The sharp criticism in the former press secretary’s new book dominates the morning shows.

The longtime Bush loyalists blasts the President and top aides on Iraq, Katrina, the Scooter Libby scandal and more.

NBC quotes a response from a former White House “senior adviser”:

“This book has left many of Scott’s closest friends puzzled and shocked… He never expressed any reservations while serving. To do so in a highly publicized book is what makes people lose faith in those who work in Washington.”

Karl Rove on Fox News:

“That doesn’t sound like the Scott I know, it sounds like a left-wing blogger… If he had these moral qualms, he should have spoken out about them.”

McClellan to appear on NBC’s “Today” show Thursday.
