by --
MR. McCLELLAN: I think you just did. This is an administration that is forward-looking, Les. We're focused on the priorities of the American people.
Q Well, how about Gore? You mean you're going to say nothing about Gore and the clipper chip project?
MR. McCLELLAN: I think you already have. No, I'm not going to get into that.

That is the problem with this administration. They don't feel the need to defend themselves against attacks from the left. It has been a mistake not to come out swinging.
That McClellan is so weak. He, the AG- muppet and Andy Card are truely weak.
This may be shameless self-promotion, but....
The media will probably expose this guy too. They didn't like when Talon did this sort of thing.
Effin' whiney "journalists". They ignore basic truths to crucify conservatives with hype and spin.
McClellan is totally ineffective. They would do better putting a robot or a parrot into his job.
Nice article. It ought to be picked up and syndicated.
They don't feel the need to defend themselves against attacks from the left. It has been a mistake not to come out swinging.
A huge mistake. You don't put wimps into a fight with the mean boys...this has hurt us, and the Repub party, even more than most realize. Repubs now have an image of weakness which the Dems will not quit exploiting.
Very bad strategic and tactical decision and posture.
I imagine he didn't want to get into the clipper chip project because they are into the clipper chip project.
Things do move from one administration to the other.
He probably went "oh no I gotta avoid this" when the statement came up.
Sorta like, "Nevermind those punks hitting us in the back of the head with the bat. Just keep looking forward and ignore them!" Scott McClellan is just as much of an wothless idiot as his momma! Has to be genetic!
Les Kinsolving always keeps it entertaining.
I comletely forgot about the Clinton/gore
ClipperChip that would WIRETAP every single
phone line.As opposed to surveiling international
communications between terrorists and their supporters
in the USA.
According to a Google news search, there's only five articles that mention it. WorldNetDaily, followed by mine and three others. We're an AP member, but I haven't heard the phone ring yet.
There is no such thing as a "journalist." It is as made up a profession as "womens studies." I have no academic respect for anyone degreed in either journalism or womens, or ethnic studies. They are reporters. Here is what I'm saying, reporter, write it down. Leave your opinion out. If I want your opinion I'll give it to you.
And it started back when W refused to take the ex-Clintonoids to task for trashing and pilfering the White House and purloining everything not tied down on Air Force One.
Interesting comment and you may be right but if it were true I would suspect the MSM to run with it. They wouldn't hesitate to tar Bush with the program even if it originated with Clinton.
I forgot about it too till I saw that snippet from the press briefing today.. brought back lots of memories!
