How long before Tony Snow goes dishonest

Posted by: Hammer / 1:38 PM

Tony Snow had his first gaggle today:

QUESTION: How are you going to make this administration more credible?

TONY SNOW: I'm not going to answer questions about credibility, other than to say that I'm eager to be here and I'm happy to be working with you.

QUESTION: Are you ever going to -- always going to tell the truth?


Always? Three Questions letter, we get this:

QUESTION: What about the Harris poll at 29 percent?

TONY SNOW: The interesting thing about the Harris poll is it asks questions that have not been asked before, for instance, rather than strict approval, it's excellent or very good. The President at this point is more focused on trying to tackle such issues as immigration.

Not true, Tony Snow. Harris asks "excellent or pretty good" not "very good". You'd think the press secretary would be able to read the newspapers.

Snow is trying to distinguish the Harris poll by making it sound like 29% of Americans think Bush is doing an excellent job. That's not the case. Snow is misleading or mistaken. Not a banner start for the new press guy.


How many questions does it take to get to the dishonest center of Bush administration hack? Let's ask Mr. Owl. "Ah-one, two, tha-ree." Crunch. "Three."
