    McClellan is bullish today, but he expects definitive peak in stocks between Aug. 20 and Aug. 26 Tom McClellan loves doing what financial advisers tell you not to do. He tries to time the financial markets — to the exact day, if his charts align just right. At the moment, they are telling him to be bullish on the stock market for all of his trading time frames, including those that trade every few days, weeks and months. But bulls should be ready to flee, as soon as this week. That’s because McClellan said his timing models suggest “THE” top...

    Jeff points me to a paper by Chandler McClellan and Erdal Tekin which begins as follows: The controversies surrounding Stand Your Ground laws have recently captured the nation’s attention. Since 2005, eighteen states have passed laws extending the right to self-defense with no duty to retreat to any place a person has a legal right to be, and several additional states are debating the adoption of similar legislation. Despite the implications that these laws may have for public safety, there has been little empirical investigation of their impact on crime and victimization. In this paper, we use monthly data from...
  • Ex-Bush Spokesman (McClellan) Backs Obama

    10/24/2008 5:06:28 AM PDT · by meandog · 38 replies · 934+ views
    The former press secretary to George Bush has announced he is backing Barack Obama in the race to replace his ex-boss as US president. Scott McClellan said on Thursday that he had decided to back the Democrat because he wanted to support the candidate with the best chance of changing the way Washington - the political heart of the US - works and gets things done. His announcement is yet another blow to the campaign of John McCain, the Republican contender, who is struggling to erode Obama's opinion poll lead. McClellan is the second former Bush administration figure this week...

    (CNN) — Scott McClellan, the former White House press secretary who sharply criticized President Bush in his memoir last spring, told CNN Thursday he's voting for Barack Obama. "From the very beginning I have said I am going to support the candidate that has the best chance for changing the way Washington works and getting things done and I will be voting for Barack Obama and clapping," McClellan told new CNN Host D.L. Hughley McClellan, a onetime Bush loyalist whose scathing critique of the president sent shock waves across Washington last spring, has long hinted he was leaning toward the...

    McClellan Late Show by: Ben Giles, June 25, 2008 Former press secretary Scott McClellan remains concerned about what he calls “a cloud of suspicion over the White House,” particularly concerning the leak of undercover CIA operative Valerie Plame’s identity. In his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on June 19, McClellan expressed his frustration over alleged leaks and cover-ups by White House officials, and questioned the possible involvement of Vice President Dick Cheney. “I do not think the President had any knowledge,” said McClellan. “In terms of the Vice President, I do not know.” The allegations at the time were...

    Ex-Bush aide critical of CIA 'leak' Scott McClellan, the former White House spokesman, has again criticised Bush administration officials for their role in covering up a leak that revealed a CIA operative's identity. McClellan told a congressional commitee on Friday he had reservations about publicly clearing Lewis "Scooter" Libby, an aide to Dick Cheney, over the leak, a claim that proved to be untrue. "I was reluctant to do it,'' McClellan told the Democratic party-led House Judiciary Committee. "I got on the phone with Scooter Libby and asked him point-blank, 'Were you involved in this in any way?' And he...

    Whatever Became of Scott McClellan? by: Rachel Paulk, June 23, 2008 Scott McClellan’s book What Happened spans a range of events that occurred during the Bush years, including the 9/11 and Katrina catastrophes, the Plame scandal, and the controversial Iraq War. McClellan also provides scathing profiles of the star-studded White House, criticizing Karl Rove, Condi Rice, Dick Cheney, and George W. Bush, among others. McClellan joined the Bush team when George W. was governor of Texas and planning on running for presidential office. Following Bush’s ascent to presidency, McClellan worked under Ari Fleischer as the principal deputy press secretary; after...

    Scott McClellan appeared before the House Judiciary committee yesterday. When asked about Joseph Wilson and the defamation of Wilson’s character by Sheila Jackson- Lee McClellan seemed to sympathize with the harm that had been done by the evil forces in the White House during and before his tenure as Press Secretary. Jackson-Lee asked McClellan specifically about the Uranium in Niger that Wilson reported on. Later in his testimony Scott was confronted by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) with some disturbing facts via a declassified CIA report. McClellan visually surprised with these facts began to backtrack. (Video Included)

    Applause erupted, the crowd parted and then... there he was. Scott McClellan strode into the bookstore wearing khaki pants and a light-blue buttoned-down shirt with the sleeves rolled up. There was standing room only-- almost everyone had arrived early to hear his insider's view on the workings of Washington. McClellan, the president's former spokesman, spoke last night in his first in-store appearance about his new tell-all book, "What Happened." The book has drawn considerable interest - McClellan says the Bush administration misled the public into war by grossly overstating the threat of Iraq. His book also reveals his personal account...

    In case you’ve been missing impeachment mob theater, the lead actor is back. Rep. Dennis Kucinich was back on the House floor tonight introducing a 35-count resolution to impeach President Bush. Kucinich delayed introducing the impeachment resolution after speaking with House Judiciary Committee members in January. Guess he got a green light. You’ll recall that five months ago, he promised to bring articles of impeachment against President Bush to the House floor on the day of the State of the Union address–and was forced to withdraw BDS remarks declaring the State of the Union a “lie.” (See WaPo editorial page...

    McClellan To Testify Before House WASHINGTON (AP) ― President Bush's former spokesman, Scott McClellan, will testify before a House committee next week about whether Vice President Dick Cheney ordered him to make misleading public statements about the leaking of CIA agent Valerie Plame's identity. McClellan will testify publicly and under oath before the House Judiciary Committee on June 20 about the White House's role in the leak and its response, his attorneys, Michael and Jane Tigar, said on Monday. In his new book, "What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington's Culture of Deception," McClellan said he was misled...

    He was a spokesman for the Chief. He traveled with him, conversed with him, shared meals and confidences with him, was certainly one of his closest friends. He learned from him, believed in him, benefited greatly from the association – and, when asked, would try to explain him and his mission to others. He was trusted. He was identified with the Chief, and he basked in that. Oh, he didn't go along with everything the Chief did, and he didn't fully understand all he said, but he tried faithfully to represent the man and what he was doing, and he...

    Scott McClellan: Not Saul, Not Paul Peter Wehner Web Exclusive By now Scott McClellan's credibility has been damaged. He has shown an inability to handle questions from CNN's Anderson Cooper, NBC's Tim Russert, and others. Watching Scott trying to defend himself and his new book, What Happened, was at times a painful experience. His I-was-Saul-but-now-I'm-Paul meme isn't convincing, and so once again he is left reaching for talking points in an effort to keep himself afloat.McClellan, never a memorable figure, will soon be forgotten. But before the door shuts completely on him, I want to examine some claims he...

    Scott McClellan, the former Press Secretary to President Bush (now a puppet for the Left) has written a book named, "What Happened," (probably ghost-written by the tripartite efforts of Nancy Pelosi, Howard Dean and Harry Reid) which suggests that: The president used propaganda at worst, or bogus intelligence at best, as a basis for the invasion of Iraq; that Scooter Libby, Vice president Cheney or Karl Rove leaked the name of the CIA operative, Valerie Plame, and if the president didn't authorize it, he, at least, had knowledge of it. Here is what really happened: • In February, 2002, Joseph...

    "We Were Lied To". This meme, which has been the mantra among supposed political "progressives" for years now, was reignited over the weekend with the publication of a memoir by former Bush press secretary Scott McLellan claiming that President Bush and his cronies wove a spell of lies to get a war in Iraq underway. This is the narrative that Americans tell themselves to prove that, if it weren't for bad leaders, we would be a morally upright nation. I don't think so. And, remember, I write the following as a registered Democrat (and an Obama voter in my primary...

    WASHINGTON - Vice President Dick Cheney on Monday rejected a suspension of the federal gasoline tax as proposed by his party's presumptive presidential nominee, Sen. John McCain. Cheney said it would offer little help to consumers coping with gas prices around $4 a gallon. The vice president's critique went further than President Bush's own comments on the idea, which appears dead anyway. "I think it's a false notion, in the sense that you're not going to have much of an impact, given the size of the gasoline tax on the total cost of the gallon of gas," Cheney said when...

    And having read the book, I have to hand it to McClellan. In a genre as routinely and justly derided as the Washington memoir, it takes a special talent to produce a specimen that even by those standards is this flaming-dirigible bad. It’s usually the sign of a weak reviewer that he feels the need to extrapolate some sort of psychoanalysis from the text, but in McClellan case it’s unavoidable. In fact, once I began reading McClellan’s book, I had to seek outside counsel to confirm my suspicions about his precarious mental state. Political consultant Mary Matalin — no stranger...
