Tony Snow, R.I.P.

Posted by Richard on July 12, 2008

This morning, Tony Snow lost his battle with cancer. I'm greatly saddened by this. Snow was one of the good guys — intelligent, articulate, passionate but never abrasive or mean-spirited, full of optimism and joy and good humor. When he was host of Fox News Sunday, I looked forward to that show every week and watched it religiously. When he became White House press secretary, I cheered.

President George W. Bush:

"America has lost a devoted public servant and a man of character," Bush said in a statement.

"It was a joy to watch Tony at the podium each day. He brought wit, grace, and a great love of country to his work. His colleagues will cherish memories of his energetic personality and relentless good humor," Bush said.

"All of us here at the White House will miss Tony, as will the millions of Americans he inspired with his brave struggle against cancer," he said.

Former President George H. W. Bush: 

"He won the respect of even those who violently disagree with the president's proposals and policies. For that I think he'll be remembered. He brought a certain civility to this very contentious job," he said.

I'm very sorry that Tony Snow had only 53 short years on this Earth.

And I can't help but think that the Bush Administration would have been far, far more effective at communications and public relations if Tony Snow had been there from the beginning, instead of the inept and disloyal Scott McClellan.
