Snow Job

Looks like a "Snow job" is in the works at the White House. News reports indicate that FOX TV commentator Tony Snow will be the new adminstration spokesman. Snow is expected to be named on Wednesday, replacing Scott McClellan.
Snow, a Fox News commentator has prior White House experience as a speech writer for the first President Bush.
Snow has said a lot of bad things about his new boss while pursuing his TV job. A few of these include: "His (Bush's) wavering conservatism has become an active concern among Republicans, who wish he would stop cowering under the bed and start fighting back against the likes of Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Joe Wilson," "The newly passive George Bush has become something of an embarrassment."
He said Bush had "lost control of the federal budget and cannot resist the temptation to stop raiding the public fisc. (treasury)"
Other Snow jobs on Bush: ‘An Embarrassment,’ ‘Impotent,’ ‘Doesn’t Seem To
Mean What He Says’
Bush has “lost control of the federal budget and cannot resist the temptation to stop raiding the public fisc. “George W. Bush and his colleagues have become not merely the custodians of the largest government in the history of humankind, but also exponents of its vigorous expansion.” “President Bush distilled the essence of his presidency in this year’s State of the Union Address: brilliant foreign policy and listless domestic policy.” “George Bush has become something of an embarrassment.”
Bush “has a habit of singing from the Political Correctness hymnal.” “No president has looked this impotent this long when it comes to defending presidential powers and prerogatives.” Bush “has given the impression that [he] is more eager to please than lead, and that political opponents can get their way if they simply dig in their heels and behave like petulant trust-fund brats, demanding money and favor, now!” “When it comes to federal spending, George W. Bush is the boy who can’t say no. In each of his three years at the helm, the president has warned Congress to restrain its spending appetites, but so far nobody has pushed away from the table mainly because the president doesn’t seem to mean what he says.” “The president doesn’t seem to give a rip about spending restraint.” “Bush, for all his personal appeal, ultimately bolstered his detractors’claims that he didn’t have the drive and work ethic to succeed.”
“Little in the character of demeanor of Al Gore or George Bush makes us say to ourselves: Now, this man is truly special." “George W. Bush, meanwhile, talks of a pillowy America, full of niceness and goodwill. Bush has inherited his mother’s attractive feistiness, but he also got his father’s syntax. At one point last week, he stunned a friendly audience by barking out absurd and inappropriate words, like a soul tortured with Tourette’s.” “He recently tried to dazzle reporters by discussing the vagaries of Congressional Budget Office economic forecasts, but his recitation of numbers proved so bewildering that not even his aides could produce a comrehensible translation. The English Language has become a minefield for the man, whose malaprops make him the political heir not of Ronald Reagan, but Norm Crosby.” “On the policy side, he has become a classical dime-store Democrat. He gladly will shovel money into programs that enjoy undeserved prestige, such as Head Start. He seems to consider it mean-spirited to shut down programs that rip-off taxpayers and mislead supposed beneficiaries.”
