Kicking the crap out of Scotty

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

He's such a weasel and the White House Press Corps nailed him today. E&P has the transcript and this is how they describe it:

White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan had not had a full-length press briefing in Washington, D.C. for weeks, and after today, may have wished he had postponed this one. With almost unprecedented vigor, the press corps attacked and probe the federal response to the hurricane disaster, the president's personal responsibility and failure to fire anyone who failed in his or her mission....
Definitely, definitely worth a read. It will release some of your pent up frustration.

Besides muttering "blame game" over and over, Scotty did say the buck stops with Bush:
Q I just want to follow up on David's questions on accountability. First, just to get you on the record, where does the buck stop in this administration?

MR. McCLELLAN: The President.

Q All right. So he will be held accountable as the head of the government for the federal response that he's already acknowledged was inadequate and unacceptable?

MR. McCLELLAN: The President's most important responsibility is the safety and security of the American people. He talks about that often. That is his most important responsibility. Again, there's going to be plenty of time to look at the facts and determine what went wrong and what went right and how the coordination was between the state and federal and local authorities. Right now we've got to continue doing everything we can in support of the ongoing operational activities on the ground in the region to help people.
Uh-oh, someone better tell the President and we are holding him responsible.
