Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

AFP: Obama not paying any attention to 2012; AP: Obama holding tons of fundraisers for 2012

Jim Geraghty compares and contrasts, then he quips:

The contradiction here is probably just a matter of the left hand not knowing what the further-left hand is doing.

Quote of the day

Bob Dole goes off on Scotty Mac, and Crush Liberalism likes it very much:

“There are miserable creatures like you in every administration who don’t have the guts to speak up or quit if there are disagreements with the boss or colleagues,” Dole wrote in a message sent yesterday morning. “No, your type soaks up the benefits of power, revels in the limelight for years, then quits and, spurred on by greed, cashes in with a scathing critique.”

Dole assures McClellan that he won’t read the book — “because if all these awful things were happening, and perhaps some may have been, you should have spoken up publicly like a man, or quit your cushy, high-profile job.”

“That would have taken integrity and courage but then you would have had credibility and your complaints could have been aired objectively,” Dole concludes. “You’re a hot ticket now, but don’t you, deep down, feel like a total ingrate?” 

Ouch.  That’s bound to annoy Scotty Mac’s buddy George Soros.

McClellan to back Obama?

Scotty Mac gets a paycheck from a Soros front group to publish a hit piece on his former boss and friend, and miracle of miracles, mother of all coinkidinks…he’s probably gonna vote for the Obamessiah!

This revelation was made on the little-watched MSNBC show with Keith Olbermann.  Yeah, the same Blabbermann who once called Scotty Mac’s behavior “treasonous” is now, as sheer unadulterated luck would have it, good buddies with McClellan.  Unless I had a fat payday waiting for me, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be fraternizing with a moonbat who called my behavior “treasonous”, but I’m kinda funny that way.

McClellan’s book tied to George Soros?

On a tip from KG, I searched for the connection between George Soros and the publishing of Scott McClellan’s new book.

Bingo.  Looks like Rove was on to something when he said that Scotty Mac sounded like a moonbat blogger.  I’m sure it’s just a big coinkidink, right?

Scotty Mac says he has a “higher loyalty”, and that is a “loyalty to the truth.”  It looks more like loyalty to Soros’ big bucks.

Night and Day, Scott McClellan edition

Let me get this out of the way: I don’t have a problem with former White House aides of either party writing about their experiences once they are no longer in their positions…so long as it’s true.

Is it possible that McClellan is telling the truth about the administration in his new book?  Of course it is.  Is it possible that McClellan is, as Rush puts it, seduced by the allure of approval from the left?  Of course it is.

Is it possible that McClellan is a flaming hypocrite?  Not only is it possible, it’s a certainty.  From the ABC News blog:

Before he wrote his own memoir, White House press secretary Scott McClellan was rather critical of those who did the same.

In fact, some of the same language now being used to trash McClellan he himself used to trash previous administration authors.

On the book critical of the Bush White House written in cooperation with former Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill, “The Price of Loyalty: George W. Bush, the White House, and the Education of Paul O’Neill,” McClellan said on January 12, 2004:

McCLELLAN: “It appears to be more about trying to justify personal views and opinions than it does about looking at the results that we are achieving on behalf of the American people.”

McClellan also took issue with the book by former Bush White House counter-terrorism czar Richard Clarke, “Against All Enemies: Inside America’s War on Terror,” on March 22, 2004:

McCLELLAN: Well, why, all of a sudden, if he had all these grave concerns, did he not raise these sooner? This is one-and-a-half years after he left the administration. And now, all of a sudden, he’s raising these grave concerns that he claims he had. And I think you have to look at some of the facts. One, he is bringing this up in the heat of a presidential campaign. He has written a book and he certainly wants to go out there and promote that book. Certainly let’s look at the politics of it. His best buddy is Rand Beers, who is the principal foreign policy advisor to Senator Kerry’s campaign. The Kerry campaign went out and immediately put these comments up on their website that Mr. Clarke made. …

Q: Scott, the whole point of his book is he says that he did raise these concerns and he was not listened to by his superiors.

McCLELLAN: Yes, and that’s just flat-out wrong. …When someone uses such charged rhetoric that is just not matched by the facts, it’s important that we set the record straight. And that’s what we’re doing. If you look back at his past comments and his past actions, they contradict his current rhetoric. I talked to you all a little bit about that earlier today. Go back and look at exactly what he has said in the past and compare that with what he is saying today.



“Good enough for me, but not for thee” has been a leftist mindset for decades.  McClellan’s assimilation into the left is complete.
