McClellan: "Girls Gone Wild" hit the campaign trail- 05.24.04
Edited on Tue May-25-04 06:21 AM by ABB_15501
Straight from the White House Mouthpiece. Is this perfectly clear, now?

<snip>

Q Sure. Almost all of us have respected the President and Mrs. Bush's request that questioning of or about their twin daughters are out of bounds. But the twins are both now college graduates, and are going to work for the Bush-Cheney reelection campaign. And my question, so they are no more out of bounds for questions than you or the President's brother, Jeb, are they, Scott?

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, first of all, we hope that the media will continue to show respect for the daughters and allow them to --

Q Respect. If they're going to be in the campaign --

MR. McCLELLAN: -- go about their lives. But the daughters have also expressed a strong interest in helping the President on his reelection. And I know the President very much appreciates that.

Q Therefore, they are subject to questions, aren't they? If they're going to be in the political campaign, they're certainly subject to questions?

MR. McCLELLAN: Les, I think I addressed your question.

Go ahead.

Q You addressed it -- you evaded it.

MR. McCLELLAN: I think that the media, hopefully, will continue to show respect that -- and recognize that they are the President's daughters --

Q -- and ask respectful questions.

MR. McCLELLAN: -- and that they have their own lives.

Go ahead.

Q Do they have any questions for us? (Laughter.)

MR. McCLELLAN: They are not -- they are not the person on the ballot.

Go ahead.

Q If they're on the campaign trail, they're fair game to questions.

MR. McCLELLAN: Go ahead. Helen, I just made a comment on that. I just said we hope the media will continue to show respect for --

Q That doesn't connote that we don't --

MR. McCLELLAN: -- for the daughters.

Q That doesn't mean we don't respect them, but we can question them.

MR. McCLELLAN: Understood. Oh, understood.

Q They're out there.

Q We respect you. We respect you.

MR. McCLELLAN: You all have an important role to play.

Q It's my turn now.

3. Like father like daughter?
Remember the campaign that Bush went to go help in Alambama? The people there said he spent his time boozing it up and staying out late. Remember, the reports about Jenna and Barbara smoking weed and drinking?

This is the "warning" to the media that their wild activities on the campaign trail had better not be reported.

4. it is a warning to the white house
that the activities of the girls on the campaign trail will be reported. And probably reported in the light of "GWB did this 25 years ago, when he was supposed to be serving in the Air National Guard."

Only fools would let these two into the public spotlight. So I guess we'll be seeing a lot of them.
