I guess Scott McClellan was right

Former Bush press secretary has been savaged by the right wing snice the publication of his new book. One of the charges McClellan makes is that intelligence was cherry picked and oversold to the public to make the case for war.

A new report from the Senate backed by Democrats and some Republicans agrees with this assessment.  Here’s the story from yesterday’s New York Times.

Now does this constitute lying to the public by President Bush and Vice President Cheney?  Isn’t this a whole lot worse and more serious than Bill Clinton understating his relationship with Monica Lewinsky?  

How much would you like to bet that this President issues a sweeping pardon of all those involved in his administration, including himself, out the door in January 2009.

    Well, Thom Hartmann made a great observation last week. IN all the condemning by the pundits and Bush talking heads not one of them said he “lied” or he was a “liar”.

    Heather, you’re right. It’s always something like “He’s just disgruntled” or “this isn’t the Scott McClellan I knew” or “if he had concerns he should have brought them up while in the job”. You never hear a factual refutation of what McClellan has stated in his book.
