Visits to Syria by Senators irritates Tony Snow and the Bush Team
by Joe in DC - 12/15/2006 09:57:00 AM

Because the Bush White House has been so adept at foreign policy, the spokesperson is challenging the credibility of U.S. Senators who are visiting Syria. The New York Times reports on Tony Snow's "harsh words" about Bill Nelson and the other Senators who are headed to Damascus:
...................

To understand just how pathetic and puerile the Bush team is, note the press release they sent while Nelson was in Damascus:

While Mr. Nelson was in Damascus, the White House on Wednesday issued a statement under Mr. Bushís name in which the president called for the immediate release of Syrian political prisoners. ďSyrians deserve a government whose legitimacy is grounded in the consent of the people, not brute force,Ē the statement said.

Mr. Snow said Thursday that the statement was not timed to coincide with Mr. Nelsonís visit.

Sure, Tony. They make everything personal.
