It is with a heavy heart that I report that former White House press secretary Tony Snow lost his battle with colon cancer and passed this morning at 2am. He was 53. The President Bush said in a statement from Camp David, "America has lost a devoted public servant and a man of character. 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." Tony had served as President Bush's press secretary for 17 months.
Tony Snow was the first host of Fox News Sunday and was always on Rush Limbaugh's short list as a replacement host. Tony was and able defender of both the principles of conservatism and the President's policies. He was a great American and he will greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
