Tony Snow on 2,500 dead U.S. soldiers: 'it's a number'
Damn, what a smooth operator. It makes you long for the days of Scotty “fetal position” McClellan when spokesbot Snow utters garbage like this:
Q Tony, American deaths in Iraq have reached 2,500. Is there any response or reaction from the President on that?
MR. SNOW: It’s a number, and every time there’s one of these 500 benchmarks people want something. The President would like the war to be over now. Everybody would like the war to be over now. And the one thing that we saw in Iraq this week is further testimony to the quality of the men and the women who are doing that, and the dedication and determination to try to ensure that the people of Iraq really do live in a free, effective democracy of their own creation and design.
