This is an interesting, and humorous, clip montage of Scott McClellan’s press secretary career:
Archive for May, 2008
Former Bush White House press secretary Scott McClellan follows in dad Barr McClellan’s footsteps with yet another dredging of the presidential politics depths. Barr McClellan failed miserably in his attempt to pin the JFK assassination on LBJ. Published by the obscure Hanover House, the book, Blood, Money, and Power drew severe criticism and its message fell on deaf ears. Scott McClellan’s book, the just out What Happened…?, is another matter entirely as it feeds into the blood thirst of the rabid anti-Bush folks, increasingly numerous indeed. Sure to become a major bestseller, the Scott McClellan book seems transparently to follow Dad McClellan’s scandalmongering ways. Whereas Blood, Money, and Power failed utterly, What Happened? seems likely to payoff big time for Scott the Snitch.
Bush Chimp vs Obama Chimp….
How come this is OK…..
…But this isn’t….
A bunch of people in Marietta, Georgia were protesting this one; it is a tee shirt sold by a bar owner who says he has no racist intent, merely thinks the resemblance between Obama and Curious George is humorous. I agree, the big ears, the big smile, uncanny! Look what “W” had to put up with going on 8 years. What do you think?
You know, I’m starting to really like this McCain fellow. Just yesterday I was mocking him as John McGreen because of his pandering to the libs and embrace of the anthropogenic global warming hoax. But today, in an address before the National Rifle Association in Kentucky John McCain stuck it big time to Barack (Zerobama*) Obama. There is no issue more important at this time in our history than the war on terror so I can, for the moment, leave aside my misgivings about McCain’s scurry to the left in search of blessings from Reagan democrats and independents. How thin skinned is this Obama fellow and his media toadies. President Bush, in his speech before the Knesset, spoke of appeasement in the modern period and could have been referring to Neville Chamberlain, Jimmy Carter or, yes, even Barack Obama. No name was singled out yet the outcry from the left and the media was instantaneous; actually laughable in it’s defensiveness. But, back to John McCain:
What John McCain said today in his NRA address will be a defining moment in this election cycle. He particularly noted Obama’s absolute lack of foreign policy credentials, his naive belief that we can sit down and chat with thugs and terrorists and expect them to come around to our point of view. Following is a portion of John McCain’s remarks:
“I have some news for Senator Obama,” McCain began, “Talking, not even with soaring rhetoric, in unconditional meetings with the man who calls Israel a stinking corpse, and arms terrorists who kill Americans will not convince Iran to give up its nuclear program.”
“It is reckless to suggest that unconditional meetings will advance our interests,” McCain said, to a round of applause at the NRA conference. “You know it would be a wonderful thing if we lived in a world where we don’t have enemies. But that’s not the world we live in. And until senator Obama understands that reality, the American people have every reason to doubt whether he has the strength, judgment and determination to keep us safe.” (emphasis added)
Update: According to Palm Beach Post the house has been sold for $95 million (7/16/08)
What do you do when you pay 100 million for the grandest house and property in Palm Beach FL? A house, by the way, that was recently renovated to the tune of $25 million; a renovation overseen by Kendra Todd, winner of the third season of Trump’s TV show The Apprentice. The redo resulted in a 62,000-square- foot mansion with nine bedrooms, a ballroom, a conservatory and a 48-car garage, and 475 feet of unobstructed oceanfront. Answer: You tear it down and subdivide!
The Donald, who paid $41.3 million, now has it under contract for $100 million (reduced from 125 million!), to an unnamed foreign buyer (who) “is considering tearing down the recently remodeled mansion and possibly subdividing the property, according to sources” The address, in case you want to ogle or Google, is 515 N. County Road in Palm Beach.

This is a banner in the merch section of the John McGreen for President website. As part of his march to the left and embrace of the anthropogenic global warming hoax he is selling eco-friendly (whatever that means) tee shirts, bags etc at exorbitant prices.
On McGreen’s speech yesterday in Oregon, the Wall Street Journal concludes:
|The compliance bookkeeping for this new “market” is vastly complex, and a McCain Administration would create a public-private “Climate Change Credit Corporation” to oversee it all. This new regulatory body is likely to morph over time into an “Energy Fed,” similar to the one Warner-Lieberman would create. Such an agency would set the price of energy indirectly by fiddling with carbon levies, which will undoubtedly lead to economy-wide distortions.
Given the distance between Mr. McCain’s rhetoric and the policy reality, we wonder if he even knows what he’s proposing. This is of a piece with his approach to many domestic issues, where the policy contradictions and cul-de-sacs overwhelm his professed political convictions. The McCain campaign believes his global-warming plan will appeal to independents and young people, as well as separate the Senator from President Bush.
But he will never be green enough for the climate-change fundamentalists. The Obama campaign and Democrats were already dinging Mr. McCain yesterday for half-measures. His concessions won’t help him much in November, but they will make his governing decisions in 2009 that much more difficult if by some chance he does win.
