I liked Tony Snow. He was a conservative, but he also seemed to be very VERY open-minded (“liberal” is supposed to be defined as ‘open-minded’), and he seemed interested in discussion rather than debate. He seemed like one of those really really nice people you’d want to be around whenever he was in the room. I also think he was the best Press Secretary any administration has had in my lifetime.

Godspeed Tony, thank you

UPDATE by Curt

As many regular readers may know, I was a big fan of Tony’s. I made lots of videos of his press briefings because I loved how he could take on the liberal media, and do it with class.

Man….Tony is going to be missed:

This one is very special. Its his first day on the job and he became quite emotional when talking about his battle with cancer. It’s a must-see:

President and Mrs. Bush Saddened by Death of Tony Snow

Laura and I are deeply saddened by the death of our dear friend, Tony Snow. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Jill, and their children, Kendall, Robbie, and Kristi. The Snow family has lost a beloved husband and father. And America has lost a devoted public servant and a man of character.

Tony was one of our Nation’s finest writers and commentators. He earned a loyal following with incisive radio and television broadcasts. He was a gifted speechwriter who served in my father’s Administration. And I was thrilled when he agreed to return to the White House to serve as my Press Secretary. 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.

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. One of the things that sustained Tony Snow was his faith – and Laura and I join people across our country in praying that this good man has now found comfort in the arms of his Creator.
