Immigration at the White House

Looks like the White House Press Secretary is calling it a day. I don't envy Scott McClellan and the job he had at the White House. He worked for a bunch of folks that hate the press and avoid them like they have the plague. Scott was in the catch twenty-two situation. He had to report the news from the White House and the facts he was given were not given willingly. He had to come up with more ways to say "No comment." or "I do not know." or "I'm not aware of that." than anyone in his position in history.

This is a White House that thinks it owns the world news information and not leaking to the press is an art form that some of them are being prosecuted for. Technicalities are a bitch for some and a win win for others. Scooter Libby is working his own defense. He will pay for others indescretions or his lawyers will spin it somehow that it was something other than what it truly was.

Some friends have clipped some moving van coupons from the paper for all the folks that are going to be leaving Washington, D.C. in the next few weeks. I'm mailing them off to the people I think will be out of the Bush administration over the next couple of weeks. Don has asked for mutiple coupons and Carl has asked to be kept in mind for a few extra coupons.

What drives me nuts about this whole Bush shuffle of people is that not one of the networks has made up a list of who is going. Anyone knowing of a list please let me know. I'd love to compare notes.


President Bush has to come away with something from this visit that is on the table. No matter what it is, he has to come off as the victor and for President Hu to go home he has to go with something as well on the table victorious. We shall all see what they both are happy about in the days to come.
