    A nice contingent of FReepers, including the famous Robinson family of Fresno, along with some UCLA young Republicans made it to the Dr. Phil show this morning to give support to Ann Coulter. Okay, so the headline was hyperbolic. We actually didn't invade. We got reservations. It was an interesting show with Annie not shy whatsover in telling the L.A. audience the way things should be. Thanks to Ron Dog for his organizing skills in making it happen. Ann had a great deal of support in the audience as she opposed Alan Colmes and then lying, backstabbing, weasel Scott McClellan....
  • McClellan: Obama Made 'No Mistakes' in Nancy-Mocking Presser

    Message to Scott McClellan: when your guy's gaffe merits a screaming headline at Drudge [see after the jump] about how he's had to apologize for what he said, he's messed up. Big time. But that didn't stop Pres. Bush's former press secretary—turned Soros-paid scrivener—from going on TV and proclaiming that Obama had turned in a flawless performance in his debut presser today as president-elect. McClellan appeared on MSNBC's "1600 Pennsylvania Avenue," David Gregory's post-election vehicle taking the place of "Race for the White House." In an odd bit of balance, McClellan, who endorsed Obama, was on with former Clinton press...
  • 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...

    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)
  • Wexler: McClellan's Testimony Justifies Cheney's Impeachment

    CBS News ^ | June 20, 2008 | John Bresnahan
    Rep. Robert Wexler (D-Fla.), one of the most vocal opponents of the Bush administration on Capitol Hill, said Scott McClellan's book and testimony justify the beginning of impeachment hearings against Vice President Dick Cheney. During questioning of McClellan, Wexler asked the former White House press secretary if he believed Bush authorized the leaking of Valerie Plame Wilson's name. When McClellan said no, Wexler said this meant that Cheney must have been the source of the leak, meaning Cheney was seeking to retaliate against the wife of an administration critic. In Wexler's view, this would be enough to support the initation...

  • McClellan's Lawyer Defended Lynne Stewart

    Agrees To Testify Against Cheney About PlameSo much for Scott McClellan's claims to move beyond the partisanship of Washington. The former White House Press Secretary has agreed to tesify about the disclosure of Valerie Plame's identity before Democratic Rep. John Conyers' House Judiciary Committee. Sadly, it now appears that Scott is less of "useful idiot" than a closet liberal. The Associated Press identifies McClellan's legal team as Michael and Jane Tigar. Michal Tigar represented terrorist sympathizer lawyer Lynne Stewart, who served prison time after being convicted of assisting her client Sheikh Omar Abdul-Rahman, also known as "The Blind Sheikh." Rahman...

    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’s Glaring Omission

    The Old Media feeding frenzy surrounding former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan’s “tell all” book continued unabated this week across television, radio, print and the Internet. However, something is noticeably absent from the volume that sparked a jubilant liberal orgy: Jeff Gannon. Howard Kurtz noted the omission in his Washington Post column Monday pointing out McClellan’s first cable talk show appearance was an interview with MSNBC’s Bush-hating Keith Olbermann: Olbermann hailed the book, "What Happened," as "a primary document of American history" that contained "poetry." Talk about role reversal: It was Olbermann who said in 2005 that "whenever I...

    In the media week that has been Scott McClellan, my former colleague has had his motives questioned, his character impugned, and his own book dismissed as something he could not possibly have written himself. Yet in the midst of the storm, the press has largely skipped over what is at once Scott's central claim, and his silliest argument: that the president's big mistake was to embrace the "permanent campaign" and that this led to a strategy that meant "never reflecting, never reconsidering, never compromising. Especially not where Iraq was concerned." The decisions on Iraq that followed Scott's departure tell a...

    I just watched the interview, and it is clear Scott McClellan is a Judas. He revels in the left talking points and has a smirk throughout the interview. At the end of the day when the interviews are done and the book no longer sells, Scott will have no friends. The left will not want him and the right will never touch him. Get a dog Scott, he will be your only friend. Or he might not like you either. Can't blame him, dogs are smart. History will frame you as the Judas Benedict Arnold you are.

    If you want to read a serious book about the intervention in Iraq, look to Douglas Feith. When Bush's Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill defected from the Cabinet in 2002 and Ron Suskind told O'Neill's story of being surrounded by fools, Michael Kinsley observed that the president deserved all he got from the book. Anyone dumb enough to hire a fool like O'Neill in the first place ought to have known what to expect. So it goes with the ludicrous figure of Scott McClellan. I used to watch this mooncalf blunder his way through press conferences and think, Exactly where do...

    Former Press Secretary Scott McClellan's new book, What Happened, is sinking about as fast as it was able to rear is ugly head in the first place. Largley considered a political hatchet job, it is becoming more and more clear that McClellan is the one who lied in writing the book, and some, including Bob Novak, are wondering if McClellan even wrote many parts of the book at all. As a matter of fact, Novak's column is where we will start. --- On July 14, 2003, one day before McClellan took a press secretary's job for which many colleagues felt...

    Although today his book is being touted by left-wing reporters and pundits, his initial plans for the project show former White House press secretary Scott McClellan intended to take a much different approach, one that was more sympathetic to President Bush but also quite hard on the "liberal elites" of the Washington press corps and their "hostility" toward the administration. Reading through McClellan's original book proposal, obtained by Politico.com, it is clear that before his editor Peter Osnos took the book on a sharp leftward turn, McClellan wanted to turn the tables on foes in the press gallery including far-left...

    In my opinion, Scott McClellan was one of the worst White House press secretaries ever. He was often short with reporters and refused to say anything about anything that was not in his talking points. He did not seem to know what role the White House press corps played in the functioning of the government. When McClellan did not want to answer a question, he would “refer” you to other agencies or to the vice president's office. In fact, McClellan had three standard evasive practices. One was the referral, which he learned from his predecessor Ari Fleischer. The second was...

    Here’s how you sell a book. It’s easy. First, get a job in the administration of George W. Bush. You have to keep it for awhile – I mean, certainly more than a week or two – so you can claim some degree of credibility. Then get out of Dodge (getting fired for being ineffectual is not a problem), turn around and write a book that parrots everything Bush’s critics say about him. Welcome to the top of the New York Times bestseller list. It’s not even hard. The mainstream media and the Democrats pretty much write the book for...

    "Mr. McClellan announced his resignation at the side of Mr. Bush on the White House lawn, but in sometimes emotional remarks he did not say what he would be doing or who would be succeeding him. It was unclear if Mr. McClellan had acted on his own or had been encouraged to leave after his two years and nine months as Mr. Bush's chief spokesman." --New York Times, on Scott McClellan's resignation, April 19, 2006 Former White House Press Secretary, Scott McClellan, counts the number of former colleagues' backs he's climbed on to promote his book.Much as we tried to...
