Tony Snow on George W. Bush

Tony Snow is President Bush's new press secretary, replacing Scott McClellan. Snow has worked at Fox News, a reliably conservative, almost unflinchingly pro-Bush cable television network best known for its ridiculously biased coverage and outrageously unbalanced panel discussions. Here are a few of the phrases Snow has used to describe Bush within the last few months:

  • Something of an embarrassment

  • A leader who lost control of the federal budget

  • The architect of a listless domestic policy

  • A man who has a habit of singing from the political correctness hymnal
It will be interesting to see what he does as press secretary. Reportedly, Snow insisted on being in the loop on major policy discussions, which would give him a much greater role in formulating policy than his predecessors.
