    awhile back. He was playing the disillusioned insider that was duped by the "real" insiders to the hilt. He tried several times to talk about "his small role" and about "viewing history" rather than about his large role as PR flack for the illegal and treasonous actions of his administration.

    I almost puked.

    At the same time though he say straight out that he thinks the people at fault are the ones that we think are at fault. He soft pedals Bush most of the way through while blaming Cheney, Rove, and Libby for the most part but he eventually gets around to saying Bush did it too.

    But he tries to play the high road of great moral beliefs that are let down by the power playing realities of Washington insiders.

    I witnessed too many of his press conferences to feel like letting him off the hook but I do believe a least a little of his bullshit and do give him credit for saying straight out that the illegal bastards did illegal things and lied to him and the nation.

    He wants to get away from this train wreck with at least some portion of his own reputation in tack.

    This is another step is playing the disillusioned outsider.

      Chief liar for the worst administration in history. "I didn't know!" What a load of horse shit. His job was to stonewall and evade and obfuscate and repeat lies over and over. He knew exactly what was happening. What a lying piece of shit.
