What You Say Can (and Will!) Come Back to Bite You in the A$$

"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.
~~~
…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."

Scott McClellan referencing former Bush White House counter-terrorism czar Richard Clarke, “Against All Enemies: Inside America’s War on Terror,” on March 22, 2004>

It has also come out that George Soros is the financial backing behind this book.

This gut is a loser who will betray his own mother for the right price.

Great find Word. BTW how did you do the high light thing. That was pretty cool!

ken,

If you click on the FA link, you'll find a pretty thorough post on what's available, thus far.

The highlighting is easy to do if you have a black template, like I do. If you find out what font color your background is done in, try doing the text in the same font color and see what happens.

I've done the highlighting before, but I don't think my readers ever figured it out, since I didn't say what to do. I remember doing an entire post with "invisible ink", and I don't think anyone figured it out.

Sad.

I just assumed, someone would be bright and bold enough to figure it out.

Huh. Imagine that! In today's techno-aided media, one best have an excellent grasp on one's public statements because, as you have clearly proven, occasionally one's past can catch up to one's present.

Proving, of course, what a puerile poseur is Scott McC.

P.S.
With your black background format, that was an excellent "highlight," if you will, to your blog.

Poor Scottie. Tossing character and ethics to the wind, he settles for the fast buck. I'm working on a post, too. And, which network did he choose to do the first interview? Yeah, NBC and the Today Show. The top Bush bashing network.

Disgraceful.

That little SOB alway's did look like a Deer in the headlight's to me.

I think he just found a great way to end his dreadful career.

I must admit, I had no idea what you were doing either until you said "Highlight Here".
