Way to go, Tony Snow!

I'm glad the WH went with Tony Snow as Pres. Sec. Instead of going on defence all the time, the WH is on the offense supporting its plans. The drug plan and the great economy are being talked about and Tony is going right at the attackers to set the story right! About time WH. We need to win the mid-term elections and keep both houses. From Bill Sammon here and HT to Powerline from Newsbusters here.
Frist at the NYT.....
New White House Press Secretary Tony Snow is starting off in a combative mode against the press by issuing detailed rebuttals to what he considers unfair coverage of Bush.

“The New York Times continues to ignore America’s economic progress,” blared the headline of an e-mail sent to reporters Wednesday by the White House press office.

Then CBS.....
“CBS News misleadingly reports that only 8 million seniors have signed up for Medicare prescription drug coverage,” Wednesday’s missive said. “But 37 million seniors have coverage.” On Tuesday, the White House railed against “USA Today’s misleading Medicare story.”

“USA Today claims ‘poor, often minority’ Medicare beneficiaries are not enrolling in Medicare drug coverage,” the press office complained. “But by April, more than 70 percent of eligible African Americans, more than 70 percent of eligible Hispanics, and more than 75 percent of eligible Asian Americans are enrolled or have retiree drug coverage.”

***Update, Today Bill Sammon from theExaminer on Tony Snow:
Until this week, Bush administration officials rarely issued detailed rebuttals of articles they considered unfair. But Snow, who is expected to give his first public briefing Monday, has taken a more combative stance.

This week he has hit back at The New York Times and USA Today. On Thursday, he criticized the AP for a story headlined: “Army Guard, Reserve fall short of April recruiting goals.”

The White House countered: “The Army National Guard, Air Force Reserve, and Marine Corps Reserve all have exceeded or achieved their year-to-date recruitment goals.”

The troops are not fractured like the MSM wants to portray as. They are more strong, more determined, and more then ever to support the Mission. And likewise, the loved ones who are at home support the mission also.

I love it. This should have been done a long time ago. :)

I'm glad they went with him.
