WASHINGTON The White House pressured CNN to fire former military analyst Gen. Wesley Clark (search), the retired Army chief told a Phoenix radio station on Monday.

"The White House actually back in February apparently tried to get me knocked off CNN and they wanted to do this because they were afraid that I would raise issues with their conduct of the war," Clark told Newsradio 620 KTAR. "Apparently they called CNN. I don't have all the proof on this because they didn't call me. I've only heard rumors about it."

Sounds like he's experienced a little too much battle fatigue! Time to take your medicine, General!

So he has no proof, has only heard rumors, and is making a public accusation. Yep, he's a Democrat candidate for President alright.

Whatever. Any military man who ascends to the rank of General and then allies himself with a socialist America hater like Clinton, is irrelevant.

(1) It seems Wesley Clark has decided to trade in his khaki for tinfoil.

(2) I'm sure Jimmy Carter had a better "Blind Bio" than Ronald Reagan. What a meaningless survey.

"Apparently they called CNN. I don't have all the proof on this because they didn't call me. I've only heard rumors about it."

Just like his White House source on the 9/11 attacks never materialized.

Clark is an utter POS who should be attacked at every opportunity and knocked clear out of the race. This isn't about Dems, it's about a man incredibily unfit to be President.

Has to be a self-serving lie. His greasy persona was the best thing for the administration--there HAD to be an opponent and Clark was the least effective one I can think of.

Doesn't stop him from talking about it though, eh? What a moron. Paranoia is a bad thing in a candidate.

Try it again - you've only heard voices from your refrigerator. Did they say "ZUUL?"

Just damn.

If you want on the new list, FReepmail me. This IS a high-volume PING list...

I read it somewhere… I wrote it down, and then I read it.

Matched up against six of the nine Democratic candidates, Clark polled in first place.

Exclude Dean, Kerry, and Lieberman, the only ones with any name recognition(well, Sharpton's works against him) and I might come in number one against that field just by eenie-meenie-miney-moe!

It was my impression that Clark was hand-picked by Clinton. Both from Arkansas, both dems, etc.

I think the general also forgot someone has his prognostications on tape....

My hunch is that he's really campaigning for the VP spot.

There's a good way to end this retired general's prospective presidential bid: ask him about the "Pristina Airport" fiasco.

Clark is a pathetic idiot - he should never have been hired - only the un-intelligent would hire him.
