A huge deal is being made in the news media concerning Scott McClellan’s new book that supposedly ‘exposes the truth’ about the Bush administration.
Of course, all those media outlets are neglecting to state the publisher of the book is owned by a company controlled by George Soros. Remember the story a few weeks ago about David Brock (the previous Republican turned ultraliberal) going to meet with Soros in New York about something? I am guessing McClellan’s book was the subject of that meeting.
McClellan, like his namesake from the Civil War, has decided to harm a sitting president in the middle of a war based primarily on promoting freedom by coming out and attacking him. Now, whether he turns out as rabid as Brock has will be determined. However, this does prove one major thing about the Bush administration even if most of the speculation in the book about what happened in meetings McClellan did not attend is not true:
The Bush administration’s hiring practices leave something to be desired.
This is why ‘yes-men’ are the worst possible thing to surround yourself with when you are in a position of authority. Sorry, Scotty, but that’s what you were. You may now be having a crisis of conscience, but you were a yes-man. Now, you are a yes-man to Brock and Soros because you want to be liked, even though the only reason you kept the job you had was because you kowtowed well.
Let’s be honest, McClellan’s ineptitude at his job is one of the prime reasons Bush’s ratings are now abysmal. The decline started because of McClellan’s inability to be a spokesman. That started the Bush administration on the wrong foot, and it has spiraled downward ever since.
