Scott McClellan Vs. Trent Lott

The White House is trying to paint Senate resistance to President Bush’s nominee to the United Nations, John Bolton, as partisan obstructionism. White House spokesman Scott McClellan said:

It’s clear that the Democratic leadership is not interested in finding a middle ground; they’re not interested in information. The information has been provided and made available to people.

Sorry, Mr. McClellan, but Sen. Trent Lott (R-MS) doesn’t agree. Listen for yourself:

Trent Lott to White House: Release the Bolton documents


Way to go, Sen. Lott. Couldn’t have said it better myself.
