The White House has shifted from its original position to state that it now is willing to consider using bailout funds from the $700-billion Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP, to keep the country’s top three automakers afloat. The announcement comes after negotiations in Congress to provide a $14-billion bailout to Detroit broke down.
Turns out that the current White House press secretary, Dana Perino (pictured), has broached the uncomfortable topic (considering her position) of Scott McClellan’s upcoming book. Unsurprisingly, Perino reported in an off-camera moment during Monday’s White House press briefing that Bush never knowingly misinformed McClellan.
The White House should hand out pamphlets featuring stock photos of squealing, happy children and serene-looking seniors entitled “Global Warming And You!” after spokeswoman Dana Perino’s startling musings about possible “health benefits” of global warming. Perino made the comments, with a disclaimer, in speaking with reporters Wednesday at the White House.
