(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."

Her book will come out in 2009! She will be saying the same things as Scott.
Bush is a terrible president who used religion to get in the white house and then evil to stay and promote war.
hi dana, it's me again. if you can read you should take the time to read the comments............. "you can't fool all of the people all of the time"..... i think either bill or hillary took credit for that quip.
We figured out a long time ago that George Bush doesn't have a clue...about anything.
I voted for Kerry. Wasn't a registered voter the first time. I knew Bush was dirty from the start. McCain's not the experience this country needs right now. Change it when you vote.
No doubt. The Scott that they thought they knew. Was supposed to lie and support this horrible war that Bush initiated to avenge a death threat that Saddam made against his Dad. Scott always looked strained when he was on TV. It was clear that his heart was not in to what he was saying. We have endured eight years of lies and foolishness. If McBush is elected we will endure four more years of the McSame thing.
OK. Now this summer we need to have one of this nation biggest anti-war protest ever! And, call for Bush to be kicked out and face war crimes!
Go Obama! This is one to whack McSame upside his head with!!!
Yes we can and yes we will!
omg, dana..................you and boy blunder are sooooooooooooo 20minutes ago...........
WE WILL BE WAITING FOR HER BOOK OF TRUTH TO COME OUT IN A FEW MONTHS ALSO.
This type of lying is so disgusting and Bush and his administration should be called what they are [TRAITORS].........
Hey Campaign Strategist:
You are absolutely wrong. There is so much more to the Bush legacy than the war in Iraq. $3.5 trillion in debt, an anemic economy, declining real wages and standard of living, failed energy policy, record energy prices, housing market collapse, record foreclosures, curbing civil rights, use of torture, fewer allies, more enemies, Kyoto, Enron, Worldcom, Walter Reed, Plout (sp?), and so, so, so much more.
Wash your hands over and over again McClellan. You, Bush, Cheney, the Supreme Court and the media will never get the blood off your hands.
PUZZLED? Does the administrations gang-toitie on Richard Clark ring a bell Dana? Get real.
“We are puzzled” … “it is sad” … and, no comment from Bush who has “more pressing matters” than this!!?? Such serious charges by a former press secretary with whom he had a close relationship and Bush has no comment?! Wow. Well then, that pretty much confirms all of it.
I'm not a supporter of Bush by any means but I say big deal about McClellan. We all know the administration lied. If these guys had principles and moral character they would have resigned on the spot. Instead they sign multi-million dollar book deals to spill the beans later on. It's all a pile of garbage and it's time we Americans take out the trash.
of course the truth hurts so you will always be puzzled
People in the Bush administration spewed only lies whenever they opened their mouth. Scott McCallen wants to redeem himself, because he knows he will go to h*ll with Bush and Cheney if he didn't. Why do you think Tony Snow left? He wanted to be a honest man during his remaining years before his cancer gets to him. God bless both Scott and Tony!
I for one will be pre-ordering that book to read it. The information in that book is what we knew all along. Bush has continoulsy lied, cheated and bogarted his way through his terms.
I'm telling you, if we (the people) don't be careful and if McCain in voted in, it will be the same thing all over again
Hmmmm....after seven years, we're Finally Getting the INSIDE Story...about time. Gooooooo Obama 08
"We aren't puzzled, we're stupid"!
I’m glad McClellan chose now to release his book and raise this issue. It will refresh more than it already is how corrupt and self serving the republican bush base really is. We dems and newly awakened republicans need to stand tall and unite under whoever is nominated for the democratic party. Whether its Hillary or Obama! As long as it isn’t McCain/bush!
Well Ms. Perino, I guess it isn't the Scott YOU know.
The truth hurts, but it sets you free. America will soon be free of Bush. Right now the truth is only hurting McCain/Bush because the rest of America knew the truth all along. America can hear Cheney screaming "So?".
Just more Perrino/Administration spin. Listening to/Reporting on what she, Bush, Cheney, et al, have to say is basically a waste of time. The only useful aspect of reporting on what they have to say and what they do is to make sure there is some modicum of restraint on them.
This is simply more ammunition that both our President and Vice should have been impeached.
Unfortunately, the Democrats share some of the blame for not performing their constitutional duties, including bringing and end to this "war".
One thing is for sure Halliburton, Blackwater and all the rest are laughing all the way to the bank, and our grandchildren will be footing the bill.
Perino is obviously brainwashed by the Bush administration herself. Either that or she is an incredibly good liar or is extremely incompitent. Anything coming from the Bush press is uncredible and should be treated as such.
