When Terry McAuliffe has the moral high ground, you know you are in trouble.
[Politico]I would also say, and I gotta add a personal thing, I never like it when someone works for someone and then comes out and writes a book trashing them. I just think that is, I don’t care if it is politics or life, if he was that upset about everything, he should have quit. Remember Gerald Ford’s press secretary quit when he disagreed with pardoning, Ford pardoning Nixon. If you don’t agree, then get out. And I just, I find it abhorrent the way these people come out and write books about their boss. It made ’em money, it made ’em prestige, it gave them all this power and then they turn around and slap ’em. I just, I gotta tell you, I just uh, I don’t care who it is- Democrat, Republican- it’s wrong.
And a little Bob Dole for good measure.
[Foxnews]”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,” the five-term Kansas senator wrote to McClellan. “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.”
He continues: “When the money starts rolling in you should donate it to a worthy cause, something like, ‘Biting The Hand That Fed Me.’ Another thought is to weasel your way back into the White House if a Democrat is elected. That would provide a good set up for a second book deal in a few years.”
