Perino on McClellan

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Perino expressed disappointment with McCllelan's new book."]
(CNN) - White House Press Secretary Dana Perino just released the following statement on former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan's new book.

"Scott, we now know, is disgruntled about his experience at the White House. For those of us who fully supported him, before, during and after he was press secretary, we are puzzled. It is sad – this is not the Scott we knew.

"The book, as reported by the press, has been described to the President. I do not expect a comment from him on it – he has more pressing matters than to spend time commenting on books by former staffers."

    Wait a year, Perino will be writing a book. The Bush Administration disgust me. Vote for Obama because the same idiots and crooks will be running McCains White House.

    I have to agree with the White House on this. This guy is only looking to sell some books about a bunch of lies because he isn't smart enough to do anything else. And by the way, I never knew that Dana Perino was such a beautiful woman. I saw her picture, and thought WOW!!!! If she's married then her husband is a lucky man!

    Question – why hasn't the Bush administration been put through an impeachment process yet? It sounds like they all qualify for it.

    Get over it Perino.

    I guess this is why they say "the truth hurts".

    He probably knew more about the terrible things being done by these criminals that didn't even mention for his own life safety!

    More pressing matters? Like healthcare? The economy? Immigration Reform?

    ...Wait, these are all things he has never attempted to address. So what the hell are these "more pressing matters"?!

    THIS coming from a bimbo who didn't even know what the hell the Cuban Missle Crisis was.

    This administration is FULL of idiots who don't know what they are talking about.

    McClellan told the truth. His guilty conscience finally caught up with him.

    So smug she looks in her photo. So smug are those Bush-ites. The truth will out and no one needs to be told what is what. Actions always speak louder than words and our ears have been numbed by the blast of bombs, the lies, the complete and unabashed duplicity of this administration. In my opinion, any one still defending Bush must have their hands out for a piece of his ill gotten gains. There is a God and His justice is swift. Beware!

    I wonder if Ms Perino will remember her remarks concerning this incident when she publishes her tell-all book about her tenure in the same job.

    Me thinks this book is four years too late. It doesn't really matter now as Bush is leaving office. I guess its better late than never.

    Is anyone surprise that they would come out with the disgruntled employee story? No one is buying Bush B.S anymore!

    President Bush will not be commenting on the book because, alas, Bush cannot read.

    Scott McClellan is MY HERO!

    Finally somebody with a little bit of spine in the Bush Administration willing to tell the truth for once!

    When asked for comment on Scott McClellan's new book, President Bush replied "Needs more pictures."

    It's funny, anytime someone says the truth about things and it's unflattering then it must be a disgruntled employee. Dana Perino CANNOT refute one thing said in the McClellan so instead she chooses to issue a statement (Who asked her anyway) saying that this is not the McClellan that they knew and supported. Read between the lines folks ... everything McClellan said is the honest to god truth because not one BUSHIE has refuted any of it. They just slam McClellan.

    Wow... what will you bitter losers have to gripe about when Bush is gone? You won't have anything to do after January. Awww.....

    And how hilarious it will be when the Democrats squander away what should be a slam dunk of a win in November. LOL!

    Go McCain!

    Dana Pinocchio is a big liar. She has just as much integrity as Bush has. NONE.
