I know McClelland (and the rest of the media) isn't going to call President Bush a liar, but I will. Why are people are afraid to hold the president accountable for his lies? Obviously no one because rarely do you see anyone challenging his shifty position on Iraq or anything for that matter. When Bill Clinton was president, everybody called him a liar and an adulterer. President Bush certainly has more blood on his hands than President Clinton; his lies have cost many people their lives in Iraq, Afghanistan and even Louisiana.
In excerpts from his upcoming book, What Happened, McClelland comes off like a naive, idealistic sap but I'm not buying his carefully, crafted naivete; he's just trying to sell some books. One of the funniest quotes in the book is about the outing of Valerie Plame as a C.I.A. agent to the press. When questioned about the source of the leak, he says:
I've known Karl for a long time, and I didn't even need to go ask Karl, because I know the kind of person that he is, and he is someone that is committed to the highest standards of conduct.Not only was Rove involved but so was the President, Vice President and Scooter Libby. If I recall, President Bush promised to hunt down the blabbermouth and have their head on a stick or something like that. If what McClelland said is true, we need to start with the deceitful, duplicitous President first. I'm tired of his lies and hypocrisy. He's played us (the American people) like a bunch of bobble-headed saps with his $4.00 a gallon gasoline, phony patriotism and unhealthy obsession with all things O.J.
The countdown to the 2008 Presidential elections has begun, at least for me anyway.
