    This doesn't surprise me. The guy always looked like he was in intense physical pain from all the b$ he had to sling. It was pretty clear he hated his job just by looking at his face.

    yay!!! fat scottie is finally outta there! now maybe we can get a competent press secretary in there who will actually answer questions instead of dodging them. it's probably not up to the PS to decide that, though. i'm sure the gag-order comes from rove or someone else. speaking of rove, he's stepping down as a presidential advisor to start planning the smear campaign against the republican's opponents in the upcomming mid-term elections.

    They tend to step down after about every 2 years to a year and a half.--

    True, but few have had such an adversarial relationship with the press as he has.

    The fun part is that McClellan has the press worked up into such a habit of attacking him and beating him up that whoever takes over for him is going to be immediately shredded to bits on their first press conference. :D

    'bout time. The man was incompetant. If Bush had any brains I would've fired him years ago. The man was quite simply bad at his job. No way around it.

    Yes. This is not a surprise, though I think he lasted longer than that.

    yeah, but i have a feeling he was doing exactly what the administration wanted him to do, dodge questions. that's all he did.

    Looks like Karl Rove is stepping aside a policy advisor to the President also.

    doesn't look like it. that old coot seems to have bush's full support. further proof that bush is out of touch with the rest of the country.

    I'm just about positive that his annoucement of resignation is the only actual information he's given out to reporters.

    I wonder if there's any members of the press that don't believe he's really resigning? LOL!

    Cant really balme the guy. His heart must be black after all these years of lying and dodging questions.
